No one wants to deal with unwanted body hair, especially during summer when everyone shows the most skin. While traditional options for hair removal such as shaving and waxing can quickly and effectively get rid of any unwanted hair, these are painful and can cause cuts, stubble and ingrown hair. In comparison, a Laser Hair Removal service is quick, painless and offers longer lasting results. Laser Clinics Australia discusses more about this treatment below.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe to Do During Summer?
Yes, Laser Hair Removal is safe to do during Summer but treatment preparation and sun safety is key. It’s important to choose a reputable and highly experienced Laser Hair Removal clinic like Laser Clinics Australia to perform the service. As experts in the industry, we can help guide you on the necessary before and after care to protect your skin.
Protecting Your Skin from The Sun After Laser Hair Removal
If you’re planning on getting Laser Hair Removal this summer, it’s important to keep your skin protected from the sun. Untanned skin that has been properly protected for a few weeks will help you avoid permanent skin damage and produce the best results.
Steer clear of any sun exposure and tanning at least two weeks before and after the treatment. These make your skin more sensitive to heat, and a laser can cause burns, hyperpigmentation and scarring on heat sensitive skin. If you do have to go outdoors, slather on a high SPF sunscreen to protect your skin. A broad spectrum sunscreen that shields your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays is best. If you experience routine dry skin after the treatment, you can apply a fragrance-free lotion or aloe vera gel to hydrate the skin safely.
