When it comes to hair removal, there are plenty of options available. So many, it can be hard to choose. Especially when some of those options are lesser known. Or the victims of strong misconceptions. Looking for a hair removal method that works for you? Or hesitating about laser hair removal? Here are 7 reasons why you should choose laser hair removal.
1. You can’t stand body hair
The most obvious reason is that you want to remove unwanted body hair. If you are happy and feel comfortable with your hair, by all means keep it. However, such is not the case for all women and men.
Indeed, some individuals do not like unwanted body hair. For aesthetics or athletics reasons, personal preferences, etc. So, yes, the first reason why you should choose laser hair removal is simply because you cannot stand body hair.
Again some people will be comfortable with body hair in some areas of their body but not on others. Laser hair removal provides a good hair removal option that is stress-free, effective and long-lasting.
2. You want to save money
Let’s be honest. Hair removal costs money. A lot of money. Especially with those hair removal methods whose results are short or medium-term. Short-term methods like shaving require you to do it over and over again.
This means that you’d also have to buy the equipment or pay for the service just as many times. And we already know how pricey can shaving and waxing be after some time. Especially because none of those methods reduce hair growth.
One reason why you should choose laser hair removal is that it helps you save big on hair removal. Yes, that is true. And yes, we know that the upfront cost may seem like a lot. But first, our spa offers payment plans.
Second, the upfront cost is also a one-time cost. If you decide to choose laser hair removal for your full legs, you will pay the $1,305 fee once. After your six sessions are complete, you may need a touch up or two. However, the cost will never be spread beyond a year.
3. You don’t want to waste time
Hair removal takes so much time. Traditional methods that is. Shaving? Seemingly fast and convenient. Done under the shower. For your underarms maybe. For your full legs? It will take a bit longer. Plus, you may not be able to reach the back of your legs and leave some patches of hair.
Waxing? The bravest of us will do it at home. But again, it takes time. And the pain. Even if you go to an institute, you will stay there at least an hour for the full treatment. Chemical creams do not offer as fast a treatment as they may want you to believe.
Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is a fast treatment. A session can take as little as five minutes for a small area. Even a large area like the full legs will take maybe 30 minutes. Combining several areas will make the treatment much faster.
4. You are fed up with the pain of waxing
On paper, waxing is great. It removes unwanted body hair for up to four weeks. And it contributes to reducing hair growth in the long term. In reality? Waxing hurts. A lot. And sometimes, we would be happy to just skip it.
One reason why you should choose laser hair removal is that it is virtually painless. Of course, pain is a subjective notion. It depends on each patient’s tolerance to pain. Some will not feel anything while others will feel discomfort.
But even if your tolerance to pain is low, you will not experience pain as strong as with waxing. Indeed, the sensation is akin to pinching. Or a rubber band snapping at the skin. It may feel uncomfortable but the pain is very tolerable.
5. You want to prevent ingrown hair
The thing with shaving and waxing is that they both remove the hair in the direction opposite to growth. This can disturb hair growth. With shaving, the hair might just not be able to grow back straight. It will then curl under the skin and stay stuck there.
With waxing, it is a bit more difficult. Two things can happen. The hair is not growing how it should and curls up under the skin. Or, repetitive waxing thin the hair so much that it is not strong enough to pierce through the skin.
Either way, you get ingrown hair outbreaks, which are not pretty nor pleasant. Ingrown hair can be quite irritating but can also turn into skin infection. Laser hair removal helps you prevent that. Simply because it damages the hair follicle.
Thus, the latter cannot produce new hair. No hair, no ingrown hair.
6. You want smooth skin
Waxing, shaving and chemical creams are very aggressive to the skin. Depilatory creams simply because they are packed with harmful chemicals. Shaving cuts the hair at the surface of the skin. But the blade still touches the skin and can cut through it.
Waxing removes both the hair and the skin. It is painful and also removes the outer layer of moisture. Thus, the skin is sensitive but also gets dry after a treatment. Laser hair removal does not leave your skin rough.
Instead, the procedure makes your skin feel smoother and enables it to retain its natural condition.
7. You don’t want to have to worry about hair ever again
The thing with most hair removal methods is that they do not work in the long term. Sure waxing contributes to hair growth reduction but this after many years. Chemical creams and shaving have similar effects. They cut or dissolve the hair without affecting the follicle.
Thus, hair growth is immediate. People who shave know it. You have to do it multiple times a week to keep your skin smooth. Same with chemical creams. The results from waxing last a bit longer, sure. But you will still need to repeat the process each month.
Having to worry about hair removal is stressful. One reason you should choose laser hair removal is that you will not have to worry anymore. Why? Because the procedure damages the hair follicle. Then, no new hair can grow.
The treatment can reduce hair growth by up to 95%. Safe to say that you will not need to shave or wax ever again. There simply won’t be anything to remove. You will thus be able to enjoy some peace of mind and think of other things than hair removal.
