Laser Hair Removal: Tips For Aftercare

Laser Hair Removal ( Hair is a natural part of our bodies and helps regulate things like heat, sense of touch, and more. However, sometimes hair grows in places we absolutely can’t stand, and it always seems to be the most noticeable in places we don’t want it. So what can you do? Well, you could shave every day, but shaving supplies will eat at your wallet over time, and actually, shaving will eat into your time even more. 

So that’s why many people are choosing laser hair removal to permanently get rid of unwanted hair. However, this is a laser treatment we are talking about here. While it’s nowhere near as invasive as surgery, some aftercare is still needed. So let’s get right into some key tips for a successful laser hair removal recovery.

Tips For Aftercare

Wear Loose Clothes

After treatment is completed, your skin will probably be red and irritated. It’s best to be mindful of ways to keep your skin from being irritated further with things like tight clothing that can rub against your skin. So when you’re headed to your appointment, it’s best to wear loose-fitting clothes that are made of a soft material.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

It’s best to avoid direct sunlight on treated areas for a while as the site heals. This is because the treated skin is much more sensitive to UV damage while healing. So plan to do things inside, in the shade, or wear loose clothing over the treated skin.

Avoid Hot Water

Cold and lukewarm water is totally fine to use on your skin after laser hair removal, but hot water could irritate your skin. So it’s best to take showers on low heat instead of your normal steamy ones. Also, avoid things like Jacuzzis or hot tubs.
