MYTH # 1: You Need Treatments Every Six to Eight Weeks Busted: This is not True. You need Laser Hair Removal every 4 weeks.
MYTH # 2: You must shave between treatments. Busted: You do not have to and it is preferred that you do not before your next treatment, so we can give a more accurate hair removal treatment. Preferably not at all and if you do, use an electric razor.
MYTH # 3: Laser Hair Removal works on gray, white and blonde hairs. Busted: The laser is attracted to the color in the hair, so it is not recalled to these hair types. There are many different levels of these colors, so call us or come in for a free consult to see if it will work for you.
MYTH # 4: Expensive Creams Can Darken the Hair at the Root Level. Busted: NOT TRUE. You can not change the root color of your hair so the laser is attracted to it.
MYTH # 5: One Treatment Does the Job Busted: Of course not. Your hair grows in many phases. The amount of treatments will vary depending on many factors, but one treatment is never enough.
MYTH # 6: Intense Pulse Light / Diode works well and is good to use on all skin types. Busted: Not True. Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is only good for light skin types.
MYTH # 7: It is SUPER painful. Busted: Lasers have come a long way since their first invention and approval by the FDA. It is a lot less painful than it once was. It feels similar to having a rubber band snapped. Certain areas will be more painful than others. Some areas will have almost no pain. And the great news is a lot less pain than constantly waxing!
MYTH # 8: There is Messy Gel Everywhere. Busted: There is no gel used for laser hair removal. They used to use it when doing Intense Pulse Light Treatments, but this hair removal technique is not done using lasers and is less effective.
MYTH # 9: My Hair will never grow again! Busted: It could start to grow again. Depending on your age, you can continue to have the hair growth cycle start over again. For some people they will have to repeat the laser hair removal process later on in life.
MYTH # 10: All Lasers are the same. Busted: No they are not. Lasers are very different. The type of laser used and settings available can have a huge affect on the comfort level of the treatment and on the overall effectiveness.
