Avatar n tn Hey doctor. Well I've gone a Laser Skin Removal center to remove a bit of moustache hair I've had and well, the amount of hair has lessened but I left my upper lip skin a paler color than my face. Do you have any idea what happen and how i can return to my normal skin color? I would really appreciate it.
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 f tn Hi everyone, I wrote a few days ago about my husbands problems with his laser hair removal. Well we noticed that around one side of his lip where the folliculitis was the worst he has like a little knot under the skin. You can tell it is protruding just a little more than the other side of his mouth. It is not at all sore or warm to touch. Could this just be where he is healing and the fibrous tissue or whatever it is called has just formed a bundle under the skin?
Avatar f tn I am currently choosing to try to apply ginger because i read someone had success applying it to skin and bringing back color. I had some say sun exposure and sun screening the regular skin helped? I also read something about needling? Can I see before and after photos too of possible? I can't let summer come and have these be visible!!!! It's so bad Thank you!!!!!!
Avatar n tn The clinician has expressed surprise at the evidently strange way my skin reacts to the laser treatment. First, mild but unremarkable redness. Then after about two days I experience an incredibly prolific outbreak of tiny whiteheads on my face and neck. After the whiteheads go away (I have to shave for work, unfortunately), my skin takes on a very coarse texture. Eventually, my skin reverts more or less to normal, except for the blotchy appearance of my beard, which is to be expected.
Avatar f tn If you can't get a tattoo while pregnant, you can't get tattoo removal either....I thinjk tattoo removal is even worse than getting the tattoo itself!
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 I just had my first laser removal treatment--how long to see results? Anything I should be doing to help my body absorb the ink (e.g. push water)?

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 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 n tn I had a laser mole removal done on my face to two moles, one is somewhat large and brownish, flat. and the other was smaller, black and protuding. This laser procedure was done about 2-3 months ago and it is still red and discolored. the scab fell off in 2-3 weeks after the laser procedure, and I have put sunblock on and even massaged it yet it is still red. when will the redness go away? the larger flat brownish was is slightly indented as well.
Avatar f tn I had laser hair removal 4 days ago. Just today i woke up and had puss balls(not sure what to call them) all over my chin and area of treatment. I dont know how to treat it other than wash my face twice a day. My face is also drying up. Can someone please help me. What can i do to help heal this faster?
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 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 m tn If I wanted to do laser hair removal, how many sessions would I have to do just for one area, or would it take only one?
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 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 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 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 I am in my mid 30's. I have tried laser for hair removal about 4 times over the past 10 years. Each time I have been for between 10-20 sessions. I still have hair, in fact it seems to have got thicker. In addition to this my skin has aged very badly, my skin seems very thin and I have some sagging and wrinkles. And now in my 30's have started getting acne again. Do you think all the different types of laser I have tried has caused my skin to thin?
Avatar n tn I have used TCA, glycolic peels, hydroquinone, tretioin, kojic, bit nothing has reduced it. Recently i heard that yag laser can be used for depigmenting skin by destroying melanin cells itself, and in a way cause hypopigmentation in these regions. Can I do this. Please advice the type of laser, etc.
Avatar f tn Will it be safe if i try to conceive within 3 days after i do a laser hair removal treatment? I read a lot about best avoiding it during pregnancy to be on the safe side but didn't find anything saying if it is safe few days prior to conception. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Hi, Hyperpigmentation Removal treatments are used to eradicate darkened areas of the skin which may result from hormones, sun damage, injuries, skin-type characteristics, medications and more. Hyperpigmentation lesions can be anything from melasma/cholasma often attributed to pregnancy or hormonal imbalances to freckles. The first step is consulting with a qualified surgeon or dermatologist to determine the cause and then go over your options for a solution.
