If you’re not happy with your results with tweezing, waxing or shaving to eliminate unwanted hair, laser hair removal is the perfect alternative for you. Laser hair removal is one of the most recognized procedures in the U.S and is becoming more widely known around the world. You should know that this is not a painful procedure. Laser treatments are minimally discomforting.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal emits high-end beams that focus light onto hair follicles. The actual pigment in the follicles then absorbs this light, which causes the elimination of the hair. As the laser passes through your skin, it converts the beams into heat. The heat is then absorbed by the hair’s dark pigment, melanin, in the follicle. Finally, the heat disrupts the hair follicle, ultimately hindering growth.

Lasers vs. Waxing
Although both methods ultimately reveal smooth skin, they are not the same in the long run. When waxing, there is a certain wait period to allow the hair to grow, which can be inconvenient. Waxing is also very painful and can cause ingrown hairs.
It also must be done every month. Lasers, on the other hand, are a long-term solution for hair removal, and they are minimally discomforting. It causes zero damage to the skin, which allows even people with sensitive skin to be treated.
Lasers vs. Shaving
Shaving can be quite tempting, as it is completely painless and rather convenient in the short term. Yet, when shaving, you will notice regrowth is rather rapid, and hair may appear thicker than usual. Razor burns and cuts happen frequently when shaving, and people can also experience ingrown hairs. In the long run, using laser hair removal will guarantee that you no longer need to worry about hair growing back for months on end.
Lasers vs. Electrolysis
You may not have heard of this one, as electrolysis is not the most common go-to hair removal procedure. This treatment uses fine needle-like electrodes which utilize an electrical current to the follicle. Electrolysis is a risk, as it can cause scarring and skin discoloration.
Treatments are also painful and can become very uncomfortable. Contradictingly, laser hair removal does not involve sending any electrical currents, as this can be painful, and does not involve any high risks such as skin damages, and blemishes.
It’s a good idea to consider many options when deciding how you remove unwanted hair. It is important to consider however, that such choices only perform well under short-term circumstances when you should consider what you need or desire in the long-run. As per expenses, although spending a small amount every month for alternatives does not seem like a high cost, annually it may be expensive.
Laser hair removal is not only a great choice for longer results, but it is a financial benefit too. Schedule an appointment with Elias Dermatology today to get started.
