When To Consider Laser Hair Removal

When To Consider Laser Hair Removal?

If you’re thinking about getting laser hair removal, you’ve come to the right place! There are plenty of reasons you might consider laser hair removal. Here are a few:  

You’re tired of waxing, plucking, or shaving. 

In this case, laser hair removal can be a great option. If you have thick, coarse hair on your face, legs, underarms, or bikini area, laser hair removal eliminates the need for routine grooming. Say goodbye to wax strips, tweezers, and razors after just a few sessions. 

Eliminate razor bumps. 

Razor bumps are not only unsightly, but can cause discomfort and itching. When you eliminate the need for shaving, razor bumps become a thing of the past. 

Conditions related to excess hair growth.

Hormone imbalances such as increased androgen or testosterone levels can result in excessive hair growth which can be overwhelming. Other causes of excess hair include medications and disorders such as polycystic ovary syndrome (POS). Laser hair removal can be an adjunctive therapy to limit excessive hair growth. 

When Should You Avoid Laser Hair Removal?

There are times when laser hair removal can be unsafe. For instance, if you’re pregnant, your altered hormonal state can increase the risk of complications such as skin burns. Here are some other times you should be cautious of this procedure:

  • If you have skin cancer in the treatment area
  • You take acne treatments or certain other medications like oral retinoids or medications that are light sensitive or photosensitivity.
  • If you are prone to cold sores or have genital herpes (HSV-2)
  • If you are prone to keloid scars
