Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works by using a laser light to target the hair follicle. This energy causes the hair follicle to become damaged, and then destroyed. This prevents the follicle from being able to produce further hairs. The hair follicle will absorb the intense beam of light that is delivered by the laser. Despite this, the tissue surrounding the area will remain unaffected.

The term for this procedure is ‘selective photothermolysis’. It is selective because only the hair is targeted and not the skin. It’s also important to make it clear that laser hair removal and electrolysis aren’t the same. The latter involves an electric current being directed onto each individual hair follicle, which is time consuming and painful. It’s virtually pain-free and it can target a large number of hairs in one go.

What Are The Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal?

There are many benefits of laser hair removal, the main advantage is that you will benefit from permanent hair removal. However, there are other points to consider too. This includes the following…

No more ingrown hairs

Do you suffer from ingrown hairs? A lot of people do, and this usually occurs because of shaving or waxing. They happen when the hair grows back into the skin. They can be sore and itchy, appearing like little red bumps on the skin. Sometimes they can end up becoming infected, which means treatment with tablets or antibiotic creams is needed. However, you won’t need to worry about this with laser hair removal, as the follicle is killed, which stops new hairs from growing, therefore, preventing ingrown hairs.

Save time

Did you know that 88 per cent of women have spent more than four months of their life removing hair from their bodies? Compare this with the length of time your laser hair removal treatment takes, and you can see a big difference.

Save money

Not only are you going to save a considerable amount of time, but a considerable amount of money too. A lot of people think that laser hair removal is costly, however, when you compare the cost of this treatment with shaving and waxing, you see a big difference. The average cost of shaving for a woman over her lifetime is £7,000, whereas the average cost of waxing is a monumental £17,000. Therefore, while it may cost a little bit more upfront, you are going to save huge amounts of money in the long run.

Improved skin

Not only does it get rid of unwanted hair, but it also improves your skin too. This is because waxing and shaving can irritate the skin. A common complaint of shaving is rashes and dry skin and for those who wax, people often experience red bumps and some people have had boils too. You don’t have to worry about any of this with laser hair removal treatment. After you’ve completed your treatments, your skin will be silky smooth.
