Laser Hair Removal Safety
Laser hair removal is an incredible procedure that can provide long-lasting results, along with an array of other amazing benefits. Like any cosmetic procedure, laser hair removal has several risks and side effects that can occur in the rarest of cases. Most patients will not experience any kind of side effects. Here is what you should know regarding the safety of laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal uses advanced, state-of-the-art technology to provide long-lasting results. The laser technology is safely used across the treated area along your skin and is monitored throughout the entire procedure. Our highly trained professionals have administered this procedure on countless occasions and make sure to keep your health as their utmost importance. Patients with darker skin tones may need to be treated with a lower-intensity laser to avoid any possible damage to the outer skin. These considerations will be discussed with you during our consultations so that you know what to expect from the procedure.
Potential Side Effects
As stated, laser hair removal can leave possible side effects in the rarest of cases. These side effects are typically reported as mild swelling, redness, and temporary irritation. The laser technology may irritate the skin around hair follicles targeted, causing your skin to swell. Temporary irritation should only last a few days. Rare side effects can be blistering, crusting. Patients with a darker skin tone or recent sun exposure are slightly more likely to report side effects since the skin pigmentation easier absorbs the laser energy. Side effects can also be increased if your technician is not qualified or experienced in laser hair removal.
