Avatar f tn Hello, Pain, swelling, redness, red bumps and blistering are temporary side effects of laser hair removal which will improve with time. Apply calamine lotion to soothe the skin and if the symptoms are severe then mild steroid cream can be applied. However if there is any hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation or scarring then it needs an evaluation by a dermatologist as they are permanent side effects of this therapy.
Avatar f tn The most common side effects of laser hair removal are skin irritation, pigment changes etc. Rarer side effects are blistering, crusting or scarring. It is best to take the decision regarding laser treatment after consulting your dermatologist. Do keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn Ablative fractional lasers are quite effective for open pores and erbium laser can be done but it may take a week for recovery. However this laser causes fewer side effects -- such as swelling, bruising, and redness In my opinion you should discuss these treatment options with a cosmetologist/dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

Avatar m tn Hi everybody, Would anyone be so kind to share his/her knowledge on how the side effects of topical corticosteroids, namely that of swelling/edema in subcutaneous tissue, as well as dilation of superficial blood vessels(capillaries), develop. I have developed these side effects from usage of two different corticosteroids for different skin problems.
Avatar n tn Hello, Ruby laser is a good option for treatment of freckles, but it can cause various side effects like post inflammatory hyper or hypopigmentation, redness, crusting or bruising of the skin which may persist for some days after treatment. My sincere advice would be to discuss the pros and cons with your dermatologist before going in for the treatment. I hope it helps.

Avatar n tn I have experienced dry lips and other side effects but I still have just as much acne as before. I know someone who went on this drug with really bad nodular acne and they cleared up in a month. Why is it that it is not working for me, I am really discouraged. Is it possible that the drug could not work on certain people and am I now going to have to live with these scars? My doctor had said that it will get better that every patient he has had it cleared up there acne.
Avatar m tn Fatigue, fever, or nausea may occur after infusion and may last as long as 24 hours. Other side effects include, dizziness, leg cramps, muscle aches and pains and pain and tenderness at the injection site. A severe anaphylactic reaction may occur in patients who have a serious deficiency of IgA associated with anti-IgE or anti-IgG antibodies against IgA, which react with the IgA in the IGG preparation. The reaction is rare. Keep me informed about your condition. Bye.

Avatar n tn 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. I have done a good deal of research on the matter and, from what I can see, there haven't been any proven instances of the treatment causing skin cancer.
Avatar n tn It is indicated in many diseases including skin and soft tissue infections such as cystic and pustular types of acne.It can also affect the rest of the body and can result in side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dysphagia, enterocolitis, photosensitivity, hypersensitivity reactions, oral and vaginal thrush, or liver function abnormalities. Minomycin has also been associated with hyperpigmentation when used for prolonged periods.
Avatar f tn Hello, Laser hair removal is not 100% fullproof and some miniature hair may be left even after multiple laser hair removal sessions. Also it is not without side effects and may cause redness, erythema, hyper or hypopigmentation and sometimes burning and dryness of skin. So discuss all the pros and cons with a dermatologist before getting it done.
Avatar f tn I work at the top laser hair removal company in the uk and we don't treat anybody who is pregnant, it's not worth the risk, it can also cause pigmentation because of the hormones x rubbish I know because I was due to get mine but iv just found out in 5 weeks =)
Avatar m tn Hello, Redness and erythema are frequent side effects of laser and without treatment, this usually takes about 1-2 months to resolve and for the skin color to go back to its normal color. If the redness is converted into hyper or hypopigmentation then you should get it evaluated from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

Avatar f tn Hello, Laser treatment is not without side effects and may cause hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, redness and erythema. Laser hair removal would require multiple sittings depending upon the area where the laser hair reduction is to be done. You should consult a good dermatologist and discuss the pros and cons with him. Most patients need a minimum of seven treatments.
Avatar n tn Hello, Redness and hypopigmentation are frequent side effects of laser treatment which takes quite a while to improve. Keep on applying good quality moisturizer and sun screen before going out in sun. You can also apply calamine lotion which helps in soothing the skin. If the symptoms persist then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist. 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 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 Permanent removal of hair usually takes more than one session so i would have faith in the dermatologists who told you the hair and skin will be fine after this trauma. Does the laser clinic offer an after-care service? He should definately make them aware of his bad reaction.
Avatar f tn I remembered fumbling for my glasses first thing when i woke up. The side effects were starburst and poor night vision. But it got better over time which could be due to my myopia regressing and now stabilised at -1.75. Which is cool as i have excellent near vision. My retina was torn not too long ago, which was laser treated. I think it was bound to happen being highly myopic. Some of my friends and collegues had lasik too and i am amazed how different they look without their glasses.
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz?

Avatar m tn Dear Practioners, My questions are in relation to a potential allergy reaction to a tattoo laser treatment. On 1st March 2011 I underwent a laser treatment (Alexandrite device) on a couple a tattoos I have (one on the inner part of my left arm and the other on the back side of my right arm) however, I have noticed that about 04-05 weeks later I started developing mosquito-bites type of thing on the area of the tattoos which can be very itchy and come and go within a few hours.
Avatar n tn Hello, Hyper and hypopigmentation are sometimes the undesirable side effects of laser treatment. Topical treatments with acids and chemical peels can be effective but can take a while for the skin to totally revert to its normal color. Microdermabrasion can also be done, but this might require several sessions. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn They can also be caused by hormone changes, exposure to the sun, and injuries. Scars and indents are side effects of steroid injections for keloids and it may take months to heal and fill in when collages in formed but sometimes it may take longer or less depending on the depth of the indentations and the response of the skin. If they persist then you can get collagen filling and laser resurfacing done. For the spider veins also, laser treatment is required.
