After Care Instructions for Permanent Hair Removal Electrolysis

  • Do- apply antiseptic cream to treated area 3 times in the 24 hours following your treatment
  • Do – if your skin feels hot after treatment; bathe with a cold or iced salt water solution regularly in the hours following treatment, this reduces inflammation and speeds up the healing process. (Add half a teaspoon of salt to one-cup of boiling water and chill).
  • Do – apply sun block daily to prevent sunlight from interfering with the healing process.
