There are 5 after laser hair removal care that will avoid blemishes, irritations and leave your skin always prepared for each session. What to do with the hair that continues to grow and not exposing yourself to the sun are some of the most essential care. Check out the full list.
Opting for permanent laser hair removal is a big decision in an attempt (successful this time) to be hairless on the body parts that bother you.
Whether in the armpits, legs, groin, upper lip, beard, chest, laser hair removal is the solution to get rid of ingrown hairs.
And to make happy those who have already decided that fur is not their style.
But stay tuned for care after each session. They will contribute to the best result and appearance of your skin where the laser was used.
Let me tell you, no sunbathing.
1 DO NOT EXPOSE YOURSELF TO THE SUN AFTER LASER DEPILATION
Our skin has a protein that many people have heard of, called melanin.
Melanin is responsible for giving color to our skin, and when we expose ourselves to the sun it is stimulated as a process to protect our skin.
What does all this have to do with laser hair removal? Yes!
The technology of laser hair removal equipment works by attracting melanin.
Exactly why melanin is also responsible for the pigmentation of our fur and hair.
The energy beam is fired when in contact with the melanin present in the fur.
If you sunbathe after the treatment, there is a risk of spots.
Not to mention that the skin can already become more sensitized and reddened, imagine being exposed to the sun?
The inflammatory and healing process can enhance melanin production and leave stains that are difficult to treat later.
2 DO NOT WAX THE HAIR WITH WAX AFTER LASER DEPILATION
Permanent hair removal treatment works progressively.
In other words, the root of the hair follicle (the pore where the hair grows, you know?) is reached when the hair grows and has already crossed the skin barrier.
And, as you may have noticed, not all hairs grow at the same time.
It is necessary to respect its stages of growth.
Therefore, during the entire period of treatment with laser hair removal, hair cannot be removed from the root, as is the case with wax or tweezers.
It is recommended that you use a blade for those hairs that are still growing and that, throughout the treatment, need to be recognized by the laser.

3 USE SUN PROTECTOR AFTER LASER DEPILATION
We have already reinforced that exposing yourself to the sun does not contribute to the quality of the treatment, more specifically, to a result without stains.
So, if the goal is to be permanently free of hair and without risks to the skin, write it down:
Using sunscreen in the areas where the laser was used is one of the post-laser hair removal treatments most recommended by professionals in the field.
Mainly 48 hours after the sessions and, to reinforce, extra care when depilation is on the face, for example.
4 USE LIGHT CLOTHES AFTER LASER DEPILATION
Avoid very tight clothes and synthetic fabrics as much as possible that make it difficult for the armpit area to breathe. The skin can be a little red and burning, so light clothing is ideal for up to 7 days after the procedure.
Prefer cotton and lighter fabrics. The less friction in the treatment regions the better, so you also eliminate the chances of stains.
5 MOISTURIZERS AFTER LASER HAIR REMOVAL IN THE AXILLA
Using moisturizers on the skin with calming principles greatly relieves the burning sensation, if it appears.
Normally, it is the most sensitive skins that show the most redness after shaving.
In such cases, post-laser hair removal care also includes not taking very hot showers.
Do you have a tip for underarm waxing cases? Choose alcohol-free antiperspirants in the formula and with more soothing and moisturizing ingredients.
It is worth remembering that the recommendation is always to seek a Dermatologist.
This is the professional to identify your skin type and which cream is perfect for post laser hair removal.
These are simple precautions, but they can certainly make a difference in the final result of the depilation and ensure that it is permanent.
