08 Feb, 2016 – The average price for a laser hair removal procedure may vary, but it’s the worry of paying a price too heavy that raises concerns of safety for many. Linking radiation to any laser therapy and conjuring up nightmares full of carcinogens that affect your decisions regarding laser hair removal isn’t an uncommon thought. If that were so, this phenomena would be under the tightest of scrutiny ever to be imagined eventually leading to the shutdown and sealing of the fate for laser therapy altogether. However, not everyone is qualified to undergo the Laser Hair Removal Therapy owing to their hair type.
In order to fully understand whether one must have hesitations regarding the procedures or not, let us understand what risks do actually lead to developing carcinogens leading to malignant cancers. All electronic items irradiate at a certain frequency that are completely harmless unless one doesn’t decidedly choose to live in a two mile radius surrounding high intensity electricity supplying pylons.
The causes of cancer can both be natural and man-made. High frequency radiation that is able to ionize is dangerous, such as X-rays or gamma rays or through radon gas. In a nuclear power plant or during a CT scan, these rays are produced to either make energy or for medical imaging purposes, respectively. It is when such radiation passes through the body it can cause damage to one’s DNA and potentially lead to cancer later on.
However, it was regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), when laser procedure began and was proven safe, that laser energy in hair removal procedures use non-ionizing radiation. The purpose is only to make hair follicles inactive. Still, it is a concern to treat areas near reproductive organs. Yet, experts believe that there isn’t additional risk.
“The light energy from these lasers actually remains at the upper levels of the skin,” Dr. Whitney Bowe, a dermatologist in New York City related. “These lasers don’t cause DNA damage that cause DNA mutations.”
“The light used does not penetrate beyond the depths of the hair follicle and internal organs are in no way affected, nor is fertility,” Dr. Konstantin Zakashansky, a gynecologic-oncologist at The Mount Sinai Hospital said.
In words of Dr. Edward Fruitman, founder of Trifecta Med Spa & Wellness, “the only risk that can come out of laser hair removal therapy is of discoloration of the skin of the treated area, scarring or redness of the skin in which case, several known and safe remedies can soothe the treated area and immediately seeking treatment after a session such as icing the affected area. Ibuprofen or Aleve to relieve swelling and redness works in a majority of cases. However, before jumping to conclusions have a diagnosis with your doctor to consult with your Laser Hair Removal Therapist to adjust the session to match your comfort.”
Dr. Edward Fruitman added, “We are using LightSheer® INFINITY™ Laser which does not harm at all. That’s why you can compare the laser services of Trifecta Med Spa & Wellness with any facility.”
For people looking to stick with more traditional hair removal methods, Dr. Edward Fruitman recommends shaving over waxing for it has the highest risk of in-grown hair that may lead to painful sebum accumulation, eventually getting infected with MRSA.
