Common Questions and Answers about Laser hair removal facts


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 The most common side effects of laser hair removal are skin irritation, pigment changes etc. Rarer side effects are blistering, crusting or scarring. It is best to take the decision regarding laser treatment after consulting your dermatologist. Do keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn Hello, Laser treatment is not without side effects and may cause hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, redness and erythema. Laser hair removal would require multiple sittings depending upon the area where the laser hair reduction is to be done. You should consult a good dermatologist and discuss the pros and cons with him. Most patients need a minimum of seven treatments.
162948 tn?1205256292 I had the mirena in for about 13 months & had it removed end of august to try to get pregnant. I had thought it was more immediate. I found out it can take 3-6 months for your cycle to return. my husband and I are pretty bummed because we would have removed it earlier (or never had it put in). Anyway, I bled a few days after removal (probably due to the removal) & then nothing until a couple days of brown spotting at the beginning of this month.
Avatar n tn Can I have contracted the virus from non-sex contact (literature is somewhat disjointed) such as laser hair removal, biking or gym equipment? I am seeking facts and probabilities (sex partner, non-sex partners, other). Basic question - is high risk HPV types caused only by sexual transmission? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I get it all time and really have to exfoliate a lot, there are red dots that usually itch and are inflammed. I think laser hair removal is the only option to reduce the hair, but that is expensive and I doubt there are many studies that allow you to get it for free. I still am learning about this and am I trying to find anyone that has a similar condition to mine, but no luck and from all the observing and locker rooms I have been and travels. I have never found anyone with the same thing.
Avatar m tn I do get laser hair removal for all of my public hair (although i've not been back in months) but it almost reminds me of the laser shock. When I urinated yesterday it also burned slightly. Yesterday I also had white discharge on vagina that looks sorta like the yeast infections. today, lesser so. But today again, I'm having htis burning/stinging on and off. I examined myself with a mirror and see NO blisters or sores in area where its coming from... maybe just redness, possibly me probing.
140437 tn?1215113342 Adjusting the hormones helps with the hair but laser hair removal is MUCH more immediate and much better.
Avatar n tn When I revealed my HCV status to my laser hair removal nurse, she told me about several of her nurse colleagues who are HCV+ & are still working. Having the disease doesn't preclude one from working in the medical profession in ANY capacity; in fact, HCV patients are covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act & have a legal right to sue if they are fired for having the disease, from what I understand.
948349 tn?1294383837 This is what I am looking into next... I also believe that home laser hair removal kits will help you with your acne if your acne is causes by ingrown hairs. I'm going to be purchasing one within a month which is a bit steep in price at 500 dollars, but I think it's well worth it. I have ingrown hairs on my neck, and sometimes I also get acne on my neck. For men and shaving... avoid a close shave and shave in the direction of the hair follicles growth rather than against it.
Avatar f tn A rash has formed that NEVER seems to go away. (I also do laser hair removal and that could irritate it, BUT, I have never had such a swollen, red lip) The last bump hurt when I touched it, it throbbed, itched, burned, tingled, this has been going on for weeks now. I pierced the bump, blood came out. I squeezed the bump it became bigger but never forms as a cold sore. I itched it and then kind of touched my lip on the side, a new bump formed there that itched and swelled up. STILL no leakage.
Avatar f tn The other thing, too, which I can't help but think is related, is that I've been doing laser hair removal in my bikini line area. I noticed this bump a few days after my fourth treatment. I'm wondering if it's a side effect of that, or maybe if the laser could cause a genital wart outbreak and that's why I never had one before?! I have a book recommendation for you: "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About HPV and Abnormal Pap Smears" by Joel Palefsky, M.D. After my dr.
Avatar f tn I have tried laser hair removal on my back but it just grows back (possible sign of pcos?) • I think I have low blood sugar as I need to eat frequently or get weak and shaky. I don't have diabetes or any other related syndromes. • I am otherwise healthy, healthy diet, not much exercise. Please help me. I'm at a loss and just need some advice and other opinions. Thanks. BB Can anyone give me some advice based on these facts? I'm at a bit of a loss. Thanks.
363243 tn?1331037450 - hirsuitism (tried only several removal techniques; laser epilation gave satisfactory, though NOT permanent, results) - mild skin problems (tried mostly commercial products) - hair thinning and falling out (hair supplements, olive oil + castor oil homemade masks, massage; I got it cut rather short recently to strengthen the roots and hope to see good results in a few month time) - water retention, constipation, bloating, weight gain (specific diet and exercise) - depression (tough to deal wi
Avatar f tn they did a biopsy shortly after i did this post, and nothing specific came back. i've had it treated w/ medication (pills and topical) and also laser and it'll seem to look a little better for a few days but then i'm almost to square 1. it just will not seem to heal. just today they decided to do a second biopsy, because they also find it odd and worrisome. they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin.
