For most of us, there is virtually nothing enjoyable about the process of shaving, waxing, tweezing, or epilating. If you’re one of the many who finds waxing or shaving to be more of a dreaded chore than a form of self-care, you’ve probably wondered about laser hair removal and whether it’s worth the price tag. Although it may seem like a luxury cosmetic treatment — or the prospect of anything involving a laser strikes you as menacing — you’ll be happy to know that the benefits of laser hair removal are plentiful, and that it is actually cost-effective.
However, laser hair removal isn’t just a fancy, costly cosmetic treatment for the few who can indulge. Wondering about the other compelling reasons to get hair removal? Contact us at Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center in Oklahoma City, OK, to schedule an appointment.
1. The treatment is quick, effective, and precise
A common misconception is that laser hair removal is a lengthy process; however, when compared to waxing, tweezing, and epilating, the technological edge of a laser renders it a uniquely quick yet thorough process. Furthermore, although shaving may seem to be a time-saver in comparison, laser hair removal is typically a monthly or even bi-monthly treatment. As if that weren’t enough, the efficacy and precision of which a laser is capable ensure that all sessions will eliminate practically all hair growth. In other words, you won’t leave a treatment finding patches of hair that you missed.
2. The results are long-term
Each area of the body that is treated by a laser will not superficially eliminate the visible hair but will destroy the hair follicles. This means that, over time, the hair will grow much finer. Although the hair will never completely cease to grow, it will become barely noticeable and require fewer and fewer laser treatments in order to maintain relative hairlessness.
3. It’s not as painful as you think
While any treatment involving a laser may sound intimidating, laser hair removal is slightly more painful than shaving and significantly less painful than waxing. Additionally, considering the tender nicks or ingrown hairs that accompany most other hair removal methods, it can be a much less painful option in the long-run.
