Fiver tips for Post Care treatment
Cleanse the area treated gently.
If there is any crusting, apply an antibiotic cream. The treated area may be washed gently with a mild soap. Skin should be patted dry & not rubbed during the first 48 hours.
No makeup & lotion/moisturizer/deodorant for the first 24 hours.
Keep the treated area clean & dry, if further redness or irritation persists, skip your makeup & moisturizer, & deodorant (for underarms) until the irritation has subsided.
Do not pick/scratch/wax/thread/tweeze the area.
Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin. Do not use any other hair removal methods or products, other than shaving, on the treated area during the course of your IPL treatments, as it will prevent you from achieving the best results and stimulate the hair follicle, leading to potential regrowth.
Avoid sun exposure
After getting laser hair removal IPL, the first step in protecting your skin is to avoid exposure to the sun for at least 2 weeks after treatment. This is to reduce the chance of dark or light spots. It will also be important to avoid sunbathing and also use sunscreen – SPF 25 or higher – whenever you are going to be out in the sun.
Exfoliate to speed up hair shedding.
When you get laser hair treatment IPL, dead hairs will begin to shed within 5-30 days from the treatment date: stubble, representing dead hair being shed from the hair follicle. That is normal. It is not new hair growth, but the dead hair pushing its way out of the follicle.
One of the best ways to protect your skin is to exfoliate it during the next four weeks after getting the treatment. When exfoliating your skin, you will need to use a washcloth and mild scrub wash. Once assembling the washcloth and scrub wash, you will then just wipe over the treated area in circular motions. By doing this several times per week, you will accelerate the shedding and prepare yourself for your next treatment.
