It's okay to shave between treatments, but never, ever tweeze!
Did you know?
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That's why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Drinking plenty of water helps unwanted hair slide right out.
Ask your electrologist for aftercare advice. We can recommend the product that is right for your skin and treatment program.

Electrology is the only hair removal method recognized as permanent by the FDA.
Did you know?
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.
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
Clean skin releases unwanted hair more easily. Remove your makeup before your appointment, so the hair follicles are clean and accessible.
Did you know?
Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.
Talk to your electrologist about any questions or concerns. We want your experience to be as comfortable and effective as possible.
