    Avoid sun exposure and hot climates for 7-14 days after the treatment.
  • How can I soothe the treated area after laser hair removal?
    Keep the area cool; apply aloe vera gel following treatment as often as you like. You can keep it refrigerated to cool the area more effectively. If the skin feels hot, a cool compress is recommended (not ice, as freeze burn may occur).
