Why You Should Consider Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal

You may have heard about laser hair removal and wondered if it was right for you. Every year, literally millions of women and men are having unwanted hair permanently and quickly removed from the face, arms, legs, back, bikini areas and underarms. A plastic surgeon or dermatologist uses a handheld device that targets the hair at the root with heat, destroying the follicle so that hair no longer grows there. The following are some excellent reasons why you should consider laser hair removal based on the latest trends in the beauty and body aesthetics industries.

No More Waxing!

Having problem areas professionally waxed to remove unwanted hair is expensive, and results are temporary. Waxing is also quite painful, especially to more sensitive areas on the body such as bikini lines, the upper lip and the latest trend is for men, removing hair from their chests and backs. Waxing works by sticking to the hair at skin level and yanking it out. Sometimes the hair breaks off instead of coming out with the wax, resulting in painful and unsightly ingrown hairs. Laser treatment targets the darkest part of the hair at the follicle and prevents new hair from growing. Beauty experts report more people are opting for laser treatments, leaving the waxing in the past where it belongs!

Way Better than Shaving!

Shaving with a razor has to be done on a daily basis to keep unwanted hair under control. Razors are expensive, and hair grows right back in the form of ugly and uncomfortable stubble. Shaving also only removes the hair at skin level and if your razor isn’t fresh it can leave a red, bumpy rash behind (razor burn) and razors can easily nick and cut the skin, even resulting in scars or infection. Laser hair removal Burlington do not harm the skin around the hair at all and there is no risk of cuts or even bruising. Thanks to the latest advances in the laser devices, laser removal of hair is virtually painless.

Cost Effectiveness

Whether you wax, shave or use a depilatory, you have to keep repeating these techniques for life (or live with unwanted hair!) and the costs for these methods adds up over a lifetime. For example, a women’s shaver with a handle and four 5 blade razor refills costs on average about $12-$14 for a one month supply. Plus shaving cream is about $4 per can every month, so approximately $20/month is $240 every year. Waxing costs even more! Compare that to how much a permanent, quick and pain free solution costs and laser hair removal is actually much less expensive in the long run!
