We’ve all had our troubles when it comes to the battle against body hair — and we may even have taken some extreme measures at times. Our treatments for the removal of unwanted hair on the face and body deliver the beautiful results that you desire. There are a ton of facts and myths spread around online about laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal myths busted once and for all:
1. Shaving your body hair makes it grow coarser. This is false! Untouched body hair is tapered and lies flat, making it feel soft and thin. Shaving the hair blunts its ends and makes it stand up. This makes it feel thicker, but the hair itself is not changed. It’s just an illusion.
2. You risk infection if your technician double dips the wax stick. This holds truth! If you go for a waxing treatment and notice that the technician is about to use a stick that she used on the last client, head for the door. Despite a popular belief that the heat of the wax will kill bacteria on a double-dipped wax stick, it doesn’t.
3. It’s okay to leave a depilatory on longer if you have thicker hair. False! Never leave it on longer than the recommended time or you risk severe inflammation and a red, itchy rash.
4. Pluck a gray hair and three more will grow back in its place. This is totally false. This myth started because gray hair seems to multiple quickly, but there’s no science behind it.
