Laser hair removal is one of our most popular services here at Akin Aesthetics & Wellness in Riverton, Utah.
We all have hair on our bodies that we wish we didn’t have. From our legs to our faces to our underarms, we spend hours of our lives shaving, waxing, and removing that unwanted hair.
Laser Hair Removal is one of the most effective ways to remove unwanted body hair. If you’re tired of shaving and waxing but aren’t quite sure if you’re ready for laser treatment, keep reading.
Here are seven proven benefits of laser hair removal:
1. It’s Quick
If it’s a quick solution you’re searching for, laser hair removal is the fastest way to get rid of unwanted hair.
Our packages here at Akin Aesthetics & Wellness in Riverton, Utah include 10 treatment sessions. Appointments usually range from 5 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area and how many areas you are treating.
2. It’s Less Painful Than Other Hair Removal Methods
Laser hair removal is a lot less painful than most people think. Many people equate it to the feeling of snapping a rubber band against the skin.
Depending on your threshold for pain, you may find it slightly uncomfortable, but the sessions are so fast that most people find it easy to endure. We use a cooling gel and the applicator of the laser is chilled to ensure maximum comfort.
3. It’s Precise
Laser technology is incredibly precise, making laser hair removal ideal for people looking to target and remove a few specific hairs.
This makes it a great option, even if you’re looking to remove small areas of hair from around the upper lip, bikini line, or hairline.
4. It Can Remove Hair From Any Part of the Body
With the exception of the eyelashes, laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the body.
It’s especially ideal for the back and bikini area, which can be hard to reach with razors.
5. It Prevents Ingrown Hairs
Shaving, waxing, and other methods of hair removal can cause ingrown hairs. If you’re prone to ingrown hairs, laser hair removal is an excellent option.
By destroying the hair at the root, you’ll never have to worry about those hairs growing back in or curling back into the body and becoming ingrown.
6. It Saves You From Having to Endure Regrowth
Some methods, such as waxing and plucking, require that you endure a bit of regrowth in between sessions. With laser hair removal, you can enjoy smooth, hair-free skin at all times.
7. It’s a Long-Term Solution
Most people see semi-permanent, lasting results with laser hair removal. In some cases, you may need a touch-up a few months or years down the line, but it remains one of the best long-term solutions available.
At minimum, you will see a permanent reduction in hair growth that becomes easier to maintain over time.
Because it’s a long-term solution, it’s also cost effective. Over the course of your lifetime, you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars, as there won’t be a need for monthly waxes or razor blade refills.
Keep in mind that while laser hair removal works on all different skin tones, it is most effective on people with light skin and dark hair. People with darker skin tones may experience temporary hyperpigmentation of the skin in the treated area.
