What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
There may be some risks of side effects with have laser hair removal treatments. However, these risks tend to vary depending on adherence to pre-treatment, adherence to post-treatment, hair colour, skin type and treatment plan. Typically, the most common side effects may include skin irritation and pigment changes in the skin. Skin irritation may present with redness, swelling, and temporary discomfort. However, these skin irritation side effects usually disappear within a couple of hours. The pigment in the skin within the laser hair removal treatment area may become lighter or darker, especially for those who did not avoid sun exposure prior to treatment. On rare occasions, laser hair removal may result in scarring, crusting, or blistering of the skin. Greying of treated hair may also occur, although is very rare. Another rare side effect is excessive hair growth around the laser hair removal treatment area, this rare side effect may happen on darker skin individuals.
How does Brazilian laser hair removal work?
Brazilian laser hair removal involves the removal of all or almost all pubic hair. The laser emits light energy to targeted follicles which in turn stops pubic hair growth. Brazilian hair removal is a more permanent solution to pubic hair removal than waxing or shaving. Prior to treatment, it is important to shave the pubic area so the follicles can be present just underneath the skin. Clients should shower using gynecologically and dermatologically tested cleansing products prior to treatment. It is also a good idea to use a soothing lotion purchased from the clinic for post-treatment care.
How permanent is laser hair removal in New York – Williamsburg or Park Slope and Brooklyn?
Laser hair removal is not exactly permanent hair removal. However, laser hair removal treatments do minimize unwanted hair. Laser hair removal does not get rid of 100% of the hair follicles in the treated area, however, hair follicles that do produce hair can be reduced by approximately 75% to 90%. When hair follicles are destroyed by laser treatments, they do not regenerate or regrow, however, hair follicles that are not treated will re-grow. During laser hair removal treatments, not all the hair will be in the same cycle of hair growth. This is why multiple treatments may be required to achieve optimum results.
Is it worth getting laser hair removal?
Absolutely. Laser hair removal treatments can provide a 75% to 90% hair reduction in treated areas. Laser hair removal is a great alternative to waxing, shaving or depilatory creams and lotions. Laser hair removal, in essence, provides long-lasting hair reduction. Laser hair removal treatments destroy hair follicles so they cannot regenerate which results in lasting hair reduction.
Is laser hair removal painful?
A more appropriate word for clients undergoing laser hair removal is discomfort rather than pain. However, having said this, it also depends on the area that is being treated. For example, a Brazilian would be more uncomfortable than laser hair removal treatments on the leg. It also depends on a person’s pain threshold. For some people, it is merely discomfort and not exactly what they would refer to as pain. A numbing cream can also be applied prior to treatment to minimize the level of discomfort.
How many sessions is laser hair removal?
As there are many cycles of hair growth, laser hair removal treatments do not destroy all the hair follicles in a treated area all at once. This is why multiple sessions may be required. The number of sessions an individual will require to achieve optimum results will depend on the area being treated, the hair colour, skin type and growth cycle of the hair. Typically, 8 sessions are required to destroy most of the follicles in an area. Sessions should be spaced out every 6 weeks. At the end of the laser hair removal treatment sessions, the client may have very few random hairs that will need to be shaved every two to three weeks. These hairs will be lighter in colour and much finer. Clients having laser hair removal on their face may require a couple of touch up treatments annually to maintain their results.
FAQs About Laser Hair Removal near me
Have questions about laser hair removal? How long does it take? Does it hurt? We have you covered! Check our most frequently asked questions or contact us to speak with a knowledgeable BYou representative.
What is laser hair removal, and how does it work?
Laser hair removal is a modern day method of getting rid of unwanted hair. It is a cosmetic treatment technique that makes use of special concentrated light beams to target hair follicles that produce hair. Here at Byou laser clinic, we use special handheld laser equipment to deliver the special beams of light.
Laser hair removal works by targeting tube-shaped sacs known as hair follicles. Hair follicles are responsible for the healthy growth of unwanted hair. The light beams generated by the lasers are converted to heat energy. This heat energy damages or permanently destroys your hair follicles. The resultant effect is that that ability of your hair follicles to produce hair is inhibited.
Laser hair removal usually starts with a trimming of the affected region. Following this process, our specialists at Byou Clinic adjust lasers based on the thickness, color, length, and location of the hair that you want to be removed. Your hair has different stages in its growth cycles. If your treatment takes place during the perfect stage, most of the hair follicles in the treated area will be destroyed. Therefore, you will not experience hair growth in the treated area.
