The Complete Guide to Hair Removal Aftercare: Waxing, Laser, Shaving, and More

Updated: Apr 9

So, you've decided on your choice of body hair removal options, but everything has different "rules." Come with us as we explore the essential aftercare tips for different hair removal methods to ensure smooth, healthy skin. Hopefully, we can clear up any confusion for you!

Everything can be so much to absorb from waxing to laser, shaving, and depilatory creams. How do you figure out what is what so you can make an informed decision? We want to teach you how to properly care for your skin to maintain optimal results and minimize any potential side effects regardless of how you decide to remove any unwanted body hair.

Waxing Aftercare:

  • Keep the waxed area clean and dry for 24 hours.

  • Avoid hot baths, saunas, and excessive sweating to prevent irritation. (I know skipping that workout wasn't the plan, but next time, book your wax on your rest day so it won't interfere.)

  • Exfoliate the skin regularly to avoid ingrown hairs.

  • Keep the waxed area moisturized with a light unscented lotion that won't clog your pores.

Pro Tip: Take it easy and use the first 24 hours post-wax as an excuse to relax on the couch and finish that Netflix series you haven't had time for lately.

Laser Hair Removal Aftercare:

  • Protect the treated area from direct sunlight and wear sunscreen daily.

  • Avoid using harsh skincare products or exfoliants on the treated area for a few days post-treatment.

  • Follow any specific instructions provided by your laser technician.

  • Keep skin moisturized between treatment appointments.

Pro Tip: Waxing and Laser can be done together if you anticipate going longer than six weeks between laser treatments. This can be ideal for clients who are on the move and traveling for work.

Shaving Aftercare:

  • Moisturize the skin after shaving to prevent dryness and irritation.

  • Use a sharp razor and shaving cream to minimize the risk of cuts and razor burn.

  • Avoid shaving over irritated or inflamed skin to prevent further irritation.

Depilatory Cream Aftercare:

  • Rinse off the cream thoroughly after use to avoid skin irritation.

  • Moisturize the skin to soothe any potential irritation or dryness.

  • Perform a patch test before using the cream to check for any adverse reactions.
