This is an intelligent way to deceit partially informed educated people. Lasers do not reach your internal organs so the question of causing damage is not even an issue.

Therefore, there is no damage done to your body during the treatment. It is an easy and safe way to get rid of unwanted hair.

No! This treatment is not painful. You will experience a little tickle and the hair is gone. Patients who have been waxing or tweezing find this procedure virtually painless. You might experience a little burn and discomfort during the treatment. This pain is under a patients threshold limit. You can also make the treatment painless by requesting your doctor to numb the area before the procedure with topical anesthetic so that you feel no pain whatsoever.

Myth#3: The Procedure Is Not Suitable For Dark Skin and Light Hair

Initially when laser technology premiered, it was risky to treat dark skin, but not anymore. After the latest developments, radiations are set according to skin and hair type. There are various considerations including skin type, skin texture, epidermis thickness, hair type, hair thickness and hair penetration.

Myth#4: Laser Hair Removal Is Only For Face

Lasers are useful in removing hair on any part of the body from head to toe. Facial skin is softer so a low radiation is set as compared to other body parts.
