Electrolysis Post-Treatment Care

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. Itcan 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.
