Laser Hair Removal – Facts & Myths

Laser Hair Removal – Get the facts not the myths

Over the years since the arrival of Laser Hair Removal as a commercial treatment there has been speculation, hearsay and rumours regarding the treatment and this article is here to clear everything up. We will tell you with myths are myths and the truth about this revolutionary treatment.

The treatment damages skin – Myth

Laser Hair Removal will only affect the hair follicle and will leave your skin unharmed and completely intact. The skin may be slightly swollen and red after the treatment but this will dissipate quickly. Laser Hair Removal machines do not cause scars as the machine can’t cause wounds on any level.

It is permanent – Myth

Laser Hair Removal treatments are long lasting and durable to say the least but that does not make them permanent sadly. The treatment destroys the hair follicles and the bulb of the hair currently there so the hair will no long grow in the treated area. However, this does not stop new hair follicles appearing.

Laser Hair Removal is suitable for all skin colours – Myth

I think this has been one of the most debunked myths in the industry but we will still cover it anyway. Laser Hair Removal targets melanin which is what makes your hairs dark, this means that if your hairs are lighter it will not be as effective but that does not mean that the treatment will not work. If you want to know how effective this treatment will be on your hairs, book a free consultation with one of Laser Life’s amazing specialists.

The treatment causes in-growing hairs – Myth

The simple fact is this this, the treatment does not cause in-growing hairs as the treatment destroys the follicle and therefore the bulb of the hair within it. The hair will no longer grow back so if anything Laser Hair Removal can be effective in eliminating in-growing hairs.
