True that unwanted hair has more to do with mental wellbeing than physical appearance.  Low self-esteem, shying away from social circle is what most people suffer from due to excessive hair growth. . If you think women alone seek solutions for permanent hair removal, probably you’re wrong. Special creams for hair removal are in stock for men too.  They are equally anxious to get rid of unwanted body hair and are opting for same grooming rights as that of women.

Shaving, waxing, tweezing, hair removal creams are few solutions but do they guarantee permanent hair removal or promise hair reduction? All these are tried and tested methods that make you repeat the same practice after a certain interval of time with no permanent solution and cause discomfort.

Myth#1 Increase in growth

Our body is in the constant process of ageing and so there are possibilities of new hair growth alongside hair fall. Laser helps to destroy hair follicles of the existing ones but has no control on the growth of the new ones. Nonetheless it isn’t valid to conclude that laser causes more hair to grow.

Myth 2# Not safe

This depends on the type of laser technology your skin clinic, saloon or spa is using. Until the laser being used is being approved by the dertamotology and skin care authorities, safety should not be a matter of concern.

Nonetheless a regular consultation once in every 6months or once in a year is advisable after the treatment.


Having read through it is also worthwhile to seek consultation of experts to gain a deep insight. Apart from dermatologists there are many professionally certified laser technologists who offer laser treatments at saloons and spa. Certain factors such as nature and type of hair whether coarse or thin, skin type, existing health condition and medications that you are on, do matter before going in for a laser treatment.

The number of sessions required depends again on the nature and type of hair. Whether you’ll have a permanent hair removal or hair reduction? Will skin pigmentation be a concern? Will I have devastating results for my hair and skin type? None other than professionals in skin care can resolve your concerns.
