Laser Hair Removal and Cancer

Q: Does laser hair removal cause cancer? And what are the health concerns from laser hair removal?

This one of the most popular questions for many people before or undergoing their laser treatments.

There are two types of Electromagnetic Radiations, Ionizing or Non-ionizing Radiation. Laser used during laser hair removal is a Non-ionizing Electromagnetic Radiation. Non-ionizing Radiation operates at the lower end of the spectrum. Sufficient energy is produced to move or vibrate atoms, but not to remove the charged particles. Radio waves, microwaves, infrared lamps as well as laser hair removal devices all utilize non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation: There is insufficient energy to cause the damage to DNA associated with the development of cancer.


Moreover, Laser has been used to treat skin cancer in the past 10 years. It is one of the most recommended procedures from many dermatologists.


Few questions you should ask before starting your laser treatments:

Is the laser device being used is /contact-uFDA approved?

Is the operator fully trained, qualified, and experienced in laser hair removal?

Is the laser device being used is suitable for your hair and skin type?
