Removing unwanted hair can be a pesky, repetitive task. Between trying to find the right shaving cream that won’t irritate your skin, constantly replacing dull razors, applying ointment onto painful razor burns, and always seeming to miss that “one spot,” removing hair is commonly regarded as an unpleasant task. However, there are a few professional procedures that you can undergo to avoid ever having to shave or purchase wax strips again. Here is why you should ditch your at-home regimens and opt for professional hair removal instead.
The Results Are Permanent
While there are some professional hair removal procedures that will remove hair from the skin indefinitely, there are others that will drastically reduce hair growth – either way, the results are permanent. If you are looking to do away with hair growth forever, a physician may recommend electrolysis treatment which will involve the use of chemical or heat energy applied directly to the hair follicles to destroy growth. A more popular solution is laser hair removal. While it will not keep hair away completely, it will drastically decrease its thickness and overall appearance to the point where you may not even notice its existence.
Short Time Frames Equal Long Results
On average, you can expect to shave at least once a week, and unfortunately, this statistic only applies to those who grow hair a lot slower than most people. And during the summer, you can expect to pull the razor out a lot more frequently. However, professional treatment methods will not only give you lasting results, but you will only have to undergo a few sessions before you are hairless. Generally, you can begin to notice results after about three sessions of either treatment. Additionally, sessions take only about an hour’s time, but you can expect a shorter period for smaller areas.
Your Skin Will Look More Appealing
While it may not be your initial aim, most professional hair removal treatments will often repair old scarring, blemishes, or even acne that may be lingering on your skin. As an added quality, the devices operated during these procedures are designed to repair imperfections and leave the patient with more youthful looking skin.
