Beware of Sun Exposure: After your treatment, your skin may sunburn more easily. Avoid exposing your skin to the sun and any infra-red lamp or solarium for a minimum of two days. You should not receive a treatment if your skin is sunburned.
In-grown Hairs: Many people are subject to in-grown hairs due to the hair being out of the follicle for weeks giving the dead skin cells a chance to form over the mouth of the follicle, thus causing the hair to grow under the skin when it reappears. To prevent this from happening you should soak 3 times per week in lukewarm water with a 1/2 cup of Dead Sea salts for 10 minutes. Exfoliate for a few more minutes. Be sure to re-hydrate your skin afterwards with body lotion. Ask your technician for suggestions to suit your personal requirements. The use of Maria’s Body Scrub product on a regular basis will help prevent ingrown hairs from forming.
Your Next Appointment: The best results occur when you 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 usual time span between appointments is 4-6 weeks; perhaps a little more often in the summer. 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.
Please do not use a razor or depilatory creams between appointments. Be sure not to
exfoliate the day before, the day of, or the day after the treatment.
Remember – Hair growth needs to be only 1/8” to be removed.
Diminishing Hair Growth: Depending on how dense the hair growth is on each individual, it ranges from 18 months for people with light hair growth to 3 years or more for people with heavy growth. Since the best age to start is at puberty, we encourage you to influence young girls to start using sugar paste instead of shaving.
