It seems like we all have points in our lives where we want an easier solution for those bits of unwanted body hair. Whether it is the bikini line, the legs, or even our forearms, lips, and brow line, we waste precious hours waxing, shaving, buffing, or creaming those hairs away. Laser hair removal is one of the best ways to manage or eliminate unwanted body hair for several reasons. 

What Exactly Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is often a relatively easy process, but unless a certified laser technician does the hair removal, there can be serious side effects. This technician will apply pulsed laser light to a minimal area of unwanted hair. Here the pulses of light enter the follicle and destroy the hair production issues at their root.

However, your hair has three separate phases, and hair can only be removed effectively with lasers for one of the three phases. This stage is referred to as the growth stage or growth phase. This is also why those seeking laser hair removal need several appointments before they are free of most hair.

The Benefits Of Lasering Your Unwanted Hair

There are many different hair removal options, such as epilators, shaving, waxing, and harsh creams. But when it comes down to it, laser removal can beat most of them. The pros of using laser hair removal make it really worth the time and expense.

It Is Far Less Painful Than Other Methods

When you think of a laser removing your hair, it sounds at first impression like it could be incredibly painful. But the opposite is frequently true, and many people who use laser hair removal say it feels much more tolerable than some alternatives. A common comparison is that it feels like being snapped with a rubber band.

It’s Very Precise

Not only can it be used to clear out areas of unwanted hair growth, but it can also be applied to individual hairs. For those that grapple with one or two persistent hairs that always seem to come back, laser removal can be effective.

It Can Be Used Anywhere 

Some methods are limited to what areas of the body they can be used on, which means a universal solution is nearly impossible. Laser removal, however, can be used on any part of the body where hair grows. Perfect for difficult-to-shave or super-painful-to-wax areas.

It’s Quick

Most people want a quick fix that they don’t have to work too hard for, and that’s laser removal. You will need a few sessions spaced out to ensure you get all the hairs, but each session can be as quick as a few minutes. The larger the treatment area, the longer it will take, but the reverse is also true. 

It Stops Regrowth

Shaving, waxing, plucking, it’s all the same. The hair comes back eventually because there is still a functioning follicle. Laser removal kills the hair production tissues, so they physically cannot grow hair back again.

It’s Long-Term

Laser removal is a long-term, permanent solution to the problem of unwanted body hair. In some cases, there may need to be follow-up sessions down the road, but in most situations, these are only needed for several months or even years after the initial treatments.

The longevity of the treatment also makes it one of the most cost-effective ways to remove body hair. The best part is, the darkest and most visible hair is usually the hair that gives the most consistent results.
