How to Care For Your Skin After Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal in boston ma | Dr. PetropoulosNobody wants to have a body full of unwanted hair— especially right before you get in a swimsuit or go on vacation. Although you may be able to keep up with all of that shaving and waxing, nothing is quite as annoying as going to get into a pair of shorts or a skirt only to find out that you missed a spot while shaving— again! If you are tired of the constant upkeep of shaving, then you may want to give laser hair removal a try.

As a safe, easy, effective, and permanent way to get rid of hair, laser hair removal can give you the silky, hair-free skin that you have always wanted. However, in order to get the best results possible and to ensure that your skin stays healthy, make sure that you understand how to take care of your skin after the procedure.

Back Away From the Tweezers and Give Up On Plucking
One of the things that many people don’t understand about laser hair removal is that it takes multiple sessions and that in between sessions, your hair may grow back in patches. Although it is safe to shave your skin in between treatments, you should make sure that you are avoiding tweezing or plucking in between sessions because it can interrupt the process and cause problems with the hair follicle itself.

Avoid Tanning
Nothing can make your newly hair-free skin look quite as glamorous as a sunkissed glow. However, by exposing your skin to sunlight right after laser hair removal, you increase the risks of getting uneven pigment which can leave your skin looking blotchy.

If you are considering getting laser hair removal, it’s important to understand what things you should avoid during the recovery period. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact Dr. Anna Petropoulos’ office today!
