Skincare Tips:

Moisturise your skin

Keep your skin moisturised to help soothe any dryness or irritation. Use gentle, fragrance-free moisturisers to avoid further irritation for 3 days.

Avoid Products:

Avoid using harsh skincare products, such as exfoliants or retinoids, on the treated area for at least a week after your laser appointment.

Gentle Cleansing:

Cleanse the treated area gently with a mild cleanser to keep it clean and prevent infection. Cleanse in a gentle motion and pat dry with a towel.

Patience is Key:

Be patient with your skin as it heals. It may take several weeks to see the results of your laser hair removal treatment. Results can be seen after 2 weeks.

Important Information: 

We prioritise your safety and well-being. All clients will be required to fill out an online consultation form before their appointment to ensure everything is suitable for the treatment. This allows us to perform your treatment efficiently and safely.
