1. Only laser can provide long lasting results.
Truth. Laser hair removal is the only method that can provide long lasting results. The fastest way to get rid of unwanted hair is to destroy it with the laser beam. The energy from the laser is absorbed by the melanin in the cells of the hair follicle, which in turn is heated up. Over time, the process of heating up kills the hair follicle and renders further regeneration (growth of new hair) impossible. If you want to know more about how laser hair removal works, click here.
2. Laser hair removal cannot be performed in the summer.
Myth. Laser hair removal treatments can be performed throughout the entire year, provided that you adhere to post-treatment recommendations, such as: 1. Sunscreen with high UV filter must be applied every day, before and after every session. 2. Tanned skin may require additional treatments to get the desired result. 3. Freshly tanned skin should not be treated with a laser. It is mandatory to wait at least 2 weeks after tanning to have the treatment for the reason that burns, edema or discoloration might occur.
3. The number of laser treatments to obtain long lasting results is an individual matter.
Truth. Usually, single session allows to permanently remove about 15 to 30% of hair – depending on how much hair is in growth phase (anagen) when the procedure is performed. 6 to 8 cycles should be performed at 6 weeks intervals in order to obtain the effect of reducing the amount of hair by 70 to 95%. This will allow the laser beam to act on bigger number of follicles in growth phase and permanently deprive them of the ability to produce new hair.
4. Laser hair removal hurts.
Myth. For most people, laser hair removal seems to cause discomfort due to the heat on the skin. The degree of discomfort experienced during the treatment depends on individual issues, but the technology behind the laser device makes the difference.
