Laser hair removal offers a lot of benefits for people who work hard every day to remove unwanted hair from their body. It is suitable for any area of the body except around the eyes. Most women remove the hair on their arms, legs, face and bikini line. Most men remove the hair on their backs and neck. Here are the four main benefits of laser hair removal.
It is Long-Lasting
Laser hair removal can permanently reduce body hair. The laser energy, which is delivered in a hand-held device by our trained technician, targets the pigment in the hair follicle. As the follicle is destroyed, many will never be able to grow hair again. However, some follicles can heal and grow a weaker version of your body hair. This is why it is not called permanent hair removal.
Having said that, the long-term benefits of laser hair removal are impressive. Once you achieve smooth, hairless skin, it may last for months and even up to a year or more. At the very least, you can have a great season wearing shorts, a bikini or other summer clothing without worrying about shaving every day.
Hair grows in three main stages, and each hair is in a different stage. You will need a series of treatments to achieve the results you want because the laser only works during the growth stage of hair.
Reduce Ingrown Hairs
Ingrown hairs are a common result of shaving and waxing. They are painful at best and may leave an unwanted mark on your face. They occur when the hair is broken off unevenly and starts to grow towards your skin. Laser hair removal targets the hair follicle, so there is no hair left to grow in the wrong direction.
Touch-Up Treatments Can Be Done at Any Time
With waxing, you need to wait until all the hair has grown back before having another treatment. One of the many benefits of laser hair removal is you can get touch-up treatments as needed for ongoing benefits.
Laser Hair Removal is Quick and Precise
The treatment uses short bursts of laser light to target the follicle. The laser is precise and only affects the follicle and not the surrounding skin. You can continue your daily activities or go back to work immediately after the treatment.
