Laser Hair Removal in Dubai offers an effective and easy way to get rid of unwanted hair. The technology has been around since the mid-90s and has evolved a lot over the last couple of decades. The journey started with the advent of Ruby Lasers, which worked on the principle of selective absorption and were effective for only a selected class – people with fair skin and dark, coarse hair. Then came Alexandrite Lasers which were more effective than ruby lasers. Now we have the finest Nd: YAG and Diode Lasers which are highly effective for darker and even tanned skins.

Can Laser Cause Cancer?

No matter how effective modern day lasers are, their safety has always been questioned with many rumors encompassing them. The latest rumor making rounds on the internet and social media is the laser hair removal Dubai can cause cancer. The question is if it is true? No, it is nothing more than propaganda against lasers. You should know that there is no reality in this claim. Lasers used for laser hair removal in Dubai are safe and effective with approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

X-rays and Gamma Rays are Not Safe:

At Laser Skin care Clinic, we are often asked if there is any connection between laser hair removal Dubai and cancer. Well, the answer is, “No”. Lasers are comprised of non-ionizing radiations which are safe for human skin and do not cause any damage to the human cell’s DNA. Radiations that are most dangerous for your health are the high frequency ionizing radiations, such as gamma rays and X-rays. These rays are obtained from radon gas or they emit from nuclear plants. These rays are often associated with life-threatening conditions and have proven to cause cancer in people who are constantly exposed to them. This is because when they pass through the human body, they damage the cell’s DNA, and this can potentially cause cancer.

Lasers are Non-Ionizing Radiations And are Safe:

As far as laser beams are comprised, they are non-ionizing radiations and are thus safer and their efficacy is no less than the ionizing radiations. Laser pulses are specially designed to target and destroy hair follicles – the active part of the hair responsible for hair growth – by heating them. Laser hair removal Dubai experts explain that light energy from lasers acts superficially and does not pass beyond the level of the skin. Besides, they also don’t damage DNA or cause DNA mutations.

Treating Sensitive Areas with Lasers Hair Removal Dubai:

Lasers have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as well as other international healthcare organizations to treat even sensitive areas of the body such as chest area and the bikini line. “The light used does not penetrate beyond the depths of the hair follicle and internal organs are in no way affected, nor is fertility,” said Dr. Konstantin Zakashansky, a gynecologic oncologist at The Mount Sinai Hospital.
