The Safety Aspect Of Laser Hair Removal

Removal of unwanted hair is one of the most common things that people of the modern world practice for the beautification of their appearance. There are many ways by which a person can remove unwanted hair from his body. They include methods like electrolysis, waxing, shaving, plucking, laser hair removal, etc. Each of these methods have their benefits which we can see as soon as we are done with the treatments. But God intended us to be differently. We are not supposed to be hairless, naturally. Thus all of these hair removal methods will have side effects of their own.

Talking about laser hair removal in particular, there is a technique that comes to mind which is fast, relatively painless and the results are far more effective than all the other methods mentioned here. But obviously there is a price for that apart from the money. There are a few safety concern to be kept in mind when opting for laser hair removal.

First of all, ad the most important is the color of your skin relative to the color of your hair. The color of your skin and the color of your hair must be in great contrast for laser hair removal to be carried out safely and without any side effects. If this is not taken care of, hideous rings will appear on your skin around the hair follicle. The basic science behind this is that light is absorbed better by darker surfaces than lighter surfaces. For laser hair removal to be possible, the energy of the light pulse of the laser should be absorbed by the follicle so that it gets burned. If the skin around the hair follicle is darker or even close to the color of the hair follicle, energy will also be absorbed by the skin and that shall result in something known as a ‘laser burn’ on the skin. This laser burn will affect your skin giving rise of gross irregularities on the surface of the skin around the hair follicle. So before you go in for laser hair removal make absolutely sure that this condition is satisfied. In any other case, do not consider laser hair removal as an option. It will do you more harm than good.
