Thanks for writing to us.
Slight redness and swelling around hair follicles is an indicator of good clinical response and is quite a common effect seen after laser hair reduction. This may persist for two to three days and gradually disappears. At times some people get severe redness after laser session. To treat the same, avoid sun exposure. Do icing of the concerned area and apply a steroid based cream. Hopefully in few days the redness would subside
Hope that helps. Take care
