Having unwanted hair can be an embarrassing thing for many people; however the good news is that there are many solutions to help you deal with this uncomfortable situation. One recently-developed technology is laser hair removal, which utilizes laser technology to remove the hair. It is important that you educate yourself about laser hair removal and develop a good understanding of what it is about and how the process occurs. For those of you that may be thinking about getting it done, here are 3 benefits to it:

The results are permanent

This is one of the key benefits to getting this procedure done because in most cases, it is a one time process. For those that use shaving to remove hair, this is a key benefit, as you do not have to deal with stubble that keeps growing back and that you have to remove more and more frequently.

The process is less painful

We all know the pain and suffering that is endured by those that use wax to rip the hair out of the follicle. Tweezing does not offer any pain relief either. The process is generally quite painless, as the lasers are designed to target the hair follicle only and not the skin around the hairs. Most patients report feeling a warm, soothing sensation as their hairs are targeted by the laser.

The cost can vary depending on the location and size of the region, but it is important to think long-term when you are looking at the price tag. A great benefit of laser hair removal is that it saves you lots of time because once your package is completed, there is no need to tend to that area again with the exception of possible touch-ups over time. Think about how much time that can save you over the course of 5, 10 or 15 years.

Technological advances have really contributed to expanding this market and people from all over the world are now reaping the benefits of this procedure. A large percent of the patients are men, who can benefit by getting hair removed from their backs. Many male bodybuilders use the procedure to remove hair from the chest and shoulders too. As you can see, there are many advantages to laser hair removal and its popularity will continue to grow.

The clinic: Make sure that you go in for a free consultation to see if you are happy with the way the clinic looks and feels (clean, up-to-date and informative) and avoid being pressured by sales reps to sign up on the spot (often prevalent at chain clinics). It’s recommended to sample 3-4 places before committing. You will probably find that prices can vary as much as 100-200% (and some will have options of paying up front for a package of treatments, while others won’t). Make sure you feel that they showed more interest in how the treatment will work for you and your personal results instead of being more interested in how much you will be paying.

The laser technician: Make sure that the person treating you has extensive experience in hair removal and has knowledge of how to best kill the hair (Ask a lot of questions about this at a chain clinic as you might get a different tech every time you come for treatment. Chain clinics vary by location, so make sure you are comfortable with everyone there and they don’t have a high employee turnover if you do decide to go with it). Ask questions and make sure they answer them based on your research. If you are an informed consumer, you will be able to better judge whether what they’re saying is in your best interests or not. Keep in mind that whether a person treating you has an MD or not does not necessarily reflect their laser hair removal skills. Hair removal is not taught in medical schools, so what you should be looking for instead is specific knowledge of and experience in hair removal.

The laser: Make sure that the laser being used is best for your skin and hair type. Do not fall for “marketing hype”. Every laser can technically be used on any skin type, but you should be looking for one that will produce the most efficient results for YOU.

Price: Although your should be cautious of pricing as there are many facilities that are extremely overpriced, the price should not be your primary concern. Focus on results first! The important thing to remember is quality of service and results. You are better off paying a little extra to get the superior results than trying to conserve money and accepting poor results.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
