Plucking, shaving, waxing and tweezing – all are popular techniques for the removal of unwanted hair. The fix they provide, however, is only temporary.
Laser hair removal is the ultimate solution to everyone’s unwanted hair problems. It is a process that involves destroying the hair follicles by exposing them to pulses of intense laser light. And it was not until 1995 and 1996 when laser hair removal was made commercially available at laser clinics, making it fairly new as a cosmetic procedure.
Once the hair follicle is destroyed by the laser light, it will lose its ability to regrow hair for a very long period of time. And the person who received the laser hair removal treatment can enjoy smooth, hairless skin on their face, arm, underarm, leg, or the treated area.
However, several treatment sessions are required to achieve desired results, with the exact number of treatments depending on the skin colour, the area of the body being worked on, and other parameters. The average number of treatments it takes to get the full result is between 8 and 12.
If you need a little bit more convincing before deciding to get a laser hair removal procedure, here are the undeniable benefits of this high-tech hair removal method:
- It’s a Relatively Painless Procedure
Everyone knows that waxing, plucking and tweezing are conventional hair removal methods that never fail to deliver pain. Shaving is mostly painless, but sometimes the razor can cause accidental nicks and cuts that are annoyingly painful. With laser hair removal, however, the entire process is guaranteed to be far less painful and the laser machine comes with a cooling mechanism.
- It’s Treatment Speed is Fast
While it takes multiple sessions to get full results, each treatment session can take anywhere from less than a minute to around one hour, depending on the area being treated. This is because a laser hair removal device can only cover roughly the size of a quarter every second. So the larger area, the longer it takes for a session to finish.
- It’s Been Proven to be Very Effective
Results are everything when it comes to cosmetic procedures, and laser hair removal has been proven to be a very effective method a lot of times already. In fact, it only takes an average of 8 to 12 sessions before a patient can see the real results of his/her hair removal treatment. Considering that it is a long-term solution to a recurring problem which only requires a few sessions, laser hair removal is indeed a very effective method for destroying the hair.
