If you are interested in laser hair removal but haven’t experienced it yet, it’s helpful to have as much information as possible. Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses light to damage the hair follicles at the root. This results in significantly less hair following the procedure and less future growth. There are several reasons why you might want to pursue laser hair removal. Many people want a more permanent alternative to waxing or shaving. Regardless of why you are considering laser hair removal, the following are some facts about the procedure.

LONG-LASTING RESULTS

Laser hair removal offers significantly longer-lasting results than shaving, waxing, or other hair removal methods. Shaving does remove hair, but new growth happens within just a few days in most cases. Waxing is better but still requires another visit a few weeks after the first appointment. In contrast, laser hair removal is essentially permanent once you finish the treatments and any hair that does grow back is much lighter. 

TIME-SAVING BENEFITS

Since laser hair removal offers long lasting results, you can save a lot of time. You don’t have to worry about shaving every day or booking wax appointments several times a year. This alone is a big reason to pursue laser hair removal. Once you finish the laser hair treatments, you don’t have to worry about removing unwanted hair for months, if not years. 

NO DOWNTIME AND FEW SIDE EFFECTS

If you haven’t had laser hair removal, you might be concerned that it’s painful or requires significant downtime. That’s not the case! After each treatment, you may have some minor side effects that go away after a few days. These include swelling and/or redness at the treatment site. During the procedure, there should be minimal discomfort. For the vast majority of people, the benefits of laser hair removal far outweigh the risks of side effects.

START NOW TO BE READY FOR SUMMER

Since winter and the cold weather are upon us, you might think laser hair removal can wait until closer to spring or summertime. Now is the perfect time to start laser hair removal treatments. Typically, it can take up to 6 treatments to see final results, and most sessions are scheduled between 4 and 6 weeks apart. If you were to start treatments in the next few weeks, you have the perfect amount of time to remove your unwanted hair before the warmer weather arrives.
