Top 5 Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal
With summer just around the corner, it’s that time of year where we’re reaching for our razors, or booking in our waxes ready for skirts and bikini weather. Unfortunately, there’s nothing fun about hair removal, it’s just something most of us choose to do. As well as the inconvenience, no one likes dealing with ingrown hairs or razor burn, and let’s face it, the pain of waxing just isn’t worth it! But luckily, there’s an effective, pain-free solution - laser hair removal! See the top benefits of laser hair removal below, and learn why you should ditch your razor for lasers below!
1) Suitable For Almost All Areas Of The Body
Laser Hair Removal can treat hair growth in almost all areas of the body for both men and women! So whether you want that upper lip hair gone, bikini line sorted or back hair reduced, laser hair removal is perfect for you! Whilst some hair removal machines work best on either light skin or dark hair, here at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics we use SopranoXLI and Lyra, making it suitable for all skin types including very dark/tanned skin. Not only this, but laser hair removal can be used on Asian, Caucasian and Afro hair types.
2) Wear What You Want - When You Want!
You should feel amazing in your own skin, and part of this is getting to wear the clothes you want, whenever you feel like it! Especially as the summer months roll around, you shouldn’t have to plan to wear your new dress based on your hair growth. There’s nothing worse than grabbing that pair of shorts you want to wear, then looking down to realise you haven’t shaved your legs, or even worse, you wax isn’t booked in until the end of the week. With laser hair removal, you never have to worry about regrowth again, you’ll know you’re covered, ready to wear what you want when you want!
3) Say Goodbye To Razor Bumps & Ingrown Hairs
Razor bumps/shaving bumps, also called pseudofolliculitis barbae, are small, irritated bumps on the skin that develop after shaving. The hair curls back on itself and grows back into the skin (thus creating the bump). Not only do razor bumps cause inflammation and irritation, but they can also be unsightly, showing themselves in the form of pimples.
Many people don’t know that laser hair removal can actually be used to treat razor bumps and ingrown hairs. This is because the laser burns the hair follicle, and therefore the hair doesn’t get the chance to grow back and curl in on itself. In the first few sessions as hair grows back, it comes through cleanly through the opening in the skin. However, down the line, your hair won’t grow back, therefore, there is no chance of ingrown hairs!
4) It’s Both Safe & Effective!
Currently, there is no research to show that the light energy used in laser hair removal can cause any long term side effects. This is because the dedicated Diode laser hair removal system uses one concentrated wavelength of light, which is specific for damaging the hair follicle, but not damaging the surrounding skin tissue. Because it’s such a highly targetted and controlled treatment, the average patient in clinical studies sees a 48% reduction in hair growth after three treatments and up to an 80% lasting reduction after six to eight treatments.
5) It’s Fast
Laser hair removal is fast and effective in both the short and long term. Our patients are shocked to find out that the laser treatment can be carried out in as little as 15 minutes, meaning that as little time as possible in your day is interrupted. Not only this but once you’ve permanently reduced your hair growth, think how much time you’ll save each week not having to shave your armpits, bikini line or legs! It’s a no brainer.
