Even today, such a common and popular procedure as laser hair removal in Kiev is surrounded by myths. We have collected the most common ones and turned to the cosmetologist of the “Beauty Ray” hardware cosmetology office for reliable information.
Myth #1. No method, including laser hair removal, permanently removes hair.
In fact, laser hair removal is considered a method of radical hair removal, by destroying hair follicles with laser radiation. The root of the myth lies in the fact that part of the hair follicles are in a dormant state (10-15%), while the rest is in the active growth phase. In order to remove all the hair, it is necessary to undergo a series of procedures with an interval of 2 to 8 weeks, depending on the individual characteristics of the hair. Thus, if you have not gone through enough procedures, then yes, the hair will grow back.
Myth #2. Laser hair removal is harmful to health.
The laser beam reaches a depth of approximately 1 – 4 mm, reaching only the hair follicle. Therefore, laser hair removal is safe for health. The root of this myth is most likely that after laser hair removal there is a possibility of redness. However, you can use a nourishing cream or after-sun product and redness will not leave a trace.
Myth #3. There is a chance that scars or ingrown hairs will remain after the procedure.
Scars will not appear, as laser hair removal does not injure the skin.
Regarding ingrown hairs, this is also a delusion. Ingrown hairs can occur with other hair removal methods such as waxing or electrolysis. This procedure, on the contrary, is recommended as a means of combating ingrown hairs.
Myth #4. The high cost of laser hair removal.
This myth remained in the late 90s – early 2000s, when several devices were presented in Kiev, and the procedure was considered “exotic”. Today in Kiev there are many salons that provide this service, and they are forced to compete with each other. So there are promotions and discounts for laser hair removal. So the misconception about the high cost of the procedure is far in the past.
Myth #5. Laser hair removal is a very painful procedure.
Well, this statement is only partially true. Clients who have compared pain to waxing say laser is much more comfortable for them.
Also, everyone’s pain threshold is different. In the cabinet of hardware cosmetology “Ray of Beauty” highly qualified specialists work, who will make the procedure as comfortable as possible for you.
