Are there any side effects?
Some typical side effects of laser hair removal include a mild sunburn-like sensation (redness), accompanied by some minor swelling, immediately following the treatment. These effects may last a few days. Other less common possible side effects include pain, bruising, peeling, rash, prolonged itching, ingrown hairs, crusting, and infection; burning, blistering, and scarring; scabbing, broken capillaries, and acne or herpetic breakouts.
Pigment (skin color) changes may include lightening of the skin or darkening of the skin, lasting one to six (1-6) months or longer or possibly permanently.
Removal or lightening freckles or other pigmented lesions may occur. Freckles and other pigmented lesions may temporarily or permanently disappear in treated areas. There is a risk of lightening or darkening of vascular lesions in the treated area.
There is a risk that the hair regrowth may be changed, such as little or no regrowth or more regrowth than before.
People of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean descent, as well as those who have an ill-defined hair line with no obvious transition of the hairline to the face, may have a higher risk of unexpected hair growth. Your treatment provider can provide individualized information on potential side effects with you.
