Are you sick of using razors, shaving creams, or waxing? Are you looking for a permanent and a better solution? Have you ever considered laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a great and safe option for you, if you want to have hairless skin and smooth skin at the same time. The best thing yet is that the results last for a very long time, unlike the results of shaving and other hair removal methods. Does it sound too good to be true? Well, yes it is true! With laser hair removal, you will get rid of your body hair once and for all for a long period of time. Besides the cosmetic reasons and the desire to be able to wear a bikini or a short skirt whenever you want, while not having the need to prepare for at least one hour, there is no other reason for laser hair removal. But, isn’t that enough? Every woman’s dream comes true will laser hair removal. And yes, we have all been there and done that so far. We have all tried razors, but the hair will start to grow back in just a couple of days, and it is often thicker, stronger, and even more than before.

We have all tried depilatory creams, as well. Even though the effect of these creams lasts longer compared to razors, still in a week or two your body hair will start to grow back, not to mention that you will need to apply the depilatory cream first and wait for at least 5 to 10 minutes for the cream to have its effect. You will end up spending at least half an hour every two weeks. Not to mention the fact that maybe just that day when you want to wear that skirt to work or to go out, your legs are not shaved and maybe you don’t have a depilatory cream at home. I guess every once in a while you just forget to get the cream at the store, don’t you? I have a couple of times myself, and when I most needed it, I just didn’t have it at home to use and was just too late to go to the store, get the depilatory cream, and come home to shave my legs and finally get ready and go out.

Waxing! Is there a woman who has not tried waxing at least once in her life? I think there isn’t. Well, what can I say about waxing, except that it hurts; it really hurts like hell, especially near those private parts! However, a good thing of waxing is that its effect lasts for about a month, at least in my case. But, who want to experience the pain of waxing every month. I don’t.

Luckily, something great has been developed for us. Laser hair removal is a great solution for all those who are just sick of razors, depilatory creams, and waxing. If you want to have hairless skin for a long period of time, laser hair removal is a great option for you.

Laser hair removal does not make miracles. Before even thinking of getting your body hair removed with a laser, it is good for you to be well-informed, so you know where you stand.

First of all, when it comes to laser hair removal, it is necessary to find a well trained professional, usually a dermatologist, who will do it for you. Even though laser hair removal is a safe and painless procedure, when performed by unprofessional people, it can become dangerous.

Almost any part of the human body can be treated with a laser. However, there are a few exceptions, especially the eyebrows and the area of the face around the eyes due to the possibility of a severe damage from the laser to the eyes.

Also, a good thing to know is that with only one laser hair removal treatment, you will not get rid of your body hair. In general, a few treatments are necessary, about five to seven treatments, sometimes even more. How many treatments you need will depend on the area that is being treated, as well as how much body hair you have. Some people have a lot of hair, while others just a little bit. A laser works only in those hair follicles that are in the growing phase in the moment when the treatment is being performed. This means, that not all your hair will be at the growing phase in a single moment. Hair grows in cycles, so normally you will need a couple of treatments until your skin becomes smooth and hairless, just as you want it to be.

One laser hair removal treatment lasts from a couple of minutes up to half an hour. This also depends on the area that is being treated.

Remember that before going for laser hair removal, you should not wax or shave the area that is being treated for at least a couple of weeks. Also, you should not get a suntan for at least a couple of weeks before the treatment. On the day of the laser hair removal treatment, you should not use any creams, lotions, or deodorants.

Laser hair removal works almost for everyone. People with lighter skin and with darker hair benefit the most. However, people with gray, red, or blond hair do not benefit very much from a laser hair removal treatment, as the laser has difficulty identifying these colors, especially on darker skin.

Does laser hair removal treatment hurt? Don’t worry it does not hurt a lot. People often describe it as a rubber band snapping the skin.

Laser hair removal is not just for women. Laser hair removal is a great option for men, too, who want to have their hair removed for a long period of time.

Laser hair removal will not eliminate or destroy your body hair forever. Every six months or a year, repetitive laser hair removal treatment is necessary, just to keep the effect going and keep your skin smooth and hairless continuously.

Final Thoughts

While laser hair removal may not be for everybody, it can be very effective, providing long-lasting hair removal and smooth skin.
