What Are The Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal?

At A Beautiful You Medical Spa we have been removing unwanted hair since 2003. Laser hair removal side effects can vary by skin type and color. The side effects of laser hair removal with the newer and latest in technology has diminished over the years. While most Hair Removal clients never experience any side effects you should discuss all of them with one of our team members or any Treatment Professional to ensure you fully understand the alternatives, risks, potential complications and average outcomes of laser hair removal treatments.

  • Side effects following treatments could include a minor degree of redness and or puffiness of the skin and might lasts 1-2 hours. The skin may tingle or feel tender, and may even appear to swell slightly.
  • Some people may experience skin crusting in the affected area. This is typically a minor issue but can be inconvenient. Using a moisturizer, a person may prevent any lasting issues from this treatment
  • Some people may notice minor color changes to the treated area of skin. It may get slightly darker or lighter, following laser hair removal. People with lighter skin may be more likely to experience darker pigmentation changes. People with darker skin tones may be more prone to lighter pigmentation changes. These changes tend to fade away over time, and the skin returns to normal.

Less common side effects can include the following:

Burns, blisters, and potential scaring. This should not be an issue with qualified practitioners.
