10 Facts about Laser Hair Removal You Didn’t Know About

Laser hair removal is a popular choice for those looking for long-term hair removal. Laser hair removal has become a popular cosmetic procedure in recent years. It involves using a laser to destroy the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing back. The procedure is safe, effective, and relatively painless. It can be used to remove hair from any part of the body, including the face, legs, arms, and bikini line. However, there are some facts about laser hair removal that you may not know. Here are 10 facts about laser hair removal.

10 Facts about Laser Hair Removal You Didn't Know About

1. Laser hair removal alone doesn’t work on blonde, gray, and red or ginger hair.

Laser hair removal is a popular method for hair removal, but it doesn’t work on all hair colors. Blonde, gray, and red or ginger hair are difficult to remove with laser treatments. The light from the laser is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, so these lighter colors don’t absorb enough light to be effective. If you have these hair colors, you’ll need to find another method of hair removal.

There is a reason why laser technician strongly advise clients to not ever bleach their hair before a session. Or just in general. Bleaching remove the color pigment in the hair. As previously mentioned, the color pigment in the hair is what attracts the light energy produced by the laser machine. If there is no pigment to target, laser hair removal will not work.

If you have light hair, you need to consider specialised hair removal. You can consider hair removal technologies such as SHR Diode laser and Nd:YAG lasers as they can effectively target lighter and coloured hairs.

2. Laser Hair Removal does not cause Cancer

Laser hair removal has become a popular method for hair removal, but there is still some debate about its safety. Some people worry that the laser energy used in the procedure could increase the risk of skin cancer. However, there is no evidence to support this claim. In fact, laser hair removal is actually considered to be a very safe procedure. The risks of developing cancer from laser hair removal are extremely low.

3. Laser hair removal does not cause infertility.

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated light to penetrate the hair follicle and destroy the hair from the root. It is a popular treatment for unwanted facial and body hair, but there is a common misconception that laser hair removal can cause infertility. This is not true. There is no evidence to suggest that laser hair removal causes infertility.

4. Laser hair removal is generally safe on the skin

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to remove unwanted hair. The laser targets the pigment in the hair and destroys the follicle, which prevents future growth. Laser hair removal is generally safe on the skin, but there are a few possible side effects that you should be aware of before undergoing treatment. These include temporary redness, swelling, and inflammation of the treated area.

5. You cannot do Laser Hair Removal everyday

Laser hair removal is a popular beauty treatment, but it’s important to know that you cannot do it every day. The laser targets the pigment in the hair, so it needs to be done when the hair is in the growth phase. That means you’ll need to wait at least eight weeks between treatments. And even then, you may not see the full effect of the laser for several months. So if you’re looking for a quick fix, laser hair removal is not the answer.

6. IPL and laser hair removal do NOT produce the same results.

If you are considering IPL (intense pulsed light) or laser hair removal, it is important to know that these two treatments are not the same and will not produce the same results. IPL uses a broad spectrum of light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft. This causes the hair follicle to heat up and destroys the cells that produce hair. Laser hair removal uses a single wavelength of light that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft.

7. Laser hair removal takes 6 to 8 sessions to see visible results

Laser hair removal takes 6 to 8 sessions to see visible results. This treatment method uses a concentrated beam of light to target the hair follicle. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, which destroys the hair. Laser hair removal is most effective on dark hair and light skin. It can be used to remove hair from the face, legs, arms, bikini line, and other areas of the body. For certain areas such as the face and private areas, 12 sessions or more are sometimes needed.

8. Home-use laser devices are NOT as effective as medical-grade lasers for hair removal

Home-use lasers for hair removal are not as effective as medical-grade lasers. The devices emit lower-energy pulses and have a larger spot size than medical lasers. This means that the home-use laser will take longer to remove hair, and may not be as effective at removing all of the hair. In addition, home-use lasers are not as safe as medical lasers, and can cause burns or other injuries if not used properly.

9. SHR Hair Removal is Effective for All Skin and Hair Colours

SHR diode hair removal is an effective method for all skin and hair types. It uses a low level of energy to slowly heat the hair follicles, which damages the hair shaft and prevents future growth. The treatment is comfortable and safe for all skin types, and there is no risk of burns or other side effects. SHR diode hair removal is a great option for those who are looking for a permanent solution to unwanted hair.

SHR or Super Hair Removal technology is a newer technology as compared to IPL. Developed by Alma Lasers, SHR combines 755nm, 808nm and 1064nm laser wavelengths to target all skin types. In addition, simultaneous contact cooling prevents burns and allows for a more comfortable treatment.

10. You must shave prior to your laser hair removal appointment

If you’re considering laser hair removal, you might be wondering if you need to shave before your appointment. The answer is yes! Shaving the treatment area prior to your appointment will help the laser target the hair follicle and provide more effective results. Plus, it’ll help prevent any discomfort during the treatment. So make sure to grab a razor and get shaving before your next laser hair removal appointment!
