Can laser hair removal cause unwanted bumps and irritation?
Laser hair removal does not typically cause unwanted bumps or irritation for very long after the procedure is complete. You should have what is called “peri-follicular erythema” after each laser hair removal session. These small red dots around the hair follicle simply indicates that your hair follicle has absorbed the laser energy and will likely be destroyed by the laser energy. The redness should dissipate in a few hours.
