A lot of women have discovered the wonders of laser hair removal. However, some still shy away from undergoing this procedure because of the different myths and speculations they have heard. Find out the truth about laser hair removal and don’t miss half of your life!

Myth #1: Laser hair removal will cause more hair growth.

This is a false statement; if it isn’t so, this might already be our cure for baldness. The procedure does not cause more hair growth because it destroys hair follicles and prevents more hair from developing.

Myth #2: The benefits of laser hair removal are the same for all.

The truth is that the results of laser hair removal vary from one person to another. Those with dark hair and light complexion may benefit more from laser hair removal because dark pigments are easier to identify and target.

Myth #3: You will be exposed to radiation when you undergo laser hair removal.

Some traces may be emitted between the laser’s light barriers, but this is not harmful to the patient in any way.

Myth #4: Only one long session is needed.

It is impossible to eliminate hair growth indefinitely with just one session. Because hair grows in different cycles, there is no way that they can be targeted by laser all at once.
