People usually know and read information about the risks of laser hair removal treatments, but the information usually is coming from the laser clinics, which have the least interest to let you know of some of the more severe threats that come along with laser treatments.
Though most of the laser clinics have laser hair removal safety experience, some are unprofessional and dangerous. If you have the time to investigate through medical websites, and cross search some tough Latin words, one might be surprised to learn some of the brutal consciences that can follow or even happen in the middle of laser hair removal treatments.
While many think that laser hair removal is a fast and simple solution to unwanted body hair, with no actual risk involved, the truth can be in some cases far from that. Of coarse there are some dangers of laser hair removal in every session but in some cases the damage, pain and agony is much greater than hair lost in the treatment.
Here are four risks that are not as common but not as rare as we wish they would.
1. Unpleasant to say, one of the hazards people suffer from is caused by one’s own fault. Too many times laser treatment patients do not follow the simple instructions given and expose them selves to the sun less than a week after the procedure, and will suffer swelling or burns as a result…
2. In the medical review books there are some known cases of significant side-effects such as reticulated erythematous, which is characterized by a long lasting inflammation of the skin resembling a web-like pattern. This is caused when a person undertakes sessions of laser hair removal in short intervals.
3. If your laser treatment is going to be around the eyes, you should be aware of what is known as Uveitis. Uveitis specifically refers to inflammation of the middle layer of the eye, termed the “uvea” but in common usage may refer to any inflammatory process involving the interior of the eye This problem can happen when using a longer wavelength laser. This might cause redness of the eye, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, dark, floating spots along the visual field and eye pain.
4. Very rare but odd things sometime do happen… sad effects of blindness, if the lasers are used near the eyes; know that some clinics or technicians are just not trained enough.
5. Avoid tanning and the use of self-tanning sprays or balms for 4 to 6 weeks before your treatment to minimize danger. The laser can either increase or decrease melanin creation and make the skin around the treated place darker or lighter. Unfortunately, hypo-pigmentation (white spots) may be permanent.

Ask about common and rare side effects, see the body language when the person selling you the laser session’s answers. Search local newspaper and forums and ask for recommendations from people who have passed treatments.
