Quick information about Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal itself is also very common, but is it safe for everyone? Luckily we have good news for you, but more on that in a moment…

Let’s start by briefly describing the phenomenon of laser hair removal.

It is the only such effective method on the market which, after a series of treatments, will solve your problem with unwanted body hair. It is perfect for people who have problems with irritation after the so-called “traditional” shaving. 

The treatment itself is based on directing the laser light which is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The melanin converts the light into thermal energy which destroys the follicle. It gives really great results, however, it cannot be done at one time and a series of treatments are needed, depending on the type and thickness of hair we want to remove.

The treatment itself is usually painless and easy to carry out, but what about the side effects…?!

Laser hair removal side effects, and myths

Like any other treatment, laser hair removal can have some side effects, fortunately, these do not occur in everyone.

Some of the more common after-effects may include:

  • Darker or lighter skin discoloration
  • Blisters
  • Mild swelling around the hair’s strand follicles
  • Slight redness of the skin
  • Burns
  • Color changes may occur, mainly in those with darker skin (these changes are usually temporary)
  • Temporary irritation resulting in crusting, scarring, blistering or other changes in skin surface

You may also encounter opinions that laser hair removal is carcinogenic, fortunately, after many years of research this has turned out to be a myth. It is also not dangerous to health, as lasers used for hair removal do not emit harmful radiation and do not reach deeper than a few centimeters under the skin.

However, in the beginning, it is worth making a test and checking how our skin will behave under the influence of the laser, it is called the laser test. 

What to do when such a situation occurs and such effects appear in us?

 The best thing to do is not to panic, apply moisturizers or other products that can bring relief, cold compresses are also good, as they are after sunburns when sunbathing.

As far as the risk of side effects is concerned, we already know that they are individual, for some people they occur, for some rarely, for others never. 

However, we can expect that the higher the intensity of laser light and the power of the device, the higher the probability of occurrence of unwanted complications. 

Every skin is different

Okay, but are there any contraindications when it comes to using?

It is important to remember that every skin reacts differently to laser light, so it is important to carry out a prior test. 

People with fresh tan, pregnant women, and people with a history of viral or bacterial infections should not start the treatment.

The existence of diseases such as cancer or diabetes is also a contraindication.

One good way is to buy your own epilation device. Instead of visiting beauty salons where prices for these treatments vary, we can save time and money and set up our own salon at home 🙂

In summary

Many of us will have some skin issues, but you have to remember that IPL can adjust to your skin type with power level also with skin tone, and that plays a big role in neglecting the side effects. If you have any of the laser hair removal side effects described above don’t panic and you should quickly consult your case with a local dermatologist. If you choose to use a home laser hair removal device rather than IPL done at a doctor’s office, follow the instructions that come with the device to help reduce the risk of injury, especially eye injuries – wear glasses that come within the package!
