Laser hair removal is an effective way of removing hair throughout your entire body. Laser hair removal is usually performed in a number of sessions before the procedure becomes effective. Each session can cause a large amount of pain leaving the treated areas swollen and red. The pain will go away on its own but that will take days. Therefore, it is important to calm and soothe your skin immediately following a laser hair removal procedure. Fortunately, there are a number of bath soaks that you can use to help you do this.

Butterbur Leaves Bath Soak

Butterbur is frequently used to treat migraines because it is considered to be a natural analgesic. The analgesic properties can be found in the leaves. In addition, the herb contains anti-inflammatory properties that can be used to help reduce any swelling and redness that you may experience after a laser hair removal process. A butterbur leaf bath soak can be created by placing fresh leaves in a large pot of water. Turn the heat to high and allow the mixture to come to a boil. Once it boils, turn the heat down and allow the butterbur leaves to soak. After a few hours have passed, fill up your bathtub with warm water and add the butterbur mixture. Allow your legs and other areas of your body that were treated to soak in the warm bath for several minutes. The longer you soak your body the better the butterbur will be able to penetrate and absorb into your skin.

Lemongrass Oil Bath Soak

Lemongrass is utilized for a number of purposes, including as a relaxant for pain and stress. The herb can also be found in culinary dishes. The best way to create a lemongrass oil bath soak is by filling your bathtub with hot water. Add a generous amount of lemongrass oil to the water and allow the water to cool for a few minutes. Place your entire body in the bath and sit in the mixture for several minutes or until the water is no longer warm. Once you are done with the bath, you can rub the lemongrass oil on the treated areas in order to offer additional relief. Using the oil immediately after the bath will ensure that it is absorbed by your skin.

Dealing with the pain that follows a laser hair removal session can be extremely uncomfortable. Therefore, use these bath soaks to help alleviate some of that pain. To learn more, speak with a business like Marjan Medical Laser Inc.
