Laser hair removal is one of the most successful treatments for permanently removing hair from the body, and with more women preferring it over waxing and removal cream, there seems to be no indication of it losing popularity anytime in the near future. Despite the fact that it has grown in popularity in recent years due to its simple, effective, and, for the most part, painless method of removal, there are so many myths and misconceptions about the procedure. Let’s discuss a few of them:
Myth 1: Hair grows thicker and more frequently:
Laser hair removal does not cause hair to grow denser; on the contrary, each treatment should result in a reduction in hair growth of between 10% and 25%. At subsequent sessions, the density, thickness, and pace of hair growth are all reduced, and the hair that still does grow back is usually considerably finer and lighter than earlier.
Myth 2: Laser hair removal is painful:
While your tolerance for pain is a personal thing, the majority of people say laser hair removal feels like a rapid flicking of an elastic band and nothing more than that.
Myth 3: Laser Hair Removal is harmful:
The laser used in laser hair removal is attracted to the pigments in the hair follicles; therefore it only treats the hair follicle and nothing else. This method does not affect the surrounding tissue and has been successfully utilised on millions of clients. Many researches have also confirmed the safety of laser hair removal. Nothing is at danger as long as you are treated by a qualified dermatologist with advanced and safe tools & equipment.
Myth 4: Laser hair removal leads to skin thinning and damages the skin:
It works exactly opposite to this. It improves the texture of the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production in a gentle way. But make sure to get this done under the certified dermatologists.
Myth 5: Very expensive:
Using razors, waxing, foams, and other traditional hair removal procedures to keep your skin smooth costs more in the long term. Furthermore, these approaches must be followed for the rest of one’s life and are both monotonous and uncomfortable. Permanent hair reduction can be done with lasers in just a few painless treatments over a few months.
