TAKE CARE

We will go over specific recommendations for your unique treatment, but the following do’s and don’t’s are a great start to keep your skin healthy and your treatments effective.

Prepare for your electrolysis visit with these essential steps:

The majority of education occurs beyond the confines of formal schooling; and so, it was with me; the completion of electrolysis school was just the beginning of my learning.

  • Hydrate! Being well-hydrated is essential for a successful treatment, so drink up for a few days before your appointment.

  • Keep your skin moisturized with a simple facial moisturizer or body lotion.

  • Come to your appointment clean and fresh.

  • Don’t wear makeup (for face work) or deodorant (for underarm work) to your appointment. Removing makeup takes up your valuable treatment time!

  • If you use retinols or other harsh ingredients in your skincare, take a break at least one week before your facial treatment.

  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine directly before your treatment. These dehydrate your skin and may make you more sensitive to pain.

  • If you have any medical conditions that impact your skin, heart, blood, or hair, or if you are pregnant, please consult your physician before coming for electrolysis treatment.

After Your Visit Care Guidelines

  1. Resist the urge to touch, rub, scratch, or pick at the treated area to prevent infection.

  2. Apply a cold compress or ice pack to help alleviate swelling and redness.

  3. Refrain from sun exposure for 48 hours after treatment to help prevent hyper-pigmentation.

  4. Tiny crusts or inner red dots may appear the day after electrolysis, allow them to naturally resolve during the healing process.

  5. Avoid use strong/active skincare ingredients after facial electrolysis for at least 48 hours.

  6. Steer clear of any activity which causes over heating or sweating.

  7. If needed, manage hair in between treatments by clipping with scissors or shaving. NEVER tweeze, thread, wax, as these methods can prolong the overall treatment duration. For optimal results, refrain from any hair removal until your next appointment. If maintaining visible hair, is challenging, inquire about shorter, more frequent appointments to keep your visible growth to a minimum.
