Before Laser Hair Removal
• Discontinue sun tanning, including the use of tanning beds and self-tanning creams 4 weeks before, and throughout the laser hair removal treatment course.
• Always use an SPF 30, or greater on any laser treatment area that will be exposed to the sun, and reapply every 2 hours throughout the day. Wear protective, light-occluding hats and clothing.
• Discontinue the use of exfoliating creams that include Retin-A and other Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) ingredients on the areas to be treated.
• Refrain from tweezing, waxing, sugaring, electrolysis or other epilation methods for at least 4 weeks prior to laser hair removal and for the duration of treatments. It is best to shave or trim excess hair during the course of laser hair removal treatment.
• If you have a history of herpes outbreaks in the area of treatment, you should consult your Primary Care Provider for medical evaluation and possible prophylaxis prior to laser hair removal
• The areas treated with laser hair removal should be shaved or closely-clipped before the first treatment, and before any subsequent hair removal treatments
• Numbing cream may be applied to the laser hair removal areas 45minutes before treatment to improve comfort. Numbing cream can be purchased at any drugstore
After Laser Hair Removal
• A mild sunburn-like sensation is normal after laser hair removal. This usually lasts 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours. Apply cold gel packs or cool wet cloths to the areas treated for 15 minutes every 2-4 hours until symptoms subside.
• Bathe or shower as usual. If the areas treated with laser hair removal are sensitive to heat, cool showers and baths will offer relief.
• Avoid aggressive scrubbing, use of exfoliants, scrub brushes and loofa sponges until the laser hair removal treatment area has returned to its pre-treatment condition.
• Avoid, swimming, hot tubs/Jacuzzis, and excessive exercise for 7 days after laser hair removal or until redness resolves.
• Avoid sun exposure to treated areas, as well as the use of sun tanning beds and self-tanning creams.
• Use a SPF-30 or greater sunscreen on the treated areas, and reapply regularly, if sun exposure is unavoidable. Sun avoidance will decrease the likelihood of skin color changes and hyperpigmentation.
• Appearance of hair growth or stubble will continue for 7- 30 days after laser hair removal. This is not necessarily new hair growth, but the treated hairs being expunged/purged from the skin.
• If blisters occur after laser hair removal, apply antibiotic ointment to the areas 2 times a day until healed.Aquaphor is available over the counter, but your doctor may give you a stronger prescription-based cream to use. Aquaphor contains petrolatum and can be applied as needed while your burns heal.Burns after laser hair removal are rare and are usually not very deep. The usual treatment would be to treat like any other superficial burn with a topical agent such at bacitracin or other antibiotic ointment
• Do not pick or remove scabs or crusting; this will help decrease the chance of infection and scarring.
• A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory such as acetaminophen recommended by your doctor will help reduce discomfort. Take according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
• Hairs that were in the resting phase at the time of laser hair removal may enter the active growth phase in 1 to 6 months depending on the body area.
• Do not tweeze, wax, or use any other form of hair removal other than shaving between laser hair removal treatments.
