Chicken skin and itchy ingrowns from shaving, skin darkening and irritation from painful waxing, and let’s not even start with time-consuming plucking — simply put, yes, investing in laser hair removal is definitely a good idea.
Once considered a luxury service, this painless permanent hair removal treatment has risen in popularity and has been made more affordable. But as with any treatment that promises permanent results, it’s understandable that you want to make sure your investment is worth it.
Still on the fence if you’re down for laser hair removal? Let’s dig deep into why many women take the plunge.
What is laser hair removal?
Perhaps understanding how laser hair removal works will make it less intimidating. So, let’s talk about the process first.
When performed correctly, laser hair removal directly targets the hair follicles to prevent the growth of new hair. The laser is a concentrated beam of light energy that is converted to heat, destroying the follicles and delaying or preventing future hair growth without harming any surrounding tissue. This means you’ll have a painless permanent hair removal experience that comfortably and safely reduces unwanted hair.
Benefits of laser hair removal
Now that we’ve got the process down pat, let’s move on to its benefits and why people love it so much.
Shaving provides short-term results — a week at best. Results from waxing are more prolonged but hair will start to grow back after a couple of weeks. With laser hair removal, there are very few chances of hair growing back from the same place as the treatment completely destroys the hair follicle. And even if hair does grow back, it will be significantly thinner and far easier to maintain than before.
No side effects
Traditional hair removal methods have unsightly side effects such as razor burn, ingrown hair, and darkened skin. Laser hair removal, when performed by a trained professional, does not damage the surrounding skin as it only targets the hair follicles. You’ll achieve the silky-smooth, hair-free skin you’ve been dreaming of for years.
Painless permanent hair removal doesn’t require much time. Depending on the targeted area, you can even fit a single session into your lunch break! If the targeted area is small, it will hardly take 10-15 minutes. The treatment also doesn’t require downtime. After the procedure, you can immediately resume your daily activities.
Is laser hair removal worth it?
If we’re talking about what’s “worth it,” think about the amount you actually spend on razors and waxing salons each year. Not only are these constant, frequent, repeated purchases because they yield temporary results, they also leave the skin with harsh effects that will be irreversible in the long run. Laser hair removal reduces unwanted hair in just a few sessions – then you’re done! It is definitely a worth-it investment. You’ll be astonished at how low maintenance it is and you’ll enjoy the freedom of not stressing about unwanted hair ever again. After a few sessions with us, many of our clients find the decision liberating and they feel much more confident in the skin they’re in.
