1. Hydrate your skin

Before and after treatment: Be sure to moisturize your skin regularly in the weeks leading up to your laser hair removal session. After each laser hair removal session, apply a gentle, non-irritating moisturizer to the treated areas. Opt for a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizing cream or lotion suitable for your skin type. This will help soothe the skin and minimize any redness or discomfort. Well hydrated skin is more supple and receptive to treatment.

2.Avoid sun exposure

Évitez de vous exposer au soleil pendant au moins une à deux semaines avant votre traitement. Le bronzage de la peau peut augmenter le risque d’effets secondaires indésirables tels que des brûlures ou des taches pigmentaires.

3. Use gentle, non-abrasive exfoliating products

Avoid harsh scrubs or exfoliating products during the treatment period. These products can irritate already sensitive skin after laser hair removal. Instead, opt for gentle, non-abrasive exfoliants.

4.Drink enough water

Hydrating your skin also starts from within. Be sure to drink enough water each day to maintain optimal hydration in your skin.

5.Protect your skin from the sun

After each laser hair removal session, protect your skin from UV rays by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30. This will help prevent sun damage and maintain your treatment results.

6.Avoid hot showers

Choose lukewarm showers to preserve your skin’s hydration, as hot showers can cause it to dry out.

7. Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week

Exfoliating the skin removes impurities, dead cells and excess sebum from the surface of the epidermis. This can be done with mechanical scrubs or chemical exfoliants. Regular exfoliation improves skin texture, stimulates cell turnover and promotes a radiant complexion. Choose products that are suitable for your skin type, take precautions to avoid irritation, moisturize your skin after exfoliation and protect it from the sun. 

frequently asked Questions

Indeed, the use of self-tanners before a laser hair removal session can cause problems. Self-tanners can create artificial coloring of the skin, which can interfere with the laser hair removal process. The laser light is absorbed by the pigments of the skin, and if the skin is artificially tanned, this can increase the risk of burns or skin irritation. It is therefore recommended to avoid the use of self-tanners before a laser hair removal session to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
