Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: All About Laser Hair Removal

laser hair removalLet’s face it — shaving, waxing, and tweezing get tedious quickly. A month into summer, your legs are starting to show stubble and you’re fighting razor bumps on your bikini line. But you don’t have to let your unwanted hair get the best of you. With laser hair removal, you can finally enjoy being hair free. Forever.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about laser hair removal, now is the time. It’s safe, it’s easy and it’s affordable. Here’s everything you need to know about laser hair removal to see if it’s an option you should be considering.

The Coarser, the Better

While laser hair removal can be used on most skin and hair types, the best results are gained from light skin and dark hair. That doesn’t mean it won’t work on dark skin or light hair, it just means different techniques or technology may be needed to get the best results. And the coarser the hair is, the better the treatment. So, while laser hair removal will work on your legs, it’s much more efficient on underarms and bikini areas.

It Works Almost Anywhere

Laser hair removal can be done almost everywhere on the body, including underarms, legs, bikini, upper lip, chin, stomach, back, and arms. And while most marketing is focused on women, men can also benefit from laser hair removal — especially around the chest, back and neck areas.

It’s Not that Expensive

Considering laser hair removal lasts a lifetime, in comparison to the cost of razors and waxing, it’s not that expensive. Laser hair removal is surprisingly affordable, especially when purchasing package deals, which can offer a significant discount.

You Need to Prep

Skin and hair need to be prepared for laser hair removal. Stop tanning at least four weeks before your session, and for two weeks after. Withhold from waxing the area getting treated because the laser needs to focus on the hair follicle, which can pull out during waxing. A day or two before your appointment, shave the area. Doing it yourself before you go in saves time and money as there may be a fee if shaving is required.

It Hurts, But Not that Bad

Getting a laser hair treatment is not going to feel like a massage, but it’s not going to be the most painful thing you’ve ever experienced, either. Most people compare the feeling to getting snapped lightly with a rubber band. It stings, but it’s tolerable. Keep in mind that the more sensitive the area being treated, the more painful the treatment will be.

It’s Quick

Laser hair removal is a quick and efficient process. Sessions typically last 10 to 30 minutes and can easily be completed during your lunch break. There is minimal downtime and although the skin may be tender after treatment, it will not hinder you from going about your daily activities.

It Takes More than One Session

Because body hair grows in different cycles, multiple sessions need to be completed for total hair removal. Results are not immediate, and it can take up to three months for a noticeable reduction in hair growth. Most people need five to 10 laser hair removal sessions spaced 10 weeks apart for optimal results.

It’s a Big Decision

Laser hair removal is permanent hair removal using powerful lasers on your skin. Because of that, you need to make sure you are working with a laser clinic that is well-qualified.
