You should avoid using any creams or lotions the day of your appointment.
For best results hair should be approximately 1⁄4 inch. If hair is longer it should be trimmed with scissors or an electric trimmer prior to arriving for your appointment.
Things to avoid for the first 24 hours after hair removal:
Deodorant if you had your underarms done
Heat, such as baths/steam rooms
Direct sunlight or tanning beds
Perspiration. Let this be your excuse to skip going to the gym!
Exfoliation is the key to preventing ingrown hairs. Using a natural bristle body brush, exfoliating cloth or brush, or body scrub two to three times per week you’ll keep dead skin cells from trapping new hair growth under your skin. Or try our O.R.G Mineral Body Peel, simply use it every 48 hours to exfoliate your skin!
The second step is to keep your skin healthy and moisturized. A good rule of thumb is, whenever your skin gets wet (after every shower or bath) moisturize with Cuccio whipped body butter!
Slight irritation with redness and bumps is completely normal and should disappear within 24 hours.
For best results establish a routine suitable to your hair growth. Since diminishment of hair growth is a gradual process and is achieved by regular treatments over a period of time. The average time span between appointments is 3-4 weeks.
It is important to note that due to the changes that may occur in your hormonal balance from time to time, you may have unusually heavy growth perhaps once a year. This is quite normal. Keep in mind that the diminishment of hair growth will occur gradually, despite the occasional heavy growth and this doesn’t mean that the treatment isn’t working or that your hair growth is being stimulated.
