On average, humans have a whopping five million hair follicles on their bodies — some we want to hold onto, while others we could do without. If you’re researching the best way to remove unwanted hair from your body, you might consider joining the laser hair-removal movement, which is expected to grow by more than 18% annually over the next seven years.
Recognizing the increasing popularity of laser hair removal, Dr. Madaiah Revana and the team here at Humble Cardiology Associates have equipped ourselves with advanced laser hair-removal technology.
Here, we explore three benefits of this approach to getting rid of unwanted body hair and why laser hair removal makes good sense.
1. Ditch the razors, wax, and tweezers
If you added up the amount of time, energy, and money you’ve spent on various hair-removal methods, the results would likely be surprising, and probably a little depressing.
The problem with these hair-removal methods is that they’re only removing hair at the shaft (shaving) or from the follicle (plucking and waxing). In both cases, it’s only a matter of time before the existing hair continues its growth or a new hair comes in.
With laser hair removal, we send pulses of light energy into the hair follicles to damage the structures in a way that prevents them from holding on to the hair and delays new growth by quite a bit.
This means you can ditch the razors and tweezers and cancel those pricey waxing appointments and spend your time and money on things that are far more exciting than hair removal.
2. It’s a more permanent solution for unwanted body hair
After your laser-removal treatments, the hair in those areas will fall out, and it won’t regrow for some time, if at all. The light energy we deliver disrupts the follicle’s ability to retain hair in the short term and can also permanently alter its ability to produce healthy hair moving forward.
As a result, your hair can regrow in your treatment areas, but it’s usually far finer and lighter, so some follow-up maintenance treatments can make quick work of this new hair. After this second round, there’s even less of a chance that the treated follicles will produce any hair of substance in the future.
3. We can remove hair almost anywhere
Laser hair removal is targeted and precise, which means we can use this approach for most of the problem areas on your body, including your:
- Bikini area
The only area where we don't use laser hair removal is around your eyes.
