Is laser hair removal safe?

Like most cosmetic treatments, yes it is safe, if performed properly by a licensed technician and if all safety precautions are taken. There are very few hazards associated with laser hair removal. The most hazardous part of the treatment is the laser itself and the effect it has on the eye, though any damage created by the laser is easily preventable. It is important for both the patient and technician to don protective eyewear. As far as damage to the skin, there are minor side effects that may occur, including skin discoloration and minor burns. These can be avoided by having a skilled technician perform the treatment.
