5 reasons to choose laser hair removal

5 benefits of laser hair removal

Why should i choose laser hair removal? We're sure you've asked yourself this question a few times, especially if you were intrigued enough to take a look at this article!

Well, if you're the kind of person who finds shaving, waxing or tweezing rather annoying when it comes to the removal of unwanted hair, then laser hair removal is likely to be the answer to all of your problems!

At our bespoke Allure Aesthetics Ltd skin care clinic in Abergavenny, South Wales, we use the finest laser hair removal machinery available, in the form of the Cynosure Elite+ Aesthetics Workstation. Laser hair removal is up there with the likes of botox and dermal fillers in terms of popularity, with both women and men alike opting for the procedure due to the fantastic results that are achieved.

It's all well and good understanding that we use cutting edge technology to perform laser hair removal procedures on our clients, and it's just as great to hear that the hairless results that can be achieved are a godsend to so many people across the world, but what exactly are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Let's take a look:

1. Laser hair removal treatments are quick

A fraction of a second is all that it takes for the pulse of the laser hair removal machine to target multiple hairs at the same time. The larger spot size that is treated with the Cynosure Elite+ laser means that we can target areas of the skin that are roughly the same size as a 10 pence piece, every single second! Smaller areas of the face, such as the upper lip, can be treated in less than 10 minutes. A full-bikini line or underarm also takes around 10 minutes to treat, and larger areas of the body, like the back or the legs will typically take around 30 minutes to treat. The majority of patients see permanent hair loss after an average of 8 laser hair removal sessions, meaning you can throw away the shaving cream and shaving blades for good, following just a few hours worth of treatment!

2. Get rid of ingrown hairs

We would all love to say goodbye to those pesky ingrown hairs, right? Luckily for us, laser hair removal treatments do not cause ingrown hairs. As a matter of fact, laser hair removal is often used as a way in which to treat ingrown hairs. Therefore, if you're someone who tends to be prone to ingrown hairs or annoying, painful razor burn, then the laser hair removal procedure is likely to be the perfect remedy for you. The laser hair removal treatment kills the hair follicle, preventing new hairs from growing, and thus, preventing ingrown hairs. Skin rashes on sensitive skin, and the dreaded experience of skin irritation can also be waved away for good with just a few laser hair removal treatments, so for these reasons alone, the procedure is well worth considering.

3. You will save plenty of money in the long run

First and foremost, you will save time, which is the real asset in life! You'll save all of that time you currently spend shaving, waxing and plucking. You'll also save the time it takes to purchase all of those shaving creams and blades, and the never-ending trips to the waxing salon! But how about the cash you'll be saving by no longer making all of those purchases? Over a lifetime, it sure does add up! The results of laser hair removal are far superior to waxing, and though it can appear costly in comparison at first, over a longer period of time it's a no-brainer. Women spend an average of £23,000 on waxing away unwanted hair in their lifetime, while the average cost of shaving for women tops £6,500, according to recent research.

4. Laser hair removal is safe and effective

We have already touched on how effective laser hair removal procedures can be, due to how precise the lasers are, and the fact that the energy goes into targeting and destroying the hair follicle, but it's also worth knowing that they are also incredibly safe. Laser hair removal equipment has been tried and tested over the past two decades, and the improvements that have been made during that time is phenomenal. The research and extensive testing can give you peace of mind, with the knowledge that the technology is 100% safe. The important thing is to ensure that you choose a reputable and trustworthy clinic and independent nurse prescriber that makes use of the latest technology. This way, you can be sure that your results are of the highest quality without taking any risks. This is why we use the best equipment available on the market here at Allure Aesthetics Ltd in Abergavenny, and our laser hair removal treatment, along with our other wide range of skin care treatments, is carried out by our highly experienced independent nurse prescriber.

5. Laser hair removal works on smooth skin, so no need to wait!

Unlike waxing treatments, laser hair removal can be used on hair that has already been shaved. This is excellent news for us ladies and gents, because we don't have to struggle through any annoying itchy periods of hair regrowth during the laser hair removal treatments. You can shave as much as your heart desires between treatments, until of course the laser eventually zaps them away for good! So, if you're at all embarrassed about your unwanted hair, or having to grow it out between waxing treatments, then it's becoming even more clear that laser hair removal really does need to be your treatment of choice!

At our bespoke specialist skin care clinic in Abergavenny, South Wales, we offer a wide range of laser hair removal treatment packages using the highest grade equipment possible. Our independent nurse prescriber has the experience and expertise to ensure you receive the best quality results possible.
