Can laser hair removal lighten skin?

Have you noticed areas of discolouration and darker patches on your skin such as on underarms or bikini area? Have you tried all the tricks your internet has recommended, but nothing seems to help lighten the skin? May be the issue is not with your skin, it may be the increased amount of hair follicles that are dark, that are causing the darkened effect on these areas? If you have researched the topic you may be wondering can laser hair removal lighten the skin?

How does laser hair removal works?

Laser works by emitting heat, that is picked up by the pigment in your hair and transported to the hair root. Here the light energy turns into heat energy. Which destroys the hair root preventing future growth.

Can laser hair removal lighten the skin?

No, laser hair removal can’t lighten the skin itself. However it may create a lighter complexion by removing the hair and follicles from underneath the skin. For some patients the follicles are super visible. And they create that patchy effect on the skin, so by removing these with the laser, the area naturally will look lighter. But not because the skin itself has changed pigment.
