What should you avoid after laser? A very valid question and one that definitely deserves some thought if you’re serious about getting laser hair removal. While laser hair removal is generally considered safe and effective, it’s important to follow proper aftercare. So you can ensure you get the best result while reducing the risk of skin irritation or other possible side effects.
What should you avoid after laser?
- Sun exposure: Avoid exposing the treated area to the sun for at least 14 days post laser hair removal. This includes the use of sun beds. Sun exposure can increase the risk of skin irritation and make it more difficult for the skin to heal. If you need to go outside, it is recommended to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. And to wear protective clothing to cover the treated area.
- Hot showers and saunas: Avoid hot showers, steam rooms, saunas, and other activities that can cause excessive sweating for at least 48 hours after a laser hair removal session. During this time, it is important to let the skin cool down and for any redness or swelling to subside.
- Products with harsh ingredient: Avoid using harsh soaps, hot water, or scrubbing the treated area too vigorously. Gentle washing with cool water and a gentle, fragrance-free soap can help to soothe the skin and remove any remaining debris.
- Picking or scratching: Avoid picking or scratching the treated area. As this can increase the risk of infection and slow down the healing process. If you experience itching or discomfort, you can to apply a cool, damp cloth or aloe vera gel to the area.
