LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS IN KELOWNA 
 

Post Laser Hair Removal Care And Recovery

You will need to take special care of your skin after and between laser hair removal appointments. It will take approximately four weeks from your last appointment for your skin to heal completely, although you will start to see results almost immediately from your first appointment. During those four weeks, here is our guide for laser hair removal aftercare. 


Avoid Makeup, Fragrances, and Beauty Products

If you have had chin or upper lip laser hair removal, you should plan to skip makeup for the first few days (at least 24 hours). After the initial few days, avoid using too many makeup products and opt for mineral and natural products. To remove makeup, Use tepid water, a fragrance-free cleanser, and avoid rubbing and wiping. For leg, bikini, or underarm laser hair removal, skip the body wash, perfumes, and lotions as these may irritate your skin. 


Limit UV Exposure

While we always advise limiting UV exposure and especially wearing sunscreen to prevent premature ageing, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and more, you may want to avoid putting any products on the treatment area, including sunscreen. The best solution: stay out of the sun, wear a wide-brimmed hat, and loose light clothing to protect your skin while keeping cool.
 

Avoid The Pool

While this one may be a little easier to avoid during COVID if you don’t have your own pool, we do suggest avoiding hot tubs, hot baths, and hot showers as well. The chlorination in pools and hot tubs combined with hot water can agitate your already irritated skin. Turn your shower down a few degrees and skip the bath as hot water can dry out and inflame your skin. Instead, try a cold or cool shower, which has many circulatory benefits, and/or use an ice pack to reduce swelling and cool your skin. 
 

Be Gentle With Your Skin

While your skin is healing, make sure to pat, not rub, and avoid shaving or plucking. For the first five days, avoid exfoliating. Wear loose-fitting clothes from breathable materials that won’t scratch or agitate your skin. 
 

When In Doubt, Always Consult With Your Skin Care Specialist

If you have any laser hair removal questions or concerns, ask your skin care specialist. If you follow these basic guidelines for the first few days, you will help protect your skin while it heals, revealing smooth and hairless results! At Okanagan Skin Health Centre, our highly skilled and trained nursing, esthetic and clerical staff strive to provide you with quality service, current products, and effective treatment in an inviting and comfortable setting.

FAQ's

The duration of this hair removal system varies depending on your skin type, the coarseness of your hair, and the size and location of the treatment area.

When can I wear deodorant?

Avoid deodorant for at least a day, if not longer and use natural or recommended products to minimize irritation.
