Laser Hair Removal limitation
Like electrolysis, laser removes unwanted hair on legs, arms, chin, mostly everywhere. Because the laser beam is attracted by the melanin (pigment) of the hair, it limits itself to mostly light skin with dark terminal hairs for best results. A person with darker complexion may account situations where the laser beam may heat too much of the skin as it would do for dark terminal hair.
Risks: By Mayo Clinic Staff
Laser hair removal does not guarantee permanent hair removal. Some hair may be resistant to the laser treatment or may grow again after treatment — although the new hair growth may be finer and lighter in color. The most common side effects of laser hair removal include:
Skin irritation. Temporary irritation, crusting or scabbing is possible after laser hair removal.
Pigment changes. Laser hair removal may darken or lighten the affected skin, usually temporarily. Skin lightening primarily affects those who have darker skin, especially if an incorrect laser is used at an incorrect setting.
Rarely, laser hair removal may cause blistering, scarring or other changes in skin texture.
If you’re interested in laser hair removal, choose a doctor who’s board certified in a specialty such as dermatology or cosmetic surgery and has experience with laser hair removal. If a physician’s assistant or licensed nurse will do the procedure, make sure the doctor supervises and is available on-site during the treatments.
