Pros and Cons of Laser Hair Removal

The best bet for laser hair removal.

In this modern age, you have many options for personal grooming. In the past, you’ve been limited to not much more than shaving, waxing, and chemicals. Laser hair removal emerged onto the scene several years ago, and in that time it’s rocketed in popularity. But is this process right for you? What do you need to know about how laser hair removal compares to other procedures.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a process where a technician uses a special apparatus to burn the follicles away. There are many different types of laser treatment, each of which uses its own specialized equipment. Laser hair removal differs from popular methods in the following ways:

  • Immediacy: Since laser treatment only targets hair in the active growth stage, you typically need about five treatments to complete the cycle. This can take up to six weeks. By contrast, waxing and shaving provide immediate results.
  • Irritation: Laser hair removal can occasionally leave you with a sunburn effect, that can last for up to an entire day. This isn’t very severe, or common. Shaving and waxing come with their own irritation concerns.
  • Effectiveness: While it takes much longer to complete every session of the laser cycle, the results last far longer than other methods. Shaving requires daily maintenance, and hair starts to become visible three weeks after waxing. By contrast, laser hair removal lasts for up to a year.

The benefits of semi-permanent laser hair removal

While it takes more time upfront, once you’re finished, you don’t have to worry about shaving or using creams for a long time. You get more time to finish getting ready in the morning. You also don’t have to schedule as many appointments during a year as you would if you were waxing.

Where can I get laser hair removal applied?

This technique is safe to use all over your body. You can get rid of unwanted facial hair, sculpt your eyebrows, get smoother arms and legs, and more. This method is safe for trimming the bikini line, including a full Brazilian. Laser hair removal is common for both men and women.
