You may notice redness and swelling the first few hours after laser hair removal treatment. You can apply ice on the treated area to reduce discomfort.
After laser hair removal, avoid sun exposure: natural sunlight and tanning beds for 6 weeks and use a sunscreen (SPF 50).
The most common side effects of permanent laser hair removal:
Skin irritation - occasional discomfort, redness and swelling are possible after laser hair removal. All signs and symptoms usually disappear within a few hours.
Pigment change - laser hair removal can darken or lighten the treated skin, usually temporarily. Skin lightening can occur mainly in people with darker skin, especially if the laser is improperly used in unsuitable environments.
Permanent hair removal is not recommended on the eyelids and the surrounding area for possible serious injury.
