If you’re not happy with shaving or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorbs the light which destroys the hair. Laser hair removal is a dream come true for many women and men in India. But with all good things come unwanted controversies. We are here to clear the air with all the doubts, lies, and questions that are associated with laser hair removal. Let’s discover the truth behind popular myths!
Myth 1: Laser hair removal is successful only for facial/underarm hair.

Myth 2: Lasers are not safe.
Fact: Laser treatment is a safe procedure to remove unwanted hair as the rays are non-ionizing radiation that only aims on hair roots. Life Clinic follows extreme protocols for laser hair removal to safeguard the process is managed efficiently.
Myth 3: Laser hair removal is expensive.
Fact: A simple calculation will perfectly explode this myth. If you spend 1000/- every month for removing underarm hair through waxing or shaving the average total for five years will be 60000/-. But, if you choose laser then the cost of 6 to 8 sessions will be around 15000 to 18000/- and the results will last for more than 5 years and majorly these 6 to 8 sessions will get completed in 8 to 10 months. So there you have it, the huge difference in cost between the laser and non-laser methods.
Myth 4: Laser hair removal is extremely painful.
Fact: With new upgradations and latest advancement technologies, laser hair removal treatment has become painless and comfortable.

Myth 5: Laser hair removal works on any skin/hair color.

This will totally depends on the thickness and regrowth speed of your hair.
