After Effects of Laser Hair Removal - Should I be afraid?

Aug 17, 2007
Considering laser hair removal? This relatively safe procedure is the perfect way to remove hair for an extended period of time. It is much faster, less painful and lasts longer than waxing or other types of hair removal. But, is there anything that you should know before having the procedure done? Are you wondering if in fact there are more facts that you should have on this before you begin?

What's Going To Happen To Me?

For many, the worry is that you will not know what is about to happen. It sounds pretty scary having a laser come at you while you are laying there vulnerable. But, the fact of the matter is that this is a very safe procedure. The laser will be worked by an experienced technician and you should make sure of this. It will feel like a soft tingling sensation across your skin. It is much less painful than waxing is. For most people, the pain is tolerable and there are few complications. They can go back to their normal routine right away.

Possible after-effects

For some, there are a few things that can happen to the skin. All of these conditions are mild and should not be considered something that will happen as the risk is low anyway.

Redness - The first thing that you will notice may be redness to the area that has been treated. In most cases, this is only temporary and will be gone within a few minutes. It is the same basic reaction that you would have if you were to pluck a hair or to damage the skin lightly.

Swelling - Your skin can seem to be a little swollen in the area that is treated. This again is just a reaction to being "hurt" and will go away within a few minutes or so.

Change in skin color - In some very rare cases, there is the potential for the lightening or darkening of the skin. This is very rare and the risk can be minimized by simply insuring you are working with an experienced technician for your laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is a relatively safe procedure that doesn't often go wrong unless there is inexperience or human error, which is rare. So, hopefully we have convinced you that the after effects are minimal and quite tolerable to most people.
