It’s summer, and we are all thinking the same thing: time to go all out on our depilatory routines. The more common approach to hair removal is shaving, but it becomes tiresome and, at times, painful. In 2016, over one million people tossed out their razors and opted for laser hair removal because of the striking advantages over shaving.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal has a higher initial cost than buying razors and shaving cream, but it is a smart investment. After five to eight sessions, hair is greatly reduced. One maintenance treatment may be necessary every one to two years, and this gives you invaluable freedom to enjoy your results without worrying about consistent upkeep.
- Cost-effective in the long run
- Does not damage the skin
- Can be used to treat a variety of problem areas
- Saves time
- Higher upfront cost
- Does not work on blonde or grey hair
- Treatments can be somewhat uncomfortable
Shaving is the tried and true method of hair removal because it’s readily available. Razors and other shaving products can be purchased almost anywhere, and they can be used in the comfort of your own home; however, it comes with its own set of drawbacks.
- Can be done at home
- Quick regrowth of hair
- May result in razor burn
- Can lead to ingrown hairs
