Unwanted Hair And The Effectiveness Of Laser Hair Removal

Traditional hair removal methods such as waxing, shaving, threading, etc., are time-consuming, painful, temporary, and nothing less than an inconvenience. The ongoing beauty standards and aesthetic needs have mandated hair removal. But no matter which hair removal procedure you avail of, dealing with the aftermath is an equally frustrating struggle. Today, inexpensive and highly effective Laser hair removal has replaced these traditional and outdated hair removal practices. You can eliminate the annoyance of frequent hair removing approaches from your life for good and live a care-free and hair-free life.

Two major drawbacks of old hair-removing practices include pain and their temporary effectiveness. Laser hair removal has raised the bar relatively with its pain-free application and near-to permanent results. 

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

You may ask how this procedure works? Laser hair removal therapy uses high-heat laser beams as a mild form of radiation that, through our melanin, travel to the follicle’s base and destroy it. Destroying the hair follicles prevent hair growth and destroy the existing strands. 

Our hair follicles are located just below the skin and are responsible for producing new hair strands. Unlike the traditional hair reduction procedures, the laser does not pluck, cut, or pull the strands out of the follicles. Instead, it targets and damages the follicles to stop hair growth once and for all. If the follicles are destroyed, hair production stops.

By contrast, tweezing, shaving, and waxing remove hair above the follicle base at different depths. These methods do not target hair-producing follicles. Moreover, hair removal is safe for the entire body. The most common body areas for this service are:

  • Chest
  • Back
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Shoulders
  • Neck
  • Bikini line
  • Facial hair (forehead, cheeks, etc.)

This form of hair removal works best with darker hair colors on light skin tones. This is because the lasers target hair melanin (color). Even if some hairs aren’t removed, the lightening of their color can reduce the appearance of hair on the skin. However, more-advanced laser hair removal technologies are also available to target any skin tone and hair color. 

This is not a one-time procedure and requires multiple sessions depending upon your hair growth and density. For the utmost success of this treatment, the strands need to be intact with the follicle, so avoid threading and waxing. If need be, only use shaving. 

Overall, laser hair removal is a relatively quick and pain-free process and mildly uncomfortable for some people. Smaller areas, such as the upper lip, can take just minutes. However, larger hair removal areas, like the back or chest, may take an hour or longer. You may need to get 4 to 6 sessions, 3 to 4 weeks apart. 

Laser Hair Removal: Worth-Mentioning Benefits

Laser hair removal can make the idea of living a hair-free and hassle-less life a possibility for us. It provides multiple benefits:

Treatments Do Not Take Long

Waxing and shaving your entire body can be a nightmare. But unlike these traditional hair removal methods, laser hair removal treatments are much quicker than you may expect. It takes around 20 minutes to perform treatment on the underarms or the bikini area and only about an hour for areas like arms and legs. So forget about long showers or tiresome salon visits or expect to spend all day in the spa when having laser hair removal done – you’ll be in and out in no time.

Save Money in the Long Run

Repeating hair removal methods can cost a lot of money if we estimate our entire life’s costs. When you get laser hair removal treatments done, you eliminate the need for endless amounts of razors, shaving cream, waxing appointments, and all the money they cost. The cost of having laser hair removal done has decreased while the cost of waxing has increased. So make a financially smarter decision by choosing laser hair removal that takes less time, and will give you an overall longer-lasting result.

No Ingrown Hairs

Waxing and shaving cause ingrown hairs, another drawback of temporary hair removal techniques. But you can prevent and eliminate ingrown hairs with laser hair removal. It is the best solution to eliminate ingrown hair. Laser hair removal is also an excellent option for people who have sensitive skin and have skin irritation after shaving or waxing.

Save Your Time

Save your time, money, and efforts. Our fast-paced lives require quick, easy, and effective alternatives to add to our convenience. Laser hair removal can save your time and allow you a worry-free life. Enjoy having clean and shaven skin without the hassle of shaving or waxing.

You Do Not Have to Wait for Regrowth to Remove Hair
