If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't zap the hairs. Plucking, waxing, threading, or tweezing before your hair removal appointment reduces the number of hairs your electrologist can remove.
Ask your electrologist for aftercare advice. We can recommend the product that is right for your skin and treatment program.
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
