I had laser hair removal on my legs a year ago but got burnt so badly I have permanent scars – I still cry about it now | The Sun

IF you’re fed up with shaving or waxing your legs, you may have considered getting laser hair removal.

Many people have shared their great experiences with this procedure, showing off their smooth finish that can last for months, if not years.

But one woman has taken to TikTok to share her horror experience with laser hair removal, after she ended up with permanent scars all over her legs.

Beauty fan Carys Salisbury, who has amassed 12.1k followers and 1.8million likes on the video sharing platform, posted her laser hair removal experience to the social media app and said: “Still cry to this day”. 

She shared an image of her legs, covered in white marks, to which she said: “Why do your legs look like that?”.

Then Carys shared the answer, as she posted an image of a professional hair removal laser machine.
