Laser Hair Removal Aftercare: Dos + Dont’s 

Laser Hair Removal Treatment given on legs | Arabella Medical Aesthetics | Knoxville, TX

DO shave between appointments

You are welcome to shave, as needed, in between treatments. We recommend waiting a few days after your treatment to resume shaving. 

DON’T wax or tweeze between appointments 

Waxing and tweezing removes the hair follicle, which we need to be intact to get the most effective treatment. If the follicle is not there, the laser won’t hit anything. 

DO avoid heavy lotions + perfumes for 24 hours

Your skin is vulnerable and prone to irritation after your laser hair removal treatment. We recommend avoiding the use of all products, especially heavy lotions and perfumes, for at least 24 hours. Your provider can go over approved products during your appointment! 

DON’T do any intense exercise for 24 hours 

Intense exercise after a laser hair removal treatment can cause ingrown hairs and irritation. We recommend exercising prior to your treatment, and then holding off for 24 hours post-treatment. 

DO trust the process 

Our laser hair removal packages include a series of six treatments. You likely will see a reduction of hair after the first few treatments, but we highly recommend completing the series for best results! Touch ups are available to purchase if needed. 

DON’T ignore your provider’s advice

Our advanced practice providers are experts when it comes to pre + post treatment care. We have years of experience in the medical aesthetics + cosmetic derm field, which means that we know what works/doesn’t work and what you should/shouldn’t do. Our advanced practice providers want you to maximize your results, which is why we send you home with some aftercare instructions!
