It: It is still possible that you will get ingrown hairs with laser hair removal, although it is less likely.

Over time, the number of in-growns should drastically reduce with laser hair removal, as there will be less hair. Good luck! ...Read more

What will happen if you got laser hair removal on light colored hair?

Typically, not much: Laser hair removal works by heating up the cells in the hair follicle enough to damage them. In order to damage the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin, the laser energy must be absorbed more by the follicle than by the skin. This will only happen if there is a contrast in color between the hair and the skin. Light-colored hair is too similar in color to the surrounding skin. ...Read more
