Common myths about Laser Hair Removal

by Anjali Gupta Dermatologist
Nowadays, laser hair removal has been becoming immensely popular among men. It is one of the most sought after cosmetic procedures. Not only the procedure is long-lasting and useful, but also it is safe for every skin type. Earlier, laser technology was not so advanced, so the procedure was used for fair skin people with black hair. Now, the spectrum of laser has expanded and the procedure has become suitable for almost every skin and hair type. However, it is recommended to consult a certified dermatologist whether he/she is a suitable candidate for the procedure or not and also set realistic expectations. Get the best laser hair removal in Delhi at Dr. Nivedita Dadu’s Dermatology Clinic, where the treatments are provided with the application of the latest laser technology and exert laser technicians under the guidance of skin specialist, Dr. Nivedita Dadu.

Besides its multiple advantages, people still feel reluctant to opt for the procedure due to certain myths associated with it.

Myth 1: Laser hair removal is a painful procedure
Fact: Laser hair removal is a comfortable procedure. The patient might feel the sensation of a rubber band snapping on the face or nothing at all, depending on an individual’s tolerance for pain. Also, the laser used these days for hair removal has a cooling mechanism, so the heat generated with the laser is countered with the cooling effect. Thus, the patient does not feel any discomfort. Numbing cream and cooling gel are also applied over the target area for a completely painless experience. 
Myth 2: Laser hair removal is not for darker skin types
Fact: Thanks to the growing awareness around inclusivity and advances in technology, now laser hair removal has become suitable for darker skin types as well. The ideal candidate for laser hair removal has traditionally been someone with fair skin and dark hair. With the help of advanced lasers, the procedure has become more safe and precise for a wide range of skin tones. Nd:YAG laser has become increasingly popular as the wavelength of this laser goes deeper into the skin, so it can more successfully bypass the pigmentation present in the skin. This makes the procedure the safest and effective option for dark skin color.

Myth 3: Laser hair removal makes the skin dark
Fact: Laser used at appropriate settings only targets the hair follicles present underneath the skin. The laser does not affect the surrounding skin at all. Immediately after the procedure, one may experience slight color pigmentary changes on the skin of the target area, but these changes fade over time, and the skin retains its original color.

Myth 4: Laser Hair Removal causes more hair to grow
Fact: Every individual has their own hair growth patterns. Therefore some people require a few sessions while others require more. But with each session of laser hair removal, the hair starts to become thinner and ultimately stops growing. So, the laser does not cause new hair growth, as it prevents new hair follicles from growing. 

Myth 5: Laser provides permanent hair removal in a single session
Fact: It is impossible to get permanent results in a single session. The hair grows take place in several phases. The laser can destroy the hair follicles when it is in the anagen phase (growing phase). Therefore, the dermatologist recommends the patients take multiple sessions to destroy hair follicles from the target area completely. The number of sessions depends upon the type of skin and hair. Thus, the number of sessions may vary from person to person.
