An Overview of the Benefits and Considerations of Laser Hair Removal

Last updated 7 years ago

As the summer season starts to set in, we all start thinking about swimsuit season and looking our best. For many, that means considering laser hair removal. Laser hair removal has many benefits, but it also has some limitations that many people don’t take into consideration. Looking your best this swimsuit season means understanding the benefits and considerations of laser hair removal.

  • Benefits
    Laser hair removal is a nearly permanent hair reduction technique that is highly effective. It has been available since the 1990s, with a long track record of being safe as well as effective. It is great for limiting ingrown hairs with a low potential for re-growth. Re-growth that does occur generally occurs lighter in color and less thick.
  • Considerations
    Laser hair removal works better for patients with lighter skin and darker hair. Because it works when pigment molecules in the hair follicle absorb laser energy, lighter pigmented hairs and darker pigmented skin causes the follicle to absorb the energy less effectively. Laser hair removal is also mildly uncomfortable, like a rubber band snapping against your skin.
  • What Does It Mean?
    Before undergoing laser hair removal, be sure to weigh the pros and cons carefully. Consult with a hair removal professional or your doctor and find out if laser hair removal is the best option for you. With some forethought and knowledge, you should be able to make the decision that you’re happiest with.
