Neodymium (Nd:YAG) Laser Hair Removal Side Effects
Some short-term problems to keep an eye on are blistering, scabbing, swelling, redness, and discoloration.
Who shouldn't use it: Laser treatments have been known to cause discoloration on dark skin. Make sure your doctor has performed a laser treatment on dark-skinned patients before going ahead with the procedure. The YAG must be used for short periods of time, not used continually.
Drawbacks: The Nd:YAG is the most painful of the available lasers, and one treatment is usually not enough to address cosmetic concerns.
