Lazer Hair Removal

Laser hair removal uses non-ionising radiation in the form of a concentrated light source that produces a very fine laser beam. The laser beam is used to kill hair follicles resulting in the loss of hair growth from those follicles. Laser therapy does not use the same UV wavelengths as those found in sunlight (i.e. UVA & UVB), which are known to damage the DNA in cells & cause skin cancer. The pulses of light energy used in laser hair removal treatments are only designed to heat & destroy hair follicles.

Laser Hair removal can cause temporary irritation, slight redness & swelling.

Laser hair removal isn’t recommended during pregnancy. This is due to the fact that no human studies have proved the safety during this time. Your skin is often thinner & more susceptible to irritation.

According to studies, only the skin surface is affected by the lasers, the small amount of radiation from the procedure cannot penetrate your organs.

Long term effects of laser therapy, including the possibility of an increased risk of cancer, have not been studied. Some researchers have observed changes in atypical moles after laser hair removal. It is suggested caution is used in cosmetic laser therapy for people with a personal or family history of skin cancer or atypical moles, until further research determines whether these changes may be malignant or not.

Dr. Gary S. Chuang, dermatologic surgeon at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, reported the preliminary results of a study he conducted that demonstrated laser hair removal releases potentially harmful toxins into the air.

Dr Chuang & his team discovered 300 different chemical compounds in the plume of smoke that comes off each procedure, 13 of which have been shown to be harmful to humans & animals, like benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, & diethyl phthalate.

The biggest risk is potentially to the practitioners who perform these procedures & are exposed to the plumes frequently. It’s important to note that no documented cases of cancer or other illnesses have been associated with laser hair removal at this point. Use with caution.
