Laser hair removal has made significant strides in the past decade. As technology has improved, the procedure is now available for nearly all hair types and skin tone combinations, allowing nearly everyone to enjoy smooth, hairless skin. This popular treatment can be performed almost anywhere on the body, including intimate areas. The reasons to consider laser hair removal are not always simple aesthetics, however. There are several additional reasons to undergo this treatment that you may not have previously considered.
Temporary methods of removing hair (i.e., shaving and waxing) can be a huge waste of time. This is especially true for hirsute people who need to remove a lot of body hair repeatedly. Waxing, shaving, plucking and threading away hair again and again takes up time that might be better spent on education, family commitments or hobbies. If you live a fast-paced life and are tired of the time commitments taken up with grooming, laser hair removal may be the right solution for you.
Avoiding Ingrown Hairs, Irritation and Infections
While some people can dry-shave with an old razor and be just fine, some of us have sensitive skin that reacts to any and all forms of temporary hair removal. Irritation, red bumps, rashes, ingrown hairs and even skin infections are not uncommon reactions to temporary hair removal in individuals with sensitive skin. Laser hair removal can get rid of the hair for good, allowing you to finally forget about annoying problems like these.
Overall Cost Savings
When compared to the cost of a lifetime of shaving, waxing, threading or depilatory creams, laser hair removal almost always comes out as the more cost-effective option. Removing an item from your budget for hair removal can add up to a ton of savings, especially if you have many more decades ahead of you. Laser hair removal is, over the cost of a lifetime, very easy on the wallet and offers a budget-friendly, permanent solution to a potentially life-long expense.
If you look carefully at a woman’s shins and knees, it’s likely you will find at least one scar from an errant swipe of the razor. The same can usually be said for the jawline and neck of most men who were taught to shave with a blade. Laser hair removal can help you avoid scarring entirely, which can be very important for those who work in the public eye or pride themselves in having flawless skin. If you have a tendency to form keloid scars, this concern makes laser treatments even more attractive, as keloids can mar skin to the point that they cause discomfort.
Laser hair removal is not solely about aesthetics, as there are several reasons people choose to permanently remove body hair.
