Can I shower after laser hair removal?
Showering immediately after your laser hair removal session is not recommended. When you have a laser treatment the skin will remain sensitive to heat for a period of 24-48 hours so it is important that the skin be kept cool and free from perfumed or scented products during this time. You can have a shower after laser hair removal treatment but it best to wait until the day after your session and also to keep the temperature of the water quite tepid to avoid your skin becoming irritated.
How long after laser hair removal can I shower?
Ideally 24 hours but if you must shower wait at least 6-8 hours after your session. Use tepid water and avoid using any harsh products, scrubs, exfoliating mitts, loofahs or sponges on your treatment area. Use an unscented body wash and pat dry your treatment area with a towel to avoid damaging the skin.
Using 100% Aloe Vera directly after you shower will also help the skin to recover after laser. Store this in the fridge for added cooling and soothing benefits.
