The Pros and Cons of Laser Hair Removal

Do you dread entering the shower knowing you have to spend 30 minutes shaving? Is it painful for you to shave? For many of us, shaving can be the bane of our existence. Although it removes hair in a pain free way, it takes time, and must be done every few days. If you want to have truly hair-free skin, you may want to opt for laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is a great option for those sick of shaving, waxing, or tweezing. The process can removed hair from the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and even small spots like the upper lip. These machines are extremely precise at targeting hair while leaving the underlying skin undamaged.

So how does it work? The machine works through pulses of a laser. Each pulse is just a fraction of a second and removes multiple hairs at a time. A large area like the back may take an hour or so, while small areas like the upper lip will take just a few minutes. At the LAser Lounge Spa we utilize the GentleLASE 755 laser from Candela. It utilizes Dynamic Cooling to ensure the safety and comfort of each patient

If you think laser hair removal is right for you, let’s take a look at the pros and cons of this process.

– Permanent hair loss after just a few sessions
– Relatively pain-free
– Accurate
– Quick procedure

– Not as efficient at treating lighter color hair as darker color (try electrolysis for lighter colors)
– Will require a few treatments

Those are really the only cons! Laser hair removal is the perfect option for those looking to permanently remove darker hairs on almost any body part. Stop by any of our four locations or give us a call at 239-728-1234 to see how we can get started!
