6 Life Changing Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Published September 3rd, 2021 by Thepracticeagency

 Are you tired of having to go for waxing appointments or spend hours shaving every week? Considering our options for alternate forms of hair removal?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should look into laser hair removal. There are many benefits to getting this procedure done, but some people are unsure what the end results will look like. 

That's why we compiled a list of 6 life-changing benefits of laser hair removal. Keep reading to learn more about what laser hair removal can do for you.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

 Laser hair removal is one of the leading strategies for hair removal on the market today. It's growing in popularity with each passing year, and more and more people are interested in it.

For a quick review of what it is, laser hair removal is basically just a way to remove body hair in a quick, minimally invasive way. The device that technicians use shoots a high concentration of light to hair follicles at the target area. 

This melts the hair, destroying it over time. With more and more sessions, body hair can leave for good.

1. Long-Lasting Results

Tired of having to shave and shave every other day just to have smooth, hair-free skin? We are too.

That's why we recommend laser hair removal. Laser hair removal works to eliminate the hair deep at the root. For this, you need to come for multiple sessions.

But after just a few appointments, your body hair will likely permanently leave. No more having to shave every day or make appoints at the salon every week!

2. Softer, Smoother Skin

We've all been there. You shave your hair (wherever it may be) thinking it'll feel soft for at least one day, only to rub your hand across your skin the next day and it feels like needles. Yep, that's the pain of having to shave.

But did you know that with laser hair removal, you can eliminate that pain? Laser hair removal works to remove hair all the way down to the root. The chances of your hair coming back are pretty low, too.

So when you get laser hair removal, your skin will feel silky smooth for much longer compared to shaving or even waxing. Another one of the great benefits of laser hair removal is that new hair that grows in will be softer and thinner. 

Whenever your hair does end up growing back (which in many cases- it never does!), the new hair follicles won't bother you. No more dreading the post-shave symptoms!

3. Eliminates Ingrown Hairs

Ever suffered from ingrown hairs? They're a real nuisance that causes tons of discomfort and in some cases, even pain. 

If you're unfamiliar with ingrown hairs (lucky you), they're pretty much just hairs that were shaved or wax and grow incorrectly back through the skin. Usually, hairs stick straight out, like the diagrams many of us have seen. Ingrown hairs get caught at one of the layers of skin, causing discomfort.

In some situations, ingrown hairs can even turn into cysts. These cysts cause extreme pain in some cases and can even become infected. Ingrown hairs are most common in people with curly or coarse hairs, but really anyone can get them.

This is one of the many downsides to shaving and waxing. When the hair does manage to grow back, it's much rougher and can get stuck in the skin.

Laser hair removal methods work to eliminate this issue by targeting the hair deep at its root. When your hair is targeted at such a deep level, the chances of hairs growing incorrectly are drastically decreased.

4. Saves You Both Time and Money

If you're someone who grows a ton of body hair at a very quick rate, you know the pains of having to shave extremely often. Sometimes it feels like you just shaved yesterday, but you've already been covered in hair again.

This is one of the worst parts of shaving. It takes so much time out of your already busy schedule.

Using laser treatment to remove your hair saves you time because it works to permanently remove the hair in the target area over time. It won't happen overnight or just with one quick section. But with just a few visits to the specialist, and you can kiss that body hair goodbye.

With that said, laser hair removal can also save you money! While the procedure itself isn't the cheapest, we suggest thinking of it as an investment.  

With laser hair removal, full package procedures linger for around $900. In the end, having permanent hair removal via laser treatment would save you tons of money. 

5. Treatments are Quick

Depending on which ways to remove hair you prefer, trying to get rid of body hair can take a while. The longer methods for hair removal are waxing and threading, with some sessions lasting up to an hour. 

With shaving too, you might have to invest a little bit more time. This is especially true if you're prone to cuts or have thick hair. 

Did you know that laser hair removal sessions are super quick? Some are quicker than others but most don't last more than an hour. If you're only doing one spot, you can even come on your lunch break and finish in less than 30 minutes.

6. Painless Procedure

Most patients report that laser hair removal causes little to no discomfort whenever the procedure happens. There's no need for any extra precautions such as sedation either.

In some cases, the most that patients say they felt was a sensation similar to someone snapping a rubber band on their skin. If you feel any of these discomforts, please let your technician know so they can make adjustments. 

But even with that, a small snap here and there is nothing compared to the pain of threading or waxing. Shaving also runs the risk of you accidentally cutting or bruising yourself. If you want a pain-free hair removal method, consider laser hair removal.
