And why should you consider this procedure? Well, this is our guide to everything you should know about the advantages of professional laser hair removal.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a safe procedure that removes unwanted hair using a powerful laser or intense pulsed light (IPL). The light source destroys the hair follicles in the skin, and disrupts the hair growth. After repeated sessions, the hair will not grow back at all, providing permanent removal for unwanted hair. This is a popular treatment for both men and women, and can be used effectively for all types of hair, across all areas of the body.
What are the advantages of professional laser hair removal?
There are a number of advantages to laser hair removal, especially when you choose a professional clinic like ours here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic. These advantages include:
- Saving money in the long run – laser hair removal generally takes around 6-8 sessions before the hair stops growing back completely. This means that opting for this treatment will cost far less in the long run when compared with the ongoing costs of waxing, or even shaving. Once the hair growth cycle has completely stopped, you wont need to make waxing appointments, or buy shaving supplies, ever again!
- Smooth skin – laser hair removal will leave you with smooth, soft skin that also flatters your muscle tone. In addition, unlike shaving or waxing, you wont experience an allergic reaction, cuts or scratches, in-grown hairs, or itchy, or red, damaged patches of skin. This means that not only will you feel more comfortable and relaxed, but you can also show off your silky smooth skin, straight away.
- Less painful – laser hair removal has consistently been described as less painful than waxing. The laser itself feels like a fast, hot snap, before it moves on, and as it moves very quickly, it is much less painful than process of waxing, where the hair follicles are pulled out of the skin by the roots. This is especially true in sensitive areas like the bikini line or on the face.
- No more last minute shaving or waxing – with laser hair removal, you won’t need to worry about flexibility with plans, or making time for a last minute shave or wax. Instead, your time will be your own, and you won’t ever have to worry about unsightly hairs again! Not only will this help you enjoy more free time, but it also means you can be more flexible and versatile when it comes to making last minute plans.
