Hair Removal Laser Treatment After Care

Imagine never having to worry about shaving or waxing your legs, armpits, or any other body area ever again. Laser hair removal allows you to say goodbye to those pesky hairs and hello to silky smooth skin. We’ve discussed in previous articles the importance of properly preparing for hair removal laser treatment. We are now exploring some aftercare tips. Following the instructions of your laser hair removal technician will help maximize the effectiveness of the treatment and ensure a smooth recovery. Let’s take a look at another aftercare tip your hair removal laser treatment specialist will likely recommend.

Avoid Heat

Avoid sun exposure and excessive heat for a few days after laser hair removal. It’s also important to avoid hot showers, saunas, and strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours. Avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight and be sure to wear sunscreen (at least SPF 50) if you need to go outside. It’s normal for some hair to shed in the days after treatment, so don’t be alarmed if you see this happening. Avoid picking at the skin or exfoliating the treated area to prevent irritation.
