While stuck in the coldest months of winter, it can be easy to forget that warmer weather is just around the corner. And with warmer weather comes shorts, t-shirts, and lighter clothing. Many people will be spending their annual hundreds of dollars on temporary hair removal methods like waxing, and hours of their precious time. But what these people don’t know is that laser hair removal can save you so much money and time by providing permanent hair removal!
Laser hair removal is a quick and easy process that uses lasers to generate highly concentrated light beams. Lasers emit light that is absorbed efficiently and quickly by the colour pigments located within individual hair follicles. During the laser treatment, the light pulsates and is absorbed into the shaft of the hair. Very strong heat is generated inside the follicle and changes the surface of the hair permanently, which quickly prevents new growth. A key part of the hair removal procedure is cooling the skin to normal temperatures following the laser treatment. This allows for quick, safe, and effective procedures for all ages, body parts, and skin types. Many follicles are treated with just one pulse. Despite this somewhat technical procedure, the time and money it saves is unmatched by any other hair removal alternative. Following the procedure, there is no need to purchase expensive razors, shaving cream, wax strips, or salon appointments, as the treatment provides long-lasting results.
The average person spends over 24 hours a year shaving and grooming, while laser hair removal treatments take a fraction of the time, and provide a better financial solution. It’s time to stop using specialty creams, lotions, roll-ons and foams that contain chemicals that break down the hair the surface level. This method of hair removal can bother the skin or be the source of unpleasant allergic reactions, and can be very messy and sometimes generate an unpleasant odour. It can also be difficult to treat large areas like the arms and legs. Other hair removal alternatives prove to be clearly inferior to laser hair removal treatments. Waxing with hot or cold wax can quickly and effectively remove hair follicles at the surface level, however this method can cause an unnecessary amount of pain, and hair follicles must fully grow out above skin surface level in order to be re-waxed properly. Ingrown hairs are a common occurrence, and can be unsightly and unpleasant. Professional wax treatments are additionally very expensive, and often very time-consuming. Epilators work in a similar fashion to electric shavers, but pull the hair follicle out from the root underneath the skins surface. This method is extremely painful and can take hours to complete, depending on the texture and amount of the hair.
