There are many myths when it comes to laser hair removal. New York City residents count on Manhattan Laser Centers to be honest, open and transparent.  Let’s take a look at a few of the most common myths associated with laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal only works on light skin

False.  While it is true that intense pulsed light (IPL) is not ideal for dark skin tones, medical lasers can effectively and safely treat darker hair and skin. Beware of laser hair removal providers that claim to use lasers but really treat the area with IPL. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical lasers for all laser hair removal treatments.

Laser hair removal is primarily for women

False.  We have an excellent track record of treating both men and women!  If you happen to have thick hair it is not a problem because thicker hair actually responds much faster to medical laser treatments.  When it comes to laser hair removal, NYC men and women prefer Manhattan Laser Centers.  We are gender agnostic and an official LGBTQ friendly zone.

Laser hair removal is not safe

False.  Treatments performed by a qualified clinician using a true medical laser are very safe and effective.  Beware of laser hair removal providers that do not use true medical lasers or have untrained staff performing the treatments.
