Shaving, tweezing and waxing – we have plenty of choice when it comes to hair removal. But there is another option, one that is a little more expensive and requires more commitment, but may be the perfect choice for some: laser hair removal.
Not sure if laser hair removal is right for you? In this article, we’ll be exploring some of the benefits.
Ingrown hairs are an annoyance faced by many, however laser treatment helps remove the hairs completely from the roots, preventing ingrown hairs from cropping up, unlike other conventional methods of hair removal, such as shaving and waxing. And with regular laser treatment, ingrown hairs can be eliminated completely.
If you normally shave your hair, you’ll be used to the sensation of prickly stubble that appears over time. Even with waxing, you can be left with less-than-smooth skin. With laser technology, your skin will be left super smooth, as there’s no stubble that gets left behind.
The great thing about laser removal is that it leaves no scars, burns or other marks. If you look at the alternatives, the same guarantee can’t be made. With shaving, for example, there is always a chance you may end up with a cut or a burn, and laser hair removal is less painful than waxing.
Some people find that not long after having their hair cut, it has grown back again, but the effects of laser removal are much longer lasting. Hair can take up to a few months to grow back with this method. And, what’s more, with every session of laser removal that you have, the hair can take even longer to grow back. Plus, even when it does grow back, it’ll return thinner and sparser than before. If you have regular sessions, you may find your skin is almost hairless!
As you may have guessed, the time it takes for the process to be completed depends on the size of the area. So, if you are treating your back, this will take longer than your upper lip, for example. Overall, it’s a fast process, with some sessions being as quick as 20 minutes.
When you initially think of laser hair removal, you might worry you’ll lose too much money buying the service and too much time attending the sessions, but you might find the opposite ends up being true. You could save money not having to regularly purchase razors and shaving gels and save time only having a regular session here and there, instead of spending so long removing hair at home!
Whilst different solutions work for different people, many will find that laser hair removal is an effective method to do away with their unwanted hair. You’ll need to research the best place for you to have the treatment, ensuring you find somewhere with good reviews and a good reputation. You’ll also need to consider if it’s within your budget and whether it’s something you can keep going with as required.
