Have you or someone you know suffered a laser burn from a negligent health care provider or spa?
Laser hair removal may be a very risky procedure. Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can and do cause serious burns, skin discoloration and even permanent scarring.
Complications may be caused by the improper use of lasers, scarring caused by chemical peels, hyper pigmentation caused by laser hair removal and many instances of skin cancer being overlooked due to the removal of malignant tissue that could have otherwise served as a warning sign. The inherent danger of laser hair removal is further compounded by the fact that these procedures are usually performed by a cosmetologist, licensed technician or other non-physician.
Those with tattoos are even more susceptible to laser burns.
Laser hair removal operates on the principle of color difference. Essentially, the difference between the color of the skin and the color of the hair causes the laser to heat up and destroy the hair follicle. When a laser is applied anywhere near a tattoo, the ink attracts the laser causing it to heat up and burn the tattoo.
While anyone who undergoes laser hair removal treatments runs a serious risk of being burned, those with tattoos on or near the area to be treated are highly likely to experience adverse effects.
