Shaving is a Thing of the Past

Posted on October 24, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Shaving is the first hair removal method that many women try. By the time they’re teenagers, most girls have learned to tackle leg and underarm hair with a razor. It’s definitely an “old-school” beauty routine. But like many things in life, older doesn’t necessarily mean better. These days, we have a much better option for getting rid of unwanted hair— laser hair removal.

Reason #1: Shaving is time consuming

If you’re like most women, you probably shave your legs, underarms, and bikini line. On average, that takes about twenty minutes. And since it’s only a matter of time before the hair grows back, you likely shave every other day or so. That’s 60 hours per year spent on shaving!

Reason #2: Shaving has unattractive side effects

Razor burn, cuts and nicks— shaving certainly isn’t always pretty. And while this hair removal method might leave you hair-free temporarily, you’ll typically see regrowth within a couple of days. Often, the hair that grows back is thicker, coarser, and darker than the original hair.

Reason #3: Laser hair removal is quick, easy, and permanent

Unlike shaving, laser hair removal is a permanent solution for the unwanted hair on your face and body. In as few as 6-8 sessions, you can have smooth, hair-free skin that you’ve always wanted. And laser hair removal can be used on any part of the face or body— as long as the hair is dark, laser hair removal will be effective. Treatment appointments are usually scheduled every 4-6 weeks. The sessions are quick and laser hair removal has very few side effects, beyond minor, temporary redness.
