From our underarms to our faces to our legs, we all have hair on our bodies that we wish we didn’t have. This becomes even more frustrating come summertime when we spend tons of time lounging in pools or sunbathing on beaches.
But did you know there’s a better way to get rid of unwanted hair besides traditional shaving, waxing, and plucking?
Thanks to laser hair removal, you can finally ditch your razor and tweezers this summer and beyond! Read on to learn more about it.
Laser Hair Removal: How It Works
Laser hair removal is a simple process that uses light energy to damage or destroy hair follicles. Compared to other alternatives, it’s a safe and effective way of getting rid of unwanted body hair.
For instance, Etanda Skin Solution offers SharpLight’s advanced technologies based on pulsed light which enables precise and personalized treatments for hair reduction.
The pulses of light emitted by the laser attack the hair follicle. This destroys the hair from the root and eventually, prevents it from growing back.
For the laser to work effectively, the hair must be in the growth phase and multiple treatments are required. Additionally, since the laser must capture each hair in every growth phase, the sessions will have to be spaced out for about four weeks apart.
How Can Laser Hair Removal Help You?
There are many reasons why laser hair removal takes the cake when it comes to getting rid of unwanted hair. Here are some of the reasons why:
Think of all the minutes out of the day you’ll save when you’re not going in for waxes, shopping for hair removal products, or shaving in the shower. Investing a small amount of time in your laser hair removal treatments now will save you a boatload of time later.
Speaking of hair removal products, most people spend hundreds of dollars each year on razors, razor refills, shaving cream, and waxing. In terms of the long game, laser hair removal can be way cheaper in the long run. (And unlike all these other methods – it’s permanent!)
Prevents Ingrown Hairs
If you’re prone to ingrown hair due to shaving, waxing, and other hair removal methods, laser hair removal is an excellent option.
Since the treatment destroys the hair at the root, you won’t have to worry about hairs growing back and becoming ingrown.
Shaved hair grows in the blink of an eye. In contrast, laser hair removal can provide a permanent reduction in hair growth that becomes easier to maintain over time.
At most, you’ll need to touch up for a few months or years down the line. But compared to the other options that require constant maintenance, it remains to be one of the best long-term solutions.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Laser hair removal works by permanently reducing hair growth in the treated areas.
This means that it doesn’t permanently remove all hair. Rather, it makes any remaining hair finer and less noticeable. In fact, most patients in Edmonton, AB, expect about 70% hair reduction after completing 6-8 series of treatments.
For best results, it’s recommended to avoid sun exposure after each session. Follow-up visits are also highly encouraged to treat any regrowth and to maintain the results.
