6 Cons of Doing Laser Hair Removal Laser hair removal here, laser hair removal there, laser hair removal everywhere. Yes, laser hair removal is magical but it has its disadvantages. Let’s list 6 cons of doing laser hair removal. 1. It may seem like an expensive investment: And it is. A whole treatment of laser hair removal can cost $2,000 for a whole year. I mean, this is the down payment of a car! In every session, you’ll have to pay at least $300, so you need to be prepared to collect his quantity every half a month or so. Or you can pay it all together and forget you ever did it. Yes, laser hair removal is a great procedure and every great thing comes at great price. Think about it very well before deciding what to do. 2. The side effects of laser hair removal can be ugly: Always remember that a beauty procedure can’t be done by amateurs. This applies to hair and nail treatments, plastic surgeries, and, of course, hair removal. When not properly apply, laser hair removal can cause burns, blisters, scars, hyperpigmentation, and hypopigmentation. Additionally, laser hair removal requires a better aftercare of your skin. You’ll have to protect it using a good sunscreen (preferably over 60 SPF), moisturizer, lotion, and mild cleanser. This requires that you spend more money on keeping your body hair-free. 3. Laser hair removal is painful: Some people feel it like rubber constantly hitting the skin and others find it more uncomfortable. There are testimonies of some women that need to take two Advil’s before starting the procedure. Of course, the doctor may offer you to use anesthetic cream but this comes at an additional cost (quite an expensive one). Overall, if you have a low threshold of pain you should go for a less painful procedure like shaving. 4. It requires a full commitment: Once you start this procedure is important you keep doing it. One session is not going to do miracles on your skin, you’ll need them all. If you decide not to follow my instructions, you’ll notice how your hair will grow in patches. You won’t only have hair, but also huge patches of hair combined with hairless parts. Hello, cheetah girl! So if you’re afraid of a long-term commitment, don’t get laser hair removal because it’ll demand you a lot of time. 5. It can’t be done only for special occasions: Don’t plan on getting it for Valentines or the Holidays because you won’t see the results right away. As explained before, laser hair removal takes time and commitment. 6. Laser hair removal can’t be applied on the eyebrows, I repeat, It can’t be applied on the eyebrows: Trust me, don’t do laser hair removal on your eyebrows unless you want to lose your vision for a few hours. The laser shouldn’t touch your eyes. Your eyes need to be protected at all costs with a pair of glasses the doctor will give you. If you’re planning on doing your eyebrows try threading, tweezing or waxing. Take up your chances. Laser hair removal can be magical but it’s not completely fail-proof. Think about it very well before doing it and don’t despair, remember there are other hair removal procedures you can try.
