Laser hair removal has been around for a number of years and both men and women use this long-lasting technique for a number of different reasons. While there are many different ways to rid your body of unwanted hair, such as shaving or waxing, these options are not as effective as laser hair removal.

Unwanted hair growth appears on many areas of both men and women. Women may have problems with unwanted facial hair such as growth on their chins, eyebrow area, and upper lip and other areas like knuckles and toes. Men will also use laser hair removal for eyebrows but also for thick or excessive hair growth on their chest, backs, and necks. Tweezing and waxing can be impractical for these areas can cause other concerns.

Razors can leave your skin red, burning, sore, itchy and scratched. It can also cause bumps or ingrown hair. You should also avoid using any products that will dry out recently shaved skin to avoid itchiness.

Waxing can cause your skin to react and become red or inflamed. It is not uncommon to experience a breakout of pimples after waxing. Other common side effects of waxing include red bumps, pain, change in skin color, bruising, and having skin removed.

Laser hair removal can reduce ingrown hairs far more effectively than shaving or waxing can. Ingrown hairs are caused

when the hair is broken off unevenly. During regrowth, the hair grows under the skin and causes irritation. While they aren’t serious, the red bumps or painful sores they cause can be embarrassing. Ingrown hairs are more common in people with curly or coarse hair.

While no method of hair removal is 100% permanent, laser hair removal has been proven permanently reduce the amount of body hair that grows. If the hair does grow back, it tends to be sparse, finer and lighter in color than the original hair.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Hair does not grow at the same speed nor all at once which is the reason more than one laser session is needed. Each individual strand is constantly undergoing one of three phases. Laser hair removal is most effective when the hair is actively growing, in the anagen phase. Laser hair removal works when a concentrated beam of light is aimed at the follicle and converts this energy into heat to heat up the hair follicle and prevents any further growth. The other benefits include the fact it is fast, safe, and effective. The fact that it is by far the most precise method of hair removal there is.

By far the most superior method to rid your body of unwanted hair, laser hair removal provides multiple benefits to both men and women. This treatment is safe and effective and can reduce razor burn, ingrown hair, post-wax hives, bruising, and allergic reactions.
