Laser hair removal is definitely on the rise in the United States. Statistics show more people are seeking laser treatments to eliminate unwanted hair over any other method, including waxing. Out of the top five non-surgical procedures performed in 2016, laser hair removal was third on the list, and there were over 1,035,783 treatments recorded. This procedure has become more sensible to both sexes, in light of the fact that it has more lasting benefits than traditional methods. Most women opt to have the hair on the bikini area and underarms removed, while men generally concentrate on their chest, back and neck. There are so many reasons to consider laser hair removal.
First of all, laser hair removal treatments do not take much time per session to perform. Depending on the area of the body that is being treated, sessions may be performed in just minutes. A series of treatment sessions is usually required for optimal results, but since the sessions are typically short and hassle-free, they are considered to be convenient, even for people with busy schedules.
Compared to waxing, laser hair removal doesn’t require a person to wait until their hair has grown out a certain amount. Our professionals may actually ask you to shave before a session so that the laser can better target the hair follicle.
The procedure points highly concentrated rays of light at the hair follicle. The pigment then absorbs that light, which degrades the follicle enough to suspend further growth. With past technology, laser hair removal was limited to people who only had dark hair with lighter skin tones, but current innovative lasers have allowed a wide range of skin tones and hair colors to be successfully treated.
Traditional hair removal methods can be costly, ineffective, tedious and uncomfortable. Rather than going through the same old day-to-day battles with tweezing, shaving and waxing, many people are opting for the convenient, cost-effective solution of laser hair removal.
