Shaving is the most popular form of removing unwanted hair. When you shave, you know that the results are only going to last for a short while. Some guys shave in the morning and need to shave again by the end of the day. Some women shave their legs one day and before the end of the week are back shaving again. This is why many people are frustrated with manual forms of hair removal. They are desperately looking for something that allows them to remove their hair permanently or that allows them to remove hair for a longer period of time. This is why laser hair removal and waxing are superior options.
The Laser Option
There are number of benefits that come from using lasers to remove hair. First, the lasers we use are precise. When you shave using a razor, you know that with just a slip of the hand you could accidentally shave off hair that you did not want to remove, which can make shaving facial hair difficult. Lasers are designed to target the pigment in your hair follicle. It has the ability to pinpoint which areas are going to be treated and which ones are going to be left untouched.
Laser hair removal has been approved by the FDA as a way to create permanent hair reduction. In some cases this treatment may lead to permanent hair removal. But, in most cases, it will leave you with a long period of time with no hair growth and then if the hair does start to regrow, it grows back a lot thinner and lighter.
The Waxing Option
You might think that laser hair removal is not the right option for you, which is fine. There are a number of benefits that come from waxing as opposed to shaving. For example, when you wax an area, the hair stays away longer because you are removing the hair from the root.
When you shave, you put yourself at risk for rashes, especially if you have sensitive skin. This does not happen with waxing. Waxing will not produce the same long-term results that you get from lasers, but the hair will usually grow back slower and finer. Your skin is smooth after the treatment because the hairs are pulled from the roots, so there is no stubble.
