Growing body hair is natural, but it can be a pain in the neck especially if it grows in unwanted places, or if you have a hormonal imbalance that causes excess hair growth.
Sure, you can wax or shave, but these methods cause skin irritation and ingrown hairs, are time consuming, and the hair always grows back. Although they seem like a cheaper option, the costs of shaving and waxing add up over time. It's estimated that women on average spend $10,000 in shaving products throughout their lives.
Here at Cosmetic Surgery of New York, we proudly offer top-notch laser hair removal services in order to provide you with a convenient, long term solution to unwanted hair and positively affect your life, self-confidence, and more.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a laser or intense, pulsating light beam to remove body hair. When having laser hair removal, the hair follicles are treated, and the high heat of the laser causes damage to the follicle. After laser hair removal the hair will fall out and, thanks to the damage done to the follicle, it will eventually stop growing back.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
The following benefits of laser hair removal can help improve both your self image and your quality of life.
When you have laser hair removal, you may pay for a package of treatments which should be sufficient to remove the majority, if not all of your unwanted hair. After that, little or no hair will return, which means that you'll no longer have to pay for razors, epilators, depilatory creams, or hair removal treatments like waxing. Please note that single treatments may be needed occassionally to get rid of stubborn hair.
Laser hair removal treatments are quick. Once they're done, you'll no longer have to dedicate time regularly to removing the hair you don't want on your body.
You can remove hair from MOST anywhere on the body
Some hair removal processes are too harsh to be done on places like the face. Laser hair removal treatments may be done almost anywhere on the body.
It doesn't cause much pain
There are hair removal methods that hurt like waxing, but laser hair removal is pretty tolerable. Most people compare the feeling to getting a rubber band snapped on your skin, thought there are ways to numb the skin prior to treatment.
No more ingrown hairs
Most other ways you remove hair can irritate the skin or cause ingrown hairs that can be annoying or uncomfortable. Laser hair removal doesn't cause irritation after it's over, so you won't have bumps, bruises, irritations, or itching.
You can shave between treatments
Treatments like waxing and epilating require you to grow hair to a certain length before you treat it again. However, laser hair removal works on the follicle, so you can shave your hair between treatments and keep your body as hair-free as you want.
It's done by a professional
When you get laser hair removal done by a professional, you can ensure that your hair removal process is thorough, safe, and effective. At-home hair removal processes you do yourself can end up hurting you or leaving hair behind, but you can be rest assured that you'll be in good hands when you go in for laser hair removal.
