Considering Laser Hair Removal? Here are Five Things You Might Not Know About It

In recent years, Laser Hair Removal has established itself as one of the world's favorite beauty treatments. Each year, more than 1.5 million people walk through the doors of their local clinic to have their body hair removed by a state of the art laser. A huge number, but one that continues to grow.

If you're thinking of trying out laser Hair Removal, you're unlikely to be disappointed with the results. Still, why not continue reading this list of 5 things you might now know about the procedure before taking the plunge?

1. There May be Side Effects

Lasers are often thought of as being tools used to heal patients. They're renowned for improving eyesight, softening the skin, and healing wounds. But lasers, unfortunately, aren't perfect. While most people will experience nothing but positive things from a session of Laser Hair removal, a few may notice they've developed one or two minor side effects. If you're one of the people who does develop side effects, you can expect to notice red patches on your skin, and even bouts of itchiness.

As with any medical or cosmetic procedure, it's worth weighing up the positives and negatives before booking.

2.  Treatments Usually Last About an Hour

Many people are surprised to learn that laser hair removal can be finished in roughly the same amount of time it takes to watch a TV show. As the procedure is associated with everything cosmetic, it's easy to make the mistake of believing laser hair removal is something that will take hours.

When you have your body hair removed, time isn't something you have to worry about. There's no fussing around with gowns or medication. If you're worried that means treatment won't be as effective as waxing, don't be. You'll be enjoying the feeling of having smooth, hairless skin in no time.

3. Laser Hair Removal Isn't That Painful

Hair removal has always been synonymous with pain. From sharp razor blades to waxing strips, there hasn't ever been a pain-free way of doing it – at least until now.

While laser hair removal procedures aren't completely devoid of pain, they are much more tolerable compared to other grooming methods. At worst, you're likely to feel warmness in the area being treated. If your skin is sensitive, this warmness might turn into a gentle twitch. That's about it really. There won't be any screaming moments like there would be if you were waxing.

4. You Don't Need to be Hairy

When laser hair removal first hit the market, men and women would enter their local clinic looking a lot like wild bears. The belief was the laser needed something to "grab on to" and wouldn't be able to do its job if there was little hair on the body.

Although those who have had treatment previously know they don't need to grow their hair out, those new to it might not know. If you have laser hair removal treatment booked, don't worry about how hairy you are. As the laser penetrates deep into the surface of the skin, results will be great either way.

5.  Different Lasers Work for Different People

There are actually many different types of lasers out there, and each one works in a different way. As your skin is unique to you, the laser that works for one person may not be quite right for you. This means you may need to experiment with a few different types of laser before finding the perfect one. As each clinic will likely carry a different type of laser, this really isn't too difficult to do.

If you find your first experience with laser treatment isn't what you'd hoped, it's probably because the laser wasn't ideal for you. Simply try a different one next time, and you'll be more likely to love the results.
