If you are looking for a more long-term solution to unwanted body hair, then laser hair removal may be the solution for you! Laser hair removal uses light to target areas that are high in pigmentation, which heats them and then destroys the hair follicle. This is why those who are the best candidates for laser hair removal have light to medium skin and dark hair, as the contrast between their skin tone and the hair follicle help the laser do its job.
Those with light skin and light hair or dark skin are most likely not suitable candidates for laser hair removal – if you are not a candidate for laser hair removal but want a long-term solution to hair removal, then electrolysis is your best bet.
If you are a candidate for laser hair removal though, it is a great option that is relatively pain-free, safe, and in comparison to years and years of waxing, threading, and shaving products are well worth your money. Here are our top five reasons why you should consider laser hair removal!
Laser hair removal is a substantial investment up front, but it is just that, an investment. Once you have completed your laser hair removal, you will not have to spend money on waxing treatments, shaving products, threading, or whatever other hair removal method that you were using. While laser hair removal is not entirely permanent and you will have to do touch up sessions, it reduces the amount of hair to the point you no longer need to maintain it in any other way.
Minimal Side Effects
There are not many side effects of laser hair removal, and the most common ones are very minimal and temporary. You may experience a tiny bit of discomfort, redness, and swelling after you have laser hair treatment, but it begins to go away within a few hours after your session. Some people also have a bit of pigment change to their skin, the area darkening or lightening, but it is also usually temporary. Avoid exposure to the sun before or after your treatment to help with this.
When you are receiving laser hair removal, it is best practice to continue to shave so that during your session you will have a hair follicle, but there will be no hair to be scorched by the laser. This means that unlike with waxing, where you have to allow the hair to regrow, you can have smooth legs all the way through your laser hair treatment.
No Ingrown Hairs!
Unlike with waxing, epilating, and threading, you will not have to deal with painful ingrown hairs with laser hair removal. Laser hair removal even can improve current ingrown hairs that you are already suffering from.
Fast and Effective
Laser hair removal treatments are fast sessions that will not take up your whole day. You will also see results within three sessions!
