What are the pros and cons of laser hair removal

Do you groan at the thought of another painful waxing session at your local salon?

So, you may be interested in learning more about laser hair removal. However, laser hair removal, like all other cosmetic surgery procedures does have its pros and cons.

A list for Laser Hair Removal Pros and Cons

One of the most popular pros for opting to laser unwanted hair is that the process is quick with little to no side effects. When it comes to pain, most people report that they experience only a small amount of pain and discomfort and feel a mild sunburn sensation, but it is no more painful than undergoing a waxing procedure. Typically, your laser technician will apply a cooling Aloe Vera Gel or ice packs to minimize post procedure effects to return your skin to its pre-treatment condition.

At first glance, the cost of laser hair removal may seem high, however when you consider the long-term costs of over-the-counter depilatory creams, shavers, shaving creams, home waxing kits and salon waxing prices then the initial up-front costs of laser can actually be more cost effective.

The Cons

It is important to know that there are risks associated with laser/pulsed light hair removal treatments including but not limited to; skin irritation, itching, swelling, redness, blistering, scarring and burns. Results will also vary from individual to individual and multiple treatments are necessary to achieve desired results.

One of the common misconceptions with laser for hair removal is that permanent hair removal cannot be guaranteed and most laser clinics will only guarantee to permanently reduce unwanted hair. Typically, over the course of 6 – 10 treatments you can expect hair to become thinner, lighter in color and be sparser. Then after an initial course of treatments, further treatments ranging from one to several times a year are required to maintain the level of satisfaction of hair reduction.

Also, in order to perform the treatment the area needs to be shaved so that the laser light energy is concentrated to treat the hair under the surface of the skin. This causes many clients concern particularly when treating hormonal hair on the face as they believe shaving will worsen their hair problem.

Now we have a list for laser hair removal pros and cons, let me tell you how you can invest in your own laser device and benefit from performing the procedure in the privacy of your own home.
