What Can and Can't You Do After Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

After a laser hair removal treatment, it is normal to experience some redness and bumps. These bumps are caused by the dead hairs that will start to shed 5 to 30 days after the procedure. To speed up the process, you can exfoliate the area. You may also feel some discomfort, so it is recommended to apply ice to the treated area.

If you have a skin reaction, your doctor may apply a steroid cream to the affected area. Showering after laser hair removal is safe as long as you take proper care of your skin. Avoid using soaps with chemicals or perfumes, and exfoliating too much. It is also important to stay away from sunlight and tanning beds for at least six weeks after the treatment. Laser hair removal is most effective for people with fair skin and dark hair, but it can be used on all skin types. Rare side effects of laser hair removal include greying of treated hair or excessive hair growth around treated areas, especially on darker skin.

It is common to experience itchy skin after the procedure, as the skin is irritated. Several treatments are needed for initial hair removal and maintenance treatments may also be necessary. If you choose to use a home laser hair removal device, make sure to follow the instructions carefully in order to reduce the risk of injury. Avoid hot water, the sun and heat for several days after the treatment as they can burn and irritate your skin. As an expert in laser hair removal, I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone who wants to get rid of unwanted body hair at an affordable price. Taking proper care of your skin before and after the procedure will ensure the smoothest results.
