5 Common Myths About Laser Hair Removal – Daytona Beach Florida
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that offers permanent hair reduction by destroying hair follicles with targeted light pulses. This procedure uses a laser that emits light that will be absorbed by the melanin or pigment in the hair where it’s converted to heat which damages the hair follicles.
Laser hair removal can be used to remove unwanted hair almost anywhere on the body including the bikini line, armpits, legs, or face. Despite the multiple benefits and popularity of laser hair removal, a few common myths about laser hair removal still exist.
At Divine Wellness Medspa, we rely on the most advanced technology to reduce body hair by performing laser hair removal in Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Ormond Beach, and surrounding communities. Schedule an appointment for laser hair removal.
Below we will address 5 common myths about laser hair removal…
Myth: Laser Hair Removal doesn’t work on certain skin tones
While it is true that earlier laser hair removal devices relied solely on the contrast between the skin color and the color of the hair, advances in technology have changed this. Divine Wellness Medspa uses two types of laser treatments to treat all skin types. Cutera xeo® is suitable for all skin types but works best with lighter skin types. The YAG handpiece is ideal for darker skin types.
When you come in for your free consultation, we will create a custom laser hair removal plan that fits your needs, skin tone, and hair color, and will help you achieve desired results.
Myth: Laser Hair Removal is painful
You have probably heard the myth that laser hair removal is painful and feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin. This is not the best analogy because a rubber band snapping against your skin can really hurt. It is true that there is mild discomfort involved with the treatment, but advances in technology have made laser hair removal virtually pain-free.
We can apply a topical numbing cream before your laser hair removal treatment if you are sensitive to possible discomfort, but most of our patients do not require it.
Myth: Laser Hair Removal is not permanent
It is true that laser hair removal does not produce complete hair removal after a single treatment. With more treatments, it can be a completely permanent solution. This requires that every hair follicle is completely destroyed during treatment. The best way to realize permanent hair removal is to schedule multiple appointments with an experienced practitioner.
There are exceptions, but multiple laser hair removal treatments will sufficiently remove hair for months or even years. Laser hair removal is the best option compared to conventional hair removal techniques.
Myth: Laser Hair Removal is only for women
Some people believe that laser hair removal is only for women, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Men get this treatment too. They benefit greatly from it. A few common areas men receive laser hair removal include:
- Upper lip
- Bikini area
Divine Wellness Medspa has lots of treatments for men, including, Laser Tattoo Removal, spa and facials, and of course Laser Hair Removal.
Myth: Laser Hair Removal is expensive
If you compare a lifetime of waxing, shaving, and plucking to the cost of laser hair removal, then it is clear that the treatment is cost-effective.
The cost of laser hair removal in Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach starts at $69 per session for facial laser hair removal and $79 to $450 per session for hair removal on the body. This depends on the treatment area. Divine Laser Medspa accepts most forms of payment as well as financing. We also run numerous specials and offer discounts so that laser hair removal is affordable for everyone.
