People with unwanted facial and body hair spend hours removing it--often on a daily basis. Women fight with the hair on their upper lip. chin, legs, and bikini area. Men often want their back and chest hair removed and sometimes their leg hair as well. Constant shaving, plucking, and waxing can take as much time as a part-time job. Laser hair removal is a convenient and safe way to get rid of hair permanently, saving you endless time and frustration. If you are tired of fighting hairy battles, consider laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal works by focusing a concentrated light on your hair follicles. The light heats up the hair follicles and destroys their ability to grow. To be effective, the laser has to be aimed at the hair in the growing stage, so you will have to have a series of treatments scheduled approximately a month apart. Eventually, most of the treated hair will stop growing. What grows back is usually light and fine.
People who have had laser hair removal note several benefits. First, the area is precisely targeted. The laser can be aimed at the hair above your lip and still leave your lip unharmed. The process is fast, taking only a second to treat areas the size of a quarter. Also, the procedure is nearly painless compared to waxing and other methods. You may experience some redness and slight swelling. Usually, your skin will return to normal after a few days.
The average price per treatment in the US is $329. Prices vary in different areas, of course, and some patients need more treatments than others to get the desired effect. If you are worried about the price, consider visiting a cosmetology program in your area to see if there are any accredited schools that offer hair removal services for less.
Usually, people need about six treatments to accomplish hair removal. Although this initial investment may seem somewhat expensive, the permanent results will actually save you money in the long run. Decades of buying costly razors, depilatories, waxes, and other hair removal aids adds up to thousands of dollars.
Also, the time you save is certainly worth something. Imagine getting ready for work each day without ever worrying if your lip is hairy or your legs are stubbly. You can put away the tweezers and stop staring into a magnifying mirror to make certain you are not overlooking any strays. Having laser treatments gives you the confidence to wear the clothes you want without worrying about being embarrassed. Also, swimsuit season is nearly carefree. Investing in laser treatments will make your body and your life much smoother.
