I have shared the laser hair removal experience in a previous post, “How Painful Is Laser Hair Removal,” but what is the aftermath like?

What You Should Expect After Laser Hair Removal

Immediately After Treatment

  • Mild redness
  • Mild bumps
  • Itchiness on area treated
  • Avoid makeup, lotion, moisturizer, and deodorant for at least 24 hours
  • Avoid sun exposure
  • Do not shave for at least 24 hours before or after the treatment
  • Do not shower 6-8 hours after treatment

Within the Month

  • Hairs will begin to shed between 5 and 30 days after your treatment
  • Avoid the tanning bed
  • Do not pick, scratch, wax, thread, tweeze the area

Follow up

  • At least 6 treatments will be neededto complete the process
  • Take note hair is growing and notify your technician so they can focus in on that area for touchups
