5 Skin Laser Treatment Myths

There are so many skin laser treatment myths, from pain levels to burns and efficacy. With developing technology, laser treatments have gotten incredibly safe, comfortable and fast. Don’t let myths stop you from starting your skin or hair removal journey!

“It will burn me.”

As with any treatment, there are small risks involved, however, this is rare and is a result of a number of factors such as the technician’s skill, and the client’s skin tone. At Arion Skin Laser, our technicians are highly skilled and experienced with our laser machines, and a wide variety of skin types and skin tones. You can rest assured that you are completely safe in our hands.

“It’s Painful”

Most patients report that laser hair removal feels like the snapping of a rubber band. Pain levels depend on your hair’s pigment, thickness, and machine settings. Our machines also have a cooling option that takes away the majority of discomfort. If you are comfortable with or can tolerate the pain of getting waxed, you can most definitely tolerate laser hair removal!

“It doesn’t work.”

If there is anything we are sure about, it’s that skin laser treatment really does work. In our years of practice, we have seen incredible results on both men and women, not only for treatments like laser hair removal but also pigmentation, melasma and vein treatments.

“It’s expensive.”

Although the price tag can seem like a lot at first, do keep in mind that you are saving hundreds and thousands of dollars annually on razors, professional waxing, depilatory creams, and waxing strips. Not to mention no more wasted time, stress and pain. It is a long term investment that will truly change your life.

“It exposes you to radiation.”

Our lasers at Arion Skin Laser don’t emit radiation – you can rest assured that you are completely safe throughout the duration of your treatment.
