Laser hair removal can be used on just about any part of the body that contains unwanted hair – it can be used occasionally to reduce or thin hair growth, or it can be applied repeatedly over the course of several months to permanently stop hair from growing back.
Unwanted hair in the bikini area has presented a particular problem for many women – the hair in this area can be especially thick and bristly, and the skin is easily irritated. Traditional shaving can easily lead to ingrown hairs, which in turn can become inflamed and infected. Laser hair removal is a great alternative and gives an unbeatable combination of benefits.
Eliminates Ingrown Hairs
The single most important benefit is that laser hair removal results in the entire hair follicle falling out. There’s no possibility of cut-off hairs snagging and becoming ingrown as they continue growing. This also avoids the primary cause of irritation and infection after shaving.
Leaves Skin Softer and Much Less Irritated
Laser hair removal targets the individual hair follicles – it does not have any effect on the skin itself and can therefore be used on even susceptible parts of the body.
Avoids Cuts and Scars
Shaving always carries the risk of irritating sensitive skin, as well as snagging or cutting the skin. This can result in irritation or even infection, as well as creating slow-to-heal and unaesthetic-looking cuts or scars. Laser hair removal avoids this problem entirely.
Gives Long-Lasting Results
You’ll enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal for an extended period after treatment, and after several sessions, you’ll only need very occasional touchups.
No Need to Allow Hair to Periodically Re-Grow
You don’t need to regrow your hair before having a laser hair removal session – unlike waxing, the laser does not need hairs to protrude to be able to remove them. If you do have some hair regrowth between the treatments, you should always shave the area before your next laser hair removal session.
