Nothing is more frustrating than shaving your legs, underarms and intimate areas just to be plagued with razor burn, ingrown hairs and patches of missed hair. Getting rid of your body hair once and for all with laser hair removal has so many more benefits than just smooth skin. Our medical spa experts wanted to share with you their top five benefits of getting laser hair removal.
1. Laser Hair Removal Treatments are Quick and Easy
While laser hair removal may sound like a long and involved process, treatments are relatively quick and easy. Each treatment involves your desired area being numbed with a topical anesthetic (to stave off any discomfort from the lasers) just a few minutes of actual laser treatment. Small areas like the bikini line and underarms just take 20 minutes per treatment. Not to mention, you’ll be able to return to your normal daily activities including work immediately following treatment.
2. Laser Hair Removal Eliminates Ingrown Hairs and Razor Burn
Shaving your body hair isn’t just annoying and time consuming, but it can also be really painful for sensitive skin. No matter how gentle you are and how many soothing products you use on your skin, sometimes razor burn and ingrown hairs are inevitable. Laser hair removal helps permanently reduce the amount of body hair that grows in your treated areas, so you don’t have to worry about the aftermath of shaving ever again.
3. Laser Hair Removal will Save You Money in the Long-Term
Do you ever think about how much money you spend on your razors, shaving creams, skin soothing lotions, wax strips, etc.? Over time, it all starts adding up. Laser hair removal may seem like a pricey investment, but when you think about how much money you’ll save on all your shaving and waxing necessities in the future, you’ll see your return sooner than you realize.
4. Laser Hair Removal is Very Effective
There’s a reason why laser hair removal is such a popular and well-known medspa treatment. It’s because patients are able to see the results quickly and for the long-term! On average, patients are able to see up to a 25 percent reduction in hair after their very first treatment and up to a 95 percent reduction in hair following their final treatment. Not only that, but patients only need one follow-up treatment every year or so to maintain their results.
5. Laser Hair Removal can Give Your Confidence a Boost
While this one may be obvious, it’s also one of the main reasons why our patients look into laser hair removal in the first place. Having thick, noticeable body hair can be a frustrating and embarrassing problem to have. Laser hair removal can get rid of your dark, stubborn stubble so you can start living your life care-free and focusing on what’s most important.
