Hair removal is time consuming and in many cases frustrating. Traditional methods of hair removal like waxing, shaving and tweezing are effective for removing hair, but only temporarily. Laser hair removal is effective, efficient and provides a long-term solution for getting rid of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the body that has unwanted hair.
While this method does not completely rid of hair, it does provide 50-95 percent reduction of new hair and the new hair that grows will be finer and easier to maintain. Here are five benefits of laser hair removal.
#1. Treatments Don’t Take Long
Laser hair removal treatments are much quicker than you may expect. It takes around 20 minutes to perform treatment on underarms or the bikini area and only about an hour for areas like arms and legs. Don’t expect to spend all day in the spa when having laser hair removal done – you’ll be in and out in no time.
#2. You’ll Save Money in the Long Run
When you get laser hair removal treatments done, you eliminate the need for endless amounts of razors, shaving cream, waxing appointments, etc. The cost of having laser hair removal done has decreased while the cost of waxing has increased. Laser hair removal is financially smarter, takes less time and will give you an overall longer lasting result.
#3. Eliminate Ingrown Hairs
You can prevent and eliminate ingrown hairs with laser hair removal. It is the best solution to make sure you don’t suffer from a pesky ingrown hair and risk having to have it removed. Laser hair removal is also a great option for people who have sensitive skin and have skin irritation after shaving or waxing.
#4. It Saves Time
Think about all of the times you have had to spend an extra ten or fifteen minutes in the shower shaving and then come to find you’ve missed spots and have to go back to fix it. With laser hair removal, you no longer have to spend time shaving or going to appointments to get the hair waxed. You also don’t have to worry about making mistakes and missing spots anymore. You will have clean-shaven skin without the hassle of shaving or waxing.
#5. You Don’t Need to Grow Hair Between Treatments
Unlike with waxing, you can shave in between your treatments. You no longer have to wait to grow your hair out because with laser hair removal you can shave as much as you want in between sessions.
Common Questions about Laser Hair Removal
What are the risks?
You can have laser hair removal treatment done over your lunch break, because there is no recovery time. The lasers do not remove skin, so there are very low risks.
Is it painful?
Laser hair removal is no more painful than waxing. If you have sensitive skin, there are numbing creams that can be used to make the experience more comfortable.
How does the laser remove the hair?
The lasers emit a light at a specific wavelength that will be absorbed by the pigment of the hair follicle without damaging the skin around it. The light is converted into heat energy, which then disables the hair follicle so that it will not produce more hair.
How many treatments are needed?
Typically it will take six to eight treatments to achieve a full clear area, but there are certain people who only need four treatments.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Before having laser hair removal done, you should check with your doctor to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. You should limit waxing, plucking and tweezing and electrolysis for six weeks before the treatment. The laser targets the roots of the hair, which are temporarily removed when you have them waxed or plucked.
For the day or two after the treatment, your skin will look and feel sunburned. Moisturizers and cool compresses can help. Over the next month, the treated hair will fall out. Make sure to wear sunscreen for the following month to prevent temporary color changes in the skin.
