Hello, and welcome back to the Remedi Spa blog! In our recent post, we began looking at some of the advantages of laser hair removal treatments. As most people know, hair removal can be a time-consuming daily and weekly process. What’s more, shaving, waxing, threading, and using depilatory creams can be both costly, and in some cases, painful. On the other hand, laser hair removal is a more permanent solution for reducing unwanted, unsightly facial and body hair, and can actually save you time and money in the long run. Let’s continue exploring more of the benefits of laser hair removal below.
FDA Approved Treatment
The popularity of laser hair removal has skyrocketed in recent years. According to the National Laser Institute, there have been more than 1.1 million procedures since 2000, an increase of about 51 percent. This treatment can significantly reduce hair or eliminate hair growth after treatment among most, which is why the FDA lists it as a “permanent reduction” rather than “permanent removal.” As the FDA notes, “permanent hair reduction is defined as long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing after a treatment regimen, which may include several sessions.”
Improves Appearance and Boost Confidence
When performed by a professional, laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment for reducing hair growth, while improving the skin’s texture. It may also help boost one’s confidence as the result of having smooth, hair-free skin. This laser treatment delivers a precise laser pulse to target dark, coarse, more problematic hairs at the root, while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. The treatment can be performed anywhere on the body, which is great for large areas like the legs, back, and arms.
Don’t Have to Grow Hair Between Treatments
What really sets laser hair removal apart from other hair reduction treatments like waxing is there is no need to grow your hair out between treatments. It is perfectly fine to shave because the laser targets the root of the hair follicle, so there’s no need to have hairy legs or shaggy underarms between treatments as one would with waxing.
Painless Hair Removal
Waxing, plucking, and even shaving (when you accidentally nick a knee or cheek) are all pretty painful methods for hair removal. While the initial laser treatment may be uncomfortable, an average treatment will usually cause a stinging sensation or may feel slightly prickly. Everyone has a different level of pain tolerance, but in most cases, clients usually experience very little discomfort. Our skilled technicians at Remedi have a topical numbing cream available should any client experience pain during a treatment.
