5 Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
- You save time and money. While it may sound like an expensive undertaking, laser hair removal costs less than a lifetime of shaving supplies. As laser technology has improved, so has treatment pricing, while at the same time, salon waxing treatments have increased in cost. You save money, time, and aggravation with laser hair removal.
- Treatments are fast. Even for large areas, like the back or legs, treatments only take 30 minutes at most. The number of recommended treatments depends on the individual patient, but the average is 6-8 every 4 weeks for best results. No more shaving, plucking, or waxing.
- Laser hair removal is precise. The laser energy specifically targets pigment, and that means the hair follicle and not the surrounding skin. The follicle absorbs the energy, heating enough to sustain damage that results in shedding and no more regrowth. The surrounding tissues remain safe and unharmed.
- No growing hair between treatments. With waxing, you have to let the hair grow long enough for the wax to grab onto, so if you’re days away from your next waxing treatment, you may be self-conscious of wearing a bathing suit or strapless dress. Laser hair removal works best on shaved hair, where there’s still a follicle, but no outward growth to get in the way of the energy beam.
No more ingrown hairs. This may be the best benefit of all. With the follicle damaged enough to never grow back, there’s no hair to grow again, ingrown or otherwise. You’re left with smooth, silky skin in whatever area you’re having treated. No red bumps. No painful rash. No expensive ointments to soothe irritated skin.
