Folks who battled with unwanted hair and opted for laser hair removal — congratulations! You will find your permanent solution to your problem areas quite amenable, but caring for those areas freshly treated by laser hair removal may require a few extra tools in your skin care toolkit.
After any laser treatment, vitamin E lotion and aloe should be applied to the skin (these are both applied in office, post-treatment at Laser Smooth). This simple step ensures your skin is soothed and supple after the hair removal process. Redness is a common consequence and typically skin will return to its normal tone before the end of your treatment day. Treating the skin with aloe and vitamin E lotion can help expedite your skin’s return to its natural tone.
Post-laser hair removal, it’s important to keep your skin well protected from the sun, an SPF lotion will help keep your newly smooth areas from becoming affected by sun exposure. However, prolonged sun exposure to your treated areas, regardless of SPF, should be kept to a minimum until a few days after your final laser hair removal treatment.
Post-care calming creams can be a great way to soothe more sensitive skin after laser hair removal treatments. Look for a cream with the aforementioned aloe and/or vitamin E to make sure to both calm and nourish your skin.
