Laser hair removal under chin

Common Questions and Answers about Laser hair removal under chin


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 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 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 There is laser hair removal...a girl I work with had her lip done and loves it. I havent heard anyone complain about the laser hair removal. Usually you go in for a couple treatments and either the hair is very light and unnoticable or theres none at all. As for the pimples you should see a dermatologist. I went to one when I was a teenager and they gave me Retin-A and minocyline and it cleared my face up. Cetaphil is also a very good cleanser and I use it everyday.
Avatar n tn Two days ago I had laser hair removal on my arms and hands, done by my dermatologist. I have had my chin/upper lip done numerous times so I am very familiar with the procedure and have been able to tolerate the pain. However, on one spot under my little and ring fingers on the back of my hand I experienced the most excruciating pain which lasted for several long seconds. Now I am experiencing puffiness and a slight pain/ache.
Avatar f tn it more feels like a burning sensation when i touch it. my chin is extremely numb..the numbest part is right under my bottom lip on my chin in one patch. this ***** so bad. im taking vitamin b6 pills crushed up and also cant eat real solid foodds bc of the tongue issue. this is seriously depressing. your improvement gives me hope! maybe i should try the vitamin b liquid too? lol im taking pills..but i dunno what the difference would be. i havent found anyone who has my symptoms around here..
Avatar n tn My upper lip tends to sweat The hair on my upper lip and chin is very coarse/inflexible I Have Keratosis Pilaris on my upper arms & legs and I have mild Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii More than likely I have Trichostasis Spinulosa on my nose
743543 tn?1268766823 I went through laser hair removal about two years ago and my under arm hair has decided to grow back this pregnancy. I really hope it's not permanant and will stop again when I have my little angel. Unwanted hair is a pain but really nothing you can do but shave wax pluck to get rid of it.
Avatar n tn hi everyone, i have these whitehead like pimples on the area right below the lower lip, not on it, but the area under the lip. you cant really see it if you stretch the area out, but theyve been there for about 5 or 6 years now...every morning theyre there, whether i popped them or not. please help me, its been getting really annoying and making me worried. thank you.
Avatar f tn I was finally diagonsed with PCOS about 2 months ago. I have been on Metformin for 2 months and Sipro for about 3 weeks. The day before yesterday I noticed that the hair on my chin is clear/blonde, its still there, but its not black like usually. I am not sure which medicine helped, or maybe it was a combination, I'm just glad its helping..maybe you should talk with your doctor about it, he/she may recommend a totally different med or combo of meds.
Avatar f tn from the past 1 yr i have been experiencing alot of hair growth all over my body.i have facial hair and the hair on and under my chin(area just above neck) can get as long as 1 inch.they grow back really quickly,and they're very think too.they're hair as long as 1 inch on my abdomen too.i dont seem to loose weight i'm appetite is quite low.i'm always tired from the past few months dont even have energy to exercise.
Avatar f tn I'm saving up for laser hair removal but it's going to take me about a year to get to that point. It's so expensive! Hopefully though, it will be worth it.
Avatar n tn I was very self conscious about it growing up- for I couldn't find anything about girls with nipple hair. I actually had laser hair removal when I was 16, but it has all grown back which is unfortunate because it cost a lot! I still pluck when their long enough, but they do become ingrown and I end up having some scarring as well. My boyfriend never even noticed when we first got together, I couldn't believe it. It goes to show that men miss detail. It was a huge relief for me.
4330487 tn?1352908549 I'm sorry I'm not qualified to give you a range of credible alternatives. But what does come to mind is laser hair removal. Those with light skin and dark hair are the best candidates for laser hair removal. I have PCOS, too, but I am the opposite...almost hairless. But, in the ways many women would like permanent hair removal, I do too. But since I have very fair skin and blond hair, I'm not a candidate for laser hair removal. Although expensive, that would be a permanent solution.
Avatar n tn cheeks, sides, chin and neck as a result of Laser Hair removal procedures. My race is Black American. I am experiencing the following symptoms: a) Skin is burnt and damaged; b) External skin appears bumpy and uneven; c) Swelling and puss formation in numerous areas; d) Patches of hard, crusted and irritated skin; e) Under skin, some areas are not smooth and feel bumpy or inflamed.
Avatar n tn After taking the accutane, i noticed i started growing alot of facial hair, and now i have extremely thick facial hair all over my face and neck. I've had laser hair removal done on my neck (about 12 sessions), and even though some of the hair in my neck areas has been removed, i still need to shave the area and I still get razor bumps/ingrown hairs.
Avatar n tn i have the same hair problems, stomach and chin to neck. i've been doing laser treatments, however, i also have had little to no change. acne is a problem as well. i am slightly over weight and hope that losing will improve my hair problems. i shave, which may have contributed but it's better then walking around with a beard, right? waxing or tweezing only causes ingrown hairs. sorry for not giving medical advice. but your not alone.
Avatar n tn I believe it must have happened when they first shaved my face (standard procedure for laser hair removal)- yet the shaving opened all the little acne bumps and must have allowed it to spread. Someone mentioned diabetes and menstral cycle problems. I have very irregular periods and have been diagnosed with " PCOS " (a pre-diabetic stage). I know my facial hair is rooted to this problem, yet I do not know how to fix it.
Avatar n tn But I too cannot wait till I can afford laser hair removal.
Avatar n tn Okay - The fact is that genital herpes creates a completely different kind of sore -- a blister-type sore that eventually becomes crusty -- not just a bump or lump under the skin. ---- I am assuming that you are talking about cysts here.... If it is a bump or lump thats under the skin, it is more than likely just a cyst. People are known to have cystic acne that may require harsh treatment like accutane.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
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 m tn Since the majority of it is cleared and under control, i am strongly considering permanent hair removal as i've been told, it will reduce the chances of the infection rising again. My question: If the hair in the problematic areas are removed (thus removing the need to shave) and I continue facial hygienic maintenance for the long run (not giving my skin any excuse to develop infection again), is there a chance of the infection returning? if there is, is it a high chance?
Avatar n tn Hi! Well, excess body hair or hirsutism can occur at any age and is more common in women. In males it is difficult to recognize as men have more body hair than women If you are a male, then it could be a normal finding. Some men are more hairy than others. If you feel they are abnormal, then you can consult a doctor to rule out adrenal gland problems. One of the most common causes is adrenal cortical tumors, which are often malignant.
Avatar f tn 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 n tn Finally, you might look into laser hair removal. A few treatments may thin your hair sufficiently so you'll need to shave less often, and the remaining hairs will be thinner and less likely to curl up under the skin and cause inflammation. Take care. Dr.
Avatar n tn The excess hair on the face can be reduced by the laser hair removal...however, I do not think any insurance will cover the cost of it seeing they have it listed under "cosmetic". I've heard of hair removal creams I think it's called Vanic (sp?). That can be given by a dermotolgist. Metformin should help, it's one of the most common given medications for those who have PCOS. I take that along with Yasmin bc.
Avatar n tn shtml 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. Let us know if you need any other information and consult a skin specialist if the lesion is persistent. Regards.
