4 Laser Hair Removal Myths Debunked

Laser hair removal is a type of hair removal treatment that is becoming more popular and widely talked about as time goes on – and for good reason – it’s incredibly effective!

But have you heard people say that “laser hair removal is painful” or “it’s too expensive” or “it’s not safe” or even, “it permanently removes body hair”? These are just some of the myths floating around about laser hair removal, and we’re here today to debunk them! Let’s get started.

Myth #1: Laser Hair Removal Is Painful

Okay, okay, we get it, ‘laser hair removal’ doesn’t sound like a walk in the park, but let us tell you – it’s not as bad as you may think. People often describe it as feeling like the snap of a rubber band against their skin, but others say they barely feel anything at all.

It depends on a wide range of factors, but the overall consensus seems to be – it can be uncomfortable in some areas, but not unbearable. Regardless, most people would agree it’s less painful than waxing or epilating, and because laser hair removal sessions are faster than either of these other methods, it’ll be over before you know it.

Myth #2: Laser Hair Removal Is Expensive

Yes, the upfront cost might be higher than other hair removal methods, but think of the long-term savings. With laser hair removal, you’ll likely be hair-free for years, saving you a ton of money in the long run – those regular waxing appointments and packs of razors add up in no time.

Myth #3: Laser Hair Removal Isn’t Safe

A lot of people are scared to try laser hair removal because they think it’s unsafe. But, here’s the deal – laser hair removal is a safe and well-researched procedure. Side effects of laser hair removal are minor and easily managed, but nonetheless, they can occur when treatment is performed incorrectly.

That’s why it is recommended to always go to a reputable practitioner of laser hair removal for your treatments.

Myth #4: Laser Hair Removal Permanently Removes Body Hair

Lastly, let’s tackle the very common myth of “laser hair removal permanently removes body hair”. Although it is true that this treatment will permanently reduce the amount of hair in the treated area, it likely won’t permanently remove the hair.

Overtime, new hair growth can happen from hormone fluctuations, prescription medicines, or simply because some hair follicles managed to recover after treatment. But this can easily be fixed with a ‘touch up’ treatment every now and then to maintain the results. These touch up treatments are not regular, and are few and far between.
