1. IT SAVES TIME AND MONEY
Think about all the time you spend shaving your legs in your tub before going out or going on vacation. Laser hair removal promises a life of stubble free skin with low maintenance. But more importantly, it saves you time and money. If you compare the cost of waxing versus the cost of laser hair removal, you’ll see how much money you’re spending on these services on a recurring basis. Laser also provides lasting results over a shorter period of time, whereas waxing requires monthly and in some cases, weekly touch up.
2. REDUCE INGROWN HAIRS & SENSITIVITY
Those itchy bumps that emerge after waxing and shaving are reason enough to choose laser treatments. When we expose our skin to the irritation caused by shaving and waxing, we increase our chances of skin sensitivity and damage. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, reduces ingrown hairs by safely eliminating hairs without irritation.
3. IT’S LOW MAINTENANCE
One of the best parts about laser treatments is that you don’t have to go through that annoying, embarrassing phase of letting your hair grow out in order to prep for your next appointment. Laser hair removal allows you to continue managing unwanted hair until your next appointment. Depending on your hair and skin type, most sessions only require you to return every four to six weeks, which is significantly less than your average waxing or threading sessions.
It’s clear that laser hair treatments are a preferred option to shaving and waxing. With that said, it’s also important to note that if you choose to go the laser route, you should avoid sun exposure after your treatments. If you do go into the sun, it’s advised that you apply SPF. As well, the results of laser hair removal are different for every person. The number of sessions you need are dependent on a variety of factors including the pigment of your hair.
