Hair Removal Post-Op Instructions
For the next three days (starting today)
- Stop all topical medications (i.e. Retin-A, Renova, acne medicines).
- Use a simple cleanser to wash the area twice a day.
- Apply morning and night, a small amount of cortisone sample to red areas only.
- Moisturizer maybe applied over if needed.
After the third day, resume your normal regimen – i.e. topical products, deodorants…
It is common after a treatment to experience redness, dryness, increased sensitivity and tingling. Residual treated hairs may be gently removed. The area must be protected from sun exposure to prevent the treated area from healing dark and for additional treatments.
