What To Expect On The Day Of Treatment
Please shave any treatment areas (no tweezing!) 24-hours prior to your appointment. Typically, there is little to no down time after treatments, and the treatment is so quick and easy, patients can come on their lunch breaks. A gel is applied to your skin where you will receive treatment. You will also be provided eye shields to protect yourself from the light during treatment. You will feel cooling while the hand piece is gliding over the treatment area to provide a comfortable session. You may also feel a slight rubber band like snapping when the energy is being delivered into your skin and hair follicles. This sensation disappears almost immediately, and treatments take just minutes depending on the size of the area.
After the treatment, the gel will be removed and a cooling gel may be applied to your skin. For a few days after your treatment, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn but can resume all your normal activities immediately following treatment.
