Dealing with stubborn hair is a challenge that many people face, and when you feel as though your body is coated in excess hair, you probably spend a great deal of time trying to get rid of it. Laser treatments are an option for you. Laser hair removal can offer a more permanent solution to unwanted body hair with virtually no pain and no downtime or recovery.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Shaving
You probably don’t feel that shaving is too painful. It’s also easy to do, even if you have to shave more than once per day. However, think about the painful cuts that shaving can cause. These cuts can hurt for a while. Also, you can get razor burn on your skin. Not only does razor burn hurt, but it can become irritated by things like clothing or saltwater.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Waxing
Waxing your legs or another large part of your body can offer longer results than shaving, but can be extremely painful. Waxing does hurt because you are ripping hair off of your body, and that is particularly true when you are waxing your upper lip or other sensitive areas. Also, you generally need to do some tweezing in between waxes, which can lead to aggravation.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Tweezing
Tweezing is not considered an extremely painful form of hair removal, but it can be tedious. Even if a quick tweeze does not cause you pain, you can end up feeling it if you are working on a larger area. Furthermore, you may use tweezing in conjunction with another method. Therefore, you are pulling hairs out of parts of your skin that are already sensitive.
Laser Hair Removal vs. Depilatory Creams
You can also choose to use depilatory creams. These are the creams that you leave on your face or body for a specified period of time, and then you wipe the cream off to remove the hair. Sometimes, these creams don’t remove all of the hair, so you have to use a razor or tweezer on an area that is already sensitive. Also, these creams can burn you and leave red bumps.
