Laser hair removal treatments have some side effects during the treatment and after the treatment. There may be near immediate reaction as skin becomes red and swollen just after the treatment and this swelling and redness can be alleviated with ice packs. In some cases localized blistering occurs around the hair follicles. If it happens so then antibiotics should be applied.
Allergic problems can be caused due to direct exposure to sun. Sunscreen should be used to prevent side effects. Different bacterial infections can also occur. Darkening or lightening of skin or tattoos can also occur. To prevent side effects of laser hair removal treatment, people should be very careful in selecting the consultant.
