Common Questions and Answers about Hair laser removal treatment

laser

Avatar n tn Laser hair removal is a misnomer. It should be termed laser hair reduction. Multiple treatments are necessary because the treatment is only effective when the hair follicles are at a certain growth stage, and only a per cent of hairs in the treated area can be effectively eliminated at the time of laser therapy. You will obviously require additional treatment, but do not expect 100% reduction in hair growth.

Avatar m tn Hello, Light sheet duet laser is one the most advances and commonly used techniques for hair removal. As with any laser treatment the side effects accompanying are there like redness, burning, superficial burns or hypopigmented patches. So please discuss it in detail with your dermatologist before going in for this procedure. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn Hello, What you are having is irritated hair follicles and dermatitis after the laser treatment. Although a side effect of laser hair removal, it also means that the hair follicles have swelled from treatment. You should continue using the steroid cream and also moisturize the skin properly. But take care to use it in the proper amounts and schedule.

Avatar f tn I do not want to explain to her why mommy is in there. I had my first Laser Hair Removal Treatment on the 27th of June, next appointment is August 2nd and this time they will use numbing cream!!! I'm worried that this will be ongoing for the rest of my life because of the PCOS. My question is has anyone gone through these treatments and if so what was your success do you still do touch ups?
Avatar f tn Also, this was the first treatment. Will hair grow back in these spots that have no hair. After this first laser treatment, my husbands face was full of scabs and was swollen (it looked like he had his wisdom teeth pulled out). We have been to two Dermatologists and both say they think he will be fine, but we are afraid they are not telling us everything. Was this a normal reaction for this type of procedure? The swelling and scabs?
Avatar n tn Er, this sounds like an old wives tale to me! I've had laser treatment for hair removal and while it works a bit it isnt necessarily permanent like they say. Don't get your hopes up and look up different laser machines on WHICH? website. It pays to do your homework and also wait for whatever company you choose to be offering a discount. I personally have learnt to live with my body hair and my husband is fine with that. I would still do my face though as that is hard to cope with.

Avatar f tn Hi, I recently received 1st and 2nd degree burns on my legs from laser hair removal. At first they were darkened scabs over the area now the scabs have fallen off and I am left with white track like marks all over my legs. I am very worried about scarring. I have very dark tanned skin but I have made sure to stay out of the sun and keep the areas covered. It has been three weeks now.
Avatar n tn Hey doctor. Well I've gone a Laser Skin Removal center to remove a bit of moustache hair I've had and well, the amount of hair has lessened but I left my upper lip skin a paler color than my face. Do you have any idea what happen and how i can return to my normal skin color? I would really appreciate it.
Avatar f tn I had laser hair removal 4 days ago. Just today i woke up and had puss balls(not sure what to call them) all over my chin and area of treatment. I dont know how to treat it other than wash my face twice a day. My face is also drying up. Can someone please help me. What can i do to help heal this faster?
Avatar f tn To be extra cautious you should decline any numbing cream prior to your treatment. Laser hair removal works by a process called selective photothermolysis. That means that the laser light is used to heat up and selectively destroy the hair follicles on the skin. Certainly, the light spectrum can be absorbed by the hair follicles and also the skin. So, there's no chance that this can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
Avatar f tn I decided to receive laser hair removal on my face about a year and a half ago. The technician said that if I shaved I would get better results. Now I have all the little indentions as well as little while bumps from shaving my upper lip. They are extremely noticable, they told me they will go away with time and microdermabrasion. It has been some time and I have received about 8 microdermabrasion treatments.
Avatar f tn The reasoning is because there are no studies done to show the effects laser hair removal has on the baby. Since there are no studies, we don't know if it is okay or not so most companies (ones that care about your well being) would refuse treatments.
Avatar n tn even my hubbie, he has never said anything to me about it but when we are getting it on I have to be very carfeul not to let him touch my face.. So enough is enough I am ready for laser hair removal. Does anyone know how much it might cost to have this done and how often do you have to go in for the "treatment"?

Avatar f tn Hi I'm 25 years old, 6 weeks pregnant and was wondering of getting hair removal via laser on my upper lip. Is that harmful?
Avatar f tn I hope to get a laser treatment for my unwanted hair but I'm confused that some of my friends are saying not to do that because it may cause skin cancers lately and it's not good that your sweat glands and sebaceous glands will get damage etc. Can someone help me give me a clear answer whether these facts are correct or not??? Thanks.

Avatar f tn Will it be safe if i try to conceive within 3 days after i do a laser hair removal treatment? I read a lot about best avoiding it during pregnancy to be on the safe side but didn't find anything saying if it is safe few days prior to conception. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I am on 200mg lamictal per day as well as methylphenidate (ritalin). I got laser hair removal on my face. It was a very positive experience. No seizures (my diagnosis is JME and I get grand mals) whatsoever and no photosensitive reactions. Hope this helps you in your decision. I think it's well worth it!
Avatar f tn I had laser hair removal of underarms on 2/27--went off without a hitch. On 2/29, underarms began itching--no rashes noted. On 3/1, I developed a VERY itchy, red, puffy, warm/hot rash to left armpit, by the evening, it began popping up in my right armpit. on 3/3, I called cosmetic center-->MD suspected "laser burn" and wanted to eval. Doc said it was an "infection", was given topical ointment for itch & oral antibiotics.
Avatar f tn HI There, I had laser hair removal treatment carried out on my legs, underarms and bikini area 4 days ago. Whilst my underarms and bikini are healing well, I have broken out in an "acne" type rash which is itchy on my legs. I have been taking a piriton at night and piriteze during the day and also using sudocrem on my skin. Is there anything else that I can do to alleviate the itch, speed up the healing and prevent any scarring?
Avatar m tn My mum and I have been recently getting laser hair removal done every 4-6 weeks. We are both on our 6th or so session. Both of us have responded well and nothing bad has happened. However, yesterday my mum went for her session and she came back with a lot of redness. She gets her neck, chin, cheeks and upper lip done and everything was very noticeably red. This has never happened before. There might be a little bit of redness/itchiness/soreness afterwards, but not to this extent.
