Bid goodbye to unwanted body hair: Perks of Laser Hair Reduction
It has become essential to groom body hair. Unwanted hair on the body negatively impacts self-esteem and also appears unappealing as it hampers the smooth texture of the skin. When one’s self-confidence and self-esteem are destroyed, social relationships are affected as well.
Although there are several methods of hair reduction, such as waxing and shaving, these are time-consuming and temporary methods, with the added disadvantage of fast regrowth. They are also not advisable for people with sensitive skin, as they can cause pain,itching, rash and ingrown hair. However, permanent and skin-friendly reduction of body hair has now become easier and possible with the advancement of cosmetology. Stay glued to find out all about a method that would make your life easier by making hair reduction more convenient. So no more last minute visits to a salon for waxing!
What Is Laser Hair Reduction?
Laser hair reduction is a process that focuses a beam of light, targeting a particular area, thus destroying hair follicles, and leaving you hair-free for a longer period of time. The laser causes the hair shaft and the hair follicle to heat up, thereby interrupting the hair growth cycle, and putting an end to regrowth. The light is specifically absorbed by the pigment in the hair and doesn’t make contact with the surrounding skin or other types of tissue in the treatment area. This selective damage to the hair follicle is the reason behind removal of hair permanently without affecting the skin.
What Are The Benefits?
Laser hair reduction is virtually painless compared to waxing, shaving and threading.
This technology is incredibly precise, and therefore the ideal solution for people wanting to target and remove hair from specific areas.
If you are prone to ingrown hairs, this is the best method for you as it destroys hair at the root.
It is a long-term solution that may demand a touch-up every few years. Most people see permanent, lasting results with laser hair reduction.
It is a quick method. Although there will be multiple sessions, these will only take a few minutes.
It is cost effective. Laser can permanently reduce your hair thereby limiting your salon visits to maybe once in a year. This is way more economical compared to monthly salon visits that require investment both in terms of time and money.
To ensure that you get all these benefits, book an appointment with Dr. Geetika Srivastava at Influennz for the best laser hair reduction.
Why Is It The Best Option?
By comparing it to other methods, let’s find out why laser hair reduction is the best method.
Shaving: Shaving, undoubtedly, is the most convenient and simple method to groom body hair. However, shaving fails when we talk about permanent removal and long-lasting results. A razor removes hair only from the surface, and unlike waxing, it does not target the hair shaft or the hair follicle. Thus, shaving cannot put an end to regrowth. If you wish to maintain the smooth texture of your skin through shaving, you would have to shave every alternate day. On the other hand, laser hair reduction is a one-time investment and may require a few touch-ups. Shaving has side effects, such as ingrown hairs, cuts, and burns, but laser hair reduction has no such side effects.
Waxing: Although waxing leaves the skin smooth for around a month, it is ultimately a temporary solution. You may need a waxing session once a month, but laser hair reduction requires fewer sessions than waxing. Laser hair reduction is a better alternative because it reduces the speed of hair regrowth, therefore lasting longer. Waxing involves pain, but laser hair reduction is a pain-free method. Redness and rashes are common side effects of waxing, but this method has no side effects.
Depilatory Creams: These creams use chemicals with a high pH. These are also harmful to the skin and may lead to skin irritation, chemical burns, and may have an allergic reaction. Unlike laser hair reduction, this is a temporary solution as it does not destroy hair at the root.
Electrolysis: Being a permanent hair removal method, electrolysis often comes in close competition with laser hair reduction. However, it has several cons. It is an extremely lengthy process and requires a lot of accuracies. Unlike laser hair reduction, electrolysis is neither comfortable nor painless as it requires the use of needles, which give a stinging feeling. While lasers have no side effects, electrolysis may lead to scarring, redness, skin discoloration, and permanent skin damage.
