Laser hair removal seems daunting if you’ve never had it done before. Trust us, we’ve all been there. That terrifying, “how much is it going to hurt?” question pops into your head a million times, while the other half is worrying if your hair is going to grow in thicker and worse than before. While there are plenty of truths out there about laser hair removal, we’ll let you know a few that you may never have even heard of.
Whether you first heard of laser hair removal in the 90’s, or you’re just hearing about it now, let’s preface this by saying: laser hair removal isn’t that expensive! Back in the day, one small patch could cost you two months salary; however, it’s not like that at all anymore. Now, you can have an entire treatment done for as little as $60! That’s quite the improvement.
If you’re someone that wants to make sure the hair truly never grows back, laser hair removal may be the route for you. If you think it’s too expensive, the fact that your hair will never grow back may help you come to a decision on the cost.
The pain tolerance of the average person is how this next one is based off, but from personal experience and the general opinion – waxing is definitely more painful. The average comparison percentage is around 50%, so if you think waxing is okay, you’ll definitely have no problem with laser hair removal! A wavelength of light is used to detect the follicles of hair, and there’s nothing invasive – although it may sometimes feel like it to those who have super low pain tolerance.
Did you know that laser hair removal takes only about 10 minutes total? Depending on how much you book, it generally doesn’t go much higher than this for initial sessions. If you’re getting both legs fully done, it may take a bit longer, but removals tend to have short appointments.
The cost of laser hair removal directly correlates with how popular the practice is. Because of this, there are that many places doing it, and they’re all trying to beat prices. This means that finding somewhere that will reliably laser your hair off is easy as pie!
Like many beauty treatments, laser hair removal doesn’t always work 100% for everyone. Depending on your hair follicles, and the detection (if it’s easy or not), some may yield better results. If this is the case, you can always talk to your specialist on making another appointment.
