Let’s face it: shaving your legs and underarms can be a pain. You often cut yourself, the hair grows back in no time at all, and it’s bristly and itchy. Also, razors tend to grow blunt fast, and you end up having to buy another. If you can empathize with this, then laser hair removal could be the option for you.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a process where unwanted hair is removed by means of exposure to pulses of laser light.
How Does It Work?
Pulses of laser light are emitted by a handheld device, targeting the follicles of unwanted hair. These pulses of laser light destroy the hair follicle, thwarting growth.
What are the Benefits?
There are a great many benefits to undergoing laser hair removal. Let’s take a look at some of them:
No More Cuts
Cutting yourself with a razor blade is never fun. Laser hair removal stops the need to shave, therefore saving your skin from the blade.
When hair grows back, it can be extremely irksome. Skin irritation often appears, and your legs, arms, or other shaven areas feel bristly in no time at all. Laser hair removal stops this from happening, and when hair does grow back, it’s a lot softer. This is due to the fact that the hair follicle is often damaged during the laser process and the hair itself is a new one, not the same hair that’s been cut. When a hair is cut, as opposed to being fully removed, it grows back a lot coarser.
Save Money on Razors and Wax
Constantly having to buy razors, wax, or hair removal creams and strips can be a drain on the wallet. Laser hair removal can be a more long-term financial investment.
What Areas Can Be Targeted?
Let’s take a look at some of the areas that can be treated:.
