Laser Hair Removal Versus Waxing And Shaving

Posted on June 30, 2014 by Dr Elenora Fedoneko

One of the best ways to complement a perfect summer wardrobe is with smooth, hair-free legs,but shaving and waxing does not always cut it. Many patients are curious about the difference between waxing, shaving, and laser hair removal.

How waxing and shaving affects patients’ skin

When patients look for hair removal solutions, one of the first things that comes to mind is waxing. Waxing can leave painful red rashes and does not stop hair growth completely. Furthermore it can still cause ingrown hair, folliculitis and irritation of the skin.

Shaving does not remove the hair from the skin completely, but instead cuts the follicle, allowing hair to grow back quickly. Shaving can cause cuts, razor burn, and ingrown hair.

Why you should use laser hair removal

Laser hair removal usually requires six quick treatments before the hair is removed.

The YAG laser targets hair follicles which prevents hair from growing back. It is FDA approved for all skin types.Laser hair removal prevents ingrown hair and folliculitis.
