Important to note
It is recommended to shave the hair on the day before the treatment, this way the skin can recover. However, epilation, waxing or sugaring should be avoided 4 weeks before the start of the treatment. Since those methods of temporary hair removal remove the hair root, the energy of the light cannot be optimally transmitted into the depth. Since hair is only every 4 weeks in the anagen-phase, it is absolutely necessary to follow the treatment cycles of 4 weeks.
Skin areas which are tattooed, cannot be treated. The risk of the colour pigments reacting to the light impulses is possible and can affect the health of the patient. For this reason, such areas are carefully covered.
It is similar with skin pigments such as moles. As these contain more melanin, special caution is required. Therefore we cover such areas with light-repelling cloths and do not treat them.
