Is Laser Hair Removal Safe? Are there any side effects?


Is Laser Hair Removal a Safe Procedure?

Yes, laser hair removal treatment is safe. It is a perfect solution for people who want to permanently get rid of unwanted body hair from different parts of their body like the chest, stomach, back, legs, hands, bikini region, etc. Laser hair removal treatment is a completely safe procedure if it is conducted under the supervision of a well-trained professional. At makeO skin(formely skinnsi), we are well-equipped with the best team of dermatologists and professionals who are trained in handling laser technology. To ensure that you don’t suffer from any burns or skin reactions, we use a quadruple wavelength laser. It is a combination of 4 wavelengths - 755+810+940+1064 nm.

Depending on your skin sensitivity, there could be minimal after-effects in rare cases. These effects are temporary and perfectly curable. Some of these common side effects of permanent hair removal are listed below:

6 Potential After Effects of Laser Hair Removal

Before you buy a package and book an appointment with us, we want you to know that there are some common laser hair removal side effects. Here’s what you must know-

1. Folliculitis

In some cases, people experience tiny pimple-like bumps on their skin after the laser hair removal session. These bumps are known as Folliculitis. These happen because your skin is irritated. The good news is that these bumps are nothing to fret about as they typically disappear in a few days on their own.

2. Redness and Irritation

One of the side effects of laser hair removal is redness. People often complain of redness and irritation on their skin. However, there is nothing to worry about because it usually disappears in about an hour. However, if it persists, you can use ice packs. You can also consider consulting your dermatologist for safety precautions.

3. Change in skin colour

Yet another common laser hair removal side effect is the change in your skin colour. Since the melanin is affected, your treated skin tends to become lighter. However, you should not stress about it. One of the common reasons for a change in skin colour is when we step out in the sun. Therefore, to minimise pigmentation, you should use sunscreen.

4. Burns and blisters

Even though getting burns and blisters is rare, it is still one of the side effects of laser hair removal treatment. makeO skin(formely skinnsi) laser hair removal treatment, take utmost care of your skin. Each session is organised after a consultation with a well-trained dermatologist. Also, one of the common reasons why burns and blisters happen is if you have a darker skin tone, in which case the melanin in your skin absorbs the laser, causing blisters. Make sure you don’t pick on the blister as it can cause scars.

5. Scars

A scar is a burn that is visible as brown spots. After a laser hair removal treatment session, you don’t get a scar. However, there may be some scarring if the treatment is done incorrectly but they will disappear with each session. Yet, to avoid any other skin reaction, you must find a good laser hair removal company like ours that can handle your skin with care.

6. Infection

Though this is a rare side effect, certain people might experience certain kinds of rashes or skin infections after getting laser hair removal treatment done for the first time. This typically happens if you have extremely sensitive skin. However, makeO skin(formely skinnsi) laser hair removal treatment is known to be suitable for even people who have sensitive skin.

Is Laser Hair Removal Treatment Painful?

Well, it is one of the most common questions people often think about before undergoing laser hair removal treatment. As opposed to the pain you suffer during threading or waxing, you don’t suffer any pain during our laser hair removal treatment. It is a painless procedure.

The Final Verdict

The bottom line is that just like any other hair removal method, laser hair removal treatments too come with their fair share of potential side effects and risks. However, you must keep in mind that most of these side effects are temporary and mild. To be extra cautious, we recommend you always discuss your skin concerns with the professionals before you start your laser hair removal treatment.
