Until recently, a normal/average/regular Joe, (unless he was a bodybuilder, a model or a swimmer), more often than not, would simply allow the hair to grow on the different areas of his body as and in the amount the nature intended. Currently, this tendency is changing. Men are frequently using hair removal from various body parts. In general, they decide to get rid of hair from armpit, back or chest area. Maintaining smooth body makes it easy to avoid the risk of unsightly armpit stains or hair showing out from between the buttons of a business shirt. In more private context, hair removal allows to properly expose a tattoo, highlight the shape of the muscles or simply underline the skin tone. A smooth body has a lot of advantages.
There are at least 5 reasons why laser hair removal treatment is the best option.
Each laser pulse is emitted only for several milliseconds. Thanks to this, the whole procedure is relatively short. Removing hair from small areas, such as neck, takes less than 10 minutes. In case of larger areas, such as back and torso, the procedure usually takes around 20 to 30 minutes. Studies show that 90% of men shave at least 20,000 times during their life time! Taking that into account, try to calculate how much time you waste on shaving your face, back or chest throughout your entire life. Got it? Exactly! Laser hair removal can allow you to spend a good few thousand hours on far better things, completely unrelated to skin care. In addition, in contrast to waxing, shaving and hair removal creams, the laser treatment does not make your body feel sticky or oily as during laser hair removal we do not use substances, which are sometimes difficult to quickly get rid of.
During epilation procedure, the beam of light is directed exactly towards the hair follicle. This eliminates the risk of injuring the surrounding skin. During the treatment session, there is no risk of developing nicks or scratches on the skin, what is often the case of ordinary hair removal with the use of razors. You also avoid skin irritation, which can occur when removing hair with various types of hair removal creams. The precision of laser hair removal is one of its main advantages, as it offers better control over which hair will be removed. You do not have to get rid of all of them. You can remove hair form selected areas, what in turn will allow you to achieve specific desired effect – for example, a cleaner neckline or no hair under the arms. The use of the laser blocks the flow of blood to the hair follicles, so the hair falls out of the root. Thanks to this, you can remove ingrowing hair, which may be the unwanted side effect of waxing or shaving.
3. Durability/Long-lasting Effects
Some hair removal methods do not prevent the hair from growing back, after a period of time. Once the new hair grows back, it is thicker than the hair you got rid of using a razor or a cream. Waxing makes hair follicles weaker, however with this method you risk to pull out only a part of the hair – without the root. In addition, this method usually requires repetitive sessions, which should take place about once a month, in order to maintain the desired effect. And let’s not forget, waxing is also quite painful. A well-performed laser hair removal treatment can prevent the regrowth of hair for up to several years.
Traditional lasers are safe and effective only in case of people with lighter skin complexion and dark, thick hair.

This means that people with darker skin or lighter hair colour have more and more places available to them, where they can safely and effectively undergo a laser hair removal treatment.

These can be easily determined during the initial consultation with the Laser therapist, which takes place before commencing the treatment. Thanks to this you will learn what kind of effect you can achieve from laser hair removal and check if it matches your expectations.
Although the price of the initial series of treatments may seem higher than the costs of traditional hair removal methods, such as waxing and shaving, in the end laser turns out the most cost effective method in the long run. This results mainly for the low cost of maintaining the effects after the initial series of treatments. At the beginning, it is worth to undergo about 6-10 treatments every 5-7 weeks. As time goes by, treatment sessions should also be performed but less frequently and they often require less time per session compared to the sessions performed at the beginning of the hair removal journey. Although there are many ways to get rid of unwanted hair, in the light of modern technological advancements, laser hair removal seems to be the only one that makes sense. It not only eliminates the annoying problems, such as pain during the hair removal procedure or the itching and burning sensations which follows.
