skin care for laser treatments
Pre-treatment care tips
For 30 days prior to a laser hair removal procedure you should avoid the use of sun-beds, self tanning creams or spray tan and don't wax or pluck hair from the treatment areas.
Immediately after a treatment it is normal for the area to feel slightly warm or tender, just as with a mild sunburn, with local swelling or redness.
The use of Aloe Vera gel is recommended directly after treatment and for a few days if necessary.
Post treatment care tips
After any clinical laser or microdermabrasion procedure it is important that you follow the following simple post-treatment guidelines during the first 48 hours;
- Avoid saunas and very hot baths or showers
- Do not use perfumed products on the treated areas
- Do not touch, pick or scratch the treated areas
- Avoid excessive exercise and perspiration
For the next 30 days you should avoid sunbeds or excessive exposure to strong sunlight, and apply a sun protection factor of 30+ when outside.
