Laser Hair Reduction – Facts v/s Myth:
Does using laser for hair reduction, make the skin dark?
Quick answer: No. The skin will not become dark if the equipment used is appropriate for Indian skin. About Face uses US-FDA approved Alma Soprano Laser, which is the gold standard in LHR, and is tested and suitable for Indian skin.
How does laser cause hair reduction?
The hair removal laser emits a light at a specific wavelength that is known to be absorbed by the pigment/color in the hair follicle, without damaging the surrounding skin. The light is converted into heat energy, which in turns disables the hair follicle, which renders the reduction of hair.
The thicker hair on the chin will slowly and gradually become thinner and finer.
Will the hair regrow in a couple of years?
Post laser hair reduction the hair becomes finer, and the hair that regrows will be finer. However certain factors like heredity, ethnic background, endocrine disorders, and irregular menstrual cycles can cause re-growth. This can occur after a few years, and a few sessions of laser hair reduction are recommended at that point.
When you shave hair, pre-laser, will the hair become thicker or regrow faster?
No, the hair will neither become thicker nor will it regrow faster.
Isn’t laser expensive? Won’t it be cheaper to wax or shave instead?
Laser is not expensive, especially when you look at the long-term expenses of waxing, and factor in the value of your time. Certainly, there is an up-front expenditure for a series of laser treatments – but you quickly get a return on your investment, along with achieving your goal of highly precise hair reduction!
