If you are thinking about undergoing laser hair treatments, you need to research thoroughly to make an informed decision. You need to be sure of the side effects of the treatment, the procedure itself, as well as the facts about the process. The laser hair treatment procedure is not as painful as most people think, and it is a fast process. Mostly, the procedure takes about 20 to 30 minutes for every session.
It is advisable to avoid going to the gym, hot showers and sauna immediately after a laser hair removal. Medical experts recommend waiting for at least 48 hours for you to take a hot shower or go to the gym after the procedure because the laser heat remains in your skin for about 24 hours. You should avoid retinol creams, scrubs and glycolic acid two days before and after the procedure. You might have to switch up some of your beauty products and regime two weeks before and after the procedure.
