Hi Gorgeous! Body hair is one of those things that we all have, but few of us, especially the females, really want to keep. In fact, it can be really annoying, especially when it seems to grow back almost as fast as we wax or shave it off. If you feel like half your week is spent getting rid of those unwanted hairs, it doesn't have to be that way. Laser devices just might solve your problem for you.
Understand your hair
Hair doesn't just grow like trees. It also has a lot of tree-like or plant-like qualities. For example, if you pick pieces of a plant or tree off, it will continue to grow. That's because the root system is left intact. The exact same thing is true when you shave off hair you don't want. You're only getting rid of the upper part of the “plant” instead of the entire thing, root and all. Well, lasers can't always remove the whole root (hair follicle) either, but what they can do is chop the hair right down to where the follicle starts, and sometimes damage the follicles in the process.
Lots of skincare clinic devices on the market today use lasers to treat unwanted hair. The combination of light and heat is able to get down into every layer of skin in a way that razor blades can't. While waxing might be a little more successful at getting hairs down to the follicle than shaving, it doesn't offer the consistent coverage that laser treatment can give.
You see, when you wax your unwanted hair, some of them are ripped out further down than others. You also could miss some individual hairs, just as you probably often miss hairs when you try to shave them off. But when you go to your local skincare clinic for a laser appointment, you will be amazed at how accurate the machines are. Your laser technician can have the device target every single hair in a certain area. Then you'll be confident walking out of the clinic and know that you won't find any stray hairs still remaining later.
Various laser devices vary quite a bit
It's important to note that the skincare treatment market is flooded with laser devices. Each one is a little different from the others. Some of them are better suited to treating certain types of skin. Type refers to both the thickness and the color of the skin, as well as how dry or oily it is. You have to think about all of those things and discuss them with your skincare professional before signing up for laser hair removal treatment.
You also have to consider what other skin issues you may have besides unwanted hair. For example, if you suffer from adult acne then certain laser treatments could aggravate that condition. You may have to search a little longer to find a laser that won't aggravate your acne. You might even decide not to have laser procedures to remove unwanted hair done at all.
Clinical laser require multiple treatments
Last, but not least, remember that clinical laser treatments are usually done in a series. That series could involve several appointments spread over a few weeks, or even a couple of months. After that initial round, you should see that the hair takes a lot longer to grow back and some of it might not return at all. What does grow back may be more manageable at home, but you can also sign up for more laser treatments in the future, if you want to.
