Myths are a part and parcel of anything new that comes to the market, be it a product or a service. It is a myth that can create such hype about any product or service making it either too desirable or too much loathed by the public. Thus, veiling the truth and facts about that thing.

Laser hair removal in Melbourne is one such service that has weaved a lot of myths around itself. Due to these myths, people are unable to make correct decisions about whether to go for this treatment or not. 

So let us bust some of these myths today. Read on.

Myth 1: Laser Therapy causes infertility
Fact: Laser hair removal has no effects on a person’s fertility because the laser beam used for hair removal works only on the surface. It does not reach any internal organs. However, the effects of laser treatment on pregnant and nursing mothers are still not fully known. Doctors advise against getting laser hair removal if you are pregnant or planning to conceive.
Also, due to hormonal changes, hair growth pattern changes after childbirth. Hence it’s better to take such treatments after childbirth and are done with breastfeeding.

Myth 2: Laser Hair Removal Can Cause Cancer
Fact: Laser hair removal does not cause any kind of cancer. This is because the laser radiations used in laser treatments are not high-intensity beams or high UV radiation. Hence they cannot penetrate deep into the skin surface thus making laser hair removal in Melbourne absolutely safe procedure. It’s the high energy radiation that can cause cancer by damaging DNA. The only thing required is that it must be carried out under expert medical supervision.

Myth 3: Laser Hair Removal Is Painful
Fact: The fact is that laser therapy is the least painful hair removal method among other methods like waxing, tweezing and plucking. The patient may only feel a pin-prink sensation or little heat. And to minimize this discomfort, certified laser practitioners use cooling gels and anesthetic ointments on the area before the procedure. Hair removal done at laser clinics in Melbourne is a safe and secure way of getting rid of unwanted hair from your body without the risk of getting wounds and cuts.

Myth 4: More Dense And Frequent Hair Growth
Fact: The fact is that laser damages and destroys hair follicles of the treated area from which hair grows. After several sessions, hair growth in the treated area is reduced by 10% - 25% and the hair that grows back is actually thinner and finer than before. 

Myth 5: Permanent Hair Removal In One Session
Fact: The truth around this myth is that people undergo laser hair removal only to get rid of unwanted hair for good. But this cannot be achieved in one session only. At least 4-6 sessions are required to destroy the hair follicles completely in the targeted areas. The number of sessions required also depends on the type of hair, rate of hair growth and other factors too.


Laser hair removal is one of the easiest and effective ways to get rid of unwanted hair from your body permanently. Since this treatment is subjected to your skin and body which are unique, one must consult the doctors of their chosen laser clinic in Melbourne before undergoing any laser therapy and clear out all the doubts pertaining to it. This will help them make an informed decision and not regret it later.
