Laser hair removal focuses on eliminating body hair by ensuring it does not grow again. As hair follicle pigment absorbs the concentrated light, the hair dies and the follicle stops working. For some people, a treatment or two is enough to see the results they desire. But others require at least 8 treatment sessions to get optimal results. Men and women can consider permanent hair removal to eliminate unwanted body hair, especially on the face, neck, underarms, legs, bikini line, and back. You may want to get this type of treatment due to the following benefits it offers:
While laser treatment is not cheap, it can help you save money in the long run. Prices for laser treatment vary, depending on the laser type and the size of the area you want to be treated. Although laser hair removal can be expensive, it still offers greater savings than what you could spend on regular shaving and waxing.
Avoid the Risks of Ingrown Hairs
Traditional hair removal methods like shaving and waxing can lead to the development of ingrown hairs, which happens when hair grows back into your skin. Ingrown hair looks like small red bumps on your skin that can be itchy and sore. In some instances, ingrown hairs can become infected and must be treated with antibiotic tablets or creams. As they are visible, they can make you feel embarrassed and may make you feel like hiding your skin. With laser hair removal, the follicle dies, stopping the growth of new hairs and preventing ingrown hairs.
Enhance the Appearance of Your Skin
Waxing and shaving can irritate your skin. Shaving can lead to skin rashes and dry skin while waxing can cause red bumps and boils. Although the skin can look slightly red after laser hair removal treatment, these side effects will disappear quickly. In the long term, you skin will be silky smooth and you do not have to remove hair repeatedly.
Get It Done Without Waiting for Your Hair to Grow
Removing body hairs with laser treatment can be done when your hair is quite short. Indeed, your treatment provider may encourage you to shave your hair before your treatment session to ensure your hair won’t scorch. Thus, as you wait for the laser treatment to work, you can stay free of those unwanted hairs. With other removal methods like waxing, you need to wait for your hair to grow before you can get rid of it.
