If you have been shaving allow the hair to grow a couple of days so we can see what we will be treating. If you have been waxing or using depilatory creams , you will need to wait 4-6 weeks until the hair has regrown. Do not sunbathe, use sunbeds, spray tan or fake tan for 2 weeks prior to your treatment as tanning of any sort can lead to superficial burning. Avoid perfumes or any alcohol based treatments on the area to be treated and inform your therapist if you are on any form of acne medication or topical vitamin A. Shave the day before your treatment.
