The Pros and Cons of Laser Hair Removal

There are pros and cons to everything in life-including laser hair removal. When we are educated, we tend to make better decisions.  Therefore, it is important to educate yourself about the options when it comes to laser hair removal. Gone are the days of shaving, razor burns, 5 o’clock shadows, depilatory creams that stink, waxing, sugaring, and any other painful torture you have had to endure. There are long lasting options such as electrolysis, but who has the time to sit through a time-consuming session where a super fine needle is inserted into each individual hair follicle to send an electric current that kills the hair follicle. Is it painful? Yes. Is it time consuming? Very much so. 

Laser hair removal is the popular semi-permanent hair removal option that damages the hair follicle and minimizes hair growth. The laser is made to specifically target pigment in hair follicles and will burn the hair follicle down to the root. 

What are the Pros of Laser Hair Removal? 

  • Laser hair removal drastically reduced hair growth to the point you can stop shaving all together. 
  • Laser hair removal can be performed anywhere on the body including body, back, face, underarms, legs, bikini, stomach, etc. There is no limit of the places where laser hair removal can be safely performed 
  • The pain level associated with laser hair removal is less than the pain induced by shaving or waxing. The pain also gets progressively decreases as treatments continue and the hair becomes finer 
  • Laser hair removal helps to reduce those embarrassing and unsightly features you wish not to speak of. Some patients are amazed that the 5’o clock shadow they used to have under their arms disappears with the reduction of hair post laser hair removal treatments. 

What are the Cons of Laser Hair Removal? 

  • Some sessions may last only a few minutes, but the process can be longer depending on the area being treated as well as the hair quality. Multiple treatments are often needed, and it is generally the recommended practice to wait six weeks between treatments. 
  • It can be pricey, but if you add up how much you have spent on razors or waxing only to be disappointed with the results you can consider the value of the investment of laser hair removal 

What is the Cost? 

The cost of treatments will vary based on the area of the body as well as the number of treatments needed. Victory MedSpa has a price list to share, but in order to get the best prices it is always best to set up a complementary consultation with the Victory MedSpa team. Our team can properly assess the areas you desire to be treated and can inform you about any promotional specials you may benefit from.
