Laser hair removal is used to make your skin aesthetically pleasing by getting rid of unwanted hair. However, the benefits to laser hair removal are more than just skin deep. Removing embarrassing and undesirable hair can add confidence and other positive psychological effects.
Laser hair removal and its positive psychological effects
Doctors from Medscape Reference say getting rid of unwanted hair using laser hair removal can affect your overall well-being and outlook on life. A study reported to the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, done by Iranian researchers, shows that after laser hair removal women feel more confident and have a better outlook on life.
At the beginning of the study the researchers gave over 70 women an “Dermatology Life Quality Index” assessment. The Department of Dermatology at Cardiff University states that the “Dermatology Life Quality Index” test, or DLQI, is the “dermatology specific quality of life test”. In this study the test was used only on Iranian women. However, the DLQI test has been given in 32 countries and 55 languages. In addition the test has been defined in over 500 publications.This assessment has 10 questions and is used to measure quality of life with scores range from 0-30. Zero being that your skin has no effect on your quality life and 30 being it has immense effect.
Laser hair removal and the test results
After the women went through laser hair removal treatments, they retook the assessment and their scores changed from an average of 9.42 to a 3.12. Laser hair removal truly changed the way they felt about themselves and life.
