Unwanted Hair Removal – Kiss Waxing, Plucking and Shaving Goodbye!
Getting rid of unwanted hair is a constant battle. Whether you wax, pluck, or shave you can never declare victory. Think of all the time and money spent on unwanted hair removal and the hair always grows back. It’s time to put down the razors and cancel those painful waxing appointments. There is an easier, more comfortable way to get rid of unwanted hair – laser hair removal.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser treatments are a more permanent option for unwanted hair removal administered by a licensed physician or certified laser technician. Instead of just eliminating visible hair, laser treatments target the follicles and destroy them. To do this effectively, the targeted hair needs to be in the anagen or growth stage. To catch the hair at the right stage, multiple treatments are necessary and should be administered 3 to 4 weeks apart.
The length of each treatment depends on the size of the treatment area. They can range from a few minutes to half an hour with minimal discomfort. Slight redness or irritation can result from laser treatments, however, it dissipates in a few hours. This method of unwanted hair removal is effective on all skin types and most hair colors. The number of treatments necessary to achieve optimal results can vary. The physician or certified technician providing them will be able to determine the number of treatments necessary.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
There are other unwanted hair removal methods but laser hair removal offers a variety of benefits that they can’t provide.
Laser treatments are significantly more comfortable than other hair removal methods. Electrolysis and waxing also target the root but are more painful. With electrolysis, a needle is inserted into the follicle to kill the root. However, it is done one hair at a time and can be extremely time-consuming and painful. With waxing, the hair gets trapped in the cooling wax and then literally ripped out. Not only is it painful but waxing can also result in skin irritation and ingrown hairs.
Multiple Treatment Areas
Laser treatment can provide effective unwanted hair removal on almost any part of the body. It is a great option for hard-to-reach areas such as the back. Shaving in sensitive areas like the bikini line can result in irritation and unsightly ‘razor bumps’. You can avoid this with laser hair removal. Because laser treatments are precise, they are perfect for smaller areas like the upper lip. Laser hair removal can’t be done in the area around the eyes and protective eyewear must be used during treatments.
Makes Regrowth Unnecessary
Some unwanted hair removal methods, like waxing or plucking, require regrowth between each procedure. With laser hair removal, you can continue to wax, pluck or shave between treatments to maintain smooth hair-free skin. Once the laser treatments are complete, this will no longer be necessary.
Results vary for each individual. Most people experience long-lasting results. Some require follow-up treatments months or even years later. Others may only experience a permanent reduction in hair growth. The reduction or elimination of unwanted hair can also be cost-effective, just think of all the money you’ll save on razors, depilatory creams, and waxing appointments.
