Laser hair removal is cost-effective
Laser hair removal is an excellent alternative to waxing, tweezing, and shaving, as it effectively destroys hair follicles, resulting in hair reduction. The permanence of laser hair removal makes it overall cost-effective and less time-consuming.
It doesn’t happen all at once
When undergoing laser hair removal, it is important to remember that it does not happen all at once. The process requires several sessions, which are spaced out with six to eight weeks in between each session. Hair grows in cycles of weeks and all the hairs do not grow in the same cycle; so while some hairs are dark and mature and ready to be lasered away, others are dormant and not ready to be removed. Once you complete your sessions, it’s usually necessary to have a future touch-up sessions as well.
If you start your treatments during the colder months, you’ll get through most of them while it’s still too cold to wear shorts, bathing suits, and shorter skirts. When summer finally does come around, you’ll be prepared to break out your more revealing clothing. If there happen to be any areas of noticeable hair, you can shave them away.
Pain and recovery after treatments
Levels of discomfort vary on areas being treated, texture of hair, as well as skin type. Patients with coarse and darker hair can experience more discomfort. After treatments, hair becomes thinner resulting in more comfortable treatments. We also use a cooling device that makes treatments more comfortable. Mild erythema (redness) and follicular adenoma (swelling around the hair follicle) is something patients tend to experience after treatments. This typically only lasts a few hours, resulting in no downtime.
Aesthetica wants to make sure laser hair removal is affordable for everyone, that’s why we offer a laser removal membership plan. These plans range from 18 to 24 months and start at $23 per month. As with all of Aesthetica’s membership plans, this plan is hassle free and there are no long-term commitments required.
