Unwanted hair is a constant hassle that millions of people contend with on a daily basis. The time, effort and money you spend on getting rid of hair are already pretty significant. Over time, it can add up into a truly shocking investment.
Body hair can be a pretty sensitive issue, especially when it comes to intimate areas. Tastes do change over time, but we've settled into an era when the general beauty trend has landed on general hairlessness as the preferred look that most people desire. This is why so many women are willing to devote their attention to removing excess hair from their armpits, bikini zones, and legs. The arrival of hair in unwanted areas isn't just an unpleasant surprise for teenagers, either. Hormonal changes can alter your hair growth patterns at many different points in life.
Besides the body areas noted above, a lot of women find themselves growing facial hair that doesn't conform to common beauty standards. This can happen even at a young age and it leaves many who experience it feeling desperately self-conscious about their appearance. This makes hair removal more than simply a beauty treatment or an exercise in vanity. It can be a positive boost to your self-esteem and even an empowering experience.
Menopause causes a lot of changes to your body, few of which are welcome. The growth of new hair and the thickening of existing hair are two of the nastiest surprises laying in wait for you. There's a way to short-circuit the body hair changes that come with middle age: Deal with your hair permanently, right now. This is hardly the only reason to get laser hair removal sooner rather than later. Laser treatments are more effective on darker-colored hair and that means it's smart to have the treatment done before your hairs go gray.
Permanent hair removal can be an incredibly liberating experience. You'll never have to worry about stubble, hairs you missed while shaving, or painful nicks and cuts. You can stop planning your wardrobe around what areas you need to cover up and start concentrating on looking your best.
Of course, laser hair removal is just one of many effective options you have for dealing with unwanted hair, but few of the others are permanent. Shaving and waxing have to be repeated on a regular (possibly even daily) basis. They can also go wrong in a lot of minor, irritating ways, causing cuts or ingrown hairs that feel bad and spoil the look of your skin.
If you're getting tired of this unending cycle of hair removal or you just want to make a permanent improvement to your skin's appearance, it's well worth considering going in for laser hair removal in the near future.
Hair Removal Without Pain
Laser hair removal equipment is designed for efficient, pain-free operation. It cannot cause scrapes, nicks, or bruises like blade-based hair removal techniques, and you don't have any sudden painful shocks like you get with waxing. Premium systems even include additional equipment to keep your skin cool and relaxed while your hair is being removed.
Laser treatment is completely safe, with no risk of adverse side effects. In fact, it can actually improve the overall health and appearance of your skin by improving tone and consistency, moderating unwanted pigmentation, and (of course) eliminating the possibility of ingrown hairs.
Comfort was rarely a real priority with earlier forms of hair removal and many of them became notorious for causing pain even when employed correctly. This is simply not the case with laser hair removal, where patient comfort has been a priority from the start. The latest refinements (like the skin-cooling systems mentioned above) make the entire experience virtually painless.
Near-Permanent Hair Removal
As you're probably well aware, one of the most annoying parts of conventional hair removal methods is the never-ending need for reapplication. Besides taking up more and more of your precious time, this cycle of constant repetition also leaves you with a lot of tricky "in between" times where your skin doesn't look or feel its best but your hair isn't quite long enough for treatment. This is not an issue with laser hair removal!
The primary cycle of hair removal using lasers requires six to eight treatments with six weeks in between them. After this primary treatment cycle, you'll probably want to schedule a brief maintenance checkup twice a year to deal with any stray hairs that show up. Other than that, laser hair removal is effectively permanent.
Economize And Save Time
Unfortunately, a lot of people never consider laser hair removal due to its upfront cost. You need to think about the long-term economic picture! The average consumer will spend more than hundred dollars a year, every year, on the equipment and grooming products (razors, blades, shaving cream, etc.) required to remove hair over and over. Even the most expensive laser hair treatment will pay for itself in the span of just a few years by saving you from this expense. Laser hair removal also frees up the time you once devoted to handling your own hair removal, shopping for products and seeing professionals.
As you can see, laser hair removal has plenty of benefits. You can save time and money and most of all, you can feel more confident about yourself and be more comfortable in your own body right now.
