Immediately following the treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment, patients may notice what appears to be a re-growth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of the treatment and are not re-growing. Between treatments, patients should not wax or pluck hair, but can shave.
Following the treatment, patients can immediately return to their normal activities. Because some redness may occur, sunscreen should be applied to any treated areas exposed to the sun.
