When it comes to hair removal there are a lot of options out there. Each option has a pro and a con. With shaving, for example, your hair will grow back in a few days and you’ll subject your skin to ingrown hairs or razor bumps. While waxing will make sure your hair doesn’t grow back for a longer amount of time, it’s still an incredibly painful process.
There are some more permanent or semi-permanent options out there, such as laser hair removal. This option damages the hair follicle in order to prevent future growth. It does this by targeting the melanin in your hair and it burns the follicle. It will only take a few sessions to notice the significant difference in your hair growth. This is a great method for minimizing hair growth and you’ll finally be able to throw away your razor. Before you decide on this option, we’ve narrowed down some important pros and cons to help you better determine if this is the right choice for you.
Laser hair removal is not permanent, but it does help to significantly lower hair growth. Some patients can go a few months without shaving after finishing their treatments.
Out of all the hair removal treatments on the market today, this is still the fastest option out there. A session can last anywhere from five to 30 minutes. It depends largely on where you’re getting your treatment. But overall, you can expect to be in and out fairly quickly.
There is nothing more painful than waxing. Especially when it comes to waxing your bikini area. Laser hair removal is uncomfortable, but it is nowhere near as painful as waxing.
If you decide to do laser hair removal then it will take a few sessions. You oftentimes won’t see the results immediately. It may take multiple sessions before you see results.
If you decide to go to an amateur laser technician than your treatment can result in burns or scars. This is not very common, but for this reason alone, it is always best to go to a recognized and trained laser hair removal center.
Laser hair removal works best on fair skin with dark hair. If you don’t fit this description it does not mean that the treatment won’t work on you. It just means you will need a few extra sessions.
Is it worth it?
Absolutely! This is still the only hair removal option out there that can guarantee semi-permanent results. You will leave each session feeling fresh and smooth.
