There is a lot of stigma and worry when it comes to the topic Untitled design
of laser hair removal.

Some people love the treatment and some just don’t know what is true or false, but there’s no denying it’s a popular laser skin treatment. Let’s go through some of some the most frequently heard laser hair removal myths.


It’s not safe

Laser hair removal is extremely safe when done correctly at a laser skin clinic, and the right procedures are in place. The red light that appears from the laser is extremely powerful. If this red light is exposed to the naked eye, it can potentially blind or burn, which is why it’s so important to choose a qualified and experienced clinician to carry out your treatment. We give our clients protective goggles to prevent this from ever happening, and ask you to wear these for the duration of the treatment. In addition, the strength of the laser is carefully adjusted to avoid burns, and we keep the air at a cool temperature to prevent the laser from irritating the skin.

Dark skin won’t benefit from laser hair removal 

This is old news. A long time ago, laser skin clinic equipment used couldn’t respond to darker skin, however in this day and age we have higher and more advanced technology that can react to any skin colour. So almost anyone can receive laser hair removal, and on most body parts. Always check that your practitioner has the most up-to-date systems before procedures and make sure they are fully registered and qualified – as with us, at The Private Skin Laser Clinic.

Laser hair removal causes the hair to grow denser and more frequently

Laser hair removal does quite the opposite, by helping to supress the hair growth of hair follicles. By doing this, it should decrease the density, thickness and growth rate of hair. Laser hair removal is never considered permanent, but does help the hair to grown back much thinner and at a slower speed. Receiving further sessions at our laser skin clinic will increase your chances of having silky-smooth legs all year round. To take care of your treated area, it’s advised to use a light, fragrance-free moisturiser to prevent any skin from peeling.