Avatar n tn Regarding the hair loss, when I started going through menopause at age 47 I would find a hair ball in the shower. Lasted for a while and then stopped. I've read that hair loss can be attributed to a lack of estrogen. So not sure if you're at that age or not. Hair loss is also a symptom that some people with lupus deal with. I've had some estrogen issues just recently and have noticed my skin is a lot drier than usual, probably a result of the lowering estrogen.
1006035 tn?1485579497 There is supposed to be a new surgical method that is supposed to be less painful for recovery but it is very costly as it is a laser surgery. That being said we have two cats and they both are *not* declawed. However I'm not opposed to getting it done if they were to turn those claws on my children. I'm all for providing a loving, caring home for my pets but they my CHILDREN come first.
Avatar m tn It even states that taxidermists use them sometimes to get the hair off of animals. I can get my hair soft only briefly with olive oil or lavender lotion and lots of rubbing but then it is not more than an hour before starting from those bumps the hair gets all stiff and crunchy again. I am so scared. I already went through breast cancer and just want to be healthy. I am moving and hope things will be better but fear this infestation is on me!
720604 tn?1230853479 I told 2 healthcare professionals about my Hep C status: my dentist (via letter, since when I found out I was way between appointments) and my laser hair removal nurse. With my dentist, I see that they've added "HCV+" to my chart, but have never asked me anything about it. As with all my dentists out here (in Ca), regardless of the HCV thing, they ask you first thing if your health has changed in any way, and ask you to sign a release form.

Avatar n tn I want to get it covered up with another tattoo. I tried laser removal, and it seriously hurts more than childbirth so i never went back. i have been reading articles whether or not it was safe to get a tattoo while pregnant and i'm confused. Although there is no medical proof that getting a tattoo while pregnant is dangerous to the fetus, some articles say yes, others say no. What do you guys think?
Avatar n tn Don't get laser prostate surgery no matter what. You will never ejaculate normally again. I hate it and would rather get up 50 times a night than have this. It's not worth it.
Avatar f tn I found a book online called The Atlas of Craniomaxillofacial Osteosynthesis Its a medical book for sale and you can only see a couple pages, but from the index there was a whole chapter on plate removal due to immunologic response. Also.... Allergic reactions to metal implants: Influence of wear debris Properties of implant materials and particles.
Avatar n tn I wonder if laser hair removal is an option. At this point, I'd go for that if it would stop these painful lumps.
Avatar n tn - anxiety, panic attacks, heart palpitations and fluttering - depression - excessive weight gain - hair loss *I already have a prob. with depression, anxiety and panic attacks, so I am currently on medication. (Will be weaned off if not good during the pregnancy - just wanted you to know I am thinking it all through:) *It is one thing to gain maybe 5 lbs. or to gain weight when pregnant. I have been pregnant before and understand weight gain comes with this.
Avatar f tn made a boo-boo..Echinacea is a purple flower..not a tree! In Oregon it is a really popular plant as a roadside plant and in home gardens. Very hardy!
Avatar n tn Never let any ‘normal’ soaps, chemicals or solvents touch the hands - wear elastic/rubber gloves when in shower/bath (seal with tape around wrists), when applying things like hair products or after shave, and when doing the washing/cleaning. Wash hands in a dermatological chemical free handwash, and/or use special non-soap soaps.
Avatar n tn When these organs are removed through the belly button, a biopsy is impossible because the organs have been chopped (well not the best word) up into small pieces for removal. With a vaginal delivery, a biopsy can be proformed because these cervix, uterus and even ovaries can be removed pretty much intack.. I asked the same question, "what happens to my eggs that my ovaries release each month" and I was told they will be released and disinegrate.
Avatar f tn I read this on the Internet and it works for a few hours at a time for me, I use my hair dryer blowing hot air on then bites. Be careful not to burn yourself but it has relieved the itch for hours at a time.
Avatar n tn Keep badgering your doctor like I did and they might give you something stronger. I'd love to try the laser treatment or surgery, but I know those methods are only for extreme cases (or the rich kids!) I actually work in an STI clinic on reception (ironically!), and I can tell you now warts are the least problematic queries I have to deal with. It is a very tame STI with little to no health complications, compared to a lot of the other infections.
