How To Take Care Of Your Skin After Laser Body Hair Reduction Treatment?

Body hair is not in fashion and to be honest, it never was.

People never really paid any attention to it until recently when it was proved that body hair traps moisture that ultimately leads to skin infections.

There are several ways people get rid of their body hair these days and the most preferred one is effective laser hair removal treatment.

In this context, it is best to remember that there are certain post-treatment skincare rules that one has to follow to enjoy the desired results.

What are those rules?

Well, they are as follows –

Stay Away From The Sun

It is no news that the UV radiation present in sunlight can harm your skin.

The situation can get worse if skin subjected to laser hair removal treatment is exposed to the sun’s rays as it will cause burning sensation, skin irritations, etc.

If you absolutely have to head out then cover all laser-treated areas of your skin under at least two layers of clothes. Always make sure that you have covered the laser-treated areas of your skin with at least three layers of the strongest sunscreen.

Also, avoid taking a trip to the beach for at least three days after your skin has been subjected to laser body hair removal treatment.

You would also need to avoid fake tan parlors and refrain from applying fake tan products to your skin.

Avoid Applying Cosmetic Products On The Treated Areas Of Your Skin

Cosmetic products contain a lot of harsh chemicals as active ingredients.

Hence, it is strongly advised that you refrain from subjecting the laser-treated portions of your skin to any form of cosmetic product.

You would need to follow this rule for a day after your skin has been subjected to laser body hair reduction treatment.

Take Cold Showers For Some Time

Hot showers are relaxing, granted but they are best for skin that has not been subjected to high-intensity laser beams.

This is the reason why, after getting effective laser hair removal treatment, you would need to take cold showers, for at least two days from the date of treatment.

In this way, you will be shielding your skin from burning sensations, irritation, and blisters.

Your skin needs time to heal and avoiding hot showers is the best way to accelerate the healing process.

You would also need to stay away from saunas, Jacuzzis, and strenuous activities that may cause your skin to produce heat and sweat.

Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothes as friction from your clothes can harm your skin.

Do Not Forget To Exfoliate The Treated Areas

After laser body hair reduction treatment, you would witness that the treated areas are shedding a lot of dead body hair strands.

This is a normal occurrence and to accelerate the process all the while ensuring that your skin heals quickly, you would need to make sure that you are exfoliating the treated areas with a soft cotton towel and a mild body wash while taking a shower.

You would need to continue the exfoliation process for four weeks from the date you got the treatment.

Be gentle with the exfoliation process. Failure to do so will leave you with irritated skin.


In case you are having issues understanding any of the tips mentioned above, kindly consult with the dermatologist at the skin clinic from where you got the treatment, for the best results.
