After your treatment you will need to avoid direct heat stimulation on the skin such as hot baths, showers, saunas, and steam. Avoiding cardiovascular exercise is crucial as you do not wish to heat the skin as well as chlorinated water which can be found in swimming pools. Perfume, body lotions, after-shave, make-up and deodorant should not be used on the treatment area for 24 hours.
Tight clothing should also be avoided for 48 hours as this can aggravate the heated area. At The Harley Laser Specialists the only product that we recommend to use post treatment for 48 hours is aloe vera gel.
