Allura uses laser skin treatments in Fort Collins ranging the CO2 Dot Therapy, Fraxel, Fotofacial, Thermage, and Laser Veins to treat all manner of skin conditions. Laser treatment is used to safely remove unwanted or excess hair on any part of the body thereby considerably reducing the time spent on waxing, threading and plucking of body hair.

Today we’re taking a look at some myths surrounding laser skin treatments and shining the light on misconceptions.

  1. Laser hair reduction is harmful to health; laser affects internal organs and can damage them. False! The depth of laser penetration is 1-4 mm, it reaches only the hair follicles, and then is completely dissipated and does not penetrates deeper! Laser destroys only the hair bulb. The laser beam which slides on the surface of the skin does not damage it.
  2. Laser hair reduction is expensive. On the contrary, laser hair reduction is a lifelong investment. Consider how much money a woman usually spends during a year to buy tools for depilation (waxing, tools, creams, foams, etc.).
  3. Laser hair reduction hurts. A little pin-prick, that’s all the pain involved in this service. But this depends on individual pain barrier. For particularly sensitive parts on the body (bikini, underarms), an anaesthetic cream can be used. If your pain threshold is less, then anesthetic cream can be applied everywhere.
  4. Laser treatments expose your skin to infections. Laser treatments don’t cause infections as the skin is not cut open to expose the internal layers or veins. There is very little risk of infection as the treatment’s nature is very different.
