Ready to bare your skin for spring and summer fashions? Tank tops, shorts, dresses and beach-wear will definitely reveal your winter fuzz. It’s hair removal time!
How are you planning to take it off? The unwanted hair that is. Let’s check your options:
Shaving? Not a bad option if you don’t mind a few red bumps, ingrown hairs, or the odd razor nick or burn. Ouch again. Oh, and it grows back. Fast and prickly.
Waxing or sugaring? Ouch factor is high, especially in those (ahem) more tender areas. And you get your hair back in a few weeks. It lasts longer than shaving though.
Depilatories? Cream that fuzz away. If you don’t mind smelling like you just had a perm, or your hair growing back sooner than you want it to. Not to mention those strong chemicals that can burn, blister, sting or itch.
Laser? Yes! We saved the best for last. Laser hair removal can effectively help you say good-bye to unwanted hair.
Here are four reasons why laser is better than other forms of hair removal:
- We do all the work. You lie back and relax. We spread a cooling gel on the area to be treated and direct a hand held laser device at the hair follicles.
- Lasers have the ability to permanently remove hair The melanin in the follicle absorbs heat from the laser and the follicle is destroyed. A few sessions are needed to remove all the hair because of a variance in growth cycles.
- Laser hair removal lasts. Over time, laser is less expensive than waxing because the hair doesn’t grow back.
- It’s more comfortable than waxing.. 87% of those using laser for hair removal said they would do it again.
Common areas women have treated are the legs, bikini area, underarms, and upper lip and it’s also a great option for men! Especially those with coarse dark back and shoulder hair, or unwanted body hair on the chest. Those are large areas to wax or shave. Laser can significantly reduce the amount of hair growth in these areas with a series of treatments.
