Preping For Treatment


  • Stop tweezing/waxing! However, you may trim the hairs with cuticle scissors.

  • Stop shaving at least three days before you come in for treatment. The hairs need to be long enough to be grabbed with a professional tweezer.

  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Since ample moisture content is one of the key factors in the success of electro-epilation, please consume as much pure water as possible at least 24 hours before treatment. In the hours directly before your appointment, please try to drink at least 24-48 ounces. I cannot emphasize this enough, as simple hydration (inside and externally) will make your treatments much more effective and comfortable. Skip your morning cup o’Joe, especially in the hours before your appointment. Please also steer clear of sodas or other stimulants. Your nervous system will be calmer and your hair follicles will respond better to treatment.

  • Moisturize the areas to be treated topically in the morning before your appointment as per your regular skin care routine.

  • Please be clean and fresh when having bodywork treatments. If you’ve just come from your daily workout, kindly freshen up in one of the salon restrooms prior to treatment.

  • For underarm treatment, please skip your deodorant or antiperspirant on the day of your appointment. The follicle mouth will be more receptive to treatment as a result.

  • If you wish to wear make-up in the area to be treated on the day of treatment then that will be fine. However, please remember that make-up will be removed from the area whilst cleansing immediately prior to treatment, so it may be better to avoid wearing it in the first place.

  • Most clients find they require no pain relief at all, however if you are anxious about the discomfort, then you can take ibuprofen or paracetamol an hour before your appointment. If further help is required, EMLA is available by prescription from your GP. This is a topical local anesthetic cream containing Lidocaine and Prilocaine, and it needs to be generously applied to the treatment area an hour before your appointment, and covered with an occlusive dressing. Many people cover the cream with saran wrap. 

  • Most importantly, RELAX! Breathe and enjoy the fact that you are becoming hair free permanently!!! Yay!
