Laser hair removal has numerous benefits over traditional methods

Posted on 20 Aug, 2010

Laser hair removal offers a great alternative to traditional hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing and plucking. Electrolysis is another traditional hair removal method which treats hair separately. This is a very time-consuming method though.

The inconvenience faced by using traditional hair removal methods has made the laser hair removal procedure a great success. The procedure works by passing a laser light over the skin. When the laser strikes the hair follicles, the intense heat destroys them.

Laser hair removal treatment can be performed on areas including –
• Legs
• Chest
• Back
• Bikini area
• Armpits

Advantages of laser hair removal

Some advantages offered by laser hair removal treatment include –

Ease of use –A well-experienced laser technician directs the laser beams at the area to be treated, thus burning off the unwanted hair. Unlike traditional hair removal procedures, laser hair removal treatment is also largely painless.

Less time – Unlike electrolysis and other traditional hair removal procedures, the laser hair removal procedure does not take too long to complete.

Minimal side effects – While hair removal creams and waxing can cause skin irritation and other side effects, this is not the case with laser hair removal.

Lasting effects – Unlike traditional hair removal treatments such as shaving, waxing and other hair removal creams, laser hair removal treatment offers a more permanent solution.
