Am I at Risk for a Burn From a Laser Hair Removal Procedure?
Anyone who undergoes a laser hair removal procedure is inherently at risk for a burn injury. I think it's important for every patient to understand the mechanism of treatment. And the way that laser hair treatment is performed is to direct a super heated beam of light through the hair shaft into the follicle and damage the stem cells in the follicle through introduction of heat. Once you realize that heat is the primary source of treatment it's easy to see that any of the surrounding skin can also be burned and therefore injured. If you feel you may have been injured as a result of a laser hair procedure you should contact a qualified personal injury attorney.
