As med spa technology advances, skin care experts are able to perform even more effective treatments. By 2021, the global skincare market is projected to reach $154 billion. Within this fast growing field, laser hair removal is one of the most popular treatments. Unfortunately, there are several misconceptions about laser hair removal that many people still believe. The following are some of the most common myths that you should watch out for.
- Laser hair removal is painful.
While everyone has a different pain tolerance, laser hair treatments do not generally cause pain. You will likely feel some mild discomfort during and shortly after the process, but this treatment is generally tolerable. This is why med spas should perform this treatment; they know how to set the laser properly.
- This laser treatment will damage my skin.
If you see one of the skin care professionals at Savola Aesthetic Dermatology, you will not leave with damaged skin. They will perform the procedure properly and advise you if you are not a candidate for this treatment.
- I might suffer harmful side effects from treatment.
Most people have red and swollen skin after treatment, but you will likely not have any more side effects than that. However, if you do have concerns over potential side effects, again, this is exactly why it’s important to see a professional for the procedure.
- Laser hair removal is a permanent solution.
Some cheap salons will advertise hair removal as a miracle solution, but this is simply not the case. Most people will require multiple treatments. Time between treatments will vary based on hair texture, so talk to your med spa about when you should come in again and how long you can expect results to last.
- All laser treatments are the same.
This is one of the most dangerous misconceptions of the bunch. Unless you receive treatment from a professional med spa, you might be putting yourself at risk for poor quality hair removal or adverse side effects.
