A lot of women choose this relatively painless procedure to remove unwanted hair in problem areas such as the chin and upper lip.

How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal employs the use of devices which emit a hot, concentrated laser beam which zaps hair follicles, killing them at the root. During the process, the follicle gets filled by melanin and closes up, preventing future growth. That being said, in order for the whole process to produce permanent results, one will have to repeat the removal process every few weeks for up to a year.
Laser Hair Removal Burns
Laser hair burns are usually severe and can lead to permanent scarring. A lot of the times, estheticians will try to convince you that a skin burn is temporary and part of the process and that you should slap on some aloe vera and it will be gone by the next session. However, it is important to note that these burns will almost always leave behind severe scarring and lead to disfigurement, eventually leading to emotional anguish, depression and anxiety. At the same time, if your burns are catastrophic, you may need skin graft surgery which usually costs a pretty penny over a number of months or years.
Negligence During Laser Hair Removal Procedures
If the esthetician acted in a negligent manner during the process such as leaving the laser light on for too long, operating machinery while under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicants, wasn’t paying attention to your complaints or legitimate concerns, or was poorly trained or uncertified to carry our laser removal surgery, you may be able to file an Indiana laser removal burn lawsuit to recover money damages.
