Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal uses a beam of high-intensity light where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat to destroy the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Laser hair removal will safely and gently remove unwanted body hair without damaging or irritating the skin. Before laser hair removal treatment you should not pluck, wax or undergo electrolysis for 4-6 weeks. It is also important to avoid sun 4-6 weeks before and after laser hair removal. The number of treatments needed depends on skin color, hair color and coarseness of hair.

According to Mayo Clinic it is important that a medical doctor is on-site during your treatments. Be cautious about, spas, salons or other facilities that allow non-medical personal to perform laser hair removal with no doctor supervision.

Folliculitis is caused by inflammation around hair follicles which creates red bumps and pustules. These bumps can happen wherever there are hair follicles. Folliculitis can be caused by infection, irritation, blockage and other skin diseases. One specific type of folliculitis is caused by irritation due to regrowth of hair which usually occurs after shaving, waxing and or plucking. These pustules are sterile and there is no growth of bacteria or other organisms. People who deal with chronic irritant folliculitis benefit from permanent hair removal with hair laser.
