Is it true that laser hair removal causes skin cancer?
Hello, I am a 28 years old female. I am thinking about getting a laser hair removal treatment. I have a few queries. I wanted to ask, will laser hair removal cause skin cancer? Is it safe to get hair removed by laser treatment or will it cause skin cancer?
@pony Hello, No, It’s a myth that laser hair removal causes skin cancer. Different lasers are used to treat sun damage and wrinkles. The lasers used in hair removal or other skin procedures have such a minimal amount of radiation. Plus, the minimal amount is only being exacted on the surface of the skin. So, they don’t pose a risk of cancer. Laser hair removal is safe and effective for most people. As a precaution, you shouldn’t get the procedure done near your eyes or during pregnancy. See your doctor if any rare symptoms occur after laser hair treatments.
