Post Treatment Guide for
Laser Hair Removal

What to Expect After Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure?

Following your Laser Hair Removal treatment you may experience some side effects depending on your skin type, color of hair and adherence to self-care. Some potential side effects include skin irritation, mild discomfort, redness or swelling in the treatment area. To best manage any potential side effects, we recommend:



  • Avoid vigorous exercise for one day

  • Avoid saunas/steam rooms or hot showers

  • You may apply aloe vera gel or hydrocortisone cream to redness or inflammation

When Should I Expect to See Results?

Hair color and skin type influence the success and speed at which you will see results. You should begin noticing some results within 1-2 weeks following treatment. For most people, 6-8 treatments are needed to see full results, with typically a 4-6 week window between appointments. The number of recommended appointments will generally depend on the targeted area of the body, skin tone and hair color. Full results will become more noticeable after each treatment.

While most laser hair removal is sustained indefinitely, some patients choose to have periodic touch ups. Also note that areas where hair growth is hormonally stimulated, (for example, facial hair) may require more frequent maintenance treatments.

How Do I Maximize My Treatment Results?

In order to achieve the best outcome from your laser hair removal series, we recommend that you adhere to the schedule provided during your consultation. Treatments are typically performed every 4-6 weeks, however, your technician will explain your personalized treatment plan. Missing appointments on the recommended schedule may require additional treatments to attain the best result. We strongly encourage you to avoid tanning or direct sun exposure in the treated area. If you have recent sun exposure, your technician may postpone your appointment to ensure your safety and this may result in requiring additional sessions.
