One of the most common questions asked by people choosing a beautician is whether it is possible to swim after laser hair removal? You will certainly be surprised to hear the answer “no”. Of course, no one canceled personal hygiene. But after laser hair removal, you should still refrain from washing in the shower for a day. There is a simple explanation for this, because tap water contains chlorine. And chlorine can irritate the skin. That is why it is not recommended to visit the pools.
There are also reservoirs in which water is not subjected to chlorination. But swimming in them is not recommended even for healthy people. And after epilation, pathogens can enter through the wounds on the skin. It does not matter what kind of body of water it is: river, lake or sea.
In this regard, a vacation or vacation near a reservoir or on the sea coast should be planned after a time after laser hair removal. Moreover, the presence of sodium in sea water can cause irritation on the skin.
