Are you struggling with unwanted hair and looking for the best way to get rid of it? Laser hair removal is extremely effective and offers truly amazing results if performed right. This treatment targets the pigment inside the hair and ‘destroys’ it, redesigning the very cells of your skin so that they stop natural hair growth. As a result, you get soft, smooth, and hair-free skin that can last for many months.
There are quite a few anti-laser treatment articles online. They claim that the treatment is dangerous, but no medical research can back up these accusations. If the procedure is performed by a certified professional using high-quality equipment, the treatment is completely safe.
The only risks you may face in this case come from incorrect post-treatment care. The following tips will teach you how to avoid common mistakes that can hurt your over-sensitized skin after laser hair removal.
- Do not leave home without applying sunscreen.
Wearing sunscreen at all times is a must if you want to keep your skin young-looking and free of blemishes, as UV radiation is the beauty enemy #1. This becomes even more important after you get any kind of laser treatment because the procedure irritates the outer layer of your skin. Without protection, the damage from UV rays can result in blisters and scarring.
- Apply an ice-pack to the treated skin.
The irritation and redness can last for a couple of days after the treatment. Using cooling creams isn’t the best idea in this case as they might make the irritation worse. An ice-pack is the perfect solution that will provide you with some much-needed relief.
- Do not wear any makeup for at least a day after the treatment.
These products can clog your pores and make the over-sensitized skin inflamed. If you absolutely must apply some makeup, use only high-quality mineral products and wash them away as soon as possible.
- Do not take a hot shower, bath, or any other heat treatment for two days.
This will increase irritation and interfere with the recovery process. Spraying hot water on the treated area will definitely be painful.
- Avoid using topical skincare products for a few days.
This is essential if you have your facial hair removed. Anti-acne and anti-aging products, in particular, should be avoided as their active ingredients may damage your tender skin, which can lead to the appearance of pigmentation or even breakouts.
