Laser hair removal legs

Common Questions and Answers about Laser hair removal legs


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 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 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 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 n tn I has laser hair removal July 17 2009 on my legs and was left with hypopigmentation. I want to know what I can do I have been so stressed. Please help me they are shaped like half circles all over the back, side and front of my legs.
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 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.
Avatar f tn I had my first session of laser hair removal for lower legs yesterday and after a few hours my legs started itching. The itch was so bad that I couldn't help not to scratch them and today I noticed red spots all over my lower legs. The red spots look like rash and are itchy. I'm worried that the laser might have burned my skin. Dose anybody knows if this is normal or I should stop laser hair removal treatment?
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 n tn I started laser hair removal on my lower legs (half leg). I have quite a few small brown moles there. They are a couple of mm. Now, a couple of weeks after the first treatment, I noticed that several of these tiny moles became very dark, almost black, and their shape is not round. They are still very small, I don't thing they grew. Is this dangerous? Should I run to a dermatologist and avoid any future treatments? Or is this normal and safe?
Avatar n tn Hello everyone, i got a hair laser removal i got burnt both legs now it's healed dark brown some are pinkish. is my skin will go normal after the post laser burns? please advice because it's really frustrating.
Avatar n tn You really need to stop tweezing right away, or else inflammation and pigmentation will make you very unhappy next carnival. If you can't afford laser hair removal, you can try waxing (which sometimes causes a bit of ingrown hair problems),or else shaving. Contrary to what people say, shaving does not make hair grow back thicker. Also, it doesn't yank hair out by the roots, so it doesn't leave inflamed spots and resulting pigmentation. Good luck. Dr.
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 Is there anything i can do to get rid of the hair beside laser hair removal? and if it is, is the procedure safe? any side effects? Or is there something i can use to make pores smaller and remove the hair, maybe a cream or ointment? Im just a college student and i want to avoid spending 1000 for laser hair removal, and not it's not just a problem of ugly legs, it's a problem of red, irriated, ugly legs with LOTS OF SHORT HAIR and HUGE pores. I really appreciate any help.
Avatar f tn A mild corticosteroid cream like dermacort will also help. Also you can go in for laser hair removal which causes permanent reduction of hair and does not cause folliculitis also. 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 m tn Thanks to modern technologies women need no longer suffer the periodic pain of hair removal by shaving, tweezing or waxing. Laser hair removal is a fast, relatively painless process that guarantees near permanent results. If you are bothered by hair on legs, arms and your body then laser hair removal in Delhi is both quick and affordable. The process is carried out by a trained and expert cosmetic surgeons using state of art laser equipment.
Avatar n tn I am interested in laser hair removal, but have read a lot where it is not permanent and hair can regrow in lighter so when you go to get the removal done again it's not effective due to the color of the hair. My menstrual cycle is very unpredictable. Most of the time it is very light and lasts a couple days to lasting a month and very heavy. My hair is thinning on my head. On my legs you can see my pores. Looks like chicken skin.
Avatar f tn As for hair removal I have stopped shaving completely . When I was going for my laser hair removal treatments it seemed to spread them . So I have taken a break from that . I have started using Nair only when absolutely necessary , with the hair removal creams you have to rub or scrape the hair off it definitely irritates them and pop up smaller warts . Definitely frustrating .
1312383 tn?1296761211 You can also take some over the counter anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen after waxing. However, the best method of painless hair removal is by laser treatment. I would advise you to consult a dermatologist/cosmetologist and discuss this option with him. 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 dermatologist.
Avatar f tn Due to the continued irritation even after changing methods and products, I think that the likely cause of your condition may be due to dry skin or eczema and probably sensitive skin to top all that off. I agree with the previous comment about laser hair removal, as the itching is probably due to the hairs pricking against your skin as it grows out.

Avatar f tn The initial complaint that I brought to my doctor was experiencing hair growth on my face, excess hair growth on my arms/legs/bikini, and hair loss on my head. I've since begun laser hair removal on my face and arms, but I am about 4 treatments in (24 wks) and am not noticing results. It is becoming more and more difficult to hold my head high- many days I don't even want to be seen in public. Are there hormonal therapies/treatments that I can look into to assist with the hair growth/loss???
882555 tn?1240596244 I think shaving, showers or anything else that would upset your skins normal conditions just cause a minor irritation that is really itchy. I am really interested in laser hair removal because I believe shaving is the main issue... for me anyways. Has anyone tried this? Do guys have this itchy leg thing?
Avatar f tn A mild corticosteroid cream will also help. Also you can go in for laser hair removal which causes permanent reduction of hair and does not cause folliculitis also. Please consult a good cosmetologist/dermatologist for that. 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 dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn I have been to the dermatologist’s various time for the same problem, but they always suggest me to go for laser hair removal, which is very expensive and i don't want to take that option. So i finally searched a lot about ingrown hair over internet and found that salicylic acid and Glycolic Acid lotions/creams can help a lot.
Avatar f tn I hate shaving, I wax my legs and underarms but don't know what to do about the vaginal area. I hate shaving down there, I can't stand the itching and I'm paranoid about th hairs getting thicker if I shave them! I could never get a wax because I'd be too embarrassed! What should I do? Also if women do shave their vagina what do they do about their bum hair at th back?
Avatar n tn I decided it must have something to do with shaving and so, at the age of 50, I have started to have laser hair removal on my lower legs. Low and behold, it seems to be working. I rarely have the itching anymore. And usually, it is just before my next session. And the shaving that used to make the itching worse, doesn't anymore! It is expensive but totally worth it if it makes that doggone itching stop.
Avatar f tn If you really are seeking for a long-term or permanent process, you could always look into laser removal. Just be careful because there is always the chance of something going wrong. My cousin used to shave her arms until the hair on top became super thick and she just wanted to get rid of it. She went in for laser surgery and they burned her skin - now she has a horrible white scar on the top of her arm.
