If you’re considering laser hair removal treatment in London, you may be curious about what happens to your skin after the procedure. Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic treatment that uses laser energy to target hair follicles. But it can also affect the surrounding skin. After thousands of treatments I can explain exactly what happens to your skin after laser hair removal treatment.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective medical treatment that uses laser energy to target hair follicles. The heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, preventing future hair growth. Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that is suitable for any part of the body, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and bikini area.
What happens to your skin after laser hair removal treatment?
After laser hair removal treatment, it’s normal to experience some redness and swelling in the treated area. This is a typical response to laser, and it often goes away in a few hours to a few days.
You may also notice some itching or discomfort in the treated area, which can be relieved with cold compress and aloe vera.
In rare cases, you may experience mild blistering or crusting of the skin after laser hair removal treatment. This is more common in people with sensitive skin or those who have had a higher intensity treatment. It’s important to avoid picking or scratching the affected area, as this can lead to scarring or infection.
How to care for your skin after laser hair removal treatment?
Proper laser hair removal aftercare is essential for minimising any side effects and ensuring optimal results. This includes avoiding direct sunlight and tanning beds for at least 14 days after your treatment, as well as wearing protective clothing and sunscreen.
You should also avoid hot baths or showers, saunas, and strenuous exercise for 48 hours after the treatment.
It’s also recommended to keep the treated area clean and dry, avoiding any harsh soaps or scrubs that can irritate the skin.
