Are you sick of ingrown hairs, razor burns, and cuts from shaving? If so, it’s time to give laser hair removal a try. This hair removal method provides countless benefits over shaving, from less irritation to longer-lasting results.
Let’s learn more about laser hair removal as an alternative to shaving.
The Downsides of Shaving
When you shave, the razor only cuts off the hair from where it emerges through the skin. This leaves the hair root intact. So, it will grow back faster than if the root was removed. Additionally, shaving flattens the end of each hair strand, creating an optical illusion that makes hair look thicker when it grows back.
Shaving also poses a risk of ingrown hairs. This happens when shaved hair starts to grow back, but instead of growing straight up, it curves and goes back into the skin. This creates a swollen bump that can be painful and itchy.
How is Laser Hair Removal Different?
Laser hair removal uses laser energy to get rid of unwanted hair at the root. The pigment in the hairs absorbs the light from the laser, which turns into heat and damages the hair follicles. This prevents future hair growth and leads to longer-lasting results than other hair removal methods, including shaving.
Patients typically undergo six to eight laser hair removal treatment sessions. This treatment series ensures that each hair is treated in the anagen growth phase. After the series has been completed, the results are permanent – you’ll no longer have to buy razors or spend time shaving again!
Laser hair removal is safe, effective, and works for virtually any area of the body, including the arms, legs, face, and Brazilian area. Reach out to Florida Face and Body today to schedule your consultation!
