All hair is temporarily disabled during each treatment, none of the hair follicles are removed hence, a sequence of treatments is necessary in order for results to become apparent. The number of times needed also varies from person to person.
Slight redness and swelling lasting a few hours is common. In rare cases, discomfort or small red bumps may last up to two days.
It is strongly recommended to use sunblock SPF + 30 for 2 weeks after treatment. Do not irritate the skin by scrubbing, exfoliating, or taking hot water showers for 24 hours.

You must avoid sun exposure, tanning beds or tanning lotions/sprays for at least four weeks before treatment and two weeks after procedure. The slightest tan makes it harder for the laser light to pass through your skin and heat the follicle.
If you are taking Accutane you CANNOT have laser treatments, they must wait 6 months from the date they discontinue use. For patients taking antibiotics, they must wait 1-2 weeks (depending on what kind of antibiotics they use) from the date they discontinue use.
