Electrolysis Post-Treatment Care

Electrolysis Post-Treatment Care

It is normal for the treated area to be red or slightly swollen. Both of these reactions will disappear within an hour, but sometimes can last a little longer.  To avoid complications, follow these simple rules.

  • Keep area clean and dry. Avoid use of ointments or creams, unless they are antibiotic.

  • Avoid touching treated area – fingers spread germs.

  • Cleanse treated area morning and night with a mild soap and water, pat dry and do not rub while washing or drying skin.

  • Use of tanning salons or direct sunlight should be avoided for 24-48 hours after the treatment.

  • We suggest the purchase of medicated makeup in a shade complimenting your skin tone to aid in healing. It can also be used as a cover-up for problem area or other blemishes.

  • No deodorant for 48 hours after underarm treatment.  Use sea breeze or witch-hazel instead.


Occasionally, a tiny scab may appear a few days following treatment. This is normal – however, DO NOT forcibly remove this scab.  It will heal and come off by itself.

For best results observe this routine for 1-2 days following the treatment.
