You have to stay out of the sun before getting laser hair removal otherwise it's bad on your skin. The place that I go to uses Gentlelase, it's Medical grade laser and very effective. I've had 5 sessions on underarms and bikini area. The underarms are pretty much hair free now, the bikini area probably needs another 2 or 3 sessions. I go every 6 weeks.

I have lhr done every 6-8 weeks. I've had it done for some time now and have it under control now! Two years ago, this october, I had my only bad experience (besides all the pain from each trmt) I was burned on my stomach and abdomen. Apparently, my summer tan had not gone away. My outside skin was white again, but the deeper tissue apparently had some darker pigments that made me burn!!! I had little deep purple burns from chest down. About 3 months later the purple had gone away, but you can definately tell the spots just on my stomach where there is fattier tissue. everytime I'm without a shirt someone comments on the dots, so it's become an obvious problem. I've tried fading creme and tri-luma (way too strong and caused a rash) I am now in the process of trying full treatment of using a profractional laser to see what happens. I've had a couple dots done with the laser to test, and it did lighten it, so we'll see. I want to upload pictures, buthaven't seen a link to do so. I will keep checkin the post to see if anyone knows how to instruct. thanks!

Some cases laser hair removal produce some side effects, but its due to lack of inexperience technician and not properly taken precautions during Treatment. Apply the aloe vera and vitamin E two to three times daily until your spots get reduced. Get advice of your family doctor or dermatologist regarding this issue.

Sad to see all the lab coats giving such hopeful advice. That white lab coat is likely what made us feel comfortable getting the treatment in the first place. I am not a Doctor. I am a victim of a LHR treatment. The scar does NOT go away in many cases -as you will find in your research. The Dr told me I would be fine and it would go away as well. It did not. I get to live with the resulting hypo pigmentation form the treatment! Hope yours turn out better!

I hate to say this but I am kind of glad to see I am not the only one. I had the laser hair removal precedure done yesterday and MY FACE looks like that picture. Brown little spots. I am African American so my skin is a bit darker. I am using pure coco butter at the moment that is suppose to help fade dark marks. I hope your scars clear up as well as mine.

TNS recovery serum or body lotion will help heal these FAST...It has growth factors and will help prevent them from scarring...Take mega vit C and keep the area moist and circulation good... I can't tell what part of the body this is from the pic.. TNS body lotion has growth factors and dimethiecone to hold them & moisture in.. The cost is more reasonable. If cost isn’t an issue and it shouldn’t be in preventing a scar…I would spot treat with the TNS serum and follow with the body lotion…. After they are fully healed and depending where and how they heal dark or light If Dark I would spot treat with prescription tri-luma using a q-tip ect on the dark area only at night for a few months and continue with TNS in the morning... This has a mild steroid so spot treat only and temporarily. I have found this to be the best to prevent/get rid of a dark spot ect from a blemish or bug bite after it heals If they heal well and aren't very dark Prescription Retina A or (Tazorac, if they are raised) at night. I prefer the cream to the micro especially for body And TNS in the a.m Some white stretch marks on my hip that were 8 years old almost entirely diminished in 4 months using Retina A .1% every night and TNS body cream during the day... The key to preventing scarring will be increasing the cell turnover and staying out of the sun... I found that I can use Retina A everyday with TNS but only few times a week without.. I would ask the spa where you had it performed to foot the bill for these or to refund your money and purchase asap the sooner you treat the better... TNS Recovery serum runs about $140 for .63 ounce The body lotion is about $75 Retina A and Tazorac run around $120 Tri-luma if I recall is around $150 If you have acne,pre skin cancer or get warts..Insurance will sometimes cover the prescriptions (except tri-luma) if you use it to treat both.. Hope this helps..Good luck
