Ditch the Razor With Laser Hair Removal: 3 Reasons to Give It a Try

The average adult woman shaves her legs and underarms at least 200 times per year! Think of everything you could accomplish if so many hours of your life were not wasted shaving. Laser hair removal can give you that freedom! You’re probably familiar with laser hair removal, so here are three reasons you should give it a try.

First, What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is proven to reduce the hair that grows on the treated areas of your body. You can treat nearly any area on your face or body! Laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of laser light that is absorbed by the pigment (or color) in your hair. This causes severe and lasting damage to your hair follicle. Once all of your hair follicles in a specific location, like your underarms or legs, become permanently disabled, they stop growing hair and leave your skin smooth and silky.

Laser Hair Removal Safely Targets Individual Hair Follicles

Laser hair removal is a very simple process that uses high intensity laser beams to destroy hair follicles without harming any of the surrounding skin tissue. Damaged hair follicles cannot continue to actively grow hair, so laser hair removal is capable of reducing or even eliminating the amount of hair on your body. This is an excellent treatment choice for stubborn and difficult areas like the underarms, bikini region, and legs.

It Safely Treats All Skin Types and Colors

Laser hair removal has evolved significantly since the first early technologies were developed. Early lasers often burned the skin and caused unwanted reactions. Fortunately, the lasers used today are very safe and effective. They can treat all skin types and colors – even darker skin colors that were previously untreatable.

Just a Few Simple Treatments Will Free You From Your Razor

Since laser hair removal is a fairly simple process, you won’t need to endure a complicated recovery period. You’ll just notice that your treated hairs look like small black dots, as if stubble is growing in. This is okay! They will be naturally expelled over the course of two weeks to leave you with silky smooth skin.

Since hair grows in cycles, not all hair follicles will respond to the first session of laser hair removal. Most patients find that they need about six sessions for full and lasting results. You can get started today to have silky smooth skin before bikini season comes back around.
