No, Please Don't

Use Serious Retinoids

Stop using retinoids at least 1-week prior to treatment.

Clog Pores

Refrain from applying make-up, deodorants or any other products that may clog the pores of the area being treated.

Bleach Hair

Never bleach hair right before an appointment. The harder the hair is to see, the harder it is to remove. If you bleach in between appointments, allow enough time for your hair to grow back in so your electrologist can see your roots {approx 1/16” to 1/8”}.

Expose Yourself to Sun

Stay out of the sun for at least 48-hrs prior to electrolysis treatment to avoid dilation of the blood vessels.


Beautyland Recommend

Relax + Distract

Try to get as comfortable as possible during your treatment.

Keep yourself distracted. Try meditation or engaging in a conversation with your electrologist.

Tough It Out

Work as close to your pain threshold as possible to get the most effective treatment. You will also begin to build up a tolerance making future visits less uncomfortable.

Managing Pain & Discomfort

Apply a numbing cream as directed on the label before arriving to your appointment. You can buy it from the pharmacy or ask your doctor to prescribe one that’s a bit stronger.

For added relief, take a pain relief tablet. Use as directed on the label.

Avoid caffeine, alcohol & chocolate 24-hrs prior.

Avoid treatment during menstruation because some women find they are more sensitive during this time.

First and foremost, please ensure that you keep the treated area meticulously clean and dry for the first 48 hours post treatment.

It is important to take extra care of the treated area, especially within the first 48 hours* of treatment. This will give the skin a chance to settle, allow the heat reaction in the skin to return to normal and prevent infection of the treated open follicles.


  • Redness, swelling and sensitivity of the skin in the area which has been treated up to 48 hours*

  • The treated area and surrounding skin may feel hot for up to 48 hours*

  • Pin dot crusting or small scabs may appear within the treated area

  • The skin may itch as the healing process takes place



  • Sterex Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera gel should be applied liberally using clean, damp cotton wool immediately after electrolysis to soothe, calm redness and prevent infection. Continue applying Aloe Vera gel for the next 21 days.

  • To prevent irritation and the spread of infection, do not pick spots or small blood scabs which may appear a couple of days after treatment and depending on the skin, may take between 7–21 days to heal. Fine blood scabs are a normal post reaction response to the treatment, especially in the initial stages of having electrolysis. The fine blood scabs develop by the dry cauterized blood in the base of the follicle rising up through the follicle. Do not pick the area at all.

  • For clients who have long hair, to reduce the risk of infected follicles, keep hair tied back off the face.


Avoid: Touching the treated area and do not pick any scabs that may form

Avoid: Self tans or fake tans as these can cause irritation to the skin, also avoid perfumes, and perfumed body lotions

Avoid: Direct sunlight, or sun bed treatment. If you must go out in the sun, use a high protection factor sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to avoid hyper pigmentation, especially on yellow based, Black and Asian skin types. Re apply in the middle of the day. UVA and UVB can cause pigmentation marks to appear on the treated area and wearing our SPF 30 will help to reduce this quicker, developing an even skin tone faster.

Avoid: Saunas, solaria, sun beds, jacuzzis and steam treatments as these can also cause pigmentation to develop

Avoid: Hot baths, showers

Avoid: Swimming

Avoid: Applying make-up to the treated area.

Avoid: Applying soap or perfumed products to the treated area

Avoid: Activities for 48 hours that stimulate blood flow following treatment

Avoid: Wearing tight or restricted clothing over treated body areas

Avoid: For Blemish removal only / Avoid the possible friction on the treated areas such as wearing tight fitting glasses, squeezing spots, careless or erratic tweezing or blowing the nose too vigorously.


Use of Cleansing

  • When washing or cleansing use gentle un perfumed cream cleanser or facial wash, never use soap on the treated area as this will further dry the skin. Gently pat the area dry to avoid dislodging any fine scabs or crusts


  • If you would like to bleach the downy hair growth between treatments, do not apply bleach for at least 48 hours after electrolysis.


  • Do not pluck, tweeze, thread or remove hair with wax or depilatory cream remover between electrolysis treatments, as this will interrupt the hair growth cycle. It is safer to simply trim any noticeable unwanted hair with scissors

Treatment Plan

  • Follow your Electrologist’s recommendations for your treatment plan and aftercare


  • Use a high protection factor sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to avoid hyper pigmentation, especially on yellow based, Black and Asian skin types. Re apply in the middle of the day. UVA and UVB can cause pigment marks to appear on the treated area and wearing our SPF 30 will help to reduce this quicker, developing an even skin tone faster.


  • Tell your Electrologist about any unusual reactions immediately in order that she may modify your treatment accordingly

*  For most people, after-effects of the treatment normally clear within 48 hours. However, everyone is different, so please do not be alarmed if it takes a bit longer. If in doubt,
