Q: I’ve just started laser hair removal treatment. What should I do to ensure the best results?


A: Until the redness has resolved, you should avoid the following:

  • applying cosmetics to the treated areas;
  • swimming, especially in pools with chemicals;
  • hot tubs, jacuzzis and saunas;
  • activities that cause excessive perspiration;
  • aggressive scrubbing and use of exfoliants on the treated area;
  • sun exposure or tanning of treated areas. Apply a sunscreen of SPF45 or greater to prevent skin colour changes.
