Like the name suggests, this non-invasive procedure uses lasers to remove unwanted hair. It also discourages hair re-growth in the treated areas. When you’re tired of shaving and those abrasive topical creams, this option is ideal.
Here are the major benefits of laser hair removal:
Let’s face it: shaving or using depilatory treatments eats up time you could be spending doing other things. Then there’s the mess. That’s even more time you have to spend cleaning up!
And that’s saying nothing about the pain associated with both. Razor cuts hurt, and can leave lasting scars. Topical treatments often burn, and can cause rashes and other skin irritations.
By contrast, laser skin removal is quick, easy, and virtually painless. In fact, most patients say the “pain” is more like being pricked with a pin. Most patients can expect only three or four treatments.
Positive Body Image
Despite what some say, laser hair removal isn’t vain or frivolous. Being comfortable with your own body is important. It affects everything from self-esteem to mood. That’s why you should never feel bad about wanting to look and feel good.
This procedure has helped many people regain the confidence to do things they were afraid or embarrassed to do before. When you’re content in your skin, you radiate a poise and self-assurance that empowers others to reach their goals, as well.
Patients who’ve had this procedure say it’s life-changing. They no longer feel the need to hide or cover themselves up. In fact, many patients choosing this option come back for another procedure to help achieve their body image goals.
Peace of Mind
In addition, laser hair removal is one of the most commonly-performed cosmetic procedures in the country. It’s also the safest method to permanently eliminate unwanted hair, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Contrary to popular belief, you won’t be exposed to radiation in this procedure. While minor skin irritation does sometimes occur, most patients are able to address any pain or redness with over-the-counter medication such as Advil.
It’s important to ask your doctor any questions or concerns you have prior to undergoing this procedure. At that time, your doctor will also assess your skin, and discuss procedure details and post-procedure skin care.
