This is not a safe procedure at all.

Fact: You don’t need to be worried about your safety when getting it done on your skin because the procedure is 100% safe. You will not get any kind of complications. Also, the side-effects are minor and temporary. Skincare specialists are assured about its safety because it is approved by the FDA. Still, you should hire a practitioner, who uses an FDA-accredited laser. In this way, the chances of getting minimal risks turn to zero.

Myth# 2:

You will get an increase in hair growth after the procedure.

Fact: This statement is far from reality. If this was the truth, people might have undergone it to grow their hair. The hair growth pattern is different in every person. Numerous internal and external factors play their role in hair growth. Hormonal changes can also make the process of hair growth fast. For example, some people start to grow more hair when they become older. On the other hand, some people start to get a reduction in their hair growth as they age. However, one session is not enough to get rid of unwanted hair completely. It is just a start. You have to get multiple sessions of laser treatment to get the desired result.

Myth# 3:

The effectiveness of laser is equal for all kinds of hair.

Fact: You will be amazed to know that the fact is totally opposite to this statement. Laser hair removal is not effective for all types of hair. The type and texture of hair differ from one person to another. You will get wonderful results on thick hair. Also, the laser works best for black hair. To clarify, if your hairs are dark and thick and skin color is light, you have a perfect combination to get outstanding results.

Myth#4 :

To get amazing results, only one session is enough.

Fact: The truth is different. You have to get multiple sessions to get the desired results. Only one session cannot provide you with the best results. Actually, some of your hair may remain in the sleeping state in one session and laser cannot hit them in that session. The laser just hits active hair. So, multiple sessions will make it possible to hit all hairs on the targeted skin area.
