Laser Hair Removal After Care
Immediately after your treatment, there likely will be some slight redness, swelling around the hair follicles and mild discomfort or itchiness. You may use aloe gel to soothe the skin. You may also notice during and immediately after your session the smell of burned hairs. This is normal and will subside with cleansing. Loose fitting fitting clothing may be more comfortable for the first 24 hours after treatment.
Do not rub, or pick the treated area. Do not use any loofahs or abrasive scrubs for at least 3 days or until any redness and sensitivity subsides. Avoid strenuous sports activities or hot water/ saunas/ Jacuzzi for up to 24 hours after treatment to minimize irritation and prolonged redness.
If a crusting or blistering develops, contact our office. Itchy skin may be treated with a light layer of hydrocortisone cream. Continue to use broad-spectrum SPF 30, or higher, for the duration of your treatments.

After your treatment, the hair may appear to grow for up to the next few weeks. Shaving is recommended between sessions and is recommended the day prior to your next appointment to maximize efficacy. Your session typically is scheduled in 4 weeks for facial areas, 6 to 8 weeks for other areas of the body.
Adhering to this schedule is important to ensure success of the treatments. Electrolysis, waxing, threading, tweezing or sugaring is to be avoided between sessions. Shaving or trimming of hair may be resumed normally during the treatment.
