To get rid of unwanted hair, many different options have been used over the years. While many of them are effective and offer good results, these are often temporary solutions that also carry certain risks with them. Perhaps the best option in this regard is laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal Dubai is a big hit and more and more people are opting for it. Like all treatments, there are certain advantages as well as disadvantages that are associated with it. We shall take a closer look into both of them.
There are plenty of advantages on offer by laser hair removal.
It is a permanent solution and once the treatment is completed, hair stop growing in the treated area. Other options such as waxing and shaving only offer temporary solutions and hair grow back in a couple of weeks’ time at the most. Afterwards, the process needs to be repeated.
The risks associated with laser hair removal are minimal since it is a noninvasive procedure. There is no risk of infections or ingrown hair which are very much present in most other options.
The process is more or less pain free. Cooling gel may be applied prior to the laser treatment in order to reduce any sensation of discomfort. There is no pouring of hot wax or pulling the hair out involved like that in waxing.
Once the treatment has been completed, the person can enjoy a smooth skin free from any hair. It is a great feeling that can give a lot of self-confidence.
There are very few disadvantages associated with laser hair removal.
Multiple sessions are needed in order to get complete hair removal done. Generally six to seven sessions are enough but the exact number depends on the given person’s hair condition.
Effects on Lighter Shade Hair
The laser treatment is usually not effective on the lighter shades of hair. The general rule of thumb is that the hair to be removed should be darker than the color of the skin of the person being treated. Progress is being made and some lasers are able to get rid of lighter hair as well.
Is cost an actual disadvantage?
People are often worried about the cost of the procedure being high. However, one has to look past the face value. Since a few treatment sessions get rid of the unwanted hair, future visits are generally not needed. Some touch up work once a year may be required. Waxing and shaving on the other hand have to be repeated constantly and therefore, their small cost can add up big time in the longer run.
