The Side Effects and Risks of Laser Hair Removal

Permanent laser hair removal is accepted as a safe and harmless procedure. However, as with any aesthetic treatment that uses specialist equipment and delivers life-changing results, there are a few potential side effects and risks to be aware of. Our experts will always advise you of the risks beforehand, particularly any side effects that could specifically affect you. Below are some of the known risks of laser hair removal treatment.

As your skin may not be used to the laser, minor side effects are common and will only last for a short while. Common minor side effects you may experience following laser hair removal are discomfort, redness, irritation, swelling, pigmentation changes and skin crusting, but these should typically disappear after three days.

Severe side effects of laser hair removal are very rare but can happen. Rare risks include changes to skin texture, scarring, blisters and excessive hair growth. If you experience any of these symptoms, we advise that you see your GP. There is no evidence to suggest that laser hair removal causes skin cancer or infertility; these myths should be disregarded.

Laser hair removal is extremely safe when performed by an experienced specialist. Using an inexperienced and unqualified practitioner increases the chances of severe risks, including burns and scars. You will be in safe hands at our skin clinic, where our team are fully trained and have lots of experience in this area. We will always be available to speak to you if you have concerns before, during or after your procedure.

The Process of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Laser hair removal is relatively quick and straightforward, but you might have questions about the process. Below is information on what you can expect before, during and after treatment.

Before Treatment

  • The first step is finding a professional clinic specialising in laser hair removal. Our practitioners are experts with decades of experience, and we use only the best state-of-the-art equipment.
  • Before starting your laser journey, you must book a consultation with the clinic. This consultation will ensure the treatment is right for you and allow you to ask any questions you have.
  • During the consultation, the practitioner should review your medical history, discuss the risks and benefits of treatment, and let you know how best to prepare. They should spot any signs that treatment would not be suitable for you or if there are any particular health complications.
  • You will be advised what medications to avoid, such as blood-thinning medications.
  • From four weeks before treatments, you should avoid other hair removal methods like waxing and plucking. You must apply sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight.
  • You should shave the area of the skin the day before your first session.

During Treatment

  • On the day of your laser hair removal treatment, the practitioner will clean the area and may apply a cooling gel or topical anaesthetic. Our skin clinic uses a laser with built-in blue diamond and air compressor cooling, ensuring minimal discomfort.
  • You will wear specially designed safety Goggles to protect your eyes from the laser.
  • The practitioner will press a handheld device against your skin and activate the laser. The laser emits a light that creates heat energy targeting the hair follicles, preventing or delaying further hair growth in this area. This will be repeated several times, and sessions may last anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour.
  • During treatment, you might feel a minor discomfort like a brief stinging or pinprick sensation. Laser treatment is often described as feeling a rubber band snapping against your skin. While there might be a slight discomfort, the procedure is generally not a painful experience.
  • Once completed, your immediate results will be assessed, and anti-inflammatory cream or ice packs will be applied if necessary.
  • You will need multiple sessions across several weeks, depending on the treated area.

After Treatment

  • Following laser hair removal, your skin may appear red, and a raised rash can develop. These side effects are generally minor and last a few days. There is no downtime, and you can usually return to normal activities except sunbathing or tanning.
  • The practitioner will offer aftercare steps, which may involve cooling the skin with an ice pack.
  • You should apply sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight until you have finished your course of treatment and the area has fully healed, even in poor weather conditions.
  • You can always ask us for advice if you have any problems or concerns after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions on Laser Hair Removal

What areas can be treated?

This treatment an work on any area you wish, including the bikini, lip, chin and underarm.

Are people with thick, coarse and dark hair the best candidates?

Do you have dark hair and are frustrated with your hair's regrowth and removal process? Then laser hair removal may be the ideal process for you! However, it's worthwhile knowing that thick and darker hair can take longer to achieve results.

How do I know what skin type I am?

For the best and most accurate treatment, we use a Phototype Detection Device at each session, helping us obtain top-level results.

Will the device work on my skin type?

Our device is suitable for all skin types. The device can be used on tanned skin and is easier to fit in sessions during summer. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any concerns about your suitability.

Can I have treatment while on medication?

Laser hair removal treatment is not recommended if you are on a particular medication. For example, if you are on any photosensitive medicines, you must stop taking them at least one week before the procedure. Several antibiotics can be photosensitive, so you may need to reschedule if you are being treated for an infection. Contact us or your local GP if you are unsure whether any medication you take will affect your treatment.

Can I continue with my usual skincare routine?

You can continue with your skincare routine depending on what products you use. Products containing actives like retinoids and alfa hydroxyl acids are best avoided. Ingredients such as these can increase your skin's cell turnover, making it more vulnerable to the sun and irritation while it heals.

How long until I see results?

You can usually expect to see results after 6-8 sessions. However, the number of sessions can vary. The results will depend on your hair's active growth rate. As different body parts have different growth rates, the treatment duration varies.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Our Manchester and Bolton clinic's device has built-in blue diamond and air compressor cooling. This powerful, steady cooling system provides a pleasant and safe feeling throughout the treatment's duration, ensuring utmost effectiveness.

What do I need to do before my appointment?

