Avatar f tn Hello, I am 36, I recently had laser hair removal on my face. I got the full beard done with great results. At first I didn't see a whole lot of difference, but I had microderm abrasion done one week later to open up my pores. Now when i use a razor to shave all the hair that was lasered just comes right off with the razor. You can tell its dead hair because it doesn't pull the skin from the razor. 3 weeks later, my face is very smooth! I only had one treatment.
Avatar n tn We are contemplating getting laser hair removal. We heard that getting laser done close to an opening on the body like navel, vagina, etc. there is a possibility of infertility. Is it true ?
Avatar n tn Hello, There are various methods like shaving,bleaching,depilatory creams,electrolysis or laser hair removal are available to remove the hair.Out of all these laser hair removal is the most long lasting.Nd YAG laser is very effective in long term reduction of hair.Risks include the chance of burning the skin or discoloring dark skin with the laser, hypopigmentation (white spots), and flare of acne. Pls consult a dermatologist/cosmetologist and discuss this with him/her. Hope it helps.
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 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 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 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 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"?
280369 tn?1316705641 hi chantal21, i also looked into laser hair removal, mainly for my belly and bikini line. i do not have a lot of body hair, but those two places really bother me. i did not end up pursuing it after i learned that you have to receive regular treatments to ensure that the hair is removed, and even then there is no guarantee that the hair will not return. talk about frustrating! each visit can cost up to $200 depending on where and how much hair you need removed.
Avatar f tn Has anyone tried out laser hair removal? on face or legs? I've heard its not only expensive but it also can leave a darker tone on the area treated...any insight about it???
Avatar f tn My husband had laser hair removal about two weeks ago to his beard. He developed folliculitis. The folliculitis is now cleared up and the hair on his beard is very patchy. The skin under the hair seems to be lighter than the skin that has no hair. Is this b/c the skin without hair is still healing and will blend in eventually or is it going to stay this way. Also, this was the first treatment. Will hair grow back in these spots that have no hair.
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 Okay, this is really embarassing. I'm starting my first session of laser hair removal this weekend. I've never had it done, but as I'm very hairy, it's about time!!! ha ha! Has anyone had it before? And is it really effective? I have dark hair, so suppsedly I'm like the best candidate. The techs have been very adament about saying that they're not allowed to call it permanent, but they say that they're confident I'll love the results. All I really care about are the dark, nasty man hairs.
1276755 tn?1271021491 Hello, Laser hair removal is permanent form of hair removal and unfortunately it cannot be reversed. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I dread getting up in the morning because it's so exhausting. I can't afford laser hair removal, so can anyone suggest a hair removal, bleach, makeup, ANYTHING that actually works and gets rid of some of the shadow?
Avatar n tn Hello, There are 5 types of laser hair removal systems. These include pulsed light, Nd YAG laser, diode laser. Alexanderite laser and ruby laser. This depends on the skin type and varies from patient to patient. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist for the skin type and then depending on that, laser hair removal can be decided.
Avatar f tn My derm advised me to seek laser hair removal, but now I am worried that laser hair removal will just make matters worse, which I just cannot handle. He said that laser hair removal is superior to electrolysis, but stories like this tell otherwise. I read that IPL damages darker skin tones because it does not do a good job in differentiating melanin in hair follicles and melanin in skin, so it damages the surrounding skin. Did all of you ladies have IPL performed on your skin?
Avatar n tn I was burned on July 17 after laser hair removal. It later peeled and I was left with white hypopigmentation marks. It has been three months and I have not seen any changes. Please let me know if this is permanent or if there is any treatment for this.
Avatar n tn I think you made a wise choice to have laser removal of your beard hair, since that technique is perhaps the only way to eliminate your shaving problems. Some patients, regardless of skin type, do take quite a number of sessions to achieve clearing. I can't explain the little whiteheads. Your suggestion--the heat of the laser--sounds as reasonable as any. In any case, that is temporary. As to the bump induced by picking, that too is independent of skin coloring.
11358238 tn?1430413563 I'm growing hair like crazy on my face. I used to do laser Hair removal before I found out I was pregnant. Now I can't do them anymore till after the baby. I did wax my face and now have ingrown hairs on my neck. I exfoliate daily and don't know what to do. Anyone experiencing this problem? I need Help I love my baby, I need this hair gone. Has anyone done laser while pregnant?
1178131 tn?1282658419 Since every month my Aunt shows w/o fail, with her ugly face, and understandably shatters me, making me think this will never happen etc, (I am getting into this routine every month LOL) I wanted to concentrate on few things that I had been putting off because of possible pregnancy, which btw doesn't seem to happen anytime, GRRRR anyway, on of which is facial hair removal. Did you ladies hear from any docs if it is harmless to do some electrolysis or Laser?
Avatar n tn I had laser hair removal -- at Hair Today Gone Tommorrow. It was NOT painful, it just left redness right afterwards that lasted an hour or so. Most places will give you a free consultation and let you 'feel' the laser by giving you a pulse on your hand or face. It works best on those with fair skin and dark hair. It will not take away light or white hair -- so not good for peach fuzz. The hair has not come back and I stopped treatments 3 years ago.
Avatar n tn Hello, Legs are the best place for laser hair removal. Within 3 treatments you will achieve smooth, ingrown free legs and at least 50 percent of hair reduction will be achieved. The first 3 treatments may have to be 6 to 8 weeks apart usually but best way to estimate your treatment dates is to observe the new hair growth. The subsequent treatment is usually 4 to 6 weeks after the previous treatment. When you start to see new stubble (new hair growth), you can make an appointment within the week.
Avatar f tn I used a hair removal cream on my face more than a year ago. After i used the cream, i got a serious reaction from it. some of my skin peeled and burned. From the peeling and burning, it has left dark brown marks on my face which i cannot get rid of. I have tried products like bio oil and a skin lightening cream, but these have not been effective. I get breakouts on my skin very often and i have acne and rosacea. My skin used to be completely clear before i used the hair removal cream.
Avatar m tn Drugs like androgen receptor blockers, androgen suppressing agents and 5 alpha reductase inhibitors are also used. Permanent means of hair removal by electrolysis and laser treatment are also useful. I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist and discuss all the pros and cons of these methods so that the best treatment for you can be decided.
706214 tn?1244526649 Laser hair removal, expensive but the only thing that works permanently, even if you cant change your diet or lifestyle on your own!
Avatar f tn Laser hair removal on the face is cheap and easy these days, I did it for my eyebrow area/unibrow.
