Your Guide to Laser Hair Removal Aftercare

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today. The aestheticians at Phases Skin Care and Laser Center are here to answer your questions about the laser hair removal process, including the best tips for laser hair removal aftercare.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by using a laser to destroy your hair follicles at the root. It’s normal to experience minimal redness and bumps afterwards. 

Your body will then start shedding this dead hair. At first it will look like your hair is just growing back, but your skin is pushing the dead hair follicles out.

Most patients will need to receive multiple treatments to experience the full effects of laser hair reduction. Usually it’s a series of at least 5 treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. So it’s good to be prepared for how to care for your skin between your treatments.

Best tips for laser hair removal aftercare

Avoid the sun

As with any laser treatment, you will want to avoid sun exposure for the first few days following your session. Your skin will be extra sensitive while it is healing. Using medical-grade skincare products can help speed healing and reduce any side effects.

Cleanse gently

Use only mild soap and pat your skin dry, do not rub for at least 48 hours. Do not use any lotion, moisturizer, or deodorant on the area for the first 24 hours.

Don’t pick/wax/tweeze

Using other methods of hair removal (other than shaving) in between your treatments can affect your results, so are best avoided.


As your skin begins to shed the dead hair, gentle exfoliation can assist the process and help the hair shed faster.
