While your dermatologist is responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of your skin condition, there is still much you can do as a patient to make these treatments as comfortable and effective as possible. By following your doctor’s preparation and recovery tips, you can protect your skin from irritation while enabling a faster recovery.
- To prevent side effects and interference with the treatment, patients should avoid the sun and waxing prior to laser hair removal. Learn more about preparing for laser hair removal with this Mayo Clinic guide.
- Because a bikini wax can irritate sensitive skin, be careful to avoid products and situations that can further irritate or infect the skin. Additional tips for bikini wax recovery include wearing loose clothing and soothing the skin with aloe.
