Constantly having to shave unwanted body hair can feel like more of a chore than an act of self-care or personal hygiene, but laser hair reduction can take all of that away. Laser hair reduction is the process of removing hair by pulses of laser lights, and has quickly become a popular solution to the problem of unwanted hair growth. At Foothills Med Spa, we are experts when it comes to these procedures and we wanted to share some of the key benefits to give you an idea of why so many people are switching from razors to lasers!

Pauses Hair Growth

One of the main reasons individuals get laser hair treatments is because of how effective they are. With a traditional razor, your hair grows back almost instantaneously because you aren’t shaving off the full hair follicle, just the hair that is showing through the skin.
Your hair goes through 4 phases of growth: the anagen, catagen, telogen, and exogen. Anagen, the growing phase, is the target for laser hair treatments as the lasers go beneath the skin to the root of the hair. Because you have hairs going through different phases at different times, multiple laser sessions are needed in order to effectively get rid of all of the hair at the anagen phase. However, once you have completed all of your sessions, you may not see any hair growth for a few years!

Pain-Free Treatments

Another compelling reason why laser hair treatment is so popular is because of its pain-free procedures. Many sources state that clients describe laser hair reduction as a pinch or a snap of a rubber band, which is far less painful than waxing. Waxing involves ripping off a glued piece of tape to your body, but laser hair treatment is no more painful than a pinch!

No Ingrown Hairs

If you are prone to ingrown hairs and need a solution, laser hair reduction is your answer. Ingrown hairs are caused by shaved hairs growing or curling back into your body, which can be very common when using an average razor. With laser hair treatment however, the rays destroy hair at the hair follicle which burns away any chance of regrowth. This affordable and long term solution is perfect for those who deal with constant shaving and ingrown hair problems.
