What to Expect After Milwaukee Laser Hair Removal


It’s no secret that winter is the best time to start laser hair removal treatments in Milwaukee. As your summer glow fades and the pigment leaves your skin, the lasers are better able to distinguish the contrast between the hair and skin. The certified experts at the Cosmetic Laser Centers throughout Wisconsin are dedicated to providing you with all of the tools you need to get the most out of your laser hair removal treatments. Here is a bit of insight as to what you can expect in the hours/days/weeks after your laser hair removal treatment.

Skin Irritation

In order for the laser to do it’s job, your skin will need to be a bit agitated. Immediately after your treatment, and for up to 24 hours depending on your skin, you’ll notice your skin may be a bit itchy and red. For those that have experienced it, it has been described as a similar feeling to razor burn. If the redness lasts longer than a day or so, give us a call. While it’s likely normal, it’s good to let us know.


Your first laser hair removal treatment will yield the most noticeable results. In the first few weeks after your treatment, you’ll notice a decrease in hair growth and the need for maintenance. Exfoliating your skin will help the hairs make their way out of the follicles. It’s important, however, not to pull out or pluck any hairs that don’t come out on their own, as it will only offset the process. Shaving, on the other hand, is okay.

As you make your way through the hair removal process, you should note that there will be hair growth. One treatment will not completely rid the area of hair. If you’d like to learn more about the laser hair removal process in Milwaukee, contact the Cosmetic Laser Center today!
