After the procedure
You might notice redness and swelling for the first few hours after laser hair removal. To reduce any discomfort, apply ice to the treated area.
After the laser hair removal, avoid sun exposure—both natural sunlight and tanning beds. When your skin has healed, use sunscreen whenever you’re in the sun. You might also prepare yourself for possible hair shedding in the first few weeks after treatment. Don’t mistake this for hair regrowth.
Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth, it doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. It typically takes several laser hair removal treatments to provide an extended hair-free period. Periodic maintenance treatments might be needed as well.
