Post-Care:

  • Immediately after treatment there may be erythema (redness) and edema (swelling) at the treatment site. This usually last 2 hours or longer. On rare occasion, the erythema may last up to 10 days. The treatment area may feel like a sunburn for a few hours after the treatment but it will subside.

  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated areas. If a blister or crusting appears, or you have a histamine reaction (itching) please call Ultimate Image. You may need antiobiotic ointment or hydrocortisone cream. This is a possibility with any laser treatment.

  • Hydrocortisone and sunscreen may be used post-treatment.

  • No heat exposure like saunas, steam rooms, jacuzzis, extremely hot showers or strenuous activities for a minimum of 48-hours post-treatment.

  • NO WORKING OUT FOR 24 HOURS AFTER TREATMENT!

  • Avoid sun exposure. You are at risk for hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation if you do get sun exposure.

  • Avoid exfoliating scrubs or brushes for 24-48 hours post-treatment.

  • Avoid electrolysis, tweezing, threading, bleaching, depilatory products, and/or waxing. This can disturb the hair follicle which will affect your treatment outcomes.

  • Up to 2-weeks post-treatment, you may notice hair falling out of the treated areas. This is not new growth, this is your laser treatment working! (Note: You can clean/remove the hair by washing or wiping the area with a wet cloth.)

  • Treat your skin gently for at least 24-hours after your treatment.
