Can I Have Shower, Makeup, Exercise After Laser Hair Removal?

Avoid To A Hot Bath / Shower For 24 - 48 Hours

If you need to shower please make it a cooler shower after a couple of hours and do not use anything abrasive.
It is best to avoid having a hot bath for 24 - 48 hours after laser hair removal treatment as it will only draw more blood to the surface of the skin, adding to the discomfort. When you do shower, soap and other skin products are perfectly fine to use. Just avoid rubbing the area, pat it dry with a soft towel. Underarm areas that have been treated should be cleaned with alcohol every few hours for the first day. Also avoid swimming in chlorinated water for 48 -72 hours.

Weeks Later :

Not all hair follicles will be treated after each laser treatment. But for the ones that are dead, the hair growth will stop and the shaft will be shed without pain over the next few weeks. You can help the shedding process by gently scrubbing with a washcloth or luffa to help loosen the shaft and root from the pore. It may take 2-3 weeks after treatment for the dead hair to drop from the skin. Strands that have some resistance still have a living root and will be deadened on the next round of treatment. If you notice that you are not shedding hairs in the shower, this may indicate that the laser settings were too low and the hair follicle was not destroyed. Talk to your clinician about modifying the laser settings.

When Do I Have Shower, Makeup And Exercise After Laser Hair Reduction Treatment?

Can Put Makeup On Almost Immediately

If you had the laser done on the face, you can put makeup on almost immediately. One way to help skin return to its normal state and remain healthy throughout the course of laser treatments is to use a good moisturizing lotion or cream. Antibacterial creams are not necessary in most cases, they may cause further drying.

Try not to use liquid based makeup to keep the skins and its pours clear and fresh. Make sure it is new makeup to prevent any sort of infection and make sure you have moisturizer under the makeup. However if there is any blistering or crusting, its better to avoid makeup as the makeup can cause some allergic reaction to broken skin. It worth noting that you need to avoid to perfumed products such as aromatherapy oils for at least 24 - 48 hours on the area treated.
