Here are some of the myths busted related to laser hair removal treatment that one should be aware of:

Myth: Laser hair reduction increases the growth of ingrown hair.
Fact: Ingrown hair are most common after shaving and waxing but certainly not after laser hair reduction treatment. The laser treatment effectively targets the hair follicles and removes the amount of body hair from roots. The laser heat damages the hair bulb, and as a result, the hair does not grow back, and the results are also long-lasting. Hence, this treatment helps to decrease the amount of hair growth.

Myth: Laser, hair reduction treatment, increases the growth of new hair.
Fact: Laser treatment provides hair-free skin by targeting the hair follicles that are in the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle. Thus it helps to reduce the amount of hair growth, and the best thing with this treatment is that the hair starts to become thinner with every session.

Myth: Laser hair reduction treatment is painful.
Fact: Laser hair reduction treatment is less painful than waxing. During the treatment, laser hair reduction treatment, a numbing cream, and cooling gel are applied on the skin. This helps to reduce discomfort cases by laser treatment, and it feels like a rubber band snapping on the skin, and this pain is generally bearable.

Myth: Laser hair reduction can cause scarring and burns.
