Why a Hair Removal Treatment Is Just What You Need This Spring

Spring might seem far away, but it’s never too early to start preparing. If body hair is a concern of yours as we move toward spring, here are a few reasons why now is the perfect time to invest in laser hair removal.


Benefits of Hair Removal Treatment



Is there anything more annoying than getting out of the shower just to find that you’ve missed a whole patch of leg hair while shaving? Laser hair removal eliminates that issue for you. This treatment uses the same type of equipment that is used for laser stretch mark removal. In other words, precision is absolutely key for laser hair removal. During your session, every hair follicle will be targeted, which means that you won’t be walking out of your appointment with patches of leg hair that the laser missed. A disposable razor just doesn’t stand up to the kind of precision that laser hair removal offers.


If you’ve shaved with a disposable razor before, you’re undoubtedly aware of just how time-consuming that process can be. Not only that, but all that time spent shaving can often leave you with a cry skin rash if you’re not careful. If you have a lot of body hair that you want to remove, it can feel like you spend an hour every other day just to keep it manageable. Rather than waste your time with a disposable razor, laser hair removal is a much better option. While it does usually take multiple treatments to see more permanent hair loss, it’s certainly a big improvement from spending hours in the shower every week with only a tiny razor to help you. Laser hair removal can offer a more efficient solution to your body hair removal woes. The results will last much longer, too. Even waxing takes more time and boasts lower-quality results.

Minimal Skin Irritation

Whether you’ve spent a lifetime shaving with disposable razors or you’ve invested money in waxing, skin irritation is typically accepted as a very real part of body hair removal. Both shaving and waxing have likely left a rash on legs or underarms for you in the past. If you’re sick of consistent skin irritation as a result of body hair removal, a laser hair removal session might be the answer you’re looking for. Laser treatments minimize skin irritation so you’re not walking away with ingrown hairs or serious dry skin. That said, it’s still important to consult with your dermatologist if you have more sensitive skin. When that’s the case, you may experience more redness and irritation than the typical laser hair removal patient. But aside from any known skin sensitivity issues, laser hair removal is generally one of the least irritating methods of body hair removal.


Have you ever thought about just how much money you’ve thrown at hair removal solutions like disposable razors and waxing? Laser hair removal might seem like a big up-front investment, but when permanent hair loss is the result you’re likely saving more money than you know. Adding up the cost of disposable razors, waxing sessions, and all of the creams you’ve purchased to soothe the accompanying skin irritation will likely be a bigger number than you want it to be. You just might wonder why you didn’t consider laser hair removal as an option sooner.

Laser hair removal is the perfect treatment to invest in this spring. If you’re ready for your first session or you have more questions, book your consultation with North Pacific Dermatology today.
