Laser hair removal is a popular method of hair removal, but many people wonder does laser hair removal cause cancer? And let’s be honest, sceptics do like to create a level of fear and convince you that laser isn’t safe. So let’s take closer look at the facts and science behind laser hair removal and cancer.
Does laser hair removal cause cancer?
First and foremost, there is no scientific evidence to suggest that laser hair removal causes cancer. The technology used in laser hair removal targets the hair follicle and doesn’t penetrate deep enough to affect internal organs or cause cancer.
In fact, laser hair removal is considered a safe and effective method of hair removal by the FDA. The lasers used for hair removal are specifically designed to target the pigment in hair follicles. And don’t produce harmful radiation that could cause cancer.
Reduced risk of skin cancer from laser hair removal
Furthermore, laser hair removal can actually reduce the risk of skin cancer. By removing hair from the skin, it can help to reduce the risk of skin cancer by preventing the accumulation of UV radiation on the skin’s surface.
In addition, laser hair removal can also help to detect skin cancer early by removing hair from the affected area and allowing for easier detection of any changes or abnormalities on the skin.
If ever in any doubt you should speak to your treatment provider
Overall, there is no scientific evidence to suggest that laser hair removal causes cancer. On the contrary, laser is considered a safe and effective method of hair removal.
