There are plenty of hair removal techniques available, including shaving and waxing, but not only can these methods be inconvenient and painful, they are also only temporary solutions.

Laser hair removal is an effective way of removing your hair for long-lasting and even permanent results. It is a completely safe procedure that involves using a powerful laser to remove unwanted hair and is carried out by an experienced professional.

The procedure involves the laser heating and then destroying hair follicles in the skin to disrupt hair growth. The most common areas to be treated are the face, legs, arms, underarms and bikini line, but other problematic areas like the lower back and stomach are also possible.

If you are still a little bit unsure about the procedure and the benefits over other hair removal techniques, then here are five reasons to help you change your mind.

1) COST EFFECTIVE

While the upfront cost may seem pricey, it is a lot cheaper in the long run as you will not need to keep buying razors, creams and regular wax treatments.

2) AVOIDS INGROWN HAIRS

A great benefit of laser hair removal is that it doesn’t form ingrown hairs and can even be a solution to them, so if you’re tired of razor burns and ingrown hairs from shaving or waxing, laser hair removal might just be the answer.

3) SAFE AND EFFECTIVE

The procedure is extremely effective because the laser has been designed for precise results and specifically targets the hair follicle.

It’s understandable that you may be concerned about the safety of the treatment, but lasers have been tested for more than 20 years to ensure that the technology is safe. At Pure Aesthetics, your safety is our top priority, so all of our treatments are performed by registered nurses.

4) FAST PROCEDURE

Treatment times are surprisingly fast, depending on the size of the treatment area of course, but a full bikini line treatment, for example, will only take around 20 minutes. It’s likely that you’ll see results within the first few weeks and most patients can achieve permanent hair loss from between 3 and 7 sessions.

5) TIME SAVING

Once your hair growth is reduced, you’ll save a surprising amount of time not having to shave or wax your unwanted hair. This can add up to a significant amount of time saved over the course of a year or two!

Laser Hair Removal has many Hollywood supporters speaking out in favour of the treatment. Kim Kardashian said: “I am Armenian, so of course I am obsessed with laser hair removal! Arms, bikini, legs, underarms … my entire body is hairless.”
