6 Reasons To Try Laser Hair Removal

6 Reasons To Try Laser Hair Removal

Dealing with unwanted body hair can be a time-consuming, monotonous process.  While waxing, shaving, and tweezing are typically effective methods, they aren't a long-term solution.  

If you want to achieve permanent hair reduction, without the bumps, nicks and ingrown hairs, laser hair removal is here for you.

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive method of permanent hair reduction that uses highly concentrated light to penetrate hair follicles. This light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles and converted into heat, destroying the pigment, and preventing new hair from growing.  

Laser hair removal rose to fame because of its’ effectiveness, efficiency, and convenience. Laser treatments are fast (usually under 15 minutes) and can be done virtually anywhere on the body.  

One of the most compelling benefits of laser hair removal is that it can give you around 90% permanent reduction in hair growth, depending on the laser device used.

Considering laser hair removal but not sure if it’s worth it?  This post will highlight six laser hair removal benefits that might convince you to take the plunge.  

1. Treatments are fast and easy

Laser hair removal is a quick, relatively painless procedure that typically takes 15 minutes per session depending on the size of the area. You can go back to work right after your appointment, with no time off required.

2. Laser hair removal helps with acne

Laser hair removal can even help with acne! Each hair follicle has an oil gland attached to it. When the growth gets removed, dead skin cells, bacteria, and sebum no longer clog pores. This means fewer breakouts!

3. You don't need to grow out hair between treatments

One of the worst parts of waxing is that you need to grow out the hair in between treatments.  If you want to maintain that buttery smooth skin, laser hair removal is for you. 

You can get laser hair removal on any area of your body, even if you don’t want to grow in between treatments. Laser hair removal allows you to keep your skin hairless without having to wait for another appointment!

4. Laser hair removal eliminates ingrown hairs 

If you wax or shave, you're familiar with the annoyance of ingrown hairs - the itching, redness, and inflammation. 

There is a way to end the suffering. 

Ingrown hairs are caused when hair grows back into the skin instead of out, causing pain and irritation. 

Laser hair removal eliminates ingrown hairs by removing the root of the hair follicle so they can never grow back in again! You can even get rid of those pesky peach fuzz hairs on your face with laser treatments. 

You're welcome.

5. Laser hair removal saves you money

Say goodbye to those expensive monthly waxes, new razors, and shaving cream. 

Although many people think laser hair removal is costly, waxing is the most expensive hair removal method by a landslide.

In fact, women who wax just 1-2 times a month will spend an average of $23,000 on hair removal in a lifetime!

Compared to waxing, laser hair removal can save you an average of $20,000. If you shave, you can save an average of $7,000 by switching to laser hair removal. 

6. Laser hair removal offers permanent results

A series of laser hair removal treatments will provide you with permanent, life-long results.

Our clients typically report about 90% permanent reduction in hair growth after completing a series of treatments using the Candela GentleMax Pro laser.

After every treatment, you will notice a gradual lessening of hair.  Any hair that grows back in between appointments will be significantly sparser, finer and lighter. 

Once you complete the initial series of treatments, maintenance treatments (just once or twice a year) may be recommended, depending on how your hair responds.
