There are several things that make laser hair removal preferable to manual hair removal treatments. If you live in the Orlando area, we invite you to consider some of the following reasons to get laser hair removal at our center.
Laser hair removal will save you a lot of time. At first, you may not feel like this is a time-saving treatment when you think about the fact that you will need to return to our office multiple times. However, look at the numbers realistically. When you calculate traveling to and from our office and actually receiving your treatment, for under about 10 hours, you will be able to enjoy semi-permanent hair reduction.
Now think about the amount of time that you spend shaving, plucking, waxing or applying hair removal creams. This is likely part of your everyday routine. Now you can see that 10 hours of your time is really not all that much when you think about how much time you will save on a daily basis.
Laser hair removal gives better results than manual hair removal treatments. This is especially true if you have sensitive skin or are prone to getting ingrown hairs. You may have a little bit of tenderness or swelling in the area that was treated, but this is normal and will quickly go away in the hours following your treatment. In addition, you won’t have to worry about razor bumps, ingrown hairs, or any type of skin irritation. Your skin will be smooth, soft, and free of ugly hair.
Another reason why you will receive better results with laser hair removal is because you will no longer have to deal with that period of time when you are waiting for your hair to grow out and your skin to heal in order to be able to shave or wax again. A lot of people with sensitive skin go through the cycle of shaving, dealing with skin irritation, allowing that irritation to heal and then repeating the process as they shave again. They only enjoy a very short amount of time when their skin is free of both hair and irritation.
Something that concerns many people when it comes to laser hair removal is having to deal with the growth of unwanted hair between treatment sessions. When a person looks at laser hair removal realistically, they realize that they will spend about six months going through the process, during which they will be visiting our office about once a month.
If you are concerned about dealing with unwanted hair between your treatment sessions, you don’t need to worry. Laser hair removal is not like waxing. You do not have to stop shaving in between sessions. In fact, we actually encourage our clients to shave between their sessions. However, you cannot wax or pluck the hair. The hair follicle needs to stay in place.
