A few years ago laser hair removal was still quite a new concept. And so there was a lot of apprehension about the treatment and many people debated – is laser hair removal good or bad? But after experiencing the life changing effect of the treatment once you try the treatment you’ll never look back. The bottom line is laser is one of the safest, fastest and most effective ways of permanently reducing your unwanted body and facial hair.
Is laser hair removal good or bad?
Absolutely good! And not only good, but life changing. Laser hair removal will save you time as you no longer have to spend hours in the bathroom shaving every few days. You no longer have to endure painful waxing where you feel your skin is being ripped off each time. And no more shaving cuts, bleeding, irritation or ingrowing hair, that often comes with the traditional hair removal methods.
After laser, you’ll have a silkier, smoother skin without irritation. And soon after your completed your treatment you’ll forget that you ever had hair on the areas before.
Laser hair removal side effect
Immediately following treatment, the area may show a slight erythema (redness) with some swelling. Pigmentation, blistering and burning of the skin is always a risk of undergoing laser treatment, however with our strict protocols and expertise, at Skin Perfection, London’ award winning skin and laser hair removal Clinic, we rarely have such complications.
If protocols and aftercare are adhered to, the risk is usually low and can be minimised.
These adverse reactions are rare and uncommon, but may occur for several reasons. Pigmented lesions will darken, and eventually crust over 4-6 days.It is important not to pick these off and allow to heal naturally to avoid scarring. You should also avoid any sun exposure and heat treatments to this area until it has healed.
