Beware of the Hair: 3 Things to Know About Laser Hair Removal

Leg - Laser Hair RemovalBeing a woman can sometimes be a nuisance. From getting your hair done to putting on makeup, it can seem like the list of beauty routines is endless. Not to mention having to shave just about every area of your body while in the shower. If you’re fed up with spending what seems like hours in the shower having to shave, only to come out with razor burn and bumps, it might be time to look into laser hair removal.


Is it Safe?

When having areas such as your bikini or brazillian area lasered off, many women get a little nervous about a laser being that close to their genitalia. However, there are absolutely no side-effects regarding your reproductive area. In fact almost all areas approved by your doctor should be safe.


However, although very rare, side-effects of laser hair removal include some light blistering, redness, swelling, scarring, and skin discoloration. It is advised to wear sunscreen on the targeted areas for at least a month after treatment in order to avoid any sun damage or discoloration.


How Long Does It Take?

Although it would be nice to walk in and immediately have all of your hair permanently zapped away, laser hair removal is a little more time consuming than that. Depending on the color of your hair and the area in which you are having lasered, it can take anywhere from one session to anywhere above five. And each session typically takes around an hour.


Will It Last?

The best thing about laser hair removal is that it will last for forever— which means that you can throw your razor and shave gel in the garbage! After you complete your required treatments you may notice a few areas that weren’t targeted as well as others, which is completely normal. Just go back into your office and schedule another appointment.


Leave all of the beauty routines to the fun stuff like hair and makeup, and kiss the days of shaving goodbye with laser hair removal.
