280369 tn?1316705641 Thanks! I am going to keep looking into it. I have heard it's not always painless...yikes!! and then several visits as well seems like a lot. Not sure if it's worth it and all. I am going to look at other options first and then make a final decision. It's scary though and I don't want to make a bad decision and then be stuck with something for the rest of my life!! Thanks aussie...I will look into those!
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 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 got burn while taking treatment for Laser hair removal...they have discoloration and one blistering which popped...does they leave permanent scar or its curable...what medication and care to be taken (moisturiser??
Avatar m 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. 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.

Avatar n tn Non-ionizing radiation means energy that doesn't break DNA bonds. Cancer is not an issue, period. Laser hair removal is usually not permanent, as any ethical practitioner will tell you. You may well grow hair down the line, which may reach the point where you'll want to touch it up from time to time. Still, most patients are quite happy with the results. Take care. Dr.
Avatar m tn I am not a doctor but I am really hoping to get some responses regarding potential eye damage when being treated with the Palomar Starlux laser for hair removal. I will try to keep this short. Today I was being treated with this Laser and was wearing goggles to protect my eye. The opthamologist assisted was lasering an area on my stomach. She asked me a question about what area I wanted to have treated.
Avatar f tn I have a 40 year old friend with similar coloring (pretty fair complexion and curly, dark thick hair). She had one laser hair removal treatment at the same spa which has resulted in the same defined dark discoloration on the upper lip after sun exposure. I have read if the incorrect setting or laser type is used for a patient's skin tone and hair type it can cause hyperpigmentation. I think this is supposed to be a temporary side effect; not long lasting.
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.
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 f tn i don't like hair removal. my friend ones did laser treatment and she got burns after. it hurts really bad. so, we did was just to wax it. because the more you wax your hair, the less your hair grows back. after how many times you wax, the hair won't grow anymore.

Laser hair removal is safe and you can get it done from a good cosmetologist.
Avatar n tn For better or worse, laser hair removal is not always permanent--hair often grows back, and most of the time the hair comes in the same color as before, if not necessarily the same thickness. I have not seen hair come in white as a result of laser hair removal. I suspect that the hair looks lighter because it's thinner. In time it is likely to look even with your other hair.

Avatar f tn 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. Laser treatment causes post inflammatory hypopigmentation, hence it is advisable to discuss the pros and cons with your dermatologist before going in for this.

Avatar n tn Dr., I noticed you have mentioned Laser surgery as an option for hair removal. I understand it will not be permanent in everyone's case, but is it permanent destruction of a hair follicle in most cases?
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.

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 Unfortunately over the past few years I paid quite a lot of money for laser hair removal (which is supposed to be permanent! ) but since getting pregnant I'm back to shaving every 2nd day :( not happy with my hormones!
Avatar n tn If facial hair is a problem you could look into permanent removal at a laser clinic, or go on an anti-androgen contraceptive pill like Dianette (called Diane35 in some countries).
Avatar n tn Hello, Laser treatment only slows down the production of hair growth. Permanent hair removal is not possible. Lasers actually ensure a temporary complete hair removal. Generally, there is re-growth after 6 months (though it is sparser than the initial growth) and one must undergo additional therapy. So please discuss it with your dermatologist and also get evaluated for the other causes of hair growth like endocrine disorders and polycystic ovarian disease by consulting an endocrinologist.
