What To Do After Laser Hair Removal

After a session of laser hair removal (particularly on sensitive areas) it is normal to feel a sensation of warmth in the area, slightly similar to that of a very mild sunburn. The skin may also appear red in color and the area around the follicle itself may become raised, these normal side effects usually disappear 24-48hrs after each session.  You will notice that these side effects are more obvious after the first few sessions when hair in the area is thick and coarse. You will notice that your hair will begin to thin which will cause these side effects to become less noticeable after each session of laser.

What to do 24-48 hrs DIRECTLY AFTER your session

Avoid applying deodorant to underarm area

Wear loose cotton clothing

Avoid touching the skin in the treatment area

Apply Aloe Vera to your treatment area

Avoid physical exercise, steam rooms, saunas, Jacuzzis, and swimming pools

When showering/bathing keep water cool to lukewarm

Apply mineral makeup only after all facial laser hair removal treatments

Apply SPF 50+ to all treatment areas that are exposed to UV light, cover areas where possible

What to do IN BETWEEN your sessions

Exfoliate the skin in the treatment area 4-5 days after treatment. Dead or dry skin can sometimes cause slight redness after treatment so keeping your skin in tip top condition when having laser will get the best results.

When hair begins to regrow in between sessions, shaving and using hair removal creams are the only forms of hair removal that are allowed during your course of treatments.

Avoid tweezing, threading, and waxing, as these forms of hair removal remove the hair follicle.

Avoid exposing your treatment area to sun or sunbeds throughout your course of treatment

Apply SPF 50+ sunscreen at all times if your treatment areas are exposed to UV light

Stop applying fake tan to your treatment areas 7 days before your next session

Inform us if you begin taking any medications throughout your course of laser treatments. They may cause adverse effects.


Return for your next session within the time frame recommended by our laser tech.

What to do after your laser session is just as important as the preparation before. It is vital that you follow all after care advice as this will prevent adverse reactions from your laser hair removal treatments.
