There are many effective ways to remove facial hair, including shaving, waxing, plucking, electrolysis, IPL, and depilatory creams. Laser hair removal is a very effective technique that offers some particular benefits when compared to alternative removal methods.
Permanent Facial Hair Removal
A huge advantage of laser hair removal is that regular facial hair removal will become unnecessary after you’ve undergone a relatively small number of sessions. Over the course of a several months laser hair removal sessions will result either in a complete lack of hair growth, or in very greatly reduced growth. The freedom and convenience that this gives is perhaps the biggest advantage of this technique.
Prevents Ingrown Hairs and Minimizes Infection
The focused laser light energy damages individual hair follicles, causing the attached hair to eventually fall out. After several sessions hair either stops growing altogether, or is replaced by much finer and lighter hairs. This greatly reduces or eliminates any chance of ingrown hairs developing. As your skin is not exposed to caustic chemicals or sharp blades there’s also next to no chance of developing skin infections.
You also avoid the painful task of trying to remove ingrown hairs, along with the risk of infection and scarring that can accompany this condition.
Effective on All Skin Types and Complexions
Laser hair removal is effective on a wide range of skin types and tones. It’s especially effective when there’s a large contrast between your skin and hair colors, but it can also be used when this is not the case.
After a few treatments your skin will not only become hair-free, but the individual skin follicles will shrink in size. You’ll notice that applying makeup is easier and more effective when your skin is smooth, hairless, and less inflamed or infected.
Laser hair removal sessions are easy to schedule and typically only take half an hour or less.
Unlike other techniques, you don’t need to let your facial hair grow before being able to treat it – this allows you to avoid the inconvenience and cosmetic effects of having to periodically allow your hair to regrow.
