In the 24 hours prior to your appointment, please do not exfoliate the treatment area or apply any creams, oils, or lotions to the area.
As the hair follicles will be open for up to 24 hours after treatment, in order to minimize risk of infection, please avoid the following activities during this 24 hr period: Sex, Swimming, Hot Tubs/Baths, Saunas, Sweating, Work Outs or anything that might introduce bacteria into the hair follicles.
Also, to avoid irritating the treated area, please do not use soap or apply anything containing artificial ingredients on the treated area for 24 hours after treatment and do not exfoliate the treated area for 48 hours.
Tiny red dots or bumps can appear on the skin where hairs were removed. These usually disappear within 24 hours. If a hair follicle is very large, a drop of blood may appear during sugaring.
