You’ve finally found the perfect solution to get rid of your unwanted hair. And you have now successfully gone through at least a few sessions of laser hair removal in Toronto. Unsure what to do in between or after laser sessions? IGBeauty clinic is here to help. After your laser hair removal in Toronto, follow these tips to help minimize any side effects and ensure you’re getting optimal results from your treatment.
Because the NEW LightSheer Duet and Gentle Max Pro lasers are targeting and “burning” the follicles of your hair, it’s normal that you may experience some sensitivity to it. Following treatment, you may experience a warm sensation similar to a sunburn and may notice some redness around the treated area. Throughout the first few sessions, these side effects will be more prominent as the hair is still thick, but as you continue with laser hair removal, the hair will thin out and reduce these side effects.
Following your laser appointment, it’s important to wear loose clothing to allow the area to breathe. We also recommend avoiding doing anything that can irritate or block the area from healing properly. This includes, physically touching the area, exercising, swimming, or using makeup. After 24-48 hours, you can resume normal activities.
Because laser hair removal involves 5-7 sessions with around 6-8 weeks in between each session, it’s important to know what to do when you aren’t being treated. In order to keep your skin in top shape following a treatment, we recommend exfoliating the treated area 4-5 days after treatment. Getting rid of dead and dry skin throughout your treatments can minimize the effects of redness and irritation.
It’s also important to remember to avoid any kind of sun exposure for at least two weeks before and two weeks after treatment. At any other time, always make sure to apply SPF 50 sunscreen.
It’s understandable that once some hair grows back you aren’t going to want to wait six weeks to shave it again. Of course, you can get rid of any unwanted hair in between sessions, but make sure to only shave or use hair removal creams. If you wax or tweeze you can disrupt the laser hair removal process.
If you want to get the most out of your laser hair removal in Toronto, be prepared to commit to several sessions. The cost of laser hair removal may be expensive, but IGBeauty has preset packages and prices to suit your needs. Visit our pricing page for more information.
