There are many reasons people don’t want to deal with body hair, whether it is to build or regain their confidence or wanting to be ready for the beach and other recreational activities. Sometimes it’s just simply the convenience of not needing to shave or wax on a long-term or even permanent basis.
Unwanted body and facial hair is a common concern for both women and men. Despite wanting to deal with unsightly and sometimes ingrown hair being a common desire, the pain and cost involved with most treatments are major roadblocks for many.
Consult with a doctor whether you are a good candidate for this procedure. In the meantime, here are some reasons why you should consider taking a leap.
- Practical and cost-effective
Try laser hair removal and say goodbye to nasty shaving, time-consuming tweezing and painful waxing. It is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the US. The upfront expense for these treatments is not cheap. However, if you compare all the accumulated costs from buying razors, shaving creams, lotions and waxing/threading/epilating appointments, it does add up to a lot.
Aside from saving money, you will end up with more time to spend on other things like holidays and family time. And when you think about it, these savings are valuable and irreplaceable.
- Permanent with few and minimal side effects
When the laser is applied with the best equipment, the appropriate energy levels, and a well-trained, experienced technician—the results should be permanent. This means there will be little to no maintenance required afterwards.
Visits to the clinic or salon may take a minimum of 4 sessions and this varies from person to person. Some experience pigmentation on the treated skin area due to light exposure but this is usually temporary and is easily resolved.
- Ingrown hair and hair growth
One major advantage of laser hair removal over other procedures like threading or epilating is that it does not cause burning, redness, irritation and ingrown hairs. You can have clear, smooth skin ready for any event at all times.
- Quick results
The laser hair removal process works by targeting hair follicles on a particular target skin area within a specific time frame stunting future hair growth. Regardless of skin type or tone, it works best on people with a dark hair color. The more contrast there is between your hair and skin color, the better. You will see results within two weeks from the date of your initial treatment.
- Effective and precise
The procedure dramatically decreases hair growth eliminating the need for shaving or waxing. Hairs are targeted down to the follicle, hence you see results take effect sooner. It is safe to use on many parts of the body including the face, arms, armpits, chest, back, legs and bikini area.
Like any other treatment out there, study the pros and cons and seek professional advice to determine if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal. The best decisions are made when you have the proper information to guide you along the way.
