Dermatologist Ekaterina Mokina told Zvezda about the effect of laser hair removal on the development of skin cancer. According to the specialist, those who want to use the procedure should first of all carefully study the age spots on the skin. It is also recommended to avoid laser exposure to moles.
“Laser hair removal is a method of acting directly on the skin in the form of radiation. If we take into account the fact that there are only certified and registered lasers, that the doctor is trained and has sufficient experience in carrying out the procedure, then there will be no bad effects on the skin,”the dermatologist emphasized.
According to Mokina, when dermatologists and cosmetologists are trained, they are told about all the contraindications for the procedure. In particular, there are skin diseases in the acute stage when epilation cannot be performed.
“But this does not mean that there is a risk of skin cancer. It all depends on the type of skin. If all modes on the device are set correctly, then there will be no negative impact,”the doctor said.
Earlier, the beautician warned about the dangers of a tanning bed in winter. "Artificial" tanning deals a complex blow to the body, can provoke skin cancer and severe burns.
