Just because the warmth of those summer months may be fading fast, doesn’t mean you should ignore that unwanted facial or body hair that continues to bother you.
If you’re tired of shaving under your arms, your chest, legs or any other place on our body, you might want to consider Laser Hair Removal. Often referred to as light-based hair removal or laser hair reduction, this is a great procedure to keep unwanted hair at bay.
So, put away those razor blades, hot waxes and other depilatories and think about laser hair removal. You’ve probably heard about it for years and often wondered what it was all about. Just think of how great you will look and feel in the upcoming warmer months- minus the hair!
What It Is
Laser hair removal is a convenient, noninvasive method for permanently reducing or removing unwanted facial or body hair. It leaves the skin looking smoother and silkier than waxing, electrolysis or razors, and is a gentle technique that can treat larger areas effectively with minimal discomfort and with no downtime. Today, experts say laser hair removal is one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed in the United States.
When to Consider Laser Hair Removal
- Again, think about this procedure if you have unwanted facial or body hair that makes you feel self-conscious or limits your ability to wear certain clothing. For example, if you like to wear certain clothing that doesn’t hide unwanted hair i.e. tank tops, skirts or bathing suits, laser hair removal is for you.
- If you have dark hair and light skin.
