While the laser hair removal method does not completely get rid of unwanted hair, it does provide up to a 95 percent reduction of new hair growth and the new hair that grows through will be finer and easier to maintain. The New York Laser Clinic offers medical-grade laser hair removal in London, with gold standard lasers and long-lasting effective hair removal for every skin type, effective after just one session. It us suitable for removing hair on the face, legs, underarms, arms, bikini area, buttocks, peri-anal area and the back.
Here are five benefits of laser hair removal:
It is quick
Laser hair removal treatments actually don’t take much time at all. It takes around 15 minutes to perform treatment on underarms or the bikini area and only about an hour for areas like arms and legs.
When you get laser hair removal treatments done, you eliminate the need for buying new razors, shaving cream or paying for waxing appointments at the salon. The cost of having laser hair removal done has decreased and there are often discounts available and as you won’t have to go as often it will save you money in the long-run.
No ingrown hairs
Laser hair removal is a great option to make sure you don’t suffer from ingrown hairs, which as we all know are very uncomfortable. Laser hair removal is also a great option for people who have sensitive skin and have skin irritation after shaving or waxing. If you have any concerns you can always get in touch with the clinic before hand.
If you shave your body hair, we all know it can take time, especially if you realise you’ve missed a bit whilst having a shower – shaving also needs to be done every couple of days. You will have clean-shaven skin without the hassle of shaving or waxing. You can have laser hair removal treatment done over your lunch break.
No need to grow hair between treatments
Unlike with waxing, you can shave in between your treatments. You no longer have to wait to grow your hair out because with laser hair removal you can shave as much as you want in between the laser hair removal sessions.
Laser hair removal is on around the same pain level as waxing so it is not pain-free. If you have sensitive skin, there are numbing creams that can be used, discomfort levels will depend on the pain threshold of the individual and how comfortable they feel during the treatment. The lasers emit a light at a specific wavelength that will be absorbed by the pigment of the hair follicle without damaging the skin. The light is converted into heat energy, which then disables the hair follicle so that it will not produce more hair. In general it can take between 6 to 8 treatments to achieve a full clear area. After laser hair removal you should keep your skin moisturised as sometimes it may feel a little sensitive a bit like sunburn.
