5. You should not exercise after hair removal
 
Within 24 hours after treatment, heat from the laser remains on your skin.

Otherwise, this will be an extremely favorable environment for bacteria to invade, causing inflammation of the pores.

6. Sunscreen is an alienator after hair removal

When going to a beauty salon, the doctor can advise you on what you should and should not do before and after your treatment. One of them is that you will need to avoid sunbathing or sun exposure during this time. Besides, if you tan, you may have to wait until the skin recovers to use the service. So, to preserve your skin, never forget to apply sunscreen for at least 15 minutes before going out.
7. You will have to change your diet and skincare products

You should avoid chemical exfoliants with products containing glycolic acid and retinol two days before and after treatment. Besides, please add mineral sprays and moisturizers to the skin. Once you’ve opted for laser hair removal, you should avoid using other methods like wax and epilation.
8. Could not remove 100% of the hair

Hair can continue to grow due to the action of hormones in the body. However, because the light has controlled these hairs, and the germ of the hair has been destroyed. So even if they exist, the hairs will also be pale, stunted, and smooth before. Therefore, when eliminating hair permanently by the method, usually: 80-90% of hard, black hair will disappear, 10-20% of soft, smooth, pale hair will still exist.

Those who should not remove hair

  • Pregnant women.
  • Skin sensitive to light, sunburn, open wounds.
  • The skin is treated with malignant pathologies (tumors, tumors, sores, infections).
  • People who are using heart, kidney, burn or injury devices.