Before you begin treatment, we ask that you shave the targeted so that the laser can penetrate the root of the hair. This measure helps us avoid targeting hairs on the skin's surface and ensures the most effective treatment results.

What about other hair removal treatments?

Your hair's root must be intact for the laser device to destroy the hair follicle effectively. Therefore, you should avoid waxing, tweezing or bleaching the hair for one month before the treatment session.

Do I need to do anything after my treatment?

After each session, please avoid exposing your skin to the sun. We also advise that you stay away from sunbeds. We highly recommend applying suitable sunscreen if you go out into the sun. Between sessions, hair grown should be shaved off instead of waxed or threaded.

What is the cost of laser hair removal?

The price per session can vary depending on the treated area. Permanent removal requires multiple sessions, so we offer a course price with a reduction of 10-15% compared to paying for individual sessions. Laser hair removal can be seen as a long-term investment by keeping your skin hair-free for life and saving much-needed time.

Is laser hair removal just for women?

It's a common misconception that laser hair removal treatment is only for women. We believe in challenging gender norms and are happy to welcome people of all genders and backgrounds at our skin clinic. Women are more likely to use this treatment for areas like the legs, underarms and face, while men often use it to remove hair on the back, chest and shoulders. Ultimately, laser hair removal is recommended for anyone seeking to eliminate unwanted hair in any part of the body, regardless of gender.

Can I have treatment if I have a skin condition?

Depending on the type and severity, your suitability for laser hair removal may be impacted if you have a skin condition. Some skin conditions will be okay when targeted by the laser, while other conditions may only be suitable if the laser targets an unaffected area or if suitable steps are taken to mitigate risk. More severe problems, however, may dictate that treatment is not carried out at all. We will always carefully examine your skin and medical history before advising the best action to avoid complications and protect your health. If you have any concerns, you can raise them during the consultation stage.

What is Laser Removal Technology?

Laser hair removal uses a laser light that removes unwanted hair by destroying hair follicles in the skin. There are several types of laser devices used for permanent hair removal, including:

  • Diode: Extremely effective for light and dark skin. The Diode device works between the depth of 808-810nm, offering a higher selectivity between the hair and skin around it. The diode device is suitable for all skin types, including tanned and all skin colours, like blonde and red.
  • Alexandrite: Not effective for dark or tanned skin types. The Alexandrite device is the fastest type and part of the Ruby laser family. The Alexandrite laser is ideal for treating larger body areas for clients with light-to-olive skin complexion.
  • Nd:YAG: Not as effective for light or fine hair as other lasers. The Nd:YAG laser device can be used on all skin types, including tanned skin.

Why Our Device?

For the reasons listed above, we decide to use the high-powered Diode device for our treatment. The device's innovative technique, energy, precision and effectiveness offer unique benefits in high-end hair removal procedures. The Diode device helps us perform super-fast treatments while maintaining effective results.

Energy from the laser coupled with microlenses for precise and uniform energy distribution is transferred through the fibre, picked up by the pigment in the hair follicle, causing destruction to the root and blood flow to the follicle. Once this occurs, it disables hair growth permanently.

The Diode laser device is unique in that it offers a dual function of hair removal combined with skin rejuvenation simultaneously. Skin rejuvenation is also an option as a stand-alone treatment, and has great effectivity at treating age spots, enlarged pores, wrinkles, and unifying the skin tone.

The device we use is complemented with blue diamond cooling and dual air compressors, ensuring safe, effective and completely pain-free treatments.

Reviews for Laser Hair Removal Treatment

We have performed successful laser hair removal treatments for many clients, helping them permanently eliminate unwanted body hair. Here's what just a few of our happy clients have to say about the laser hair removal procedures they've undergone at our Bolton clinic:

"I really like this service. I had laser hair removal in 2019 only 2 sessions but didn’t see any changes. But this time I really surprised after taking only 1 sessions. My hair growth reduced 70% . Really liked it. I recommend whoever wants to do laser hair removal."

Mili Meher, 5/5

"I am so glad that I decided to go ahead with Nichola for laser hair removal (bikini line). I had been thinking about it for some time and came across Enhance Clinispa as it is local to me, and decided to go for it. It honestly has increased my confidence wearing bikinis/ underwear so much as I used to always get a rash/ ingrown hairs down there and would have to shave every few days, but there is none of that now, there has been such a massive positive result after just two sessions! Nichola explained the whole process very clearly, she explains all your options and makes you feel super comfortable at each appointment. It is a modern and clean clinic and really couldn’t recommend it enough. I am over the moon with my treatment so far and can’t wait to see the finished result, I really wish I had gone ahead with it sooner! Thank you :)"

Emma Martin, 5/5

"I have been coming to see Nicola for a few months for laser hair removal. I opted to have this after struggling with PCOS side affects and the results have been incredible.

"I've had 6 sessions, and the hair has practically gone. I have a few patches that I'll need a few more sessions on but it's been amazing seeing the hair go and feeling more confident. The laser has also worked wonders for my skin, getting rid of blemishes and bumps from hair growth.

"Aside from laser, I've also purchased some medical skin care products to help rehydrate my skin and reduce oiliness and rednees and my skin is now glowing.

"All prices are more than reasonable, and the service provided is of an incredibly high standard. I'd highly recommend."

Eve Crabtree, 5/5
