Laser Hair Removal Near Eyes, Nipples, Anus, Or Genitals

Beware Of Laser Treatments Too Close To Eyes, Nipples, Anus Or Genitals

Some people who do at home laser hair removal treatments, try and remove hairs from places which are not meant to be treated by laser. Trying to treat these ares by home laser systems can result in pains, skin burns and scarring. Other side effects might be permanent discoloration of the area together with lots of pain and discomfort.

Check further below which laser systems to buy for safe home treatments.

The skin which should NEVER be treated by laser:

  • Skin around the eyes.
  • Over the lips.
  • The anus, between the butt cheeks.
  • The nipples and dark areolas around the nipples.
  • Genitals, vagina, or under scrotum.
  • Over tattoos, moles or warts.

Laser Over Dark Nipple or Anus Skin

The laser hair removal works by emitting light on the skin which is turned into heat when it is absorbed by dark matter. In the best scenario the light is projected on pale skin and dark hairs, so the hairs get all the light energy and they warm up until they are destroyed (this happens by a short intense pulse).

When laser is emitted over dark skin, the light is absorbed by the skin tissue and not by the hair, so the skin gets all the energy and warms up instead of the hair. Pulsing laser light on tanned skin can get the skin burned in a second.

Nipple-Laser-Hair-Removal-300x112When doing laser hair removal at home, and emitting laser on the nipples, the dark areolas will get zapped and not the hair. First of all it would be extremely painful! Then the burned flesh odor may be felt, and redness and scarring can appear soon after the treatment.

Laser treatments are permitted only for fair skin types. Darker skin types are not allowed to be treated by home laser systems. Some systems like the TRIA laser have a skin tone sensor lock, which checks the skin tone before each laser flash. As you can see in the illustration the nipple is too dark (type 5) for laser hair removal.

This goes for the anus too. While the butt skin can be treated by laser, the anus itself is darker than the surrounding skin and will absorb more light energy than the skin can manage.

Lips Laser Hair Removal

The skin tone difference can be noticed for the lips skin too. When people do upper lip or chin hair removal, accidental flash at the lips can be very painful and end in skin burns too.

Laser Hair Removal Eye Damage Hazards

There is no much to add on laser side effects when emitted toward the eyes. The intense light can cause sever damage to the sight, and even blindness. The TRIA laser has a skin-touch sensor which locks the system unless it is pressed at the skin, so no accidental pulses can be flashed to the eyes.

The main risk happens when people do facial hair removal and try and treat the eyebrows hair. Then they put them self in a high risk of eye damage or accidental laser emitted toward the eyes.

Genitals, Vagina Laser Hair Removal

Laser is a concentrated light energy, usually with a single wavelength. It has the ability to reach deep into the lower epidermis layers to heat the hairs under the skin in their hair follicle. Treating sensitive areas with laser is very unpleasant. It gets even dangerous when treating areas where the skin is very thin, moist and uneven.

Women’s vagina is not a surface which can be treated by laser, the skin folds inner and outer lips would be pierced by the light energy causing it to transfer heat into unpredicted locations. The inner and outer women’s vagina also has darker skin tones than surrounding skin.

Which Laser Hair Removal System Is Safest

There are a some laser hair removal systems and IPL to pick from.

Updated 2013! The safest system currently is the Me my ELOS Pro-Ultra:

Tria Laser Safest For Home UseThe safest home laser system, is the TRIA laser. The other laser systems preform the exact same process using the same wavelength like the TRIA, but they lack the added value the TRIA has. TRIA laser machine will avoid even the dumbest user from causing any self injuries.

You can buy TRIA through the amazon link below

With the skin tone sensor and the skin touch sensor the TRIA will not emit laser on dark skin nor it will shoot laser flashes into the air. TRIA is not permitted on facial skin at all, nor can it be used for vaginal hair removal.

Stay safe, buy the TRIA beauty laser system

The DM6050 laser can be used close to the lips or around the nipples or tattoos because of the thin wand applicator which allows the user to see where the beam is emitted to. Use a white pencil or white tape to cover lips, nipples or tattoos when treating with the DM6050 laser.
