It is often heard that laser removal cannot be done in summer due to the sun rays on the skin and also to some extent because of the sweat. It is said that the UV rays of the sun already harms our skin so laser is not recommended. But it is proven as a myth.

Harmed by radiation:

Permanently removes hair:

No, laser removal treatment does not remove hair permanently. Rather, it reduces the growth of hair to such a minimum level that it is the same as no hair on your body. But to be noted, according to hormonal changes which depends upon the hair growth, it may show some hair growth too or opposite.
