Grooming standards often demand that we spend a lot of time removing unwanted body hair. Men need to groom their beard or shave it off entirely in many professions, and some men also like to remove their chest and underarm hair. Women are expected to remove leg and underarm hair, as well as any stray facial hairs and to shape their eyebrows. In some locales, pubic hair is also expected to be either carefully groomed or shaved off on people of all genders. If you are sick and tired of all this endless shaving and are ready to consider a permanent solution, laser hair removal offers up a host of benefits to those living in Chicago.
Better Skin Integrity
Shaving exposes you to the possibility of cuts and ingrown hairs, both of which leave you susceptible to infection. While this may not be a problem if you are young and healthy, it can be a problem once you reach your senior years or if you are even ill enough to have a compromised immune system. By having laser hair removal treatments, you can ensure you won’t be exposing yourself to the possibility of infection from shaving later in life. This also has the added bonus of avoiding scarring from shaving.
Better Skin Quality
Shaving can be very harsh to sensitive skin. Not only can scars form from errant nicks and cuts, the scraping of the blade can strip away natural skin oils. This loss of moisture can leave your skin dry and itchy. Moisturizing lotions and body washes can help, but they can also clog pores and cause other skin irritations. With laser hair removal, your skin will retain its natural moisture and you can enjoy better skin quality with far less products and effort.
More Time for Yourself
For those who lead active lifestyles, carving out time for yourself can be a challenge. The hour or more spent each week on shaving could instead be used to take an adult enrichment course, attend a public lecture or indulge your favorite hobbies. By removing an entire step of your grooming ritual, you will give that time back to yourself.
Less Expensive Over Time
Shaving may seem like a cheap way to remove hair, but the cost mounts up over the course of years. Razor cartridges, shaving cream, soothing lotions and moisturizers really rack up over the course of a year. If you then factor that cost, plus inflation, and multiply it by how many more years you expect to live, the cost can be astronomical when compared to the cost of laser hair removal.
If you have had enough of shaving and are ready to reap these benefits for yourself, laser hair removal may be the right option for you.
