Laser hair removal is one of the most common aesthetic treatments for men and women.
The benefits of laser hair removal are life-changing, and you want to ensure the best results possible! Your skin care after laser hair removal is paramount for the effectiveness of this treatment, and others like microneedling or laser treatments.
Skin care after laser hair removal
Do not pick these or mess with your skin after laser hair removal. Just like getting a tattoo or your eyebrows microbladed, leave your skin alone to do its thing as it heals. Picking can mess with your final results!
Do not use other forms of hair removal other than shaving
Tweezing or waxing can prevent you from achieving the best results possible from laser hair removal. Avoid all other hair removal methods other than shaving between your appointments.
Avoid sun exposure
Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun after any form of laser hair removal, so to help your results and avoid damage you should:
- Do not go into direct sunlight without SPF 50 sunscreen or higher for at least 4 weeks after your treatment.
- Wear physical sun protection over your treatment areas; think long sleeves, pants, etc.

Follow your treatment plan
Along with taking care of your skin after laser hair removal, it’s important to follow your treatment plan exactly. Hair grows in cycles, so we design each patient’s treatment plan to accommodate for this! If you miss an important window at 4 to 6 weeks between laser hair removal sessions, it can actually negate hair reduction progress.
