Maintain the Right Skin Care Before, Between, and After Laser Hair Removal Treatments

Pre- and post-treatment skin care is one of the biggest success factors for laser hair removal.

When preparing for laser hair removal, make sure your skin is shaved and clean. Between treatments, be sure to avoid sun contact, as tanned skin increases the risk of burning. And after laser hair removal, moisturize well and regularly.

If you do find that you became burned after a laser session, be sure to apply a gentle soothing ointment such as Vitamin E oil, aloe vera, or coconut oil.
