Smooth, silky skin can be the key to confidence, especially during summer months. Many men and women suffer from excessive and unwanted hair growth and spend much time and money trying to eliminate the problem. While there are many options, laser hair removal is the ultimate technique for safely and effectively removing unwanted hair. It’s less painful and time-consuming than common methods such as shaving, electrolysis and depilatories and can achieve more permanent results. Laser hair removal leaves the skin smother and silkier than other methods and there is minimal discomfort comfort during the procedure.
The highly trained staff at out medical skin spa performs this procedure on hundreds of satisfied clients per year who leave our spa feeling more confident and beautiful then when they arrived. We use the most cutting-edge laser technology available to achieve our clients’ hair removal goals in the shortest amount of time possible.
If you’re ready to toss out the razors and messy depilatory creams, read on to learn about seven benefits of laser hair removal.
1. Lasers are Safe and Effective
Hair removal lasers are FDA-approved for “permanent hair reduction” and have been used in the United States for more than 20 years. It is now one of the most popular aesthetic treatments performed in the entire country. Laser hair removal is commonly used for both men and women on areas including the face, lip, chin, sideburns, arms, chest, stomach, legs, bikini area and back.
2. Results are Long-lasting
Lasers have much more long-lasting results than shaving, waxing and depilatories and results can be permanent for many. A large percentage of clients experience permanent hair loss after an average of five to seven sessions. Those who do not experience permanent removal do enjoy a drastic reduction in hair growth, to the point where shaving is unnecessary.
3. Laser Hair Removal is Precise
Lasers target only the hair follicle so that the surrounding areas are undamaged. They are the most precise hair removal method available. Due to the sleek shape of lasers, they can gently target hard to reach areas that are unsafe for other techniques.
4. Treatments are Fast and Convenient
Lasers are designed to target several follicles in a larger surface area at the same time. Each pulse travels at the speed of light, taking less than second per follicle. Average treatment sessions take between 15 and 20 minutes, depending on the area. However, smaller areas such as the upper lip can take less than a minute. Since there is no downtime, laser hair removal is a popular “lunchtime” procedure.
5. It’s Time-Saving and Cost-Efficient
Once you complete your treatment package, you will save all the time and money you once spent on shaving or waxing. This will definitely offset the cost of laser hair removal over time.
6. You Can Shave in Between Sessions
While you have to allow hair to grow back in between waxing, you do not have to suffer the unsightliness or regrowth with laser removal. You can shave every day in between sessions if you like. The hair that does grow back between treatments is sparser, finer in texture and lighter in color, making it easier to manage.
7. No More Ingrown Hairs
Once you complete laser hair removal, you will never again suffer the pain of ingrown hairs caused by shaving and waxing. The chance of ingrown hairs flaring up in between sessions is minimized since the hair grows back finer and sparser. In addition, lasers can treat these unsightly areas to help eliminate them faster.
