See our salon policies and aftercare here.
Don’t expose skin to UV (sun exposure or the use of tanning beds) or self-tan for at
least 2 weeks before and/or between laser or IPL treatments
Please arrive to every appointment (not including your patch test as we need to see where the hair is growing) with the area being treated shaved. (not waxed or plucked as this will effect your results)
Don’t depilate with waxing, plucking or threading (shaving or depilatory creams are
acceptable) before and/or between laser or IPL treatments, as this totally removes
the hair and there will be no target for light-based therapy. Shave or cut the hair between treatments to enable continued natural regrowth of hair to occur
Don’t use bleaching creams, or perfumed products (e.g. aromatherapy oils) for 24-48hrs before treatment sessions
Avoid swimming in strong chlorinated water immediately before a laser or IPL
Avoid exfoliating, microdermabrasion or peels for 1 week before treatment sessions
Avoid wearing tight clothing when attending for treatment sessions
Protect the skin from sun exposure with suitable clothing and use of sun block SPF 30+ before first treatment and between subsequent treatment sessions but do NOT use sun blocking creams within 24hrs of scheduled treatments.
NB. Hot and humid weather conditions can aggravate skin in the period immediately before treatment.
Please notify us if you have had sun exposure and we will rearrange your appointment.
It is important to update us of changes to medication during your treatment.
Issues happen and we will always try to resolve them. Please report any problem with your nails within two days.
