Before Your Treatment

  • 4-6 DAYS BEFORE Shave both underarms; by the time you come in for your procedure, there will be some hair growth to identify the area to be treated.
  • If you forget to shave, we will trim the area for you.

Day of Your Treatment

  • Please come to the office without deodorant, creams, gels, or lotions on treatment areas. Easily cleaned top with a loose structure
    • For women – tank top, sports bra, camisole
    • For men – tank top or loose T-shirt

What to Expect

  • After the procedure, be advised that you will have swelling and redness in the treated area for a few days
  • Your underarms could be tender for up to two weeks, sometimes longer, as they heal from the procedure.
  • Though less common, it is possible that some small blisters may develop in the treatment area.
  • Minor side effects can last several weeks such as: swelling in the arm or torso; altered sensation (numbness or tingling), redness or bruising in the underarm or adjacent area.
  • Other minor effects that may last longer are bumps you can feel under the skin and darkening of the skin. These should gradually disappear over time.
  • Partial hair loss may be long-term.

After Your Treatment

  • Immediately ice the treated area. (Wrap the ice packs in a towel to prevent frostbite as your skin is still numb and you may not feel the full effects of the ice.) Continue to ice for the next few days to reduce swelling which may last for a few weeks.
  • AVOID vigorous activity for a minimum of 72 hours, ideally one week.
  • A non-prescription anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen will reduce the normal inflammation and discomfort that usually occurs for a few days after the procedure.
    Apply an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment to prevent infection for 3 days after the procedure.
  • Keep your underarms clean while they are healing from the procedure. Use gentle liquid soap to cleanse the underarms twice a day.
  • AVOID shaving within the first 7 days. Should any swelling persist, avoid shaving until it subsides.
  • Use a new razor when shaving is resumed.
  •  applying antiperspirant/deodorant within the first five days. Do not apply over any broken skin, such as nicks from shaving. Use a new antiperspirant/deodorant should you resume use.
  • Wear a loose top for the next few days to prevent underarm irritation.

Call our Office:

  • If you develop blisters or open sore in the treatment area.
  • If your side effects worsen or persist for longer than 2 weeks
  • If you are experiencing significant pain that is not relieved by the recommended pain medication listed above

Updated May 2022
We have been fully operational since May of 2020. This includes skincare and our non-invasive center (ENIC).
We know that so much of this pandemic caused an inconvenience for you, but we are delighted to see a return to normalcy. 
We will continue to be vigilant in our approach to Covid 19. For over two decades, we have considered safety as our most important prerogative — and there has never been a more important time to put that to use.
Here are some things we’re doing to ensure you are protected and that we maintain this facility as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) zone:

Patient Flow and Clinical Office Space

We now have a well-tested protocol of texting patients for control of flow for consultations.
We are assigning everyone to hourly wipe-downs of high-use areas with approved sanitizing wipes.
We are asking that no one wait in the waiting area.
We are coming up with protocols for room wipe-downs after each patient visit.
Every staff member will always wear a mask while in the office.
Every staff member will sanitize or wash hands after every interaction.
Implementation of virtual pre-ops, nursing visits, and questions.

Operating Room Experience

Similar precautions and questionnaires will be provided to establish Covid-19 Clear Status.
All staff will always wear a mask. All staff will always wear gloves.
Hand washing will be done for any patient interaction.
Specific wipe-down of our operating room, recovery, and pre-op areas will be performed.
We will minimize accompanying caretakers to only one. Those caretakers will be treated just like the patients.
Anesthesia Experience
Every anesthesia staff will wear goggles and other protective equipment during intubation.
Our anesthesiologists have been fully trained and are implementing all precautions for prevention of Covid-19 spread.
All circuits will be changed between each patient.
Full wipe-down of surfaces and floors will be performed.
We will implement a time-out protocol to confirm the Covid-19 Clear Status of every patient.

As you can see, we are taking this very seriously. We fully understand that this will cause some inconvenience in the short term, but realize that it is for the best.
Although Covid-19 has been a serious issue, we are seeing a resumption of normalcy. We continue to monitor this situation on a real-time basis, and we will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
When you see us in action, you’ll realize that you have put your trust in the right practice.
