Laser Hair Removal Aftercare guide

Immediate Aftercare

  • You may experience small red bumps around the hair follicle. This is normal. Do not pick, rub or scratch these until they have cleared. Your skin overall may be sensitive for several days following your laser hair removal treatment.

    If your skin scabs/crusts or you experience a burn, do not pick, rub or scratch these areas. Doing so can result in infection, permanent pigment changes in your skin or even scarring. Please contact us immediately if you experience any burns.

    Do not sunbathe or use a tanning bed for at least 2 weeks following your treatment. If you need to be out in the sun, wear an SPF 30 or higher.

    Avoid swimming, hot tubs, and saunas for 24-48 hours after treatment.

    It may take several weeks for the hair in the treated area to “fall out” (push up and out of the follicle).

    Laser hair removal is a process. It is normal to see hair grow back completely or in patches after each treatment. Following your recommended treatment plan will improve your chances of a great overall result.

    Although rare, infection in the treated area is possible. Signs of infection may include redness, tenderness, inflammation, or drainage to the treatment area. Should you develop an infection or have concerns about infection, please contact us immediately.
