When it comes to removing unwanted body hair, you have several options. With shaving, you can remove the hair quickly, but it will grow back in a few days. Shaving can be a time-consuming daily chore. Depilatory creams dissolve hair, but their odor may be offensive. Although the hair will not grow back for weeks afterwards, waxing can be very painful. You may also experience severe itching as your hair grows back. A more long-lasting option, electrolysis, is both painful and tedious. These hair removal options may leave razor burns, bumps and ingrown hairs. Because of these drawbacks, many people are turning to laser hair removal as the most time and cost-effective solution for minimizing hair growth. This popular treatment option has several benefits.
Safe and Effective
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective process. The lasers are very precise, and their energy is targeted directly at the hair follicle. The procedure has been tried and tested successfully over the past several decades. The results are often superior to shaving and waxing.
The treatment can be done almost anywhere on your body, including your arms, face and back. If desired, ice can be used to cool and numb the area before and after treatment. The procedure gets progressively more comfortable as hair becomes thinner after several treatment sessions.
Saves Time and Money
Laser hair removal treatments can be accomplished over large portions of your body relatively quickly. Once you have permanently reduced hair growth, you will not have to spend time every few days shaving your bikini line, underarms or legs. In addition to saving time, you will also avoid the cost of shaving products like razors, creams and ointments. Laser hair removal is often less expensive in the long-term compared shaving or waxing. You may be able to stop shaving altogether.
Works on Shaved Hairs
With laser hair removal, you do not have to wait several days or weeks for your hair to grow back as you do with waxing. Unlike hair removal treatments that require a certain amount of hair to work, the laser actually works better on shaved hairs. This eliminates the need to struggle with and manage a certain amount of hair growth to achieve a successful outcome.
Avoids Ingrown Hairs
Unlike shaving and other hair removal options, laser treatments do not cause ingrown hairs. In fact, it is often the method used in treating them. Therefore, if you are prone to ingrown hairs or razor burn caused by waxing and shaving, laser hair removal may be the right answer for you.
