Bristol Electrolysis

After Care for Electrolysis

·         Apply a calming antiseptic cream to treated area 3 times in the first 24 hours.

Apply 1 hour after treatment, before bedtime and the next morning.

Sterex natural Aloe Vera or witch Hazel gel is recommended.

·         If the skin feels hot after treatment, bathe with cold salt water.

To make the solution use a teaspoon of salt to a cup of warm water and then place in a fridge.  This will help the healing process and reduces inflammation.

·         Apply a sun block daily on the exposed area.

As the sun and U.V. can interfere with the healing process, do not tan for 2 weeks after treatment.

·         Do not rub or pick the skin.  Small pin prick scabs may appear.  Allow to heal and fall off naturally.

·         Do not wear make-up or perfumed products for 24 hours after treatment.

Light make up can be worn after 24 hours but care must be taken when applying and removing, so not to aggravate the skin.  Sterex Apres cosmetic cream in a light or medium shade can be applied after treatment to aid cover up.

·         Do not swim for 48 hours as Chlorine can irritate the skin.

·         No heat treatments (saunas, steam rooms, hot baths/showers) or excessive exercise for 24 hours.

Please let Electrologist know of any unusual reactions immediately and if you have any questions or concerns, please call.
