We have collected the most important information to help you prepare for your laser hair removal session.
Aftercare is just as important as pre-care, especially for ensuring the health of your skin. This is how you can be kind to your skin after laser hair removal, to avoid sensitivity and irritation.
After your laser hair removal treatment, it’s normal for the skin to be a little red or raw. Thankfully, you can keep it smoothed with gentle, fragrance-free lotions or aloe vera gel. In extreme cases, you use anti-inflammatory creams or medication, but it’s rarely necessary. For the first 24 hours after your treatment, avoid sweating, intense exercise, or deodorant use. Then, for 24-72 hours after your treatment, avoid jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms, or hot showers. For 4-10 days after your treatment, avoid direct sun exposure, shaving, exfoliating, or any harsh treatments that might irritate the area you just had lasered.
Laser hair removal works best when you get it done every 4-6 weeks. If you do experience some bumps or ingrown hairs, you can do a gentle exfoliation 10 days after your laser hair removal treatment. Harsh peels and aggressive scrubs are off-limits and be careful not to overwhelm or irritate your skin when you exfoliate.
Usually, it takes a minimum of 6 appointments to achieve the desired level of hair reduction. For the span of at least 5 months, you’ll need to follow our pre-care advice closely. That means no tanning, no waxing, no tweezing, and no extreme skin-renewing medications.
Laser hair removal is amazing, but it’s also a complex procedure, and there’s a lot to keep in mind. The good news is that you don’t have to figure all of this out on your own! If you have any questions about what to do before and after laser hair removal, feel free to ask us.
We’ll also have you fill out a consent form prior to your appointment. It covers all of these finicky laser hair removal before and after details, to guarantee that you’re ready for your first appointment.
