Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Compared to Traditional Methods

Laser hair removal utilizes low-level lasers to target hair follicles and impede their ability to regrow hair, resulting in far more permanent and effective results when compared to other forms of hair removal. Here are some benefits of opting for laser hair removal over waxing.

Laser hair removal is an innovative and popular method for getting rid of any unwanted hair on the body. It involves using a concentrated beam of light (laser light) to destroy hair follicles and give you long-lasting results. Laser hair removal is suitable for men and women and can be used on most areas of the body including arms, legs, face, abdomen, and the bikini area. 

If you are considering laser hair removal, here are some key facts you should know: 

  • Patients with dark hair and light skin are ideal candidates for this procedure
  • Before undergoing laser hair removal, you must not have any wounds, infections, or skin rashes in the treatment area
  • Most people typically require 4-6 treatments spaced 3-6 weeks apart for ideal results
  • Most patients see up to an 80 per cent reduction in hair growth

It’s important to note that laser hair removal is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. An in-depth consultation with your skin care specialist can determine if you are the right candidate for this procedure and which laser will work best for your skin and hair type.

Benefits of Opting for Laser Hair Removal Over Traditional Methods 

Whether you shave or wax, regularly removing unwanted body hair can be very frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive. Luckily there is an alternative solution: laser hair removal. At our Kelowna skin care centre, we offer an advanced laser hair removal service that provides a significant and permanent reduction in hair growth. 

Here are some of the benefits of opting for laser hair removal over more traditional methods of hair removal: 

1. Long-Lasting and Incredible Results 

Once you have completed the required number of laser hair removal appointments, the hair follicles in the treatment area will be destroyed and will not return. A small percentage of people might see very minor hair regrowth, but the hair will be much less dense and coarse — and can be removed easily with some touch-up appointments. 

2. Say Goodbye to Pre-Growth Requirements 

With many traditional hair removal methods, such as waxing, you have to grow the hair in the treatment area to a certain length, allowing for effective removal. However, there is no need for this when you opt for laser hair removal. 

The lasers can target hair follicles regardless of their length and often do best when the area is shaved to begin with, which means you don’t have to endure the frustration of growing out your hair in advance in an area where you don’t want it. 



3. Lower Long-Term Costs 

Most people shy away from laser hair removal out of fear of high costs, and while one treatment might cost more than a single waxing appointment, the long-term costs aren’t comparable. You might go through hundreds of waxes in your lifetime if you want hair removed regularly from certain areas — but it only takes three to six laser treatments to be permanently hair free! 

This means that you won’t have to pay for numerous waxing appointments throughout the course of your life and the money you save in the long run can potentially add up to massive sums. 

4. Greater Comfort and Convenience 

Waxing and shaving can be painful, uncomfortable, and time-consuming. On the other hand, with laser hair removal, there is no irritation, razor burn, or discomfort, and you won’t be left with potentially painful ingrown hairs. 

Laser hair removal is quick and convenient. The treatments are straightforward and require no downtime, which means that you can return to your daily activities immediately after treatment.
