Personal grooming extends to more than bathing every day and occasionally applying sunscreen or moisturizer.
These days, maintaining a good skincare routine is as much a question of comfort as it is about health. For example, if you are a cyclist, you might not want to have plenty of body hair. Sweat, when combined with hair and extended ride times, can cause chafing of the skin, and hair on your legs also slows you down. Going hairless also reduces itchiness and irritation, which intensifies in the summer, let alone wanting to look great on the beach in your favourite bikini.
However, hair removal treatments are not created alike. Some need little equipment and can be done at home—shaving, for instance. Some hair removal treatments are more lasting but need to be handled by specialists, like laser hair removal.
If you have not gone for a laser consultation before, read on to learn about the reasons why you should give laser hair removal treatment a try.
1. LASER HAIR REMOVAL IS COST-EFFECTIVE
Professional hair removal ensures a smoother finish and slower regrowth. However, the costs of going to a specialist can add up. Fortunately, laser hair removal only involves six to eight sessions, allowing you to go hairless the rest of the time! No more bi-weekly trips to get your legs waxed, saving you a lot of money in the long-term. For more details, please read our complete hair removal guide with price details.
Because options are covering both large and small areas of the body, your specialist can target treatments as narrowly or as widely as needed.
LightSheer®, as used here at CALVEO for example, features two laser hair removal techniques. The High-Speed, Vacuum Assisted type is for large treatments, and the ChillTip™ Sapphire is for smaller areas. There’s no need to do a procedure fit for a small area over and over to achieve the same effect on a bigger scale.
2. LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS EXACTLY WHERE IT SHOULD
Because it is aided by technology, you can expect identical results for every treatment. Laser hair removal targets follicles, which means it does not damage the parts of the skin where hair does not grow. This is trickier to achieve in shaving, for instance, where everything the blade passes can potentially be irritated or infected.
In waxing, there is a similar problem. You need to apply the wax to an entire region and pull on the strip to remove the hairs. Waxing entails that your entire forearm is worked on, as opposed to just the parts with hair. With the technology of laser hair removal systems, you do not pull or chafe skin without hair.
3. LASER HAIR REMOVAL IS SAFE AND MINIMALLY PAINFUL
In a study, researchers found that while there is some pain associated with laser hair removal treatment, it is minimal and can be reduced by using topical creams. The pain felt when undergoing the procedure feels like tiny pricks, which hurts much less cumulative than the potential razor burns you will get from shaving. It also hurts much less than waxing.
With LightSheer®, each laser application is cooled before and after treatment, numbing the skin and keeping the procedure less painful.
4. YOU WILL BE DONE IN HALF AN HOUR
Laser hair removal sessions last for about thirty minutes, making it the perfect duration to squeeze into a lunch break. A procedure that you can zip in and zip out of, with the initial effects lasting for weeks, is perfect for busy people who don’t have an entire day to spend in a salon.
If you want a quick, painless treatment to get rid of your body hair, schedule a laser hair removal session! Laser hair removal is cost-effective and relatively easy to sit through, and you only need a handful of sessions to be completely hair-free.
