Today, hair, both on the face and the rest of our body is crucial in aesthetic terms and dramatically influences our appearance.  


Shaving is one of the things that everyone needs to do, and people want to do it perfectly. However, there is no official instruction manual, so the task becomes something learned with the pass of life.  


Judging by the failed shaving styles or the skin with cut marks, it seems that it is a somewhat complex mission and a risk if you make any error. Some adverse effects of shaving are a rash, ingrown hairs, or uneven hair growth.  


On the other hand, waxing has been one of the traditional methods of removing hair. It continues to be widely accepted for areas such as the groin and armpits, where cold waxing and depilatory creams often do not provide clean finishes.  


However, waxing has its drawbacks, the more notable, the thicker the hair or, the more delicate the skin.  



The solution is laser hair removal 


According to the Mayo Clinic, Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a focused beam of light to remove unwanted hair.  


During the laser hair removal process, you should know that a laser generates light absorbed later by the melanin in the hair. Light energy is converted into heat, damaging the tube-like sacs within the skin hair follicles that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.  


Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth for long periods, it generally does not produce permanent hair removal. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are required for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments may also be needed. Laser hair removal is most effective for people with fair skin and dark hair, but it can work well on all skin types.  


Laser hair removal is the safest and most effective method to remove unwanted hair, saving all the time and cost of traditional hair removal.   


What is laser hair removal, and what does it do?  


Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that removes or delays hair growth in any area of the body. It uses a laser with precision that attacks the hair follicles, which are the root of the hair, without affecting the surrounding areas. The effect is that future hair growth is permanently inhibited or delayed for considerable amounts of time.  


Many myths have arisen around laser hair removal, such as that it is a painful procedure, which is false. Laser hair removal has proven to be one of the most tolerable methods among thousands of patients and with very mild side effects. Only some patients have transient redness of the skin. A slight sensation of heat is felt during the treatment, which is minimal in the room with cold air.  


Advantages of laser hair removal  


There are many advantages related to the laser hair removal procedure. The benefits of laser hair removal compared to other hair removal methods are:  



The laser reaches every part, even the most difficult to access, without affecting its areas.  



The sessions are of short duration since the laser acts in seconds on a lot of hairs simultaneously.  


Long-term results 

After treatment, the benefits can last for many months and even years.  



Unlike traditional methods such as shaving and waxing, this is done without pain, thanks to using a cooling system in our laser hair removal treatment.
