No, there is no risk of ingrown hairs. In addition, the laser eliminates them. If the hair is not too deep, light will reach it, the hair will die and gradually the skin will push them to the surface. Depending on the case, these ingrown hairs may disappear within 1 to 8 months.
Folliculitis can have a bacterial, fungal, viral or parasitic etiology, but the laser cannot be its source. However, in case of disease, laser hair removal is not recommended in order not to worsen the situation. In this case, it is better to consult a dermatologist. About cancer: this is one of the most common concerns. No, the laser does not cause cancer, its light is harmless, that is officially confirmed. Laser affects the infrared ray, and skin cancer causes ultraviolet radiation. You are more likely to harm yourself by staying in the sun or in a solarium for a long time than with laser epilation. In addition, epilation is performed only once a month. Laser hair removal also does not affect the internal organs, because the light does not penetrate so deeply – at most into the lower layers of the epidermis.
