Preparation And Aftercare For Laser Hair Removal
Thinking of getting your very first laser treatment? I’m sure this will be very exciting for you and possibly, you are curious about the results and how your face would look like after the treatment. At the same time, it’s also best for you to get to know certain things regarding the treatment, mainly doing a thorough preparation before and aftercare routine, after the treatment. Here’s how.
Prepare Your Skin Pre-Treatment
Two weeks before the scheduled appointment, avoid using intensive skincare treatments such as chemical peels, AHA/BHA-based products, and retinol to avoid hypersensitivity to the skin.
Around a week before the big day, it’s best for you to stay indoors at all times and wear sunscreen while you’re at it, to minimize the exposure from UV rays (and this also includes tans, even sunless tanning products) as well as to prevent your skin from getting super sensitive from the lasers. If you do, you need to reschedule the appointment as long as 2 weeks.
It’s also a good idea for you to get a list of your medical histories, so the aestheticians will provide the right treatments accordingly.
During the day, arrived for your appointment with clean, shaven skin, with no creams or makeup applied to it.
Aftercare For Your Skin, Post-Treatment
After the treatment, you can pretty much continue your daily routine as normal, although we encourage you to mellow down a bit to allow your skin recovers beautifully.
And that includes avoiding prolonged exposure to UV rays for a week, as well as harsh products such as face scrub and instead use a gentle cleanser and apply loads of moisturizer to nourish the skin, speeding up the repair, and sunscreen is super important during this critical time
You might want to add some skin-friendly foods/supplements that will help to help your skin recover as soon as possible. Foods that are high in fish oil, vitamins A, C, E (the antioxidant trio for healthy skin) and drinking plenty of water are proven for strong and healthy skin.
