XEO Laser Treatment Q & A
The Cosmetic Office of Dr. Platt
What post-treatment care measures should I take?
All three laser treatments take less than an hour and require no downtime. Side effects are minimal, but you can minimize them and improve your results with proper aftercare protocol.
After ProWave laser hair reduction, you should avoid direct sun exposure and wear sunscreen. You’ll also want to avoid heat from the bath, sauna, or whirlpool. You won’t want to use skin irritants like retinol creams or astringents on treated skin. Shaving or plucking in between treatments interferes with the results.
Limelight treatments may cause redness and puffiness, so you can use cold compresses to bring down the swelling. However, you should refrain from using bare ice because it can interfere with treatment results. Dr. Platt recommends avoiding sun exposure and tanning between treatments.
Genesis treatments don’t require any aftercare, but you can use a cold compress for any affected spots.
