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.
