Laser hair removal is something I’m hearing a lot about right now. While some of us are more a winter growler kind of person, others take their grooming more seriously. Hair removal is something of a sore subject for women especially. There have been a number of public awareness campaigns about the difference in price between men’s razors and women’s razors for example. With laser hair removal an option, I can see why men and women are moving away from razors, waxing and more, opting for long-term results and less effort!
What is Laser Hair Removal
Of all the treatments I’ve heard or read about, laser hair removal is the easiest to understand in terms of how it actually works. If I’ve got this right (have a look at the Pulse Light Clinic website for a more thorough explanation), lasers target the hair follicle via laser light which eventually destroys the follicle. No follicle, no hair growth. It can eliminate some hair permanently, whereas some people may benefit from occasional top-ups. The results vary from person to person. Those with darker hair tend to benefit from more follicle eliminate than those who are very fair.
The benefits include:
- Smoother skin
- No or much less pesky shaving
- Less skin irritation from hair growth
- Significantly fewer ingrown hairs
Who Might Choose Laser Hair Removal
Anyone might opt to try laser hair removal. Someone with PCOS that struggles with excess hair growth, anyone fed up of traditional hair removal methods or for whom hair removal creams, waxing and so on isn’t appropriate and anyone who wants to feel good and/or is looking to boost their self-esteem and their confidence.
Laser Hair Removal and Me
Would I consider laser hair removal myself, absolutely! I loathe the shaving and plucking rituals I, like most women, put myself through. I don’t do it for public approval, I do it because it makes me feel good. That doesn’t mean that I enjoy all of the wasted time and the constant maintenance that comes with the grind that is hair removal.
Would you consider it? Have you had it?
