It may or may not be accompanied by an infection of the hair follicle (folliculitis) or "razor bumps" (pseudofolliculitis barbae), which vary in size.

One of the most touted benefits of laser hair removal is that it works for short hair.Another "selling point" for laser hair removal is its speed. Indeed, this technique can be done much faster than electrolysis.Although less painful than electrolysis, laser hair removal is not pain-free. As the hair is heated by the laser, the nerves are certainly able to detect the rise in temperature. The level of discomfort is related to the hair texture and skin type. As mentioned earlier, people with dark skin absorb more light from the laser and feel it a bit more than people whose skin reflects the light. Solutions to the pain can be found in anesthetics (like Lidocaine) or cooling devices which are very commonly used with laser treatments. It's also possible to use a simple ice pack to help cool the hair and skin in-between laser blasts.
