What are the complications of laser hair removal?

Complications after laser hair removal are rare, and they are temporary. They resolve within few weeks if they occur.

Possible complications:

  1. Itching, burning and discomfort, along with redness in the area: This is the most common complaint and may occur after an hour of treatment. It resolves after two or three hours. This occurs due to inflammation around the hair roots. It is a natural process and not at all a problem, in fact it shows that the laser is working.
  2. Arogyam Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Surgery Center uses the best and most modern machine, the Diode Laser machine, for safe and permanent removal of hair at a competitive price, in Guwahati, Assam and entire North East.
  3. Hypopigmentation: sometimes hypopigmented patches or light colored patches can appear in the skin. This is more common in persons with dark complexions. It is always temporary and resolves within a month.
  4. Hyperpigmentation: in this a hyperpigmented or dark patch can occur in the skin, this is also always temporary and resolves similarly
  5. Blistering, crusting and scabbing: These are signs of burn injury. Such burn injuries are very rare. When they occur, they are always superficial and occur in the epidermis, the most superficial layer of the skin. They heal without leaving any permanent mark.
  6. Herpes lesions: People suffering from herpes simplex type 2, a sexually transmitted infection, can have a recurrence of the lesions of herpes simplex 2 if laser removal is done in the bikini line area.

All these complications are temporary and heal without leaving any permanent mark. It is important to note that all these lesions are minimized even further by use of the low fluence continuous motion technique. This makes these complications very unlikely in our clinic.
