What to Expect: Laser Hair Removal Side Effects in Rochester

Laser hair removal at Envision Aesthetics is a great way to have smooth skin without the daily hassle of shaving or waxing. Thanks to laser hair removal treatments like Forever Bare BBL, men and women can eliminate unwanted hair for show-off worthy skin. Forever Bare uses light therapy to target, heat, and destroy hair follicles. Like any treatment, you may notice laser hair removal side effects, especially if performed by someone with little experience.

Our experienced team has seen first hand the amazing hair-reduction benefits of a Forever Bare treatment, and we make sure that our treatments are done with care to minimize negative side effects.

What You Should Know About Laser Hair Removal→


Most people will experience mild redness immediately after a Forever Bare treatment. This is temporary and usually goes away within a few hours. If redness persists, talk to a physician right away. That may be a sign that your treatment wasn’t properly catered to your skin. 


Skin discoloration doesn’t usually happen, but it can arise if you’ve tanned before your treatment. To avoid this, don’t tan for at least four weeks before your Forever Bare BBL treatment at Envision Aesthetics in Rochester. This also includes self-tanning lotions and sprays. 


For most, Forever BBL isn’t painful at all. Some even describe the feeling as a hot stone massage. Others say it feels like quick snaps from a rubber band. The amount of discomfort varies from person to person, but it’s definitely not something to worry about. 

Small bumps

Some people may notice small bumps forming in the treatment area(s) for up to two weeks after getting Forever Bare BBL. Again, these do subside. If you have itching, you can apply over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream 3 to 4 times a day. 

The best way to reduce laser hair removal side effects

A surefire way to ensure you the most out of your Forever Bare BBL treatment is to get the treatment done by a trained professional. Someone with little experience may not use the proper techniques needed to reduce damage to your skin while giving you the best hair-reduction results. Do your research, and always ask questions such as:


  • How long have you been doing laser hair removal treatments?
  • What are your qualifications?
  • Is your laser FDA approved?

The answers will help you determine the best place for you to get Forever Bare BBL.
