Breakouts due to hair removal treatments such as waxing, plucking and threading, are generally attributed to the irritation caused in the process of pulling the hair from the skin. Laser hair removal does not pull the hair from the skin, but rather is less invasive and uses light to target the hair follicle, to prevent further growth and eventually have the hair fall out. As a result, laser hair removal may result in a decrease in breakouts.
If you have fine hairs on your face, you may find that you still get a breakout even with laser hair removal. If this occurs, speak to your treating technician for aftercare recommendations.
