Smooth Skin is for Every Body: Debunking 5 Laser Hair Removal Myths


The choice to rock or wreck body hair is completely personal and your own business. There are many reasons someone chooses to wear their hair with pride, but there are just as many reasons to get it gone for good.

If you prefer the smooth-as-a-dolphin look, you've likely tried some outdated methods. Waxing hurts and causes ingrown hairs. Tweezing is tedious and irritates your skin. Electrolysis is time-consuming and extremely painful. Shaving takes up your precious time and causes razor burn and bumps. Laser hair removal has entered the chat. And it's for everyone.

We sat down with Miami's laser hair removal experts at Milan Laser Hair Removal to learn more about how it works and address some myths you may have heard. If you're done pulling and plucking, let's get into it!

1.) Myth: "Laser hair removal only works on certain skin tones."

Fact: When the FDA cleared laser hair removal in the '90s, many thought it was only safe for individuals with fair skin and dark hair. Not anymore! Laser technology has advanced, and laser hair removal is safe and effective for all skin tones. The Candela GentleMax Pro used at Milan Laser Hair Removal contains two technologies: the Nd:YAG laser for deeper skin tones and the Alexandrite laser for lighter skin tones. Tailored treatments mean safety and the best results possible.

2.) Myth: "Results from laser hair removal are temporary."

Fact: Results from at-home laser hair removal devices can be temporary - if you even get any! But when performed correctly, results from professional, in-clinic laser hair removal sessions are permanent. The laser targets, heats, and destroys the hair follicle so the hair can never grow again.

Some hair follicles also stay dormant for years and can become active again due to age, hormonal changes, and genetics. No need to worry. At Milan Laser Hair Removal, every purchase includes the industry's only Unlimited Package™. You get all the treatments you need at any time with no extra charges. The package goes with you to any of their 330+ locations nationwide - did we mention Milan Laser Hair Removal is the nation's largest laser hair removal provider?

3.) Myth: "Laser hair removal is painful."

Fact: Okay, this one is kind of true. But hear us out. There's no hair removal method that's completely pain-free. Everyone knows waxing and electrolysis are the worst – hot wax on the skin, ripping hair out? A needle going directly into your hair follicle with an electric current? No thanks. Plus, waxing causes painful, annoying ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal stings like a rubber band snap for just a second. Milan Laser Hair Removal lovingly refers to this sensation as "spicy." The Candela GentleMax Pro works alongside the Air-cooling Chiller that cuts way down on discomfort, so you've got this.

4.) "Laser hair removal is expensive."

Fact: Let's set a scenario: you buy a cheap sweater. It falls apart after a few washes. You pay to replace cheap clothes over and over because they can be poorly made. But if you spend a little extra on top quality and materials, you don't have to keep buying the same clothing! Laser hair removal is the same – an investment instead of an expense.

The average person who regularly shaves their legs spends around $10,000 over a lifetime on razors, shaving cream, and exfoliants. If you wax your bikini area, you'll pay over $18,000 for a lifetime of salon appointments – all that money for temporary results. In addition to Milan Laser Hair Removal's unlimited treatments for one affordable price and guaranteed results, they offer payment plans to fit anyone's monthly budget.

5.) "Laser hair removal is more inconvenient than shaving and at-home devices."

Fact: Sure, those at-home devices seem easy. You can use them anytime, anywhere. But unless you're a contortionist, reaching those tough spots will be challenging. The laser hair removal experts at Milan Laser Hair Removal zap everything safely and thoroughly. Plus, treatments are fast. You can get your lower legs and underarms treated in just 30 minutes. Go after work, on your lunch break, on weekends – you're in and out and can go on with your day!
