The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

You’ve been shaving for how many years now? Decades, right? Or has waxing been your hair removal method of choice? Regardless, if you stick with either waxing or shaving, you’re stuck for life.  Neither waxing nor shaving will permanently reduce your hair growth, but laser hair removal can!
Are all you waxers and shavers curious now? Take a look at these five benefits of laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal works

Laser hair removal has been proven effective in the permanent reduction of hair growth.  The USFDA defines “permanent hair reduction” as the long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs growing after a treatment regime. In other words, you don’t have to keep doing it forever. It reduces your hair permanently!

Laser hair removal is precise

Waxing removes skin along with the hair, and razors only shave off the surface part of the hair. With laser hair removal, you’re getting an effective, targeted treatment. The laser zaps the hair follicle beneath the surface without damaging your skin.  

Laser hair removal saves time

For an underarm or bikini laser hair removal treatment, it’ll only take approximately 10 to 15 minutes.  Sure, you can probably shave your underarms in two minutes, but to keep it smooth, you have to do it every other day or so, right? Two minutes, three times a week is six minutes per week. That’s 5.2 hours per year. So if you shave your pits from age 15 to age 80, that’s 338 hours spent shaving – just your underarms. Compare that to, say, five 15-minute laser hair removal sessions (2.3 hours), and… you see what we’re getting at, right?

Laser hair removal reduces ingrown hairs

Remember how we mentioned earlier that laser hair removal has been proven to permanently reduce hair? Well, each treatment also changes the texture of the hair that remains. It becomes thinner and less coarse. So when you reduce the amount of hair and the coarseness of the hair, you also reduce the number of ingrown hairs.  Anyone who has had ingrown hairs knows that’s a very good thing.

You can shave between laser hair removal treatments

Say good-bye to the hairy grow-out period between treatments. Shavers may not understand the hugeness of this, but waxers do. When waxing, you have to have significant hair growth for the treatment to work because the wax needs something to grab onto. But with laser hair removal, you don’t have to grow your hair out for the treatment to work. It’s best if you don’t pluck or wax between sessions, but you can shave.
