Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

4 Common Laser Hair Removal Myths Debunked

by Michelle Austin

If you're considering laser hair removal, you're probably beginning to do your research. Laser hair removal can be a great option for many individuals. Below are four common myths associated with laser hair removal and the truths behind them.

Myth: Hair Removed By a Laser Is Permanently Gone

While laser hair removal can help to reduce the amount of hair that regrows, your hair will not be permanently gone.

Unfortunately, there are no methods available that result in permanent hair removal. Whether you shave, wax, pluck, or have it removed with a laser, hair will always return. If you'd like to keep your body as hair free as possible, it's recommended you receive multiple treatments, spaced out as recommended by the specialist performing the treatment.

Myth: Laser Pubic Hair Removal Can Lead to Infertility

The lasers used for hair removal use concentrated beams of light to specifically target hair follicles.

Since the lasers used during the removal process only target the pigment of the follicle, there is absolutely no risk to internal organs. The laser isn't strong enough to get through the multiple layers of skin, fat, and other tissues to affect your reproductive organs in anyway.

Myth: Laser Hair Removal is Too Painful to Be Worth It

The level of pain felt during the treatment will depend entirely on the patient and the area being treated. Pain levels can also be affected by the type of laser being used.

If you're particularly concerned about pain levels, consider having a small patch done to see how well you'll tolerate the treatment. For many, the slight discomfort felt during the procedure is more than bearable for the benefits associated with the treatment.

Myth: Laser Hair Removal Can Only be Performed on Those with Light Skin

Thanks to advances in technology, laser hair removal is no longer only an option for individuals with light skin pigments.

While laser hair removal for people with dark skin is an option, it is a much more involved process and requires an experienced professional. Seek a professional who specializes in hair removal in women or men with darker skin, and who knows which laser would be best, as well as what to do to prevent any damage during the procedure.

While laser hair removal isn't for everyone, it may be a great option for you. If you'd like to learn more about the procedure, contact a laser hair removal professional, like those at Defy Nature LLC, today. You can set up a consultation to ask your questions and discuss your concerns, as well as learn more about the procedure and what to expect.
