Are There Any Restrictions on Activities After Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is the most efficient and effective way of achieving long-lasting hair-free skin. There is no wonder why so many people across the globe opt for this innovative treatment as their method of removing body and facial hair. While laser hair removal is generally safe and tolerated well, being proactive in taking certain precautions and avoiding specific activities after the treatment can ensure optimal results while minimising the risk of complications. Here are some guidelines to follow after your treatment to help keep your skin healthy and hair-free:


Avoid Sun Exposure: Laser hair removal can leave your skin more sensitive to sunlight after the treatment. We advise avoiding direct skin exposure for at least 48 hours after the treatment. If avoiding sun exposure is not possible, be sure to lather the skin with a high-SPF sunscreen to protect the skin efficiently.


Skip Hot Baths and Showers: The heat can increase blood flow to the surface of the skin which can sometimes irritate. We recommend avoiding very hot baths, showers, saunas, and steam rooms for at least 24-48 hours following the treatment. Try opting for lukewarm baths and showers instead and be extra gentle with cleaning the skin. 


Avoid Exfoliation: Exfoliating too soon after the appointment can irritate the skin, leading to a red and inflamed appearance. Try exfoliating before the treatment and avoid doing so again for at least 48 hours after laser hair removal.
