Laser Hair Removal ~ 7 Common Myths Debunked

Laser hair removal has become a popular choice for those seeking to reduce unwanted hair. However, there are many myths surrounding this treatment, which has led to confusion and scepticism. In this blog post, we will debunk some of the most common misconceptions about laser hair removal with the help of the advanced Soprano Titanium laser machine, to help you make an informed decision.

Myth 1 ~ Laser hair removal is painful

While some laser hair removal machines can cause discomfort, the Soprano Titanium is described by the manufacturer as being ‘virtually pain-free’. This means that some patients may feel some discomfort, but it is likely to be minor in nature. The Soprano Titanium laser machine, with its ICE Plus Continuous Contact Cooling technology, provides a cool and comfortable experience throughout the session.

Myth 2 ~ It only works on people with fair skin and dark hair

While it is true that laser hair removal has a higher success rate on patients with fair skin and dark hair, significant advancements have been made in this field. Modern laser machines like the Soprano Titanium can accommodate a broader range of skin tones and hair colors, making the treatment more accessible for everyone. While the melanin in dark skin is more sensitive to the heat used in laser treatment, the Soprano Titanium’s SHR method has been clinically proven to be safe for dark skin types. The Soprano Titanium is suitable for blonde, red, and dark hair.

Myth 3 ~ Laser hair removal causes hair to grow back thicker

This myth is entirely false. Laser hair removal targets hair follicles, disrupting their growth without causing any additional or thicker growth. In fact, most patients find that the hair grows back finer and less dense after each session. Consistent treatments lead to progressive hair reduction and smoother skin.

Myth 4 ~ Laser hair removal is not really for men

We would argue otherwise, given the number of male patients we have! Everyone can benefit from laser hair removal. Many men choose this treatment to remove facial hair, hair on shoulders, back, chest, and other areas. The Soprano Titanium laser machine is designed to work effectively on both men and women, addressing their specific needs and concerns.

Myth 5 ~ You’ll see results in just one session

Laser hair removal requires multiple sessions for optimal results. Hair grows in different stages, and the laser targets hair in its active growth stage. Because hair growth cycles vary, it may take up to 6-8 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve the desired outcome. The Soprano Titanium laser machine ensures the best results, with a customised treatment plan based on your hair type, skin tone, and treatment area.

Myth 6 ~ Laser hair removal is not safe

The Soprano Titanium laser machine is FDA approved and uses state of the art technology, ensuring the highest level of safety and precision during the treatment. A skilled and certified practitioner will perform the procedure, further ensuring the safety of the process. Always make sure to choose a reputable clinic with experienced professionals for your treatment.

Myth 7 ~ You can’t get treated if you have a tan

While it’s true that some older laser technologies may not be suitable for tanned skin, the Soprano Titanium laser machine is designed to accommodate various skin tones, including tanned skin. The Soprano Titanium’s SHR method affects the melanin of the skin using a unique method, allowing the procedure to be performed anytime of the year, as well as on tanned skin.
