When it comes to hair removal, there are a ton of options available. Waxing, shaving, using depilatory creams, threading and plucking are all viable, but each of these methods are only temporary and come with a long list of potential drawbacks. If you’re looking for a more permanent solution to unwanted body hair, laser hair removal offers up plenty of benefits you may not have previously considered.
A Finite Cost
With all other temporary methods of hair removal, you will be paying for the rest of your life, potentially. Whether you’re paying a hundred dollars for a spa wax or four dollars for cheap disposable razors, the cost of hair removal just keeps piling up over the years. Laser hair removal offers a finite cost with no surprises.
Lowered Chance of Infection
Nearly every form of hair removal leaves your skin vulnerable to infection. The difference, however, is how often you are placing yourself at risk. With laser hair removal, a series of treatments are needed to achieve a completely smooth result. After that, you may never need to remove hair from the area again. With other methods, you’re placing yourself at risk with every hair removal. This increases your chance of infection significantly over time. Laser is the least risky option over time when compared to all other hair removal methods.
Lowered Chance of Scarring
Hot wax and depilatory creams can create awful burn scars, while ingrown hairs from shaving, threading or plucking can leave you with skin tunnels or pock marks. When considered over time, the chance of scarring from laser treatments is minuscule compared to all other hair removal options.
Less Time Commitment
Setting aside hours out of your busy schedule for hair removal can leave you feeling as if your time could be better spent with your family or indulging in your favorite hobby. For people who grow a lot of hair quickly, the time commitment only grows larger. In contrast, laser hair removal is done in a series of appointments that you set to work with your schedule. Once the hair is removed, you won’t have to spend hours in the bathroom or the spa each week for hair removal.
