Do you have unwanted body hair? If so, laser hair removal could be the answer. Performed in your dermatologist’s office, laser hair removal is a safe and effective solution to excess hair. Here are a few of the reasons you should consider putting down the razor and making an appointment for laser hair removal instead.
Safer for Surrounding Skin
When you shave, the razor doesn’t just take away the hair. As it passes over the skin, cuts and irritation are likely. That is why so many people end up bleeding or with bumps after shaving. With laser hair removal, the laser specifically targets the hair. The surrounding skin is untouched, so there is no irritation.
Less Frequent Treatments
With shaving, you can to constantly maintain your results. Some people need to shave every day to control regrowth, and few people can go more than two days without needing to shave again. After an initial set of treatments, most people do not need to repeat laser hair removal.
Imagine never have to worry about your unwanted hair again. That is what you get with laser hair removal. For 90 percent of patients, laser hair removal is permanent. Many patients get this result after an average of three to five sessions, spaced about four to six weeks apart. Depending on the area being treated and the thickness of the hair, some patients need more treatments. Occasionally, some patients need maintenance treatments once or twice a year to deal with regrowth. However, even if you need maintenance treatments, taking care of your excess hair with laser hair removal is still more efficient than shaving.
