Treatment procedure and instructions
Procedure of the treatment
The body part is touched with the handpiece of the laser, during which light pulses are emitted. This may cause a slight tingling or pricking sensation, which is normal. Likewise, a slight reddening after the session is completely harmless. This subsides after 2-3 days at the latest.
What should be considered before the treatment?
Melanin is also found in the skin; therefore, it also reacts to the light impulses. The tanner the skin, the more melanin it contains. For this reason, intensive sunbathing and visits to the solarium should be avoided for about 4 weeks before the start of treatment to minimize the risk of skin irritation. In the worst case, the sensitive skin can react, and a pigment disorder is the result. As a supportive measure, you can also use sunscreen SPF 50.
Also, refrain from epilating or bleaching at least 4 weeks before starting treatment. All other hair removal methods, such as plucking, or waxing should also be refrained from. These methods remove the hair along with the hair root and this results in an ineffective treatment.
However, you should shave the body area the day before the treatment to prepare the skin in the best possible way. If you are planning a treatment in the facial region, you should also clean the skin thoroughly.
