Even though our skin shields us from the ultra violet rays of the sun, it plays an incredibly important role in ensuring that no harmful toxins, chemicals, bacteria or other foreign contaminants make their way into your body and it needs protection as well, especially after laser hair removal.  Skin that has been lasered is sensitive and easily irritated.  You’ll want to keep lasered skin as clean as possible and follow these easy steps to protect it:

1. Apply Aloe Vera Gel to treated area.  Aloe vera gel contains two hormones: auxin and givverellins that have wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation.

2. Cooling gels and Aloe vera should be applied up to 3 days after treatment to keep skin moisturized.  

3. Sunscreen is a must!!!  Lasered skin is vulnerable to sunlight so it is important to protect it in order to avoid sunburn and premature aging.  

Skin that has been lasered is sensitive, easily irritated and exposed.  Be advised that washing the skin with cleansers that are harsh and stripping, such as the ones that are acid-based or exfoliating, can actually damage your skin.  Keep your skin as clean as possible, which may mean limiting makeup and the use of your regular skin care products, especially those with ingredients like acids and retinoids.  As always, you can ask our physicians at hand what skincare products you use and when you can start using them again.
