Laser Hair Removal Myths Debunked

February 24, 2017

When you think about all the time, money, and effort you spend removing hair on your body, it seems only reasonable that there should be a more permanent way of doing so. To some, laser hair removal can seem intimidating when they don’t know the details about the treatment. Let’s explore some laser hair removal myths and the real truths you need to know.

  1. Laser hair removal isn’t safe: Laser hair removal can sound intimidating and even like a scary radioactive procedure that you would only see in movies. But in reality, these laser beams do not emit radiation. Moreover, you should be assured that any laser beams approved by the FDA and Health Canada are more than safe for you to use. At IG Beauty, our experienced staff ensure that all treatments are done safely.
  2. Laser hair removal isn’t for everyone: There seems to be some public confusion about who laser hair removal can be effective for. The truth is that laser hair removal does not work equally for all people — but that doesn’t mean it can’t be partially effective for everyone. While it is hardest for red heads and blondes and virtually impossible for grey or white hairs, as long as the surrounding skin of the hair is somewhat lighter than the hair itself, laser hair removal should have some efficacy. The laser beams target dark pigments, so people with dark hair and light surrounding skin have the most advantage.
  3. Too expensive: Another common misconception is that laser hair removal is unaffordable. The truth is that in the long run of life, it is more than practical than other hair removal treatments. The amount of money one could spend on monthly waxing, or continuously purchasing razors, shaving creams and other at-home hair removal products added up over a lifetime, does not come close to the price of a few sessions of laser hair removal, which offer permanent results.
  4. It has opposite affects: One myth of laser hair removal is that it causes an increase in hair growth; this is an absolute myth! The only reasons you may experience hair growth in new places is due to age, hormonal changes, or medication side effects, not your laser treatments. But don’t fret, because as you continue to return with new follicles, laser hair removal can catch and remove them all.
