Laser Hair Removal and What it Can do For You

Research has established that there are thousands of people who enjoy the many benefits of laser hair removal. It is a safe and effective way to slow down and eliminate unwanted hair growth in different areas of the body. So, with so many experiencing great results from the procedure, the next question is “Is it right for me? To clarify things, we now take a look at the pros and cons of the treatment.

The Pros

Cost Effective – Whilst the initial cost of laser hair removal can seem a little steep to some, the true value is seen over the long term, as it negates the need for future wax treatments, razors, and depilatory creams that are used to keep hair under control. Also, typically speaking, most will not need more than 7 treatments to achieve their goal of permanent hair loss. Once laser treatment has done its job, other hair removal treatments are no longer needed, saving huge amounts of money throughout your life; not to mention the time spent doing it! Minimal Side Effects – There are only one or two minor side effects that are caused by laser hair removal and for those that experience them, it typically lasts just a few days. No Hair Growth Required – With treatments like waxing, you need to wait for a certain amount of hair growth to have occurred before repeating it. Not so with laser hair removal. We recommend that you shave before the procedure, to stop the ‘scorching’ of any surface hair present. No more ingrown hairs! – Unlike with epilating, threading, and waxing, you don’t have to suffer from unsightly and painful ingrown hairs, razor burns, or any kind of skin irritation. Laser treatment can improve the condition of any ingrown hairs you have already. A Quick Process – The effects of laser hair removal are felt very soon after completion, with many seeing significant improvements in just a few weeks. Of course, this total time taken will depend on the air being treated, but when compared with years of shaving and waxing, it’s no time at all.  

The Cons

Irritation – Laser treatment can result in a degree of skin irritation, such as tingling, itching, swelling, or general redness, but it shouldn’t last more than a few short hours. If you think of what normally happens with standard hair removal treatment, you’ll get a sense of what we mean. No tanning! – During the period you’re having laser hair removal, you must cease all tanning, to avoid complications. This includes using solariums and even tanning from a bottle. It’s a minor inconvenience, but one you’ll have to stick to for the duration. Short-term pigment changes – Another temporary side effect can be the skin treatment area becoming a slightly different color to its surroundings. The pigment change, however, usually clears up in no time at all. All things considered; we think laser hair removal is a great, permanent, painless way to get rid of unwanted hair.
