We are all familiar with the usual hair removal techniques such as shaving, waxing and tweezing and while they may work as a quick fix, unfortunately the effects don’t tend to last long. Laser hair removal is increasing in popularity as it is a longer term solution to traditional methods of hair removal. In this article I will discuss the five top reasons why you should consider laser hair removal.
First of all you may be wondering what laser hair removal actually is? And what does the treatment entail? Laser hair removal involves using a laser pulse which is absorbed by melanin in the hair, this will then destroy the hair follicle itself. The treatment is perfectly safe and does not damage the surrounding tissue or skin. The treatment can take around 15 minutes, depending on the area of the body being treated.
Here are five reasons to consider booking a laser hair removal session…
1. You’ll save money in the long run
A common myth is that laser hair removal is very expensive, which isn’t the case. Most laser treatments are reasonably priced and when you add up how much you would have spent on razors or waxing appointments over the years, you will be making a big saving. The New York Laser Clinic in London are currently offering 60% off laser hair removal packages and you can even book in a free consultation. So there’s never been a better time to give laser hair removal a try.

2. It’s a long lasting solution
Although laser hair removal isn’t permanent, it drastically slows down hair regrowth. Hair reduction will start from your first session but will be noticeable after just a few treatments. Because the treatment effects the hair follicle itself it is much slower to grow back, unlike shaving for example which only removes the hair that grows above the skin. This means that you will only need to book a session every 4 to 6 weeks. Laser hair removal is particularly beneficial to people with polycystic ovary syndrome, which can cause excessive hair growth.
3. You will save time in your daily routine
I don’t know about you but I spend around 10 minutes shaving my legs in the shower, two or three times a week. In summer when I’m wearing dresses and shorts I like to shave my legs every day. We are all different but I find my regrowth is quite fast so hair removal is a real chore in the summer months. Laser hair removal would completely remove the need to do this. It would be such a luxury to not have to worry about it every morning. I know I would rather spend those extra 10 minutes in bed rather than shaving my legs!
4. Reduce ingrown hairs
Ingrown hairs are a problem for many of us, especially those of us who chose to shave. An ingrown hair is where the hair grows back into the skin, which causes pain, inflammation and those unsightly red bumps. I know that for me personally this is something that I often suffer with after shaving, so it’s good to know that laser hair removal can reduce or even eliminate those pesky ingrown hairs.
5. It’s really not painful!
Another myth that you often hear about laser hair removal is that it’s painful. While that may have been true in the past, technology has come along a lot in recent years and it’s now virtually painless. Of course we are all different and all have different pain thresholds so this can vary from person to person. But at most all you should feel is a little discomfort on particularly sensitive areas of the body. So if pain has been putting you off getting laser hair removal, you really don’t need to worry.
