Why Bother Waxing and Shaving? Learn How Laser Hair Removal Can Change Your Life

Unwanted hair on the face or body is a problem that affects women and men alike. Many patients aren’t satisfied with temporary solutions like waxing or shaving because they’re too painful and time-consuming. Laser hair removal is the ideal treatment to achieve a permanent result. It’s an effective, long-term way to eliminate unwanted hair, saving you time and discomfort. 

Specialist Gifty Aidoo, FNP-C, at Aesthetic Lab in Modesto, California, provides laser hair removal treatments to improve your beauty routine. This innovative treatment option leaves you with smooth skin without the annoyances of tweezing, waxing, or shaving sensitive areas.

Better than shaving

Using a razor is a suitable method to get rid of unwanted hair. It’s a painless process but not a permanent solution. The razor shaves off the hairs bluntly, causing unpleasant stubble the very next day. Skin irritation, redness, pimples, and even inflammation often develop. Because razors cut your hair into a sharp tip, you’re more likely to develop ingrown hairs, shaving bumps, or razor burn. 

Easier than tweezing

Hair removal with tweezers is tedious and time-consuming. Tweezing hair is also uncomfortable and even painful. It’s okay to pluck one or two stray hairs, but using this method to remove large areas of unwanted hair growth isn’t safe or effective. Plus, you should never pluck hair from a mole, ingrown hair, or inside the nose. Avoid tweezing sensitive areas like your underarms or nipples as well. These are areas of the body that require a professional’s help.

Safer than creams

Depilatory creams can irritate the skin. However, these hair removal creams contain ingredients that aren’t harmless and can even leave you with chemical burns. Besides irritating the skin or triggering allergies, you should only use depilatory creams on small and specific body areas. Hair grows back quickly within a few days after using a depilatory cream.

More effective than waxing

Waxing is a painful and expensive way to remove unwanted hair from your body. Whether you use warm wax or cold wax, you must be pain-resistant. You could burn your skin or it can cause breakouts and ingrown hairs. After a waxing treatment, you might need to ice the area or wear loose clothing to alleviate prolonged discomfort. Waxing isn’t permanent, and the hair returns in about a week.
