Benefits of Laser Hair Removal. Removing unwanted hair on your legs, face, arms, or bikini line can feel like a never-ending saga. On the one hand, you have options, whether it be shaving, tweezing, or waxing. But which is right for you? Which is the quickest and least painful? That’s the tricky part, and it will lead to plenty of trial and error that you’ll have to repeat month after month — rarely with satisfying results. If this sounds all too familiar, laser hair removal may be for you.
We have a litany of skin and laser treatments at Live Young Wellness Spa in Flower Mound, all of which help you look, feel, and live young. Laser hair removal is one of those options, and perhaps the biggest benefit is that it works.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S., and it plays out exactly how it sounds. The laser is used to administer bursts of energy to the treatment site, which damages the hair follicle and reduces hair growth wherever you need it most. Unlike shaving, tweezing, or waxing, laser hair removal is not something you can do on your own. The process must be performed at a clinic such as LYWS, as it requires an in-depth understanding of hair growth cycles and what the laser technology can and cannot achieve.
The benefits of laser hair removal are endless and can help you get off the hair removal hamster wheel once and for all.
Little to no side effects
The most significant drawback to traditional hair removal methods like shaving and waxing is what happens next, which can range from minor irritation and redness to bumps, swelling, burns, nasty nicks, blistering, and scarring. On top of that, you have the unsightly and painful ingrown hairs that are often left behind. Laser hair removal also has side effects, but for the vast majority of patients, there are no side effects at all. The laser is precise and targets hairs down at the follicle beneath the skin.
Cost-effective over the long-term
We aren’t going to sugarcoat it; laser hair removal has a larger upfront cost in comparison to other hair removal methods. But because laser hair removal is permanent (quickly reducing hair over a handful of treatments), it is extremely cost-effective over the long-term. You won’t need to continually purchase razors and creams, at-home hair removal treatments, or spend money on monthly waxing appointments — all of which can add up to hundreds of dollars out of your pocket over the course of a year.
To piggyback off the previous benefit, you will find that hair can take weeks or months to grow back following laser hair removal. And with each session, that gap widens. Even when hair does grow back, it’s thinner than before. The goal is to be hairless where you want and need to be, and laser hair removal will do that for you.
Remove hair from anywhere
What most women don’t realize, at least not at first, is that not all hair removal methods work for every body part, skin types, and colors. And this almost always leads to irritation and pain like we mentioned earlier. Laser hair removal can be performed anywhere you have unsightly hair, whether it be sensitive areas such as your bikini line, face, and underarms or larger areas such as your legs or back.
Perhaps one of the biggies in terms of benefits is how fast laser hair removal treatments are. While every patient is different and each treatment is different depending on the area in question, laser hair removal can take as little as 20 minutes to an hour and span anywhere from 3 to 6 sessions. Naturally, this will save you time over the long-term since you won’t need to worry about shaving daily.
