Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a popular option for people who are tired of waxing, tweezing, or shaving unwanted body hair. In recent years, it has become one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures. Following a simple after-care process, including protecting the skin and choosing the right products, will help ensure that the treated area heals quickly and completely.

Apply ice or cold packs to numb the treated area. After laser hair removal, you may feel some minor discomfort like a mild sunburn. The area might also be slightly swollen or red. Ice and cold packs are an easy way to ease this pain. You can use ice or cold packs immediately after the laser treatment, so put them in the freezer before your appointment.[1]

  • Wrap the ice or cold pack in a towel before you use it; directly applying the pack to the skin may cause more irritation.

  • Ice the treated area for up to 10 minutes at least 3 times a day until the discomfort is gone. Wait at least an hour before reapplying the ice or cold pack. If you leave the ice pack on for too long, it will restrict the blood flow to that area and slow down your healing time.
