Laser Hair Removal

What is the recovery time for laser hair removal?

After undergoing laser hair removal, there is virtually no downtime. However, it is common to experience mild side effects such as erythema (redness) and perifollicular edema (bumps) which usually resolve almost immediately but can sometimes last for a few hours or days after the treatment. To minimize these effects, it is recommended to avoid heat sources such as warm baths and exercise for the rest of the day. If any discomfort is experienced, taking ibuprofen, applying aloe vera, or using ice can help alleviate any discomfort.
