Summer is right around the corner and with warmer weather comes shorter sleeves and swimsuit season. While many people are thrilled to trade in their coats and sweaters for shorts and sundresses, those with unwanted body hair may be more hesitant. Conventional treatments for removing body hair such as shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams provide temporary solutions but are inconvenient, messy and often irritating to the skin. Fortunately, our laser hair reduction can help you reduce or even eliminate unwanted hair with just a few treatments.
More Permanent Results
One of the many advantages of laser hair removal, as opposed to waxing or shaving, is that it offers permanent hair reduction over time. With shaving, hair tends to grow back within a matter of days and waxing usually produces results that last for only a few weeks. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, laser hair reduction typically requires multiple sessions for permanent hair removal, but results are often visible after just one treatment.
People may be held back from laser hair reduction due to fear of pain. Compared to wicked razor burn and red, irritated skin as a result of waxing, shaving or tweezing, a laser hair reduction treatment is a walk in the park. Many people who undergo laser hair reduction compare the sensation to rubber bands snapping against the skin. In addition, Monarch uses the Coherent LightSheer laser which features a cooling tip that is placed directly against the skin to minimize patient discomfort.
The overall cost of laser hair reduction is significantly less than what you could spend on wax treatments, shaving supplies and other body hair removal products over the course of your life. According to Harper’s Bazaar, for a bikini wax alone is about $35. If you begin waxing at age 21 and get one wax treatment every three months until you turn 55, you will spend $4,900 waxing your bikini line. Chances are, you'll still be hitting the pool or beach at 65 and 70, so the actual lifetime cost is likely to be more than that.
