In rare cases, patients may experience skin burns. Patients with a darker skin tone experience burn more frequently, because darker skin has more pigmentation which absorbs light easier.
Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of the skin that can sometimes occur from laser hair removal. It is similar to a suntan since the laser treatment stimulates melanin production, which increases pigmentation. Hypopigmentation is the lightening of skin that can sometimes occur from laser hair removal. Just like hyperpigmentation, it is caused by the light absorption that can inhibit melanin production, which causes the skin to lose pigmentation.
Itching is a common side effect of laser hair removal due to the drying out of the skin.
