DEPILSTOP DO'S AND DONT'S

FOLLOW OUR UNIQUE ITALIAN DESIGNED DEPILSTOP PROTOCOL PROGRAMME FOR OPTIMAL EFFECTIVENESS OF YOUR TREATMENTS, IN STORE, AND AT HOME !
DO'S LIST

Do:

Ensure that you maintain the strict interval (2/3/4 weeks) between treatments, as advised by the therapist. This ensure that follicles are treated at the correct Anagen stage of the hair growth cycle. Not honouring the prescribed time frames, will delay progress and the results you endeavour. Should regrowth appear, it is due to the full protocol not being adhered to.

Do:

Use your Depilstop Action 3(available in store) cream twice, daily to minimize/eliminate effects of redness, bumps, crusting and/or scabbing. It is designed specifically to work in synergy with our technologies. It contains iso-flavones of soya which assist in retarding the hair growth, and moisturizes the skin and prepares it to receive optimal laser/light beam pulsating.

Do:

Gently exfoliate the area with Depilstop Gommage or Depilstop Scrub or Depilstop Exfoliating glove (available in store) designed to increase cell turnover and better product penetration. It contains very fine micro-granules of almond shells, which allow you to remove the impurities and dead cells from the most superficial layer of the skin. This gives a more even tone, glowing, and smooth complexion.

Do:

Apply SPF daily, preferably 25 or higher (available in store).

Do:

Do be advised that hairs will begin to shed between treatments in patches. The number of treatments required varies between clients dependant on the thickness, density, hair strength, skin and hair follicle conditions, and individual characteristics. Therapists conduct an analysis at critical stages of treatments and can provide a better indication as your treatments progress and follicles react.

Do:

Do wear Loose fitting clothing and soft fabrics which will increase comfort for you after treatment. Immediately after your treatment, redness & bumps at the treatment area are common; these may last up to 2 hours or longer. It is normal for the treated area to feel like a sunburn for a few hours. You should use a cold compress if the sensitivity continues. If there is any crusting, apply an antibiotic cream.

Do:

Do be advised that both our Laser technologies have a propensity to pigment, and because of this phototype IV- VI may experience hyper/hypo-pigmentation and or temporary discomfort on the areas of treatment. Depilstop Product protocol are firmly advised for affected areas.

Do:

Do be advised that changes in medication, supplements (eg Collagen, biotin, vitamins A-E, iron, zinc, excessive protein), hormones and altered health situations could potentially affect and renew hair growth. Should this be the case, clients may be required to conduct a few maintenance sessions to treat affected follicles accordingly.

Do:

Do advise us if you are currently on any of the following medications/treatments as they contain ingredients which increase photosensitivity: Hydroquinone (medical grade), Glutathione, Retin A, Oral contraceptives, Cholesterol lowering drugs, -Antibiotics: ciprofloxacin, doxycycline, levofloxacin, ofloxacin, tetracycline, trimethoprim, Antifungals, Antihistamines, Diuretics, tranquilizers, Alpha hydroxyl acids, Retinol, Beta-carotene, Kojic Acid, Ascorbic Acid/Vitamin C, Chemotherapy, pigmentation disorders

Do:

Do be advised that for younger clients, experts recommend that teens have finished puberty, be hormonally stable, have a recognised adult pattern of hair growth, and have no underlying health conditions eg PCOS. The reason for this is that there is still a lot of hormonal fluctuations, thus stimulating hair growth unfortunately at the same time. It will require multiple treatments to obtain desired results as there are different stages of hair growth cycles. This could also be the same for more mature clients, or others with hormone imbalances.
