How Safe is Laser Hair Removal?


Laser hair removal is an effective method of removing unwanted hair. It works on most areas of the body and lasts longer than other hair removal methods like shaving or waxing!

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Laser hair removal is a safe method to remove body hair. However, some people may experience minor side effects of laser hair removal after treatment.

By targeting hair follicles under the skin, laser hair removal reduces the amount of hair that grows in. As the body reacts to this, some people experience tenderness, redness or swelling.

These minor side effects are normal and temporary. The affected area often react similarly to skin that has been plucked or waxed.

Taking care of your skin after laser treatment is essential. We recommend keeping the treated areas out of direct sunlight and using fragrance free lotions to moisturise the skin. Side effects usually subside within 24 hours.

Rarely, laser hair treatment could result in more serious side effects such as bacterial infections or burns. If the process is done correctly and by a qualified practitioner, you are less likely to experience these serious side effects.

So, make sure the person performing your treatment is experienced and qualified. If you experience troubling side effects, talk to your practitioner at the clinic you received treatment or, visit your doctor.

To ensure safety on the day, you will have to wear specially designed goggles to prevent injury to your eyes. Both you and your practitioner will have goggles on when the laser is in process.
