Common Questions and Answers about Laser hair removal results


Avatar f tn Hello, Soprano XL laser is considered one of the best techniques for laser hair removal of the armpit hair. Soprano XL is useful for everyone; both dark hair and light hair individuals and is painless and can used for large skin area like chest, armpits. I suggest you to discuss this with your doctor and then get it evaluated. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 Hello, It is very less likely for the laser rays to affect the ovaries and other reproductive organs and cause infertility. You should get it done from a good cosmetologist. 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 Dr., When I choose a place to perform my laser surgery for hair removal what should I look for as far as procedure/equipment? Some offices use different types of lasers and some use a carbonite "salve" to be applied beforehand to help "tag" the hairs and then again some do not. How is anyone to know what the differences are and which ones are better?
Avatar n tn Hi Doctor, I am a 27 year old caucasian male, and I am very close to scheduling a 4-session laser hair removal appointment to get the hair taken off my back and shoulders. I am a good candidate, as I have light skin and dark, coarse hair. The only thing really concerning me at this point is the potential long-term side effects - in particular, the possibility of the treatment causing skin cancer down the road.
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 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 n tn Some stubborn cases of folliculitis have been responsive to laser-assisted hair removal. This process uses a laser to destroy the follicle. This reduces the scarring that results from folliculitis. The steroid injections cause the keloid to become atrophic, or thinner, and are repeated every three to four weeks until the keloid has been resolved to the individual's satisfaction. Other therapies include laser treatment or radiation therapy, and topical treatments are undergoing study.
Avatar n tn Hello, Laser hair removal is permanent form of hair removal and unfortunately it cannot be reversed. You will have to get sessions of laser hair removal to get this patch of hair on the chin removed. 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.

Avatar f tn Hi, I'm sorry to post this question for a second time, but I now realize that my first post was worded so that no one would know what I was talking about. Has anyone had laser hair removal with negative results? Thank you.
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 .
Avatar n tn Rockoff, I am an older primary care physician who has been exclusively practicing primary skin care for five years. I do laser hair removal, photofacial rejuvenation, Acne care, and a number of other primary skin care services. I have a good relationship with the areas Dermatologists and create many referrals for them. At present I am using the Clearlight from Lumenis to treat Acne. My experience with the light suggests it has been oversold and hyped by the company.
Avatar f tn 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???? I should mention that I have also been on Estrostep (birth control) and that has not assisted in any way.
Avatar m tn There are hot waxes and many many things a woman can do for facial hair removal....including laser type stuff it think. Another thought is I wonder if her hormones have changed? Ill google it and see what it says...Also if it was clinical trial, gone bust? you might contact them and see if they can find out if it is hormonal or fix it.
Avatar n tn I wanted to know what treatment is more recommended by doctors for hair removal: laser or IPL? Also- is it possible performing any of them during pregnancy?
Avatar m tn Try to shave in the direction of hair growth . You can resort to other methods also like waxing or laser hair removal. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
