Disadvantages of Laser over Electrolysis
·Because lasers target the melanin (pigment) in the hair, it only works on dark hair. It does not work on light, blond, gray, red, or white hair. ·Lasers are not permanent. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) only allows lasers to claim long term hair reduction. ·If a person is tan or has a darker skin tone, the laser can get absorbed by the pigment in the skin rather than the hair follicle, limiting the effect of the treatment and potentially damaging the skin.
Lasers have not been evaluated for long-term safety of the patient’s skin and health.
