The Top 5 Reasons to Get Laser Hair Removal

When it comes to hair removal, there may be many methods to choose from, but only really one that comes with other benefits.

Whether you opt to wax, shave, tweeze or use creams – Hair removal can take up a lot of your time. And not only that – Most methods of hair removal are painful too!

Perhaps the worst thing about traditional methods of hair removal is that the effects are only temporary and soon enough, you have to do it all again.

But it doesn’t need to be that way. Here are our top 5 reasons to ditch other methods of hair removal and go for laser hair removal instead.

Save Yourself Time with Laser Hair Removal

Imagine the time you spend on shaving. Or the time spent travelling to and from wax appointments. If you add that all up over a life-time it’s quite outrageous the amount of time you can spend on hair removal!

By investing in laser hair removal, you can regain some of this lost time by permanently reducing hair growth after each and every session.

A standard laser hair removal session lasts about the same time as a wax appointment, but instead of just removing the hair, you’re actively reducing it, eventually saving time on hair removal because you will have less hair to remove!

Laser Hair Removal Ends Up More Cost-Effective

We’ve talked about how much time we’re spending, by what about the money we spend on hair removal? It doesn’t come for free. If you shave then you’re likely needing to do this regularly to keep up with hair re-growth – That’s a lot of new razors over a lifetime. Plus all the products that go along with it! The same with waxing – It’s an ongoing commitment coming out of your budget.

Whilst laser hair removal may seem like a lot of money to spend on removing unwanted hair, it can actually be much more cost-effective than other hair removal methods.

With shaving and waxing, you’re spending an amount of money that is ongoing for however long you want to keep removing unwanted hair. You spend the money, remove the hair, and then do it all over again.

The difference with laser hair removal is that you’re not just removing the unwanted hair, you will actually be reducing the amount of hair that grows back as well. So while it may seem laser hair removal is a lot to pay upfront, it will likely work out cheaper in the long run when compared to the ongoing costs of shaving or waxing.

No Awkward Regrowth with Laser Hair Removal

Is there anything more annoying than that stubbly feeling when you’ve only just shaved? Or noticing hair starting to grow back before your next wax appointment? With laser hair removal this regrowth is significantly reduced, and only gets less over time!

With waxing, you need to wait until hair is a certain length before being able to remove it again – Which can be really frustrating! Visibility yes, but also that itchiness and uncomfortable feeling. There is no such thing as that awkward time between appointments with laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal targets the hair follicle rather than the hair, so there’s no need to grow the hair out. We even recommend that you shave before your appointment so there’s no need to walk around with unwanted hair whilst you’re waiting for your next session!

Laser Hair Removal is Less Painful Than Waxing

If you’re a pro at managing the pain of waxing, then laser hair removal will probably be like a walk in the park for you. The majority of people find it acceptable.

The sensation has been likened to a warm elastic band pinging against the skin. Totally worth a bit of discomfort in sensitive areas for smooth, hair-free skin!

If you’re worried about your pain threshold and laser hair removal then just give us a call and chat to one of our friendly team and we can hopefully put your mind at ease.

It’s Getting Safer for All Skin Tones to Have Laser Hair Removal

Earlier technology meant that some laser hair removal machines were not suitable for people with darker skin tones – Perhaps even feared. This was because the machine didn’t have the technology to differentiate between darker skin and hair tones, sometimes resulting in discolouration of the skin. Laser tends to work best when there is more contrast between skin tone and hair colour.

However, as with all technology, things only get better over time. Laser hair removal machines have come a long way in recent years, and many of the latest laser hair removal systems are both effective and safe to use on all skin tones.

If you’re thinking about switching your hair removal routine from shaving or waxing to laser hair removal then give us a call today to chat through the options.
