Are You Tired of Shaving and Waxing? Try Laser Hair Removal!
Getting rid of unwanted hair is a demanding and ongoing process. Within just days of shaving, many of the treated strands will be back and thicker than ever. Although waxing can produce results that last for weeks at a time, forcibly ripping hairs out by their roots is uncomfortable, and it definitely takes a toll on the skin. Laser hair removal, however, provides a far longer-lasting solution. After a series of treatments, many people do not regrow hair in the treated area at all. Those who do find that their new hairs are finer, lighter in color, and far less conspicuous overall.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
During laser hair removal procedures, each hair follicle is targeted with short pulses of laser light. This exposure damages the follicle so that it’s no longer capable of producing new hairs in the future. Within just one treatment, some people may find that their unwanted facial and bodily hairs are much lighter and finer. After multiple sessions, many of the affected follicles will not grow new hairs at all. Best of all, unlike waxing, there is no need to wait for the targeted hairs to grow out before receiving a laser hair removal treatment.
What You Can Expect
Some people are able to achieve permanent hair removal with this treatment. Others, however, may need follow-up sessions before reaching their cosmetic goals. The number of sessions that you’ll require will be dependent upon the color, thickness and coarseness of your strands, the size of the area you want treated, and many other factors.
Why Laser Hair Removal is Better Than the Alternatives
Shaving can be one of the most problematic hair removal methods for those with skin that’s prone to infection and irritation. If you suffer from frequent rashes or hair bumps, using a sharp razor to remove your unwanted hairs will only compound these conditions. Moreover, the many scratches, cuts and nicks that you’re likely to sustain in the process of shaving can let harmful bacteria in. People who wax often suffer from similar issues.
These aren’t issues that you’ll have to deal with when using laser hair removal to get rid of your unwanted hair.
