Top on the list of hair removal myths is that laser treatment and electrolysis will remove unwanted hair for good. There is no technique yet that will remove hair forever. The aim here is to reduce the amount of hair that grows back. This is why it is vital to complete all prescribed sessions for hair removal and to touch up at least 2 times a year to keep hair growth in check.

You were probably told by your Mum or friends that shaving makes the hair grow back coarser. Again, when you shave, you are removing the top part making the tips stiffer. But, it is still basically the same hair. For a smooth shave, make sure to exfoliate your skin to prevent bumps.

Waxing will always hurt like hell all the time is another myth that should be debunked. True, waxing is painful sort of a 'no pain, no gain' story. However, there are ways around it, reducing the pain. For example, do not wax your hair at least 2 weeks after your period when your hormones make you more sensitive to pain. You can also use a numbing agent or a squeeze ball to distract the waves of pain.

Home treatment is the same as going to the salon. This is not really true as home treatment methods are meant for amateur aestheticians using manageable tools. In contrast, the salon uses high powered tools operated by professionals with effective results. Hence, if you want excellent results, then a salon is the answer.
