Proven Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal may not be on your radar, but perhaps it should be. Are you tired of constantly shaving and waxing? Can’t figure out how to avoid razor bumps and stubble? If you said yes to these questions, keep reading to learn all the benefits of laser hair removal.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

During a laser hair removal treatment, a laser is used to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair, by concentrating a light beam at hair that is in active growth mode. As a result, your skin absorbs the light, damaging the hair follicles to prevent future growth. The heat from the laser destroys the hair follicle without damaging the skin itself. 

At Skin Spa New York, we use Candela (MA), Cutera and Inmode laser technologies to provide a personalized hair removal treatment customized for your skin and hair type.

The benefits of laser hair removal

There is a wide range of benefits of laser hair removal. From minimal downtime to high affordability to minimal pain and discomfort, this treatment is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to remove unwanted hair permanently. 

It’s significantly less painful than other hair removal options

Waxing can be painful, and shaving can cause razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and acne-like breakouts. In comparison, laser hair removal is significantly less painful. Although temporary discomfort and redness can occur after treatment, these signs typically disappear within several hours.

It’s affordable

When you consider the costs of shaving or waxing throughout your lifetime, laser hair removal is much more affordable in the long term.  These treatments provide a permanent reduction of about 70% to 90% of unwanted hair in just six treatments.

Although it may not remove 100% of the hair and requires multiple treatments, you avoid the cycle of expensive and temporary solutions like shaving and waxing. Laser hair removal ultimately saves you time and money in the long run.

All areas can be safely treated

Nearly all areas of your body can be safely and effectively treated with laser hair removal. This procedure can be safely performed from chin and lip hair to the legs and underarms–on most body parts. This treatment is particularly effective for the bikini area and back because these areas are often hard to reach with razors and can be painful to wax.

It’s a quick treatment with minimal downtime

If you’re looking for the fastest option for removing hair, laser hair removal is your best choice. Treatment time will depend on the body area being treated and the amount of hair growth, but it is generally a quick treatment. Smaller areas typically take only a few minutes.

Not only is it a quick treatment, but you will likely experience little to no downtime. After your laser hair removal treatment, you can go straight back to your routine.
