We are continuing our series on what to expect and recommendations of some things to do after you’ve had a hair removal laser treatment session. Our previous articles covered the fact that the area treated may feel like a sunburn for a day or so, the importance of avoiding hot water and saunas, making a plan to take it easy, and avoiding skin irritants after laser hair removal. Today, will look at two more recommendations to consider.
Use SPF 50 Sunscreen
You should apply sunscreen to the treated area every day until you conclude all of your laser hair removal treatments. If you plan to go outside, be sure to use at least an SPF 50 sunscreen with UVA/UVB. In fact, this is a good practice all the time, regardless of whether or not you’ve had hair removal laser treatment.
Avoid Waxing, Plucking, Electrolysis, or Depilatories
While it may be tempting, you need to completely avoid waxing, plucking, electrolysis, and depilatories before, after, and between laser hair removal sessions. If you need to, you can gently shave the area as needed after the redness and swelling subsides. Once you have completed your laser hair removal treatments, hair removal will be permanent.
Our next article will explore more post laser hair removal recommendations.
