Depends on where you get it done from and who is doing it.


One of my patient who was getting laser treatment for facial hairs asked me: can I get laser treament on underarms as well, does it lead to cancer or it produces lump in axilla etc??.
So I answered it is completely safe and laser is never a risk factor for cancer. the common side effects include redness, burning very rarely a burn mark which also fades in few weeks......
