If you’re tired of excess body hair and shaving on the regular, it’s time to schedule an appointment for laser hair removal with us at Georgia Center for Female Health. Laser hair removal is virtually painless and can be used on just about any part of your body. Best of all, once you have the procedure, you won’t need to worry about the hair growing back overnight. Here are a few tips that you should follow once you have the procedure performed:
Limit Sun Exposure
Once you undergo laser hair removal, you’ll need to limit sun exposure the day off to avoid sun damage accruing on the treated area.
Use Gentle Exfoliation
After laser hair removal treatment, you’ll want to gently exfoliate your skin to help improve the circulation and to help prevent ingrown hairs. You can use a clean loofah to gently exfoliate your skin each time you bathe.
Avoid Excessive Heat
While your skin is recovering from the laser treatment, be sure to avoid excessive heat for at least the first day. This should include avoiding hot showers or baths, or soaking in hot tubs.
Hold Off on Applying Deodorant and Body Sprays
Following your laser hair removal treatment, you’ll need to hold off on applying deodorant and body sprays on the treated area for at least 24-hours.
Watch for the Stubble
Once you’ve had your laser hair removal treatment, you’ll want to keep the hair away. In most cases, you’ll remain free of bothersome body hair for at least several months. However, once you begin to see, or feel, that bothersome stubble again, you’ll want to schedule a follow-up appointment. After just one or two follow-up treatments, you’ll begin to notice less and less of the breakthrough stubble.
You don’t have to regularly pick up the razor or tweezers to get rid of that bothersome body hair. Schedule an appointment with us at the Georgia Center for Female Health for laser hair removal and enjoy silkier skin. We look forward to hearing from you!
