Patients on average need a minimum of 6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal hair reduction.
WHY DO YOU NEED A SERIES OF TREATMENTS SPACED APART
Avoid tanning beds and sunless tanning products to prevent adverse reactions. We will be unable to treat you if you have a tan.
Avoid sun exposure greater than 30 minutes, even if wearing sunscreen.
Treatment area must be clean-shaven 12-24 hours prior to treatment. Unshaved clients will be rescheduled. Razors are not provided in the clinics.
Skin must be clean and free of makeup, lotions, oils, deodorant, sunless tanning products, numbing cream, etc. Products on the skin can increase the likelihood of adverse reactions from the laser.
Avoid physical activities that increase body temperature for at least 2 hours before treatments.
Mild redness and swelling of the hair follicles may occur (histamine reaction). This is normal and should lessen with time.
Avoid picking or scratching the skin.
Cool cloths may be applied or Aloe.
Avoid sun exposure, and other sources of UV light for 7 days post treatment. Careful sun exposure of no more than 30 minutes may be resumed from days 7-14 post treatment.
Avoid tanning beds for 14 days post treatment.
Apply a zinc oxide sunscreen (SPF 30+) and use daily throughout treatments.
Avoid activities that increase body temperature for at least 24 hours after treatment, or longer if redness and bumps persists.
If redness, swelling or itching continues, an over-the-counter cortisone cream and/or an oral antihistamine (Benadryl) may be used in addition to cool cloths.
Do not apply ice directly to the treated areas.
CLEAR + BRILLIANT
You will experience mild discomfort and might feel a snapping when the laser pulses on your skin. Afterward, you’ll experience mild redness and residual heat sensation up to several hours post treatment. You will start to see brown spots come to the surface in the next few days called "peppering". Those spots will flake off to reveal repaired skin.
You may feel a warming sensation on your skin. There may be some mild redness and next-to-no residual heat. Many patients say this treatment is similar to a relaxing facial but with way more benefits!
This procedure can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or telangiectasia) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large, blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates for this treatment. Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the hand piece.
