Hair Removal AfterCare
Aftercare is an important part of your permanent hair removal process. After your electrolysis appointment, our Los Angeles electrologist will explain what to expect, how you can minimize any discomfort and when to return for your next appointment, if another session is needed.
Ensure The Best Results From Your Electrolysis Permanent Hair Removal Treatment
To maintain comfort after electrolysis and promote the best results, here are some aftercare recommendations:
- Ice the treated are for two minutes or less each time for as many times as you can within 12 hours after the electrolysis treatment.
- Lightly apply Neosporin or polysporin if you have dry or combination skin. Acne-prone or oily skin should not use Neosporin or polysporin. Another option is aloe vera directly from the plant or organic, all natural aloe vera gel. Bacitracin and hydrocortizone can be applied if you know you’re are not allergic to its contents.
- Drinks lots of water to stay hydrated.
- Eat within one hour after the electrolysis. This will keep you grounded and the nervous system will balance itself automatically.
What Can I Expect During The Healing Process?
Following your treatment, there is a possibility of redness in the treated area. This is both normal and temporary and is part of the electrolysis process. Different body and face hairs have different frequency levels. Redness will depend on your skin type and on the areas of your body that have higher or lower frequency to remove the hairs. For relief, you can ice the area and/or apply aloe vera gel or Neosporin.
