LHR vs. Waxing/Razor

Why choose laser hair reduction over waxing/razor?

1. Save money in the long run

Laser Hair Reduction is a permanent solution for body hair that costs more than getting waxing done at once but if you will calculate the amount you spend every month on waxing that automatically costs 100 times more than LHR.

2. Save your time

One session of Laser Hair Reduction takes around 30 minutes for one part of the body which is almost equal to getting waxing done but LHR gives you permanent relief from body hair whereas waxing is a temporary solution. After laser hair removal treatment, you no longer have to spend time shaving or going to appointments to get the hair waxed. You will have clean smooth skin without the hassle of shaving or waxing.

3. Get rid of ingrown hair

Laser Hair Reduction Treatment damages hair follicles within the skin that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth whereas waxing plucks body hair from inside the skin after a period of time hair follicles produce new hair which might result in ingrown hair and strawberry legs in some cases. LHR is a good option to choose if your skin gets ingrown hairs or strawberry legs after waxing.

4. Get painless hair reduction

Laser Hair Reduction is a completely painless process. The laser beam used in the process gives a sensation like tickling but it does not affect the skin or give any harm or pain

5. It’s a permanent solution

Most people see permanent, lasting results with laser hair reduction. In some cases, people may need a touch-up after a few months or years, but it is the best long-term solution to get rid of body hair.  

How does Laser Hair Reduction Work?

Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) that is absorbed by the pigment melanin in the hair. The light energy then converts into heat, which damages the sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. Most people have permanent hair loss after an average of three to six sessions. A cooling gel mechanism is applied to the skin before starting the laser treatment to protect the skin from getting harmed. 

Laser Hair Treatment does not have any side effects; the only skin problem people face after the treatment is mild redness which goes away after a few hours. In some situations, you cannot take laser hair reduction treatments which are metal implants inside the body, pregnancy, nursing, and people with a history of keloid scars.

Is Skin Pigmentation Curable?

is skin pigmentation curable

Hyperpigmentation is the reason.

Hyperpigmentation causes your skin to darken. It refers to the patches of skin that become darker than the surrounding areas of skin. It occurs when the skin produces excess melanin (the pigment that gives skin its color).

Burns, bruises, acne, rashes, or sun exposure to the skin can cause it to produce more melanin and lead to dark spots. Hyperpigmentation can appear as brown, black, grey, red, or pink spots or patches, these spots are called age spots, sun spots, or liver spots. Genetic reasons, hormone changes, thyroid disorders, etc can also be the reason for hyperpigmentation.

How to get rid of hyperpigmentation?

There are a few options that work to neutralize excess melanin production and get rid of hyperpigmentation. All types of dark spots on your skin can be lightened back to your natural skin tone.

To even out your skin you can use skin care products. Make sure to choose the right products that contain ingredients like Retinol, Vitamin C, and Asafoetida which boost the growth of skin cells, block melanin production and inhibit the production of dark spots.

If over-the-counter creams are not helping your skin with hyperpigmentation removal, then you should give a try to technological skin care treatments.

Treatment to cure hyperpigmentation or dark spots

Technological skin care such as Quick Fix Radiance and Glycolic peel helps in reducing dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Quick-Fix Radiance Facial is inspired by global celebrity-grade facials. This facial uses a broad spectrum of light that penetrates the deepest layers of the skin. It uses intense light pulses to renew your skin cells. It stimulates collagen and maintains the protein quotient of the skin. Get your laser facial done by Avataar skincare technologies in the comfort of your home.

Are there any patches on your skin lighter than the skin color?

Hypopigmentation is the reason.

Hypopigmentation occurs due to low amounts of melanin in the skin which causes lighter color patches on the skin than the surrounding skin. Causes of hypopigmentation can be genetic or health conditions. The cure for hypopigmentation depends on the cause such as:

  • Vitiligo – Vitiligo spreads on the skin over a period of time
  • Albinism – Albinism is caused due to genetic factors and can’t be cured over a person’s lifetime
  • Pityriasis alba – Pityriasis alba usually resolves after a period of time
  • Pityriasis Versicolor – Pityriasis Versicolor often can be cured with antifungal treatment.
