At Juvia Med Spa, we get a lot of questions about laser hair removal. People are curious about whether or not it really works, if it’s safe, if it will work for their hair and skin tone, and how long they can expect it to take. To help you get a better understanding of one of our most popular procedures, we’ve put together a list of the top five pros and cons of laser hair removal.
Pro – It Works
First of all, yes, laser hair removal works. Depending on the size of the area and how dense the hair is, you may need to come back for a few sessions, but the procedure is very effective. For most patients, hair never grows back in the target area, and any hair that does return is fine and thin, making it easy to pluck with tweezers if necessary.
Con – It Can Be Temporarily Uncomfortable
Some of our patients have said that laser hair removal feels a lot like being snapped with a rubber band or getting a mild sunburn. It’s not a painful process, but it’s not always completely comfortable, either. Immediately afterward, to help you feel more comfortable, we’ll supply you with ice packs. This will soothe the skin and reduce inflammation, but you should stay out of the sun for at least the first few days after the procedure.
Pro – It’ll Save You a Lot of Time
The laser hair removal procedure itself is a fast process that you can have done on your lunch break from work. Not only that, but consider how much time you’ll save when you don’t have to shave, pluck, or wax that area regularly. One of the lesser known benefits of laser hair removal is how much more free time patients have once it’s complete.
Con – You’re Probably Going to Need More Than One Session
Unlike waxing or shaving, a single session of laser hair removal won’t leave you with bare, clean skin. Most patients have to come back somewhere between two and eight times (sometimes more, depending on the density of the hair and the size of the target area) before they see their desired results. However, unlike these other hair removal solutions, laser hair removal is permanent and doesn’t need to be repeated once a day or once every few weeks.
Pro – It’s Completely Safe
Finally, some treatments just aren’t proven to be as safe as laser hair removal. This procedure is FDA approved, and it’s completely safe. You can trust that you’ll experience no pain and minimal discomfort, and you’ll love the results.
