Unwanted facial and body hair is embarrassing. You have options; you can shave, wax or use depilatories to remove hair temporarily, but it will grow back soon. If you’re tired of endlessly shaving or having your hair painfully pulled out with wax, consider state-of-the-art laser technology.
Laser hair removal is a safe, permanent option which may take several sessions to provide the results you desire. The laser targets the pigment in your hair and uses heat to remove the hair and prevents it from growing back. Reasons you should consider permanent hair removal with laser technology include:
- Skilled Providers
Cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists perform laser hair removal in their office. The doctors and their staff have training in the procedure and use professional-grade equipment. You can buy a laser device online but they are expensive and cannot deliver enough heat to destroy the follicle so the results are not as good as you would get at a doctor’s office.
- The Side Effects are Minimal
If you follow the pre-procedure suggestions, the only side effect you are likely to experience is redness at the site for a day after the procedure. Do not exercise, shower or bathe the day of your procedure. Avoid the sun for two weeks before and after the procedure. Avoid products, such as scrubs, which may irritate the skin for a few days before and after your treatment for the best results.
- It’s Cost Effective
Your doctor will explain the cost for multiple hair removal treatments and give you an estimate of how many times you must return. Large areas, like the back, will cost more than having unsightly hairs removed from your chin. Even though the initial cost is higher than a wax treatment, you’ll experience permanent results. Imagine how much you’ll save over a lifetime; you won’t need to buy razors, shaving cream or depilatories anymore.
- No More Ingrown Hairs
When you shave, hair can curl under the skin and start growing there. You’ll get a red bump which looks like a pimple and it may contain pus. Women usually get them where they have coarse hair, such as in the bikini area and under the arms. There are ways to reduce your chances of getting ingrown hairs, such as exfoliating regularly, but why not eliminate ingrown hairs permanently by having a hair removal treatment with a laser?
- You Don’t Have To Put Up With Surface Hair
Before you schedule a waxing appointment, you must let the hair grow so the wax can grip the hair and pull it out. You must time your waxing sessions carefully because you don’t want to go to a beach party with fuzzy legs. With laser hair removal, you can keep your skin hair-free between sessions until the hair stops growing permanently.
Make an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon to see if permanent hair removal is right for you. New advances now make it possible for people with darker skin tones to see the same results.
