What do I do After Laser Hair Removal Treatments are done, post session?


After Laser Hair Removal you should keep the area treated during your laser hair removal treatments away from any sun exposure, and use SPF 30+ sunscreen for at least 7 days after your treatment to allow your skin to heal and recover. Also minimize any bathing or washing with hot water, use warm water until your skins feeling of sunburn has disappeared.

Most of the hairs that have been exposed to the IPL or Laser Hair Removal will appear within 1 week of treatment. This means they have detached from the root and are being expelled. Once you have noticed this you can then gently exfoliate the hairs with a soft wet towel or non invasive exfoliating gloves. Please ensure you only do this once your skins redness has calmed down as this is a natural reaction and generally lasts only about 4 days to 1 week.

If you have any irritation after your treatment this usually lasts for 24 hours. Please also be aware that no two skins are alike and reactions may vary from person to person.
