The benefits of laser hair removal
Millions of men and women are now choosing to have laser hair removal. And for good reason – this method is unparalleled when it comes to preventing hair growth.
Traditional methods of hair removal are time consuming and tend to offer temporary results. However, unlike shaving or waxing, laser provides a long-term solution for diminishing unwanted hair. What’s more, it can be performed on any part of the body.
Laser hair removal uses pulses of highly concentrated light, which target hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the light and that destroys the hair. Following a course of eight treatments, patients can expect hair to be reduced by 80%.
We explore the top four benefits of this popular method.
Treatments are fast
Laser hair removal is faster than you might expect. Appointments can take as little as five minutes for upper lip and 20 minutes for full legs. Plus, there’s no downtime, which means you can return to your normal routine immediately.
You’ll save money in the long run
Since you will no longer need endless amounts of razors, shaving cream or waxing appointments, you will save money in the long run. London’s Pulse Light Clinic currently has a summer sale, offering single treatments for £170 and a course of eight sessions from £544.
Eliminate ingrown hairs
Laser hair removal is extremely effective on ingrown hairs: after two to four sessions, there is a significant, if not complete, removal of these. Bumps, redness and skin pigmentation clear up too, leaving skin looking smooth and healthy.
You don’t need to grow hair out
Unlike waxing, you don’t have to grow hair out. In fact, your body should be freshly shaved before your laser appointment.
