How would you feel if you knew you never had to shave again for a long time? Of course, we are not talking about just enduring the unwanted hair on different parts of your body. We are talking about having smooth, silky skin that is free of unwanted hair and never having to shave or wax for a long time. Thankfully, this is a real possibility. Thanks to the laser hair removal, you can forget about shaving for a while.
While some people are able to experience satisfying results by simply shaving unwanted hair off their body, most people do not like the results they see. The problem is that the hair grows back quite quickly. If you shave your legs to get rid of the unwanted hair on them, you likely have to do this at least a couple of times a week. The same is probably true when it comes to your underarms, bikini area and other places on your body. Just think of the time that you could save by using laser hair removal. You will no longer have to dedicate a bunch of your time getting ready for the day by getting rid of unwanted hair.
Another problem that comes with shaving is dealing with skin irritation and ingrown hairs. If you have sensitive skin, you have probably gone through the process again and again of shaving, dealing with skin irritation, needing the hair to grow out for the skin irritation to go away, and then starting the process all over again. While skin irritation may be better than dealing with unwanted hair on the body, it is definitely not comfortable.
It is important to understand that you may need several treatment sessions, and you will likely have to return to our office for touch-up treatments every couple of years. Laser hair removal is not a permanent hair removal treatment. Instead, it is a semi-permanent hair reduction treatment.
One of the best things about this treatment is that when you do see hair growth again in the future, it is likely that the hair that does return will be lighter and thinner than the hair that was originally there. You can shave it off as soon as you see it and then schedule an appointment to come in for another laser hair removal treatment session.
It is absolutely fine for you to shave in between laser hair removal treatment sessions. However, do not wax or pluck the hair. Laser hair removal uses energy and heat from the laser to destroy the hair follicle, so it needs to be intact during treatment.
