3 Reasons To Consider Laser Hair Removal


Sometimes, routinely waxing or shaving to remove unwanted hair is no longer an option or you may have conditions that are exacerbated by these methods. Laser hair removal is the right option for some people with certain hair-removal or medical needs.

Long-Term Results

Although people will have different experiences with laser hair removal, most can achieve permanent results with consistent treatments. This can be a far superior result than other methods of hair removal, especially if your hair seems to come back quickly after shaving or waxing. Many people who choose a long-term solution to hair removal do so because of issues that can arise with other procedures, especially in sensitive areas. The pubic area and underarms can be among the most sensitive area, so waxing may be especially painful, and shaving can contribute to irritation that makes wearing underwear or using deodorant uncomfortable until it heals. These sensitive areas tend to have coarser hair which can increase the likelihood of difficult hair removal or irritation.


Some people tend to be predisposed to issues with hyperpigmentation in areas where they shave or wax, typically the underarms and bikini area. In most instances, people of color will find they are more likely to experience hyperpigmentation from even mild issues with irritation. Unfortunately, this can make the area look unsightly or like there is hair there even after a fresh shave or wax. Laser hair removal is ideal for people who experience hyperpigmentation. After several treatment sessions and the elimination of unwanted hair, you can begin focusing on improving the coloration of the area in question. Many of these areas will lighten over time once hair removal is no longer necessary and there is no more irritation to the skin. Other dermatological treatments can be used to help the hyperpigmented areas look similar to the surrounding skin if it does not improve over time.

Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is an autoimmune condition that generally occurs in areas that normally grow hair, such as the groin and underarms. This is an autoimmune disease that can manifest with frequent boils that eventually turn into tunnels and scar tissue under the skin. The scarring under the skin can further harbor infection and make it harder for doctors to perform an incision and drainage (I&D) to quickly reduce pain and address the underlying infection. Although laser hair removal will not stop the problem, it is a better option for people with HS, especially once they gain control over the problem with biologics. Since hair in the area may further contribute to inflammation, it is best to find a long-term removal option and minimize irritation with other hair removal methods.

Although long-term hair removal options are a personal choice, there are some situations where laser hair removal is the best option. Long-term hair removal can prevent or eliminate some of the problems associated with frequent irritation from other methods.

Turning Back the Clock

After my thirtieth birthday, I began to notice some unappealing signs of aging on my face. I started to see dark spots and fine lines. Because I wanted to turn back time, I researched non-invasive cosmetic procedures to help people look younger. I was immediately intrigued by microdermabrasion. I began getting microdermabrasion treatments regularly. After each treatment, my skin instantly looked smoother and more vibrant. Within a few weeks, the fine lines under my eyes and around my mouth became less noticeable. On this blog, I hope you will discover the most popular types of cosmetic treatments performed on patients today. Enjoy!
