Body hair removal is a personal choice; however, it promotes the hygiene of your body. Often dust, bacteria, and other germs stick to the body hair causing skin allergies and rashes. Thus, many professionals suggest timely removal of hair. That being said, many methods are available, for instance, waxing, shaving, sugaring, and laser hair removal. Among all the methods, laser hair removal is the most popular one since it has long-lasting results.
Laser hair removal has several other benefits, but first, let’s take a look at what laser hair removal is.
What Is Laser Hair Removal and Reduction?
Laser hair removal is a treatment that concentrates light on the hair follicle cells and thereby damages them. The damage caused by laser prevents hair growth and results in smoother, hair-free skin. Laser hair removal does not affect the top layer of the skin or the cells around hair follicles.
On the contrary, laser hair reduction targets the chromophore and causes subsequent microscopic damage to the tissue, thereby reducing hair growth.
While many people confuse laser hair reduction with laser hair removal, both, in fact, are different treatments. However, both the treatments pose similar advantages, as mentioned below.
Advantages of Laser Hair Removal?
The short and direct answer is – yes! Laser hair removal has several benefits, and it is more precise, quick, and less painful. Similarly, there are several other advantages of opting for laser hair removal; below, we have mentioned six benefits.
1. Less painful than other hair removal methods
If put simply, laser hair removal is the least painful treatment of all the methods, especially against waxing. Even though laser hair removal causes slight discomfort and a stingy feeling compared to others, the pain intensity is pretty low. Additionally, unlike shaving or sugaring, there are no side effects – razor cuts, burns, irritated skin, etc. Laser hair removal treatment is also said to be a no-mess procedure, and the best part is it can be performed on any part of the body – face, arms, armpits, legs, and even bikini area.
2. Prevents the growth of ingrown hair
When you opt for waxing, shaving, or any other hair removal procedure, they cause cuts, burns, and pain and lead to the growth of ingrown hairs. Contrary to it, laser hair removal treatments leave no room for ingrown hairs. Since the procedure involves damaging hair follicles, the possibility of ingrown hair is negligible. On another brighter note, no ingrown hair means no strawberry skin – resulting in smooth and flawless skin.
3. Minimal to No side effects
As aforementioned, laser hair removal has minimal to no side effects. Usually, the side effects are redness, mild discomfort, or slight swelling of the treated area. These side effects are neither mandatory nor long-lasting; the symptoms will disappear within days. These minor side effects cause no harm in the long run, and neither do they make your skin bumpy – unlike razors and waxing.
4. Makes skin softer than before
Since laser hair removal diminishes the rate of ingrown hair growth, it is observed that the treatment leaves the skin softer than before. Even though waxing has the same smooth effect on the skin, it is a painful procedure and requires regular sessions. Laser hair removal leaves no stray or stubble hair behind, additionally, there are no cuts or bumps. Hence, it leaves smoother skin, and over time, when hair grows back, the body hair is softer, smoother, and lighter in colour.
5. Long-Term Solution and Quick!
Laser hair removal treatments leave behind smoother skin – one of the major reasons for this is the damage caused to hair follicles. Further, this also reduces the growth of hair. Since the hair follicle is damaged, it takes up much more time to grow back the cells and then hair. Therefore, laser hair treatments are long-term solutions. Moreover, the procedure is quick and time-efficient as well.
6. Cost-effective method
Laser treatment is a long-term solution and thus saves you the trouble of visiting salons every month. Moreover, it saves you the cost of weekly razors, that too of different kinds (face razors, body razors, etc.). Thus, it can be concluded that even though one laser hair removal treatment is costlier than waxing or shaving, it saves you money in the long run. If you opt for laser hair removal, your cost of purchasing razors or going to salons will be nullified. If you analyse the cost of these monthly expenses and the one-time cost of the laser, you’ll observe that laser treatment is cost-effective.
