In this article, we are going to bust 5 Laser Hair Removal Myths.
1. Your hair grows back thicker if you shave - FALSE
Natural hairs are usually finer along the ends. Once the hairs have been shaved, they are given a blunt cut which results in the ends looking and feeling thicker. In reality the hair is of the same thickness.
2. Tweezing or plucking is fine between treatments - FALSE
For an effective Laser Hair Removal treatment, the hair root must be intact. A laser beam is shot into the skin to pick up pigment in the hair follicle. If a treatment is conducted in an area where the hair has been tweezed, the laser beam will have no subject to target. Thus resulting in an ineffective treatment.
3. Tanning, naturally or artificially doesn’t effect the treatment - FALSE
Although there is technology available today that can treat tanned skin, it is highly recommended to avoid tanning for 48-72 hours before the treatment. This allows the laser to pick the roots of hair follicle with more accuracy.
4. Home gadgets are just as effective as clinical treatments - FALSE
Hair removal methods which are classified safe to conduct at home are usually proven to show weaker results. As they may be a way to keep hair growth at bay, they are usually not strong enough for a permanent reduction in the hair growth. You should always consult a professional technician and make sure that the treatments are FDA approved.
5. Laser Hair removal is costly - FALSE
Over time laser hair removal is more cost effective than ongoing traditional methods of hair removal such as waxing, shaving or epilating. At Advanced Laser Clinic we offer treatments starting at $29.50.
