7 Amazing Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

    People’s lifestyles and preferences change every now and then. Notably, in this 21st century, removing unwanted body and facial hairs has become a beauty standard more than a priority. Though people tried out different hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, plucking, etc, in the last few decades, each of them has more disadvantages than its advantages. That’s when laser hair removal received the limelight and became the savior.

    Also, lately, people have a misconception that laser hair removal intends only for aesthetic purposes. But the hard truth is – it can remove any unwanted hair from your body. In fact, it helps to remove the terminal hairs (pubic & axillary hair that’s thick and dense). To help you understand these kinds of myths better and to explore the incredible advantages of laser hair removal treatment, here we’ve summarized in seven ways how laser treatment benefits hair removal and how it surpasses other hair removal methods.

    Seven Amazing Benefits of Laser Hair Removal (3Ps and 4Ls)

    1. Precise hair removal
    2. Prevents ingrown hair
    3. Promotes skin tone
    4. Less painful
    5. Low cost
    6. Little maintenance
    7. Long-term solution

    8. Precise hair removal

    Conventional hair removal methods like shaving, creaming, or waxing can help in removing mass hair or all hairs in a broader area. Whereas, with laser hair removal, you can target precise or specific strands of hair in a specific or narrowed area. As a result, you can fine-tune which hair or hair follicles must get treated.

    For men, this is useful in shaping their beards. And for women, this is useful in the case of shaping their brows. This is also useful in the case of a bikini, nose, or other hairline correction or permanent removal.

    Importantly, the laser hair removal method focuses only on the targeted hair follicles and does not disturb or alter the surrounding skin or hair follicles. 

    1. Prevents ingrown hair

    People who regularly wax or use epilators knows how bothering the ingrown hairs are. One, these methods lead to the growth of several ingrown hairs. Two, when you try removing these ingrown hairs, either they don’t rip off or cause inflammation or bump as a result of repeated trials.

    When it comes to laser hair treatment, ingrown hairs are completely eliminated and it will not allow for further growth as the root of the hair gets destroyed.

    1. Promotes skin tone

    By treating unwanted hair follicles, the laser hair removal technique enables you to enjoy 100% hair-free skin. Accordingly, this reduces the contrast between your skin and hair (previously). Now, how does it impact the aesthetics? You get an even skin tone. Your skin becomes smooth than before. You won’t witness any hair regrowth in the treated sections.

    Unlike other hair removal methods, it does not cause any redness, burns, bumps, or inflammation.     

    1. Less painful

    Be it tweezing, waxing, or threading, hair removal is indeed painful. And the worst part is you have to undergo the same pain again and again. Whereas, laser hair removal involves only the emittance of laser light. This is way too less painful or negligible. Experts in this field compare laser hair removal pain to snapping an elastic band against your skin. Also, this process is one-time (until the laser treatment) and does not repeat every month.

    Now, tell us which is less painful.

    1. Low cost

    First, calculate how much you’re currently paying for waxing or threading a month. Second, prorate this recurring cost for 10 – 12 years.

    In India, the laser hair removal treatment cost lies in the range of ~ INR 1,500 to 50,000. The highest charges apply for full-body hair removal.  On average, it comes to around ~ INR 10,000[2]. Ofcourse, this is a one-time investment (cost-effective), unlike the other methods.

    1. Little maintenance

    After your laser hair removal treatment, you need not go for monthly or quarterly follow-ups. Maybe, in a few cases, you may need to follow up once a year for touch-ups. Otherwise, you need not take an effort to maintain your laser-treated skin or sections.

    1. Long-term solution

    As per the principle of laser hair removal, once your hair follicles get destroyed by the laser light/ heat, the melanin pigment cannot continue contributing to hair growth. Thus, the laser-treated hair follicles become incompetent to grow new hairs. This situation prolongs for years or decades. Hence, we call laser hair removal one of the permanent hair removal methods. 

    Unfortunately, all other hair removal methods that we’ve seen are temporary and not long-lasting like laser hair removal.

    Despite these amazing benefits of laser treatment, we know what’s running in your mind. Side effects! So, here are our answers!