It should be noted that it is impossible to completely destroy all the hair follicles in the treated area during a single session. Additional sessions may be needed over time to inhibit hair growth completely.
Is laser hair removal right for me?
With advances in cosmetic science, there is only one right answer to this question. Laser hair removal is appropriate for everybody. If you have unwanted hair, then you should definitely consider getting rid of it with laser hair removal. Laser hair removal can be undergone by people of all skin colors, ethnicities, and ages. Anybody can choose to use laser hair treatments. Although it should be mentioned that if your hair color is red or grey, you may have to explore other hair removal options. This is due to the fact that the lasers used to target hair follicles make use of color. Therefore, red/grey hair may affect efficiency.
Laser hair removal is right for you if you are seeking a long term solution to unwanted hair. Additionally, it is preferred by many due to its many benefits. It is extremely convenient and requires no downtime when compared to other hair removal methods. With other hair removal methods, your hair is definitely going to grow out again. With laser hair removal, the reverse is the case.
Your hair may grow out in places where the hair follicle is not fully destroyed. However, even at that, the rate of hair growth will be slower. Over time, with additional treatments, laser hair removal can help you fully stop the growth of unwanted hair.
Is laser hair removal safe and does it hurt?
At Byou clinic, laser hair removal is completely safe. Generally, laser hair removal is considered to be a safe form of hair removal. Since laser hair removal is non- invasive, there is reduced risk of infection and bruising. Additionally, many people who have used this treatment method in the past have found it to be a safe form of treatment. There are no long-term health conditions or risks associated with making use of laser hair removal.
However, there are some minor side effects that you should know about. These side effects are nothing to be worried about. They usually clear within a few days. As long as your treatment is carried out by certified specialists, like the professionals that work at Byou Clinics, you have nothing to worry about.
On the subject of pain, generally, laser hair removal is not considered to be a painful treatment. You may feel a slight sting during the procedure, but that’s all. Of course, your pain thresholds may be low. Therefore, you can request that a numbing cream be applied to the treatment area to eliminate any pain and associated discomfort. Following treatment, your skin may be red or tender. This is not out of the ordinary. Within a few days, your skin should be back to normal.

What if I cannot have laser hair removal treatments?
Laser hair removal treatments do not discriminate based on hair length, type, or skin type. Under normal conditions, everybody can undergo laser hair removal treatments. However, if you suffer from an infection, skin condition, or injury in the area that you want to treat, laser hair removal might not be possible. Additionally, it is also recommended that pregnant women do not undergo laser hair removal treatment.
In cases like this, you can decide to wait for the injury, infection, or skin condition to heal up. Alternatively, there are other hair removal methods that you can use.
Temporary treatment techniques such as threading, waxing, and tweezing are safe alternatives, especially if you are pregnant. These methods can also be carried out by trained aestheticians; that way, you will make sure that you don’t have any issues.
However, it should be noted that these methods are only temporary fixes. Within a few weeks, your hair will start to grow out again. Additionally, they have a lot of side effects that you may have to contend with. These risks include skin redness and bumps. It is also possible that you may suffer from an infection in the area surrounding your hair follicles. Most of the time, it is best that you wait until you can undergo laser hair removal successfully.

First off, the results of laser hair removal are permanent when compared to other methods of getting rid of unwanted hair. Additionally, it also has fewer side effects and risks compared to methods such as waxing, tweezing, and shaving.

How should I prepare before laser hair removal?
There are a few important steps that you have to take to make sure that your laser hair removal session works out without a hitch. To reduce possible complications and the severity of side effects, you are advised to avoid waxing for at least a month before your treatment session. When you wax, you forcefully pull out your skin’s hair follicles.
Since laser hair removal targets your hair follicles, the treatment will be ineffective. In addition to waxing, avoid using hair removal methods that involve the forceful removal of hair follicles. Such practices include plucking and tweezing.
Additionally, before your treatment session, it is vital that you shave the area to be treated. This should be done a day before your session. Doing this will expose your body hair and skin to light from the laser beam making your treatment easier. Shaving also prevents reactions such as skin irritation and burnt hair.
