You are probably one of those people who prefer to get rid of the unwanted hairs that insist on being born by the body. Its main function is beneficial to the body, as it helps to control body temperature and protect the skin from harmful agents. But eliminating them has become synonymous with cleanliness and hygiene.
And, as the longest-lasting method for this elimination, laser hair removal has dominated the preference of those seeking excellent results.
But, like any aesthetic procedure, it is normal that some doubts arise about this theme. That’s why we’ve listed the most common questions below and we’ll explain one by one to you!
Does laser hair removal work from the very first session?
Yea! The results of laser hair removal can already be seen from the very first session . But calm down, don’t be thinking that after the first session you will be hair free. The hair destruction process is gradual with each session, so usually up to 10 sessions are indicated, depending on the area and type of hair.
Laser hair removal is a progressive process, as the hairs are “destroyed” when they are in the growth phase. Even in an area with few wires, not everyone is growing at the same time. Therefore, at each session, only a number of hairs are eliminated.
Is the laser method definitive?
However long the results may be, it is incorrect to call laser hair removal definitive. This is because, due to hormonal factors, some hairs, even if few, can re-grow. Therefore, periodic maintenance sessions are recommended to inhibit this new growth.
For the results to be as long-lasting as possible, it is very important to choose the right technology and a good professional to carry out the treatment.

Does laser hair removal hurt?
This issue varies a lot according to the patient’s sensitivity, as some are more resistant and others more intolerant of pain. But, because it works with light waves that cause a thermal effect on the skin, laser hair removal does cause some discomfort.
But the uncomfortable feeling is only felt during the session. In the period after the procedure, it does not happen. What can sometimes occur is redness and irritation, in some cases, especially in more sensitive people.
This sensation, in addition to varying according to sensitivity, also varies according to the equipment and technology used, as some are already created thinking about minimizing pain and increasing comfort during the session, as is the case with the Laser Crystal 3D , which it has a unique local cooling system, which causes an anesthetic effect on the skin.
Pregnant can do laser hair removal?
As there are no scientific studies that prove the harm of laser hair removal in pregnant women, this is a very controversial topic. It is known that the laser has a superficial penetration into the skin, reaching only millimeters beyond the epidermis, which does not pose a risk to the baby.
However, during pregnancy, the woman’s body is totally altered and the increase in hormones makes there a greater risk of hyperpigmentation in the region.
For those pregnant women who wish to undergo laser depilation sessions, it is most recommended to be guided by the obstetrician regarding the benefits and possible contraindications, according to each case.
Who breastfeeds can undergo laser hair removal?
The laser hair removal is a procedure released for breastfeeding . The light emitted during treatment has no effect on the quality of breast milk, nor does it interfere with its quantity.
What is not indicated is the use of anesthetic ointments, which some women use to minimize the discomfort of the session, as their substances can affect the milk. In these cases, the trained professional should guide the breastfeeding woman about what can and cannot be used.
Is laser hair removal treatment bad?
The equipment available today for laser hair removal is very safe and does not harm the patient’s health. What is very important for the session to be really risk-free is choosing a good professional to carry it out, since the application part is essential for the success and safety of the treatment.
As much as the equipment is completely safe and efficient, if the treatment is carried out by untrained professionals, there are risks of complications such as burns, for example.
Following the professional’s recommendations before and after treatment is also essential so that there are no risks.
Does hair removal resolve folliculitis?
Folliculitis is inflammation of the hair follicles, structures in which hairs are born and grow. This inflammation is caused by bacterial, fungal, viral or even inflammation of ingrown hairs. This skin problem manifests itself in the shape of small red dots, protruding that may also have pus, looking like small pimples.
As it is a problem that affects the hair, when removing them through laser hair removal, folliculitis can indeed be attenuated , or even eliminated, causing a great relief for those who suffer from this problem, which can cause itching and pain in the affected region.
Is laser hair removal on black skin possible?
It is yes! In the past, laser hair removal on black skin was quite risky. This was because the laser is made to be attracted by the melanin of the hair and, in people with a higher phototype, the skin also contains a large concentration of melanin. This made it very difficult for the laser to work and caused a skin burn.
But, nowadays, there are more modern equipments in which it is possible to regulate the length and intensity of the light . In this way, they allow treatments to be efficient and safe for any type of skin.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
As stated above, the sensation of pain varies from person to person. The intimate region is usually more sensitive than the others. In addition, the hairs in the region are thicker, which makes the laser more absorbed by the hair’s melanin. This can indeed make the discomfort greater.
But, on the other hand, because the absorption is greater, the treatment in this region has faster and more noticeable results with fewer sessions.
Can I use anesthetic ointment for laser hair removal?
If the patient is less tolerant of the sensation caused during the laser hair removal session, he can use anesthetic ointments in the area where the treatment will be performed.
The type of ointment must be indicated by the professional responsible for the treatment, as well as its form of application so that its effect is maximum during the session.
Ointments can minimize discomfort, but in some more modern equipment, there are alternatives that cool the skin and numb the region, to make the session as comfortable as possible, such as the Laser Crystal 3D , for example.
Does laser hair removal give cancer?
That’s one of the main myths when it comes to laser hair removal . The light used in this method of long-lasting hair removal is harmless and does not run the risk of damaging the cells’ DNA – this damage is what leads to the emergence of cancer, as with x-ray and ultra-violet radiation, for example.
The light used in laser hair removal does not penetrate the deeper layers and is focused to destroy only the hair’s melanin, thus leaving the other structures around it intact.
Does this method of hair removal burn your skin?
The risk of burns only exists due to application error, when the professional applies a higher power than indicated or for a longer time than supported in the region.
Therefore, it is very important to choose a good professional when performing the treatment.

Waxing makes your skin dark?
In normal situations no! The laser hair removal can cause stains and leave darker skin only in cases where there are complications, such as burns.
On the other hand, other depilation methods (such as wax, razor and depilatory creams) have more chances of darkening the region, as they can cause friction, injury, irritation and friction in the shaved area. This can cause, as long-term consequences, hyperchromia (localized increase in skin tone).

Does laser hair removal lighten the skin?
The purpose of laser hair removal is not to lighten the skin, but to eliminate hair. But, the reduction of hair causes other hair removal methods that are villainous for darkening the skin, such as those mentioned above, to stop being used. This makes the aggressions to the skin in the region decrease and the tendency is for it to have a more even tone.
