Laser Hair Removal Treatment- A Panacea For Unwanted Hairs
Posted on June 20 2018
‘Super You: How Technology Is Revolutionizing What It Means to Be Human’ by Andy Walker makes mention of an average woman spending whopping 7718 hours shaving and $10000 on shaving products in her entire lifetime. This huge figure is daunting for your pocket; hence, people are switching to some alternative ways to treat their unwanted hairs. A huge shift is palpable towards laser treatment to get rid of unwanted hairs.
The rising trend of laser treatment can be observed from the data of the survey of American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), which shows that there has been 51% rise in laser hair removal treatment since 2012. Apart from various other options available for removing unwanted hair from the body, the most permanent and reliable treatment is laser hair removal treatment.
- Beauty investment
Let’s do a simple mathematics to prove the point how laser hair removal treatment has an upper edge over other procedures in terms of invested money and rate of return. You will be startled to know the fact that laser hair removal treatment is more effective, both in terms of money and permanence.
As discussed, an average woman ends up spending around $10000 in her entire life on the removal of unwanted hairs. Whereas, one session of laser hair removal treatment costs approximately $300, a far better deal than any other cosmetic procedure. One can easily conclude from here that laser hair removal treatment is a healthy beauty investment.
- Bearable Pain
When we talk about pain incurred during the entire laser process, it really depends upon one’s threshold. However, you can expect mild pain or some discomfort while the treatment is carried upon, so it is always suggested to go ahead with a lidocaine cream prior to the procedure to get rid of any pain or discomfort. Moreover, as soon as you will start to witness little discomfort, the process will come to end, thanks to its lightning speed.
- Lightning fast process
Just compare the laser treatment to other processes; you will be surprised to know that laser hair removal treatment is super-fast and perfectly accurate. It precisely targets the dark, coarse hairs leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. The pulse is radiated by laser and pulse takes just fraction of seconds to treat many hairs at the same time. Small areas such as upper lip are easily treated in no time of just less than a minute and large areas may take an hour or so. Depending on the area, average treatment sessions take between 15 to 30 minutes.
While going ahead with laser treatment to get rid of hairs, note that sunlight is the biggest enemy of your newly treated skin. According to Matthew Schulman, an NYC board certified plastic surgeon, “there always stand a chance of pigment changes or darkening and lightening of the skin with any type of laser.” So, once you are done with the treatment, take thorough precautions until your skin gets back to basics.