As much as possible, stay out of the sun in the weeks leading up to your treatment. Use a sunscreen if you have to go into the sun. Also, do not use artificial tanning techniques of any kind. Finally, before your procedure, it is best that you remove any skincare product of any kind in the treated areas. Products such as moisturizer, body oils, and sunscreen should not be used.

Differences between laser hair removal and IPL treatment?
Yes, there is a difference between Laser hair removal and IPL treatment. The major difference is in the type of wavelength transmitted during the process. Devices for laser hair removal make use of one wavelength, which targets specific melanin (chromophore). This method enables deep penetration and allows the energy to aim at a particular removal spot directly.
Also, these lasers carefully “damage” specific hair follicle targets without disrupting the tissues surrounding the spot. Additionally, laser devices are always set to transmit the exact wavelength which your hair type requires.
Laser devices emit light rays that do not cancel themselves out. These light rays are also coherent. It produces light rays that differ from natural light and is made up of waves of the same wavelength.
On the other hand, Intense Pulse Light( IPL) devices, unlike lasers, are not monochromatic. Also, the light energy they emit is not intense. They produce a deeper wavelength spectrum and cannot target a particular spot of removal. IPL equipment disperses a range of various wavelengths at different depths which affects only a few hair follicles, causing a result that is less than efficient.
Finally, Laser hair removal achieves significantly more excellent results and is more effective than IPL treatment. Research shows that laser hair treatment produces optimal results of 80% or more after a few treatments.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Human hair grows in a cycle. Usually, every 4-6 weeks. This cycle depends mainly on the type and part of the body. Laser hair removal can only work on actively growing hair. This means that if your hair is not actively growing during treatment, you will need more sessions.
After the first session, you will have to wait for about six (6) to eight (8) weeks between treatments. This doesn’t mean laser hair removal is not effective. When the hair starts growing back in a few weeks, they will be finer, fewer, and lighter.
Nonetheless, you will require multiple sessions of laser hair removal to see good results. Even though the results are not permanent, multiple sessions at Byou laser is sure to give you at least 70% or more hair growth reduction.
Also, multiple sessions of laser hair removal are necessary to prevent the hair from growing again. It is unlikely that you will be able to remove every hair follicle during your first sessions. Therefore, multiple sessions of laser hair removal treatment will lead to long-term hair reduction. To that end, Byou Laser recommends that you undergo multiple sessions of 5-7 treatments to get rid of unwanted hair effectively.
What are the factors behind excess hair growth?
Many people wonder why specific parts of their bodies have excessive unwanted hair. Here is an excellent explanation that answers that query.
Hormones known as androgens are the reason behind the growth of your body hair. Usually defined as a male hormone, both men and women produce it. Under normal conditions, the incidence of this hormone leads to normal hair growth and development.
However, if your body is producing excess androgen hormones, it will translate to excess unwanted hair.
That’s not all. Many medical issues can cause an over-production of androgen hormones and consequently unwanted hair growth. They include:
- PCOS: This is a common cause of excessive hair growth in females. It is a hormone imbalance which causes the body to produce excess androgens.
- Genetics: It is entirely possible that you may have inherited the gene for excess hair growth. If a close family relative suffers from unwanted hair growth, it is incredibly likely that you will also grow hair excessively. This inherited gene is peculiar to people of East Asian, Native American, Northern European and African- American origin.
- Some male hormones like testosterone increase size, intensify the pigmentation and growth of hair. They also stimulate excess and unwanted hair growth
Why should I choose laser treatment ahead of electrolysis?
Laser hair removal treatment and electrolysis are the two most common types of hair removal systems. Laser hair removal uses soft radiation through high-heat laser devices. The aim is to wipe out hair follicles to permanently reduce hair growth.
Electrolysis is a type of hair removal method that works by disrupting unwanted hair growth. It works using chemical or heat energy to destroy the growth centre of unwanted hair strands. During electrolysis, an electric current is passed through your hair follicles to destroy them.
Both methods are effective for the removal of hair. However, electrolysis consumes more time because the probe placement must be accurate to avoid complications. Also, each hair follicle must undergo individual treatment. On the other hand, laser hair removal consumes less time since it is more accurate. Laser equipment can quickly target hair follicles and emit pulses within milliseconds.
Additionally, you only need 5-7 sessions to get long term results with laser hair removal. With electrolysis, you may need up to twenty sessions.
Finally, laser hair removal is less painful. If your pain threshold is not high, then electrolysis is not for you. You may need pain relievers and ice pack before your next session.
