With many options on the market for removing unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is one that removes hair and keeps it off in any place a person would normally wax or shave. The process involves using the heat from a laser to remove hair follicles and stop regrowth of unwanted body hair, dealing with the root cause of hair regrowth. Pristine Medical Spa in Ridgecrest, CA uses this process to help you be your most confident self, and our staff is ready to help you decide if the process is right for you.
Top 5 Reasons to Use Laser Hair Removal
1. Long-Lasting Results
Unlike other options, like shaving or waxing, where the hair grows back eventually, laser hair removal results are long-lasting as the heat from the laser targets the hair follicles themselves, which discourages hair regrowth. A few follow up sessions may be needed as determined by the therapist, but upkeep is relatively easy and aims to keep the hair gone for good.
2. Virtually Painless
The process itself is less painful than threading, waxing, or plucking unwanted hair. There may be a warm sensation where the hair and hair follicles are targeted, but lasers have a cooling function that aims cool air on the warm areas of the skin. Skin is left smooth and clear rather than red or irritated as it is with other treatments, like waxing and threading. Other options for getting rid of hair, such as threading, plucking, and waxing can be painful and lead to ingrown hairs.
3. It Can Be Used Anywhere on the Body
You can use this method anywhere on your body that you would wax, shave, or thread. Areas that may be targeted by laser hair removal can include the underarms, the bikini line, the upper lip, and even the eyebrows.
4. Fast Process
The process of removing hair with the laser is relatively quick and easy. Depending on which part of the body you’re targeting, sessions can take around 20-30 minutes. You can pop in during a lunch break or after work for treatment, especially if you’re doing a smaller area. The treatment is very precise and can target hair that can hard to reach with other methods such as waxing and shaving.
5. Minimal Downtime
After the session, you’ll be ready to resume normal activities right away! You should, however, aim to avoid sweating and strenuous activities for at least 24 hours, as too much sweat and heat can hurt the skin that was just treated. Unlike waxing and shaving, irritation is hardly noticeable under normal conditions.
