Remember, your skin has now been treated with lasers, which makes it extra sensitive to sunlight. You’ll want to increase your use of sunscreen after a laser hair reduction treatment, and you’ll want to continue this increase for the duration of time you’re getting such treatments. It’s recommended to use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 35 and to put it on every single day (yes, even on cloudy days!). Just because you can’t see the sun’s rays, doesn’t mean it isn’t reaching and penetrating your skin!
Your skin is now going to be more sensitive to things that it may normally wouldn’t be. Doctors recommend avoiding chemical hair removal methods or any product that may touch the area that has been treated by laser. Try avoiding products with harsh chemicals or sulfates in them that may irritate your skin.
Cold showers are ideal after laser hair reduction treatment as the cold water is often soothing to the skin. It’s recommended to take cold showers for the first few days after treatment as your skin is most sensitive at this time. Cold showers also reduce any inflammation, which results in smoother, happier, and healthier skin!
Protecting your skin after laser hair reduction treatment is a great way to achieve long-lasting, healthy smooth skin. Protecting your skin is crucial after the procedure but as long as you follow your doctor’s instructions, you’ll be set!
