Laser Hair Removal
What is laser hair removal?
The principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis, in other words the transfer of a wavelength of light and pulse duration on a targeted area of tissue. Lasers can therefore cause localized damage by heating the dark matter (or melanin) in the areas which cause hair growth (the follicle) without causing damage to the rest of the skin. Common locations for treatment include the legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and bikini line.
What is the procedure of having laser hair removal?
This is a treatment to reduce the growth of unwanted hair on the face or body and is more long term than traditional methods of removal such as shaving. The procedure involves a laser beam being held over the area to destroy the hair in the follicle. Some inflammation is to be expected, however this should only be temporary.
Some specific risks of laser hair removal include:
If you have sustained excessive physical or emotional problems after the procedure, you may have a claim for compensation if your surgeon has not taken sufficient care and skill during the surgery or has not provided you with proper advice in your consultation before the surgery has taken place. You may also be able to claim for the costs of any further corrective surgery that is required.
