5 Benefits of Having Laser Hair Removal

Shaving on a daily basis is a hassle and waxing can be easily considered a form of torture. Still, you know the hair has to go, or the consequences will be dire. But there is a better way. Laser hair removal is an alternative that can take care of your unwanted hair issues without a long life commitment (unlike shaving).

1. Speed

Normally, removing hair can take a long time, especially if you are shaving or waxing.
There are a lot of areas to cover: lips, chin, underarms, bikini line, stomach, legs, and back. Taking care of these spots every two or three days is quite a chore. Unlike shaving, laser targets several follicles at once in less than a second, which is more effective and faster than any razor. Depending on the area treated, the procedure should take a few minutes per session. That said, large areas such as the back and legs take much longer, and you could be there for an hour or so. But there is no need to worry; you will see dramatic results after a few weeks.

2. Efficacy

You could say that the biggest advantage of laser hair removal is its effectiveness in delaying and sometimes eliminating unwanted hair. Shaving and waxing are nowhere near as effective and are time-consuming. So how long does it take for the hair to grow back? Well, it typically takes months or years for the hair to reappear although sometimes it never comes back. In other words, there is a chance the hair removal is permanent after a few treatments, and the hair that actually comes back will be finer and much less visible than before.

3. Convenience

It’s true that using laser doesn’t mean that any of the treated follicles won’t grow more hair. Unlike electrolysis, which is the only procedure that guarantees the elimination of the follicle, laser removal is meant to slow down hair regrowth. It has to be noted though, even when the hair won’t be eradicated, most of it will be barely visible.

4. Accuracy

The beauty of the laser removal treatment is that it targets the root of the follicle with a beam of concentrated light destroying the hair in the process. Of course, as long as the person doing the treatment is an experienced professional, the treatment can target those tricky coarse hairs without damaging or irritating the skin.

5. Cost-effectiveness

Many would debate whether using laser treatment can actually save you money. It’s true the investment is around $200 per session which is higher than shaving or waxing, but over the long term, it’s a different story. Once the treatment is over, you won’t have to worry about buying razors, shaving creams or depilatory creams for a long time or if you are lucky, ever again. After a few years, you will be surprised at how much money you have saved. Without having to shave daily, you might even have time to pick up a new hobby.

You will fall in love with laser hair removal. After a few sessions, you will see the results you have been waiting for. Give it a chance, and you will notice how your investment pays for itself many times over with hair-free skin and time to do the things you actually want to do.
