BBL Forever Bare Aftercare Instructions – Refine Aesthetics

BBL Forever Bare Hair Reduction

Client response can vary after a hair reduction treatment. Redness and swelling around the hair follicles in the treated area are some􀆟mes noted within a few minutes after the completion of the procedure and typically resolve within 24-48 hours. A sunburn sensation in the area treated is also normal and expected.

The treated area must be treated with care. BE GENTLE!

Do not scratch or pick at your skin. Until sensitivity has completely subsided, avoid all of the following:

  • Applying make up over the treated areas.
  • Use of scented lotions or soaps, deodorants, Retin A, glycolic/salicylic and alpha/hydroxy acids, acne creams or gels, loofa sponges, and aggressive scrubbing.
  • Hot or cold water, wash with tepid water.
  • Shaving
  • Swimming pools and spas with multiple chemicals/chlorine.
  • Activities that cause excessive perspiration.

A cold compress or an ice pack can be used to provide comfort if the treated area is especially warm. This is typically only needed within the first 12 hours after the treatment.

Vitamin E or Aloe Vera applied to the treatment area may provide a soothing effect.

Post treatment discomfort is typically minimal but if the area is very uncomfortable, you may use an oral pain reliever.

In the unusual case of crusting of the skin in the treated area, apply an antibiotic ointment twice a day to the affected areas. Do not pick at these areas, this may result in infection and/or scarring.

If the skin is broken or a blister appears, apply an antibiotic ointment and contact the Refine Office. Keep the affected area moist and avoid direct sunlight.

In rare cases, hives have been reported after laser hair reduction treatments. If you experience an irritated raised rash after treatment contact the office. Benadryl may be taken to help relieve the itchiness if you have no contraindications to Benadryl.

Do not use any other hair removal methods or products on the treated area during the course of your laser treatments (tweezing, waxing, and depilatories), it will prevent you from achieving your best results.

Strictly avoid any sun exposure to the treated area for a minimum of 7 days after the procedure for laser. The treated area is more prone to sunburn and pigment change. Use a sunblock with a protection factor of 30+.

Hair may take up to 4 weeks or in some cases, as little as a few days, to fall out following treatment. Do not be alarmed if hairs appear to be growing during this time.

Subsequent treatments are based upon your esthetician’s recommendation and are typically 4-8 weeks apart. The number of treatments required will depend on the body location, the amount of hair present, the character of the hair and your skin type.
