Everyone wants to look good, but no one really wants to spend the time needed to make themselves look good. To be effective, any cosmetic treatment is going to have to be able to strike the balance between making a person look their best and making the best use of a person’s time. This is why laser hair removal is absolutely amazing.
Laser hair removal is one of those procedures that has found the perfect balance between results and time. Why do we say this? Think about how much time you spend every single week shaving your legs, shaving your face, removing hair from your armpits, or taking the hair off other parts of your body that you want to be hair-free. It is likely that when you add it up over the course of months, you are spending hours of time doing the same thing over and over again. But thanks to laser hair removal, this wasted time is gone. You may be able to take your razor and dump it in the trash after you have this procedure performed.
One thing that makes people a little anxious about laser hair removal is thinking that they are going to have to let the hair on the area that they want to treat grow out, and then they can have the procedure done. This is not true. Laser hair removal’s results are not dependent on whether or not you have shaved. It really doesn’t matter. Why? Because the idea is that when the laser is directed on your skin, the energy from the laser is absorbed by the pigment in your hair follicles. This energy then deactivates the hair follicle, making it unable to produce new hair.
The only thing that you have to stay away from before having laser hair removal procedures performed is waxing or plucking. This is because both of these procedures will remove the hair follicle. Without a hair follicle, there is nothing for the laser to treat.
It’s good to have a clear idea about what laser hair removal can do and what it cannot do. It is also important to understand that laser hair removal is not a one-time procedure. A series of treatment sessions is necessary for optimal results.
