How safe is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal has become a popular service, with many clients choosing this long lasting hair removal treatment over conventional shaving and waxing for unwanted hairs. One concern often brought up by those considering treatments is how safe is laser hair removal? Simply put, laser hair removal is safe.
Laser hair removal has not shown to have any long-term health risks for patients who have undergone treatment. While being an overall safe and effective treatment option, there are some short-term considerations to keep in mind.
First, treatment may result in some minor redness and irritation at the treatment site. Laser hair removal works by damaging the hair follicles, so it makes sense that the body may react to this as it heals. This is a short-term side affect, and usually clears up quickly, often within hours, for most patients.
Another potential side affect of laser hair removal are changes in skin colour. This side affect is more rare, but in some cases skin may lighten or darken sightly at the treatment site. Similar with redness, this is often short lived, and will return to normal in time.
There are other rare side affects such as blistering or scarring, but this is fairly rare.
When laser hair removal is carried out safely and correctly, the potential risk for short term side affects is minimized. Often, patients will have a small area tested for treatment first, to see how their body reacts to treatment.
Also, keep in mind that Being treated by someone who is not properly trained could result in serious health issues, such as eye-damage. It is therefore important to choose a properly licensed and reputable practice. Consider Simply Flawless Laser for your laser hair removal needs in Surrey.
