1. Buy new bathing suit. 2. Stock up on sunscreen. 3. Book laser hair removal appointment. Laser hair removal? Absolutely. Think of all the time and effort you put in to plucking, tweezing, waxing or shaving to rid your body of unwanted hair – especially in summer. Now, consider some of the benefits of laser hair removal and figure out if it belongs on your summer to-do list.
LHR Is Faster Than You Might Think
Laser hair removal is a fairly quick procedure. Though individual experiences vary, you can probably be in and out of an armpit and bikini line treatment in half an hour. Some people experience mild skin sensitivity, but nothing that would stop them from enjoying the rest of their day.
There’s no downtime after a laser hair removal treatment, so you can go right back to whatever you were doing.
Laser Hair Removal Actually Cheaper Than Other Methods
While it can take multiple treatments to achieve your desired results, laser hair removal will cost you less in the long run. Endlessly purchasing regular waxing sessions or razors becomes a running expense that adds up over time. Once you have achieved your desired results with laser hair removal, you may only need to return for annual maintenance – if you need to return at all.
Laser Treatments Can Eliminate and Prevent Ingrown Hairs
One of the lesser known benefits of laser hair removal is that it’s a fantastic alternative for people with sensitive skin. If you tend to get bumps and irritation after shaving or waxing, laser hair removal could be the perfect fit for you.
A final word: don’t let just anyone perform laser treatments of any kind on your body. Remember to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for your med spa procedures.
