How to Handle a Bad Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Learn how to handle a bad laser treatment from Completely Bare owner (and former Real Housewife of NYC) Cindy Barshop in this Howcast video.


If you get a bad laser treatment, get burned, or some type of contraindication there are certain things that you should know up front and a professional place should tell you.

One of the things is to make sure that you're not on Accutane I would not do it. Also make sure you're not pregnant while you do this. Also make sure that you don't have a fresh burn or tan when you do this. There are machines that can take care of tan skin. But I'm talking about a freshly new tan.

Once we have that covered and that you protect yourself with that, if you do have a contraindication or you do get burned the first thing I tell anybody is to make sure that you put ice on the area. Ice, ice, ice. If you do get a blister and it opens, you put a Neosporin on the area. Or after you put the ice on after I would probably say, about five hours of icing, then you could put a hydrocortisone on there.

I also tell everybody just go over to your dermatologist and let them make a suggestion on what's the best result.

So the three steps, ice, a little bit of aloe and then hydrocortisone cream until you see the doctor.
