The way to look beautiful and attractive is through well-groomed skin. It is very important to take care of your skin after laser epilation, which is a permanent way to get rid of unwanted hair. It is a known fact that the success rate of the procedure increases when the skin is given the necessary attention between laser epilation sessions. How should the care after laser epilation be in order to maintain the success of laser epilation and not to compromise on a beautiful and well-groomed skin?
What to do for your skin after laser hair removal
It is quite normal to have slight redness on your skin after laser epilation and it is completely temporary. Redness that lasts for a few hours on some skins may continue for 1-2 days on some skins. You can soothe the area with ice to relieve these redness and skin sensitivity caused by the procedure, which can cause itching.
One of the most important things you should do for your skin during laser epilation is to stay away from the sun. Exposing the area to the sun without any protection after the session can cause irritation and the next session to be inefficient or even burns. To prevent such situations, you should use high-factor sunscreens after the laser hair removal procedure and at your session intervals.
You should avoid methods that remove hair from the root (such as tweezers, waxing, rope) before starting laser epilation and between your sessions.
Using hot water while showering immediately after laser hair removal procedures can irritate your skin. Taking a shower with warm or cold water at least 8 hours after the procedure is not only relaxing but also prevents damage to your skin.
Aggressive and chemical skin treatments should be avoided between laser epilation sessions. In addition, procedures such as baths, saunas, peeling and scrubs should be performed at least 4 days after the laser hair removal procedure as they will irritate the skin.
It is very important to keep the area where laser epilation is applied moist
Keeping the application area moist after laser epilation is as important as keeping it away from the sun. In dry skin, the hair loss period after the session is longer and the risk of irritation increases. Therefore, after your sessions, you should use the moisturizing creams recommended by your specialist in the recommended way and intensity without interruption. In addition, taking care not to use white soaps that cause skin dryness will help protect the moisture you provide to your skin.
