Follow these tips for Laser Hair Removal if you have a dark underarm

Laser hair removal is a great way to get rid of unwanted hair, but it can be difficult to do if your skin is darker. If you have dark underarms, you may be afraid to try laser hair removal because you are worried about getting burned. In this article, we will share a simple hack that will help lighten your underarm skin so that you can safely perform laser hair removal.

Tips to reduce the chances of getting burned by a laser hair removal treatment

The good news is that there are ways to prevent getting burned during laser hair removal. Here are a few tips:

  • Choose a licensed professional: Be sure to choose a licensed esthetician, cosmetologist, or a laser certified staff to perform your laser hair removal treatment.
  • Do a patch test: Before your full treatment, ask your provider to do a small test spot on your skin. This will help you see how your skin reacts to the laser.
  • Use skin brightening products: if you feel that you have a darker underarm we recommend you to use our signature skin brightening product, the BeautiRx Illuminating Pads, a few weeks before you start your laser hair removal treatment at the clinic of your choice.

  • Choose the right laser: There are different types of lasers that can be used for hair removal. Be sure to discuss with your provider which type of laser is best for your skin type.
  • Protect your skin: Laser treatments can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Be sure to wear sunscreen and avoid sun exposure.
  • Take care of your skin: After your treatment, be sure to follow your provider's instructions for taking care of your skin. This may include using a cool compress and applying a soothing cream.

How many people are burned after a laser hair removal treatment?

Laser hair removal is a minimally-invasive outpatient procedure. Each year, over one million people in the United States alone receive this treatment. While it is considered safe for most people, there are some risks involved. The most common complication from laser hair removal is skin burns.

In a study published in 2015, researchers looked at the data from over 24,000 laser hair removal procedures. They found that almost half of all the complications were skin burns. The majority of these burns were mild, but some were more severe.
