Here are some myths and facts about laser hair removal that will help you decide whether to choose the procedure or not to say goodbye to unwanted body hair permanently.
Myth: Laser hair removal is not safe for all types of skin.
Fact: removing hair using a laser is a reasonably safe procedure that rarely causes serious complications or permanent side effects. However, it is advisable to mention here that the safety of the process depends on the type of laser system that your supplier uses to remove the hair. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved several laser systems for the safety of patients. As long as a dermatologist uses an FDA-accredited laser system, there is a minimal chance of developing problems during and after treatment.
Myth: lasers can cause more hair to grow.
Fact: Laser never gets too much hair. If this were true, thousands of people who are looking for a surgical hair transplant would like to undergo one-two laser sessions on their scalp. Nevertheless, some lasers stimulate hair growth when they are used to heal the hair. It is said that everyone has their own hair growth patterns that change over time. It can change at any time by internal or external factors. Some people start losing hair with age, while hormonal changes over time cause more hair to grow. So nobody can claim that the hair will never leave after the laser session, but blaming the laser for the development of new hair is nothing more than a myth.
Myth: lasers are equally effective for all types of hair
Fact: Laser hair removal cannot be equally effective for everyone to consider that the hair type and texture of everyone are different. In comparison with light-colored finer hair, laser works best on thick, thick hair. In addition, the type and color of your skin also play an important role in determining the effectiveness of the treatment. Black, dense hair can best be targeted in light tones through all types of lasers.
Myth: Lasers will expose you to harmful radiation
Fact: All FDA-approved laser systems are approved for the emission of harmful radiation by the US Food and Drug Administration for the removal of unwanted hair. Laser beams work in the hair follicles by transferring heat energy to a certain level where their ability to grow again is permanently switched off.
Myth: a long session can produce end results
Fact: if you think so, sorry that you have been misquoted or misinterpreted. It is not possible to remove the hair from a specific area during a session. Regardless of what speed and energy you use or how long you prolong the session, it is impossible to permanently damage the roots of all hair in that area. The hair on your body grows in different cycles and at different times. While some children are actively growing, others will be in a state of rest. Laser beams only focus on those hairs that actively grow on your body, and not on those of Rome that are going to grow new hair. You need at least 6 to 7 sessions – multiple sessions – to get maximum results.
