Women, and even men, have the same problem when it comes to unwanted hair; they all want it to be eliminated. This is the reason why they opt for waxing, shaving, and methods like depilatories and electrolysis, which are all time consuming and not very effective, in removing unwanted body hair. This is where laser hair removal comes in. So, what is laser hair removal and what to expect from this procedure?
What is Laser Hair Removal?
The use of laser technology for different skin treatments has been more understood nowadays, making it possible to develop a laser treatment that works for hair removal. This procedure uses a special laser to eliminate unwanted hair. The laser targets and destroys the roots of the hair strand so it won’t be able to reproduce new hair.
The main benefits of laser hair removal are the immediate results. Unlike other methods, this method can instantly deliver the results you want right after doing the procedure. It is also very safe if correctly done and lets you feel no pain unlike waxing and shaving. More importantly, the effects last longer. You will experience unwanted-hair-free skin for weeks, months, or even years.
No treatment is perfect, and laser treatment is not an exception to that. One of the downsides of this method is the cost. If not all, most clinics that offer laser hair removal charge higher fee than any other hair removal method. Another one is the minor side effects it may cause to the skin, such as itching, rashes and small skin discoloration, if not performed properly.
