Despite the rising popularity of laser hair removal, particularly in Los Angeles, there are still a few myths that persist which unfortunately stop some women from trying it. These include concerns about the price, safety, and the pain associated with the treatment. In this article, we set the record straight as it concerns laser hair removal, once and for all. The results of laser hair removal are truly remarkable and undeniably effective, serving as the main reason why many women have said put away their razors and said goodbye to waxing for good.
Myth #1: Laser Hair Removal is Super Expensive
Many women believe laser hair removal is outrageously expensive, but this is simply not the case! While laser hair removal might have been quite pricey in the early 2000s when it was first introduced, as it has gotten more common, the price of the treatment has dropped tremendously. For example, at the Z Center for Cosmetic Health, prices for laser hair removal start as low as $60. In the long run, you’ll actually end up saving more money without having to purchase razors or wax. Also, the time it saves you is quite priceless.
Myth #2: Laser Hair Treatments are Not Safe
For one reason or another, some people have assumed that laser hair removal is dangerous with many associated risks. This can be true if performed by inexperienced providers. However, done by someone who is experienced, laser hair removal is very safe. This is why it is so important to have laser hair removal treatments performed under the supervision of a physician. The most common side effect of laser hair removal is slight skin redness which typically disappears within a couple of hours. And not only are there minimal side effects, laser hair removal requires zero downtime.
Myth #3: The Pain is Unbearable
For some, the thought of lasers on your skin conjures up pain. Not all laser devices are created equal, and some are more painful than others. But, if you ask anyone who has had laser hair removal at the Z Center for Cosmetic Health they will tell you otherwise. This is because we use the state-of-the-art LightSheer DUET laser hair removal machine which has a cooling mechanism that makes the process virtually pain-free. In fact, the process is so pain-free, that not a drop of topical numbing cream is needed.
