the hair should be appx. 1/4" long or the length of a grain of rice.

(♥) drink plenty of water. urine can cause discomfort to open follicles and is best if diluted.
(♥) apply a cold compress to the heat sensitive area after treatment. cooling will help to constrict blood vessels and relieve discomfort.
(♥) shower immediately after exercising to keep follicles clear and bacteria free.
(♥) book your appts 4-6 weeks apart. cancel or reschedule at least 24 hours before your appt.

(✖) excessive activity immediately after appt. perspiration and friction could be irritating to the area.
(✖) apply lotions, gels, or creams. avoid fragranced or alcohol based products.
(✖) shave between treatments. the goal is to remove the root of the hair so it grows back softer, finer, and fewer.
