Since various hairs will enter their growth cycle at different times, approximately 6-8 treatments minimum, at intervals of 6-8 weeks apart (varies from patient to patient) are necessary to disable most of the follicles in a given area. Treated areas such as the face usually require more frequent treatments whereas legs and back require less. Please keep in mind that every patient and every circumstance is different and that the number of treatments needed and outcome of the treatments may vary from one patient to the other. Make sure you discuss ALL medical conditions and medications with our Laser technician as certain conditions (like PCOS and hormonal Imbalance), and certain Medications, will affect your results.
- Please shave the entire area you desire treated within 1-2 days of your planned treatment (stubble is fine). Shaving more than 2 days prior may result in less effective and more uncomfortable treatments.
- No tweezing, plucking, waxing, epilating, threading or using creams such as Nair, ONLY SHAVE OR TRIM. You may shave whenever you need to. Do not remove hair from the root before or for the duration of your treatments. Hair needs to be in the follicle in order to be targeted by our laser devices, which targets the pigment in your hair.
- Please do not wear makeup to your session for facial hair removal. All traces of makeup must be removed in order to avoid any type of damage from the lasers.
- Use a broad spectrum SPF 30 (or greater) sunblock before AND after your treatments. Avoid sun exposure/tanning prior to and after treatment for minimum 2-3 weeks. Sun exposure/tanning cause treatments to be less effective and make complications after treatment more likely.

- Avoid exfoliating agents AHA/BHA, acne medication or any irritating or drying products at least 1 week prior to each treatment if you are receiving laser hair removal on the areas where those topicals are being applied. This can make your skin more susceptible to damage from the laser.

- Inform us if you are currently on the medication Accutane or have been in the last 6 months. This can make your skin more susceptible to damage from the laser.
- Please notify Skintellect of any changes in topical or oral prescription medications, as they may have an effect on the ability to safely or effectively provide treatment.
- Please avoid antibiotics and/or any photosensitizing medication during the time of treatment. For patients who are on antibiotics please allow 2 weeks from the last day of medication to come in for an appointment. If taking any hormone stimulating or anti-depression medication, please notify our technician prior to treatment as some medications can make you photosensitive and susceptible to damage from the laser.

After Your Laser Hair Removal:

- You may also notice during and immediately after your session the smell of burned hairs. This is normal and will subside with cleansing.
- Do not rub, or pick the treated area. Do not use any loofahs or abrasive scrubs for at least 3 days or until any redness and sensitivity subsides.
- Avoid strenuous sports activities/ gym or hot water/ saunas/ Jacuzzi for up to 24 hours after treatment to minimize irritation and prolonged redness.
