There are a number of reasons to why laser hair removal can potentially be a better option to removing hair from your body than using a disposable razor.
Disposable razors can be very costly, especially if you are shaving at least twice to three times a week. The electronic razors cost even more. Disposable razors are known for leaving behind red bumps, ingrown hair, and even thicker hair due to the razors being too harsh for sensitive skin. Razors also do not have moisturizing components to soothe the skin before, which also leads to adverse effects. The pros about using razors is that they are very convienent. You can take them on the go and you can purchase them at almost every grocery store.
Laser hair removal can be more painful than razors. They also require multiple sessions to achieve satisfactory results. Laser hair removal is also very expensive if you need these multiple sessions and upkeep. The other issue with laser hair removal is finding the right place with the correct technology. The pros of laser hair removal is that it thins the hair, and in some places it will not come back at all. Another pro of laser hair is that it has no short term risks such as ingrown hairs and bumps, and it will actually prevent them from ever showing up. Lastly, laser has no long term health risks.
Whatever your hair removal technique is, they both have both pros and cons. If you are looking for a more semi permanent fix then call to book an appointment today for laser hair removal treatment at our new ScarelssMedSpa.
