Laser Treatment Aftercare, Cardiff

Laser and IPL treatments are essentially the delivery of heat to the skin.

Common and expected after effects are erythema (redness) and some swelling. The erythema is a sign that the area has been targeted by the energy and is one of the indications that the correct energy settings were applied. These two after effects settle within a few days. In terms of laser treatment aftercare, we advise clients to continue cooling the treated area every couple of hours for the rest of the day and to apply a soothing aloe vera gel.
 
Some patients may blister which is quite normal. Blistering does not require treatment and will clear within a few days. The treated area should not be exposed to sunlight between sessions without the use of sun block (SPF 30 +)
