Laser Hair Removal has been a revolutionary technique in beauty. It is comfortable, effective, and quick. It is often discussed and asked many questions in clinics. Is the laser painful? Is the laser permanent? Can I tan with the laser? This post will reveal some of the truths as well as lies about laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal comes with its pros and cons. We think laser hair removal is more beneficial than the cons. But let’s first explain what it is, and how it works. Laser hair removal is a selective photo thermolysis treatment.
However, this method is becoming more popular among the public. There are still many myths surrounding this skincare practice.
It is described as a device that emits a very intense laser using controlled “shots” that are focused in a focus. This light passes through our bodies without damaging them and focuses all its energy on the black structures of the skin, such as the root of the hair growing.
The laser light transforms into heat and penetrates the skin, removing the hair’s follicle and leaving the surface intact. This removes hair from its root. The laser light does not pull the hair out like wax or tweezers. As the hair follicle becomes weaker, the hair ceases growing around the spot where the laser light was applied.
Can you shave after the treatment is complete?
Half true, half false. Yes, we can continue to wax after we have completed the laser hair removal procedure. However, while the treatment is still in effect, you should not use traction methods that pull the hair from its root. To remove the hair, we should epilate. This means that the hair must be cut flush with the skin as the blade does. We will then have the root of the hair intact. This is where the laser light works.
Can’t get a tan?
Fake. Therefore, we want to clear up your concerns. You can tan but you must adhere to some guidelines to not alter the treatment. We say that you can get tanned before, but after you have finished the session, you must wait 15 days before you go to the cabin for the next session. This is because your skin is still sensitive and can become reddened after exposure.
Is the laser possible to be used on the entire body?
Truth. Truth. The laser can be used on any part of the body, including the legs, groin, and armpits. It can also be used on the chest, back, chest, abdomen, buttocks, face, feet, and areolas.
Are the hairs gone forever?
Half true, half false. Although hair growth can be affected by hormonal changes, every person is unique, and each area needs to be treated. Therefore, we must admit that half of this statement is false. Permanently removes hair. However, it is not permanent.
Maintenance sessions are required because with each session, it grows less, weaker, and lighter. The removal results are 80%-90%. Some areas won’t reappear while others can be weakened but not permanently.
