After Care – Laser Hair Removal
1.) Immediately after the treatments, there may be redness and bumps at the treatment area, which may last up to 2 or more hours. Use a cold compress if necessary. If there is any crusting, apply antibiotic cream. The use of aloe vera gel or sunburn cream can also be used to sooth the treated area.
2.) It is important that you keep the treatment area moisturized, any moisturizer without alpha-hydroxy acids will work.
3.) Avoid direct sun exposure to reduce chance of dark or light spots for 2 months. Use sunscreen SPF 25 or higher at all times throughout the treatment.
4.) You may shower after the laser treatment, and use soap, deodorant, etc. The treated area may be washed gently with a mild soap. Skin should be patted dry and NOT rubbed. Underarm areas, that have been treated, should be wiped with alcohol for 24 hours.
