Is Laser Hair Removal Right for You?

Published on: February 19, 2019

Where do you shave or wax to remove hair? Both men and women have areas that they may maintain to keep hair-free, whether it is legs, underarms, the back or chest. Hair grows quickly and in different cycles, so even waxing can only keep the area hair-free for a few weeks. The permanent option to maintain hair-free skin is laser hair removal, but is it right for you?

How Laser Hair Removal Works

With laser hair removal, light energy is used through a cosmetic laser device to destroy the hair follicles. A dermatologist or skin specialist can perform the procedure, with most sessions taking less than an hour. Once the targeted follicles are destroyed, they will no longer grow hair. However, in denser hair areas, a few sessions may be needed to completely remove all the follicles during their growth cycle.

Why People Love Laser Hair Removal

Those who have had this procedure done and are happy with the results often wish they would have done it sooner. Some of the benefits they enjoy after laser hair removal include:

  • No more shaving or waxing
  • Convenience – never worrying about needing to shave
  • Less time spent on maintaining their appearance
  • Smoother, softer skin in treated areas
  • Long-term savings on hair removal products

If these benefits sound good to you, laser hair removal might be the right choice. It can give you permanent results in just 2-3 short sessions, giving you skin that you can bare at a moment’s notice without worrying about whether you need to shave. Contact your local dermatologist that offer laser hair removal for a consultation to determine if it is right for you.
