When deciding whether or not to make the investment in a home laser hair
How does this Laser Technology Work?
Laser energy is light-based, and light creates heat. The laser is such an intensely focused beam of light that it causes things that absorb it to become extremely hot. The dark pigments in your hair are the perfect receptacles for this energy, and are quickly affected by the intense heat which then causes the hair to fall out. The hair follicle will eventually heal, but follow-up treatments ensure that the hair will not regrow.
There are some drawbacks to being limited by dark pigments. For example, what happens if your skin has the same pigments that your hair has? The dark pigments in your skin can absorb the energy of the laser, which means it can absorb the heat as well. Therefore, people with dark skin are not eligible to use this system, as it can cause burns and can damage the skin.
Unfortunately, this system can only be used by people with light skin and dark hair. If your skin tone is tanned, medium, dark brown, or black, using a laser can cause unintended laser hair
Potential Temporary Side Effects of Laser Hair
Naturally, exposing your skin to the power of a laser can create some temporary side effects. Right after treatment, your skin may become sensitive, and you may experience some itching, mild discomfort, rashes, red marks, or swelling. All of this is perfectly normal, only occurs in a minority of cases, and disappears quickly. In order to prevent further damage to your pores, you will be advised to avoid the direct light of the sun for up to seven days.
Potential Long-Term Side Effects of Laser Hair
While it is possible to permanently damage your skin or be the victim of long-term side effects during home laser hair
