absorb a portion of the energy that should be striking the hair follicle, which will impact the desired results. If you should be
exposed to strong sunlight for any length of time during your treatment schedule, wear SPF 30 to protect the treatment area
On the day of treatment, DO NOT use moisturizer, make-up, deodorant or apply oil of any kind to any area that will be treated.

hair growth occurs in 4 weeks, while body hair usually takes 4-6 weeks.

permanently removed should become finer and lighter after treatment.
