To ensure the best possible results, it is important to avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before and after laser hair removal treatment and to use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. Dark skin is just as vulnerable to sunburn as light skin, so it is essential to take the necessary precautions to protect your skin. UVA and UVB rays penetrate the cloud layer and impact our skin on a daily basis. If treatment areas are regularly exposed to the sun, it is recommended to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a protection factor of 50, such as PA++++.
Generally speaking, sunscreen should be reapplied every two hours. When using sunscreen after laser hair removal, make sure to use one with a minimum protection factor of 15 and cover the area whenever possible to minimize sun exposure. Don't forget that the effectiveness of sunscreen decreases over time, so you'll want to reapply it before leaving the office or running errands. Skin is more vulnerable after laser hair removal, so you should avoid direct exposure to the sun as much as possible. Children's sunscreens are usually stronger, so you can use them after the laser hair removal session.
