As more women prepare their bodies for the beach this season, laser hair removal is an attractive option for getting rid of body hair permanently and more efficiently than waxing and shaving.
Many women experience a significant amount of inflammation, bumps and even ingrown hairs when shaving or waxing the bikini area, and now some new options in laser hair removal can help to make the process simple and even pain free.
The Soprano XL and the LightSheer Duet lasers are among the two newest lasers available on the market, and have built-in cooling methods that can effectively get rid of body hair without causing pain, burning or skin damage. These lasers use both suction and deeper penetration than the conventional laser to get rid of body hair quickly and efficiently.
Most women need to undergo a series of several treatments in order to achieve the final result. Since the hair grows in cycles and the lasers treat only the top layer of skin, it typically takes four to five visits to achieve and sustain noticeable results. The lasers work by killing the hair follicle using varying levels of energy. Once the follicle is dead, the hair can no longer grow. Any remaining fuzz can be shaved off.
These innovative lasers are among the most expensive options for hair removal, but can cost less than waxing and shaving in the long run.
These and other innovative laser hair removal devices are available at several medical spas and some cosmetic surgery centers in the United States, and some do offer discounts on a series, as well as affordably-priced laser hair removal packages.
Laser hair removal may not be suitable for all skin tones and skin types, so it’s important for individuals to undergo a professional consultation before starting a treatment. In some cases, certain medications and supplements may cause unwanted side effects during the treatment.
