Laser Hair Removal’s Benefits, Risks, and Side Effects
Would you just purchase a plane ticket and accommodations and call it good for your vacation? Of course not. You do your research. You find a city you’ve always wanted to visit. The best prices for flights. A positively reviewed hotel.
The good. The bad. You need to know as much as possible to make the best decision.
And while the above example makes us want to book a weekend getaway on a beach, it also reminds us of one of the more popular choices in the aesthetic world: laser hair removal.
Why is it so popular? What are the benefits? Are there any drawbacks? Will it have a lasting impact?
These are the questions asked and answered in a Forbes article that focuses on the benefits, risks, and side effects of laser hair removal.
First, some information on how laser hair removal works. The laser targets and destroys the follicle and disrupts its growth cycle so hair can never grow again. Following multiple treatments, clients are left with smooth, hairless skin with no need for a razor or wax moving forward.
No waxing and shaving are big-time benefits, but Forbes illustrates many more. Those benefits include:
*It’s a long-term solution: Seriously, once your hair-free journey concludes, smooth skin in that area is the new normal. No cuts. No ingrown hairs. No worries.
*Far less upkeep: No need to buy razors or shaving cream. And no need to book a wax appointment next month. You’re covered.
*Helps with other skin conditions: Ingrown hairs. Side effects of PCOS. Even psoriasis. The benefits go beyond cosmetic. Laser hair removal can drastically improve your skin.
*Saves money over time: It’s true. While the cost of the service is obviously more than purchasing a new razor, over time, it can actually be cheaper than shaving. Think about it. How many times have you had to run to the store for a new razor and cream? It sure adds up.
*Multiple treatments yield lasting results: One appointment can make a big difference, but it won’t make you completely hair-free. Multiple sessions spanned six to eight weeks apart is the norm for most clients. And once they’re done, they’ll never shave or wax again.
Forbes also dives into possible side effects clients might encounter. The most common include mild swelling and redness, and in rare cases, blistering. And while laser hair removal isn’t described as a painful experience, many liken the sensation to the snap of a rubber band.
