Shaving is a dreaded part of most people’s daily routines. Many people feel self-conscious because they have unsightly hair on their face, arms, back or abdomen. Thanks to innovations in technology, laser hair removal is more effective, can be done with minimal discomfort and can save you time and money in the long run.
We live in a very fast-paced world. People lead very busy lives where every minute counts. Unfortunately, shaving requires use of our precious time. If you shave 10 minutes daily, and take one day off a week, you are spending 1 hour each week shaving. This constitutes to 52 hours of shaving a year – over 2 days of shaving! That’s a lot time that you can never get back. Going to the spa to get waxing done every month is time consuming as well. Trying to find time to get it done can be stressful too. If you don’t get back to the spa in time, you will have unsightly regrowth. Not only does shaving and waxing take time, but it can also cause skin irritations which can be painful or cause you to be self-conscious. However, laser hair removal is non-ablative and will not harm your skin. So how does it work?
In order to achieve long lasting or permanent hair removal, the hair follicles from which individual hairs grow must be destroyed. This can be accomplished through revolutionary new technology called Selective Waveband Technology (SWT). The SWT uses controlled pulses of light to ensure the proper wavelength and energy is used to destroy the hair follicle without damaging the surface of the skin. Once the hair follicle is destroyed it will prevent future hair growth.
Typically, 70% of hair will be removed with just one procedure. However, because the procedure is only effective on growing hairs, hair in the resting stage (telogen stage) will not respond to the treatment. Therefore, several treatments may be necessary in order to destroy all of the hair follicles in the treatment area. Once destroyed, your razor can be retired for 13 years or more. Statistics have shown that hair may return in 13 years or, as in some cases, the results may be permanent.
In addition to saving time, laser hair removal can save you significant money. Allow me to demonstrate.
