Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures. Laser hair removal is a grooming option for over 30 years. People go to this option for removal of unwanted hair to get long lasting effects. Laser hair removal is considered effective for only darker hair and the hair removal option for lighter hair is electrolysis. Here is some informative discussion on side effects of laser hair removal.

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. Laser hair removal consultant must be licensed dermatologist and follow all precautionary measures.

    Hi gals.

    I have been plagued by facial hair for so long and have tried creams, electrolysis which left a black marks on my skin, waxing etc until I found this amazing little tool called Epicare. It is just a lil spring with handles on either side. I love, love, love it. It is so affordable compared to laser where there is still no guarantee that facial hair will be totally gone. For gals who are used to threading this is the perfect D.I.Y. tool. Got mine at I have been using mine for 8 months now.
