If you want to be free of unwanted hair for good, here at New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in Weymouth, MA, we can help!
How Permanent Is Laser Hair Removal?
Once you get the amount of treatment session that is necessary to stop the cycle of hair regrowth, you may see that hair not coming back for years. After that, if you would notice that any unwanted hair is beginning to come back, you would simply need to have a touchup treatment session done to stop that hair regrowth cycle.
This is going to vary from person to person depending on how thick their unwanted hair is and a variety of other factors. While one person may notice their unwanted hair not coming back for many months after just one treatment, another person may notice that their unwanted hair is coming back after 4-6 months.
The main reason that people opt to have laser hair removal is to get rid of any unwanted hair so that they can avoid waxing, plucking, shaving and using creams. But, there are actually more benefits than you may realize.
No More Razor Burn
Razor burn is an issue that plagues many people. It can leave skin looking bumpy and it can cause a lot of itching and irritation. After having this type of treatment, razor burn will be a thing of the past! Many people find that not having to shave the areas where their unwanted hair is one of the biggest perks of this type of treatment.
No More Skin Irritation
Waxing can cause skin irritation in different ways than shaving can but the results are no less annoying. Hair removal creams can also cause irritation that can last for days! With this type of treatment, you will no longer have to worry about any skin irritation! Your skin will be both smooth and clear!
Many people notice after having this treatment that their skin is smooth and it remains smooth. They no longer have to deal with stubble when the hair begins to come back in, razor burn, or skin irritation. Therefore, their skin is overall smoother and they have fewer concerns.
Saving Time and Money
You may not realize how much time and money you are actually spending on dealing with unwanted hair.
