Answer: Yes! The Depilar System uses the same principals as other enzyme-based hair removal products. The Depilar System is more efficacious and you will see better results.
Answer: Yes! The Depilar System will work if you have not had success with laser treatments. You must discontinue laser treatments and continue with regular and successive Depilar Applications.
Answer: Yes. It is recommended that you not shower or bathe 2 hours prior to a Depilar Session. Also, no oils or talcs should be used in conjunction with the hair removal procedure as these may clog pores or change the pH of the skin.
Answer: You may use any type of wax or sugaring product for the hair removal procedure.
Answer: No. Simply exfoliate or dry brush the skin prior to application.
Answer: Regular and successive sessions are required every 4-6 weeks depending on hair growth cycles over a
12-24 month period. The hair must be ¼ inch in length to be properly removed by the root.
See chart on “The hair growth cycle” page.
Answer: The Depilar System only works on hair that is visible and in the anagen or growth phase. Each hair growth cycle must be targeted separately and, depending on the specific area, 4-5 sessions may be required before a visible result.
Answer: Often a temporary increase in hair growth occurs following the first session as the body is reacting to the hair removal process. Removing hair by the root can reset the anagen phase for hair producing cells. Dormant hair producing cells are activated and will allow for increased efficacy for subsequent sessions and even more visible results.
Answer: Yes. Do not shower or bathe for 45 minutes after application. It is also advised to perform an exfoliation or dry brushing of the targeted area 4-5 days post-application.
Answer: After any waxing or sugaring, sun exposure should be avoided for 24 hours, giving the skin a chance to recuperate. And as always, be sure to wear sunscreen, avoid the sun at noon and don’t stay in the sun too long!
