Of all the cosmetic treatments available in the UK today, none generate more discussion and interest than laser hair removal. Why? It’s simple really – everyone has hair somewhere on his or her body that they’d like to get rid of permanently. And, as laser hair removal is now more affordable than it has ever been, it’s within reach of more people than ever before.
Here’s a quick look as three of the most commonly asked questions on the subject of laser hair removal:
1 – Is it painful?
Laser hair removal is not painful. Yes, it can be a little uncomfortable and, yes, there may be some slight tenderness following the treatment, but you simply cannot compare laser treatment to the process of dragging a razor over your skin. And, when compared to waxing, there is no comparison!
2 – How long does it last?
One of the best things about laser hair removal is that after just a couple of treatments, the results can last for life. The idea is to get rid of the cause of the hair at the root, as opposed to simply chopping the exposed portion of the hair over and over and over again.
3 – Does it cost a lot?
It’s normal to be concerned about the cost of laser hair removal, but consider this. When you add up the cost of the razors, foams, and general shaving accessories you’ll use over the course of a lifetime, chances are you’ll end up spending infinitely more than you will on laser hair removal. So, while there is a larger up front cost, savings in money, not to count hassle, will add up over time.
