Pre and Post Care
This course of treatments will usually be six sessions 4-6 weeks apart. Best results are obtained with consistent appointments.
Please limit your sun exposure for two weeks pre and post treatments. If you must be out in the sun always wear sunscreen. Laser Smooth recommends ASAP 50+ Hydrating Defence.
While fake tans are preferable to sun exposure, please plan your fake tan appointments for after your laser hair rejuvenation sessions. Fake tan can affect your settings and create a higher risk of burning.
No makeup/lotion/deodorant on the day of your appointment on the treatment area.
It is the customers responsibility to cover all tattoos close to the treated areas before treatment. If it is a small tattoo covering with a bandaid might suffice, however if it is larger then cover with a white adhesive bandage allowing 2-3 cm overlap. Outlining in white skin safe marker is an additional safeguard. Treating over a tattoo will result in burning, blistering and possible distortion of your artwork.
There must be a six month wait after stopping Accutane before commencing laser skin rejuvenation.
Post-Care - First 24 Hours
Redness, bumps and a minor sunburn feel can be common in the treatment area and may last up to 2 or more hours. If you are sensitive you can apply a cool pack or we recommend the ASAP Soothing Gel applied as often as required.
