Shaving daily can be quite time consuming and irritating to the skin, and only yields great temporarily results usually lasting less than a few hours. Waxing is slightly more efficient and can result in smooth skin for several days or even weeks. However, the process can be incredibly painful—especially in sensitive areas like the bikini zone or large areas like the chest or back. More importantly, waxing requires hair to be at least a quarter of an inch in length prior to each treatment, which tends to lead to prolonged, undesirable periods of unsightly hair growth. While depilatory creams seem to be a more viable solution, to apply these odorous, smelly creams are tedious and messy. Results are at times subpar and short term, requiring repeated touch-ups. More recently, buffer pads, such as Smooth Away ®, have entered the market, claiming to be a painless, odorless, and convenient solution. However, it feels more like sandpaper, and does not remove all the hair that the product claims to do. Instead of your skin being left smooth, it’s dry and irritated.
Laser hair removal is a dream come true for those who wish to remove hair from any area of the body without the hassle and pain of daily or weekly treatments. Laser hair removal treatments offer the longest-lasting and most visually appealing results. Although no hair removal technique lasts forever, there is permanent hair reduction for this FDA-approved technology. The result of the treatment may last for several years. This could mean an entire summer without having to worry about shaving your legs!
