Laser Hair Removal and Acne

Recommended Posts

Since pimples are formed in hair follicles if you get rid of your hair wont that cause you not to get clogged follicles anymore?

Laser hair removal doesn't remove the actual hair pore. It just 'damages' the hair at its root, so it doesn't grow anymore. Since the hair pore is still there, oil can still seep through it, and just like any other pore, it can get clogged.

If laser hair removal removed the actual pore itself, that'd lead to all kinds of problems... and probably only one positive outcome: no acne in that area.
