Are there any side effects of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal does have some side effects, though they are generally minor. The most common side effects are redness, swelling, and skin irritation. You should always contact your provider if you experience these symptoms. Blisters can also occur after the procedure. Bleeding is uncommon.

Some people may experience temporary redness or sunburn after their laser hair removal treatment. However, this is a temporary side effect of the procedure. The hairs that grow back will be lighter and finer. Some patients will have to undergo several treatments before they see complete results. The first treatment may only be effective for up to 80 percent of hairs. Overdoing the procedure could reactivate the hair follicles. For this reason, laser hair removal should only perform on small areas.

After laser hair removal, you should use a moisturizer. It can reduce pain and discomfort. Your provider may also apply a cool gel. This is important, as the laser heat may cause your skin to become crusted. This crusting can cause bleeding and scabbing. You should avoid picking at the crusted skin to prevent the risk of scarring.

Typically, side effects of laser hair removal are temporary. After treatment, your skin may appear red or sore and feel tender. However, this discomfort is mild and should disappear within a week. In addition, some patients may experience a slight crusting of the skin. This is not permanent, but should treat immediately. The skin will also appear slightly darker or lighter depending on your skin type.
