Why Laser Hair Removal Is Superior to Other Methods

Have you been thinking about laser hair removal, but are hesitant to commit to treatment? If so, Dr. Ronald Schuster would like to share some information that may persuade you to take action. Here, he talks about three reasons laser hair removal is superior to other methods that you may be using.

It Is Less Tedious

One of the best ways to describe traditional hair removal methods is tedious. You must balance precariously in the shower as you shave your legs, carefully tweeze facial hair, remove unwanted hair from bikini zone, and regularly perform at-home waxing treatments or schedule appointments at the salon. For men, the time and energy needed to remove body hair is nearly impossible. These are time-consuming tasks.

At first, laser hair removal does require a time commitment. Depending on the treatment area, you might need between one and five treatment sessions for full results. This is because the laser only treats hair follicles in the active growth stage. Hairs grow in a cycle with different phases. When they are in their resting phase no treatment is successful. It can take between six weeks and three months for hair to pass through its growth cycle. Treatment will last about five minutes for small areas up to an hour for larger areas. After achieving full results, you can spend your time doing more enjoyable and productive things!

For example, in the time you would have spent shaving, you can take a relaxing bath or perform a spa treatment. You can schedule a professional pedicure instead of a Brazilian wax. You can experiment with fun new makeup techniques instead of meticulously plucking between your eyebrows. Your time and energy are put toward better uses!

It Is Less Painful

Any woman that has ever scheduled a bikini wax understands the discomfort of certain hair removal treatments. It is extremely painful to have hair ripped out of sensitive areas of the body. Shaving isn’t necessarily uncomfortable, but tweezing can be a delicate process, and depilatory creams can start to burn or itch as they dissolve the hair.

Many men want to get rid of their body hair. Traditional methods to remove of large areas of hair can be very painful and need to be repeated regularly. Laser hair removal is nearly painless and nearly permanent after all of the treatment sessions are complete.

While it’s not as comfortable as, say, a full body massage, laser hair removal is not painful. Many patients tell us that the laser feels like a quick snap or pinch as it deploys to target the hair follicles. And, after you’ve completed treatment, you don’t have to worry about regular appointments to maintain the results (like you would a bikini wax).

It Is a Better Investment

Think of all the money you currently spend on hair removal tools: shaving cream, waxing appointments, Nair cream. Disposable razors aren’t cheap!

Sure, laser hair removal involves an upfront investment. However, it’s a one-time cost for long-lasting results. Consider the money you will save on replacing razors, tweezers and waxing kits over time. When you add up the regular costs of hair removal, laser hair removal makes financial sense.
