Is Laser Hair Removal Worth It?

You have tried everything from shaving, waxing, and tweezing your unwanted hair and nothing seems to help. The hair keeps growing back. Your hair is just doing what comes naturally in its growth cycle. At any given time, each strand of your hair may be in one of the phases of growth.

One way to permanently interrupt that cycle is a laser hair removal treatment. Laser hair removal is one of the most popular non-invasive hair removal treatments.  According to the American Society for Dermatological Surgery, in 2017, nearly half a million people had the procedure done and the number is increasing every year. It’s a simple process of using a concentrated beam of light to penetrate hair follicles. The pigment in the hair follicles become damaged at the root after the light is absorbed and prevents it from growing.

Why Laser Hair Removal?

It Works Best on Three Areas

Laser hair removal can work on any part of the body that you would like to remove hair from, it is especially effective on the underarms, on the face, and the bikini areas.   

Helps People With Thick Coarse Hair

If you have dark, stubborn hair, laser hair removal could be the answer. The light is attracted to dark pigments or color in the hair follicle. Downside? It may take a little longer to fully work on thicker hair. Some hair may be resistant due to hormonal changes, or other hair bulbs could become active at the time of treatment.   

No More Ingrown Hairs

Unlike waxing and threading, you will not have to deal with painful and unsightly ingrown hairs. Neither will you have to tolerate irritation or razor burns. Laser hair removal can even improve the issue of ingrown hairs.

No Surface Hair

You don’t need to have surface hair for a laser hair removal treatment. You are encouraged to shave before your session so the laser can penetrate into the root of the hair. To be more effective you also shouldn’t tweeze, wax, or bleach any hair one month before your session.  

Precise

Laser hair removal directly targets hairs right down at the follicle. This is a benefit over intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal, using a laser makes it more suited to treating people with dark skin tones. The precision also means you should get results sooner.

Where to Go for Laser Hair Removal Treatment

All the other traditional methods of hair removal take money and time and eventually the hair grows back, sometimes even thicker than before.
