Laser Hair Removal

Prior to your Laser Hair Removal treatment, it is important to avoid any sun exposure, including tanning beds at least 2 weeks before your first appointment and throughout your full laser treatment process, this means the entire 4-8 months you are having treatment. It is important for your skin to be its natural color without any sun exposure.

Avoid any artificial tanning such as lotions, sprays, and booths for at least 7 days leading up to your appointment.

Shave 1-2 days before your appointment so that there is visible pigment above the skin. If you have spots such as your back that you can’t reach then we will assist in trimming your hair before you’re lasered. Please shave all reachable areas to avoid additional charges.

Do not apply heavy lotions or perfumes on your skin prior to your appointment.

Remember, we cannot laser any part of your body that is covered with a tattoo.

We do not laser pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Following your Laser Hair Removal treatment, it is normal to have red, irritation or feel like you have a mild sunburn for a few hours. If necessary you can apply an ice pack, aloe vera gel, sunburn cream or antibiotic ointment.

It is important to keep all treated areas moisturized after treatment and wear sunscreen immediately following your treatment if you’re going to be in the sun. Any moisturizer without alpha-hydroxy acids will work.

After a couple of hours, as long as there is no epidermal blistering or worsening irritation then it is okay to apply makeup on top of treated areas. It is important to wear a moisturizer under your make up and always wear sunscreen when exposing your treated skin to the sun.

Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of dark or light spots for 2 months. Use sunscreen SPF25 or higher at all times throughout the treatment and for 1-2 months following.

Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin. DO NOT USE any other hair removal methods or products on the treated area during the course of your laser treatments (shaving is OK and encouraged between treatments), as it will prevent you from achieving your best results.

You may shower after your laser treatment and use soap, avoid exfoliating or applying deodorant for 12-24 hours depending on irritation following treatment. Your skin should be patted dry and NOT rubbed for as long as irritation persists.

It is NOT recommended to use any sort of prescription or over the counter numbing cream on any area being treated. The use of numbing cream even if wiped off completely prior to your treatment, can cause an intense thermal reaction that can result in hives and blisters.

All Natural Teeth Whitening FAQs

What do I do following my whitening treatment?

Following your whitening treatments, you should avoid tomato sauce and red meat. Do not smoke for a minimum of 12 hours. If your teeth are sore after your treatment, it is important to stay away from any dark colored food and drinks for 12 hours; this includes but is not limited to coffee, red wine, spinach, and beets. This means your pores are open, so drink a lot of water to help hydrate your teeth and close your pores.

How white will my teeth get?

After undergoing whitening with the DaVinci Teeth Whitening System, teeth shades will brighten up to 14 shades, with an average improvement of five to eight shades with each 20-minute session. Individual results will depend on your current tooth shade, treatment time, and the composition of your teeth. Your end result will be a whiter, healthier smile. Everyone's teeth are different and will have a natural stop point. We recommend a 60-minute session for optimal results and to remove all layers of staining.

How long will the whitening last?

This varies from person to person and depends on your diet and lifestyle. However, with proper maintenance and periodic touch-up treatments, you can keep your smile looking great for a lifetime.

Is DaVinci Teeth Whitening safe?

Yes, the DaVinci whitening gel formulation is an organic plant and mineral based product with built-in enamel building qualities. Scientific research has shown that the active ingredients in the

DaVinci Teeth Whitening Gels are safe and effective. Our whitening equipment is FDA approved and has been used throughout the dental and cosmetic community for years. DaVinci Teeth Whitening does not change or damage the structure of the teeth; it merely lifts and removes the stains, making your teeth whiter.

How long does the treatment take?

Treatment time is 60 minutes. If desensitizer is used treatment time is increased by 10 minutes. You will be in and out of our office in less than 2 hours (approximately 90 minutes without desensitizing gel).

What is the difference?

The DaVinci teeth whitening system uses the latest LED cold laser technology and our signature whitening gel consisting of natural plant and mineral ingredients. Our system has proven to yield superior results with little to no sensitivity when compared to other whitening systems.

Does it hurt?

No, because our signature laser gel is all natural the treatment does not hurt and most clients experience no sensitivity. A very small percentage of clients may feel some tooth sensitivity, especially if they are dehydrated or consume very cold/hot foods or drinks within two hours after the whitening session. Any sensitivity is short term and gone within 24-48 hours. We do offer solutions for those that are concerned about sensitivity.

Will DaVinci Teeth Whitening work on crowns and fillings?

Yes, DaVinci teeth whitening will remove staining from existing dental work and take it back to the original color. Our goal is to clean up the existing dental work and whiten the natural teeth to match for a nice even smile. We cannot whiten them beyond the original color of the material used at the time of placement. If your existing dental work is not in your smile line it won’t matter either way because it is not visible.

Should I consider DaVinci Teeth Whitening?

Studies have shown that people with whiter teeth look younger and there is a correlation between high self-esteem and a bright, confident smile. DaVinci Teeth Whitening is a great way to instantly enhance your appearance.  

Is DaVinci Teeth Whitening treatment for everyone?

The DaVinci Teeth Whitening treatment provides dramatic results for anyone who wants to whiten their teeth. This includes people with teeth that have been stained by smoking or by substances such as coffee, tea, soda, wine, and other consumable items. We also see great results on people with teeth stained by tetracycline, fluoride, and hereditary discoloration. DaVinci even works on crowns (all implants and crowns start to collect plaque and discolor over time, our system will whiten to the original color of the crown and/or implant).

Organic Airbrush Tanning

Studies have shown that people with whiter teeth look younger and there is a correlation between high self-esteem and a bright, confident smile. DaVinci Teeth Whitening is a great way to instantly enhance your appearance.

Prior to your appointment, it is very important to prep your skin. For maximum results shower, exfoliate and avoid applying any lotions, perfume, or makeup to your skin. If you have plans after your spray tan appointment I suggest applying deodorant before you come. DO NOT apply lotion all over your body.

Shave prior to your appointment and avoid any waxing treatments at least 24 hours before and 72 hours after an airbrush tan.

Wear loose clothes to your airbrush appointment and avoid wearing anything but dark clothes immediately following and up to 12 hours post airbrush tan application.

Following your appointment, you need to wait at least 8 hours before showering or getting your skin wet in any way. (Unless, of course, you upgrade to our Shower in 1 Hour Solution). This includes participating in physical activities like going to the gym or walking around outside in the heat.

After your shower, you will want to avoid applying any products to your skin that contain alcohol or mineral oil for as long as 7 days. These ingredients are not only toxic to your body but break down key ingredients in our airbrush solutions that help guarantee you the most beneficial and longest lasting airbrush experience.

Every airbrush client should be using an organic tan extender on a regular basis. At Timeless Laser we have multiple options of extenders such as lotions and body washes to choose from.

A tan extender is going to prolong the fading process of your tan and prevent uneven fading when a client tans once a week or more.
