Is laser hair removal safe? Understand the advantages and disadvantages of laser hair removal

First of all, we need to understand the principle of laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is to use the highly concentrated laser to go deep into the root of hair follicle, heat the pigment therein and spread to the whole hair follicle, so as to effectively destroy the hair follicle, so as to inhibit the growth of body hair in the short term, but will not cause damage to the skin tissue around the hair follicle. Generally, Laser hair removal for five to seven times can achieve a good hair removal effect. Therefore, laser hair removal method is relatively safe. Compared with other traditional hair removal methods, laser hair removal has the advantages of simple operation, safety and efficiency.

Secondly, although it is relatively safe to use laser for hair removal, this method also has some disadvantages. First, laser hair removal is suitable for darker or dark body hair, but the effect is not obvious for light or white body hair; Second, there will be some side effects after laser hair removal, such as pain at the hair removal site, or edema in the tissue around the hair follicle. If it is more serious, blisters and pigmentation may be formed, and scars are rare; Third, if you are allergic to bleaching agents such as hydroquinone, this method is not applicable.

In general, the advantages of laser hair removal outweigh the disadvantages. Therefore, after consulting the hospital, laser hair removal can generally be carried out as long as they are not allergic to bleach and not scar physique. After laser hair removal, you must pay attention to sunscreen to prevent pigmentation. If there are erythema and edema in the hair removal area, you can use ice compress to reduce swelling.
