Still Fighting Unwanted Hair: Why You Should Try Laser Hair Removal
How do razors and wax compare to laser hair removal? Turns out, they don’t.
Let’s talk about body hair: we have it, and we try to get rid of it. It’s a pain — literally and figuratively — to constantly manage. But which hair removal method is the right solution? Let’s compare common techniques and weigh the pain, cost, and longevity of each.
Shaving since puberty has helped us avoid painful nicks. But when they do happen, ouch. And to add insult to injury, results are temporary; hair comes back within a day or two. Plus, there are the added hassles of razor burn and ingrown hairs.
While the cost of shaving seems low, it’s more expensive than you’d think. The average person spends 39 hours a year shaving and about $3,800 on shaving essentials in a lifetime — too much for temporary results. Thinking about that wasted time and money makes us cringe.
Waxing is another temporary solution and the most painful method. It pulls hair from the root, creating longer-lasting results than shaving. But you have to endure regular waxing appointments to maintain results and let the hair grow out between appointments for it to work.
Hot wax can burn your skin and cause inflamed follicles, skin irritation, ingrown hairs, bacterial infections, and redness. Waxing also costs around $15,000 in a lifetime. All of this, again, for results that won’t last.
Laser Hair Removal Longevity
Laser hair removal has been around since the ‘90s, and while it’s been growing in popularity, we don’t know as much about it. So to give us the inside scoop, we asked the laser hair removal experts at Milan Laser Hair Removal to tell us more.
When performed correctly, laser hair removal is a permanent solution to unwanted hair. That’s because the laser destroys the hair follicles, preventing regrowth. Laser hair removal is also safe and effective for all skin tones and most hair colors, except white and peach-fuzz.
As for pain, laser hair removal is much less painful than waxing. Like the one Milan Laser uses, many lasers come with built-in comfort features to provide you with the most comfortable laser hair removal treatment possible. It’s often described as similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin.
While the cost of laser hair removal may seem higher, when you consider the lifetime cost of waxing and shaving, permanence, and time saved, it’s invaluable.
