How To Care For Your Skin After A Laser Hair Reduction
With cutting edge technology available in the market, grooming methods have taken on a whole new level. From the painful & messy hair removal methods like waxing and threading or the time-consuming methods like shaving, we have moved to a revolutionary new innovation, that is, Laser Hair Reduction. Laser Hair Reduction is a method to permanently remove unwanted hair from your body. Unlike temporary hair removal methods, this method is painless, permanent and very cost-effective in the long run.
But the process of reducing hair through laser isn’t a quick one. These treatments take multiple sessions for the hair growth to completely stop. This would also include certain steps that one should take care of after each session. Some of the aftercare tips would be:
1. Avoid Hot Showers/Saunas
The laser treatment works on the principle of using heat to destroy hair follicles. So applying extra heat would lead to irritation of the treated area. Therefore, avoid taking hot showers or saunas while you are still being treated.
2. Avoid Strenuous Exercises
Similarly, raising the body temperature can also work against your favour. So for the next 48 hours, post each session, it is advised not to indulge in any strenuous activities.
3. Avoid Makeup And Harsh Skin Products
Right after the procedure, your skin is still vulnerable. Using harsh chemicals on your skin, especially the face, can irritate the treated area. Wait for a minimum of 24 hours before using any makeup post each session.
4. Avoid The Sun For A Week After Each Session
The sun and it’s harmful UVA and UVB rays may irritate the treated area. So it is advised, to avoid the sun for at least a week after each session. And if you are going out, then it is important that you cover up with clothes, and if the treatment has been done on your face then you should wear a cap or a scarf that would keep the sun away. Another way to do this would be to apply sunscreen, with a minimum of SPF 30, generously over the treated area.
