Bumps after laser hair removal
It is normal to get a little red and some swelling and maybe itching after laser hair removal. It should go away in a few days.
Bumps After Laser Hair Removal
The biggest risk with laser hair removal is skin damage which can lead to a change in the skin's texture or color. If you expose your skin to sun several days before or after the laser, the chances of skin irritation or problems with pigmentation are more likely to occur. Many patients get 1-2 days of mild redness at each hair follicle, but this is only temporary and is different from a reaction that would cause hyper pigmentation or scarring. Do not worry, this is a normal side effect and will eventually fade within weeks after the treatments.
