No Hair, Don’t Care: Here’s How You Could Benefit from Getting the Best Laser Hair Removal in Toronto
You’ve been wasting full days of your life on shaving your legs. Isn’t that silly?
We’re not exaggerating. The average woman will spend 72 days of her life shaving her legs, once you add all the time up.
That’s way, way too much if you ask us. Instead, why not opt for laser hair removal? It can’t get you back the time you’ve already lost, but it can save you those days in the future!
Learn other reasons you should invest in the procedure below.
1. It’s Cost Effective
The average women’s razor pack costs around fourteen dollars. At least, that’s what they were the last time we looked.
Given that you should change out your razors every two months or so, that’s about 300 razors in fifty years. Thankfully, after fifty, menopause takes over the hair removal for you.
But still, three hundred razors is a lot, and let’s say that $14 pack has four razors in it. By the end of those fifty years, you’ll have spent $1,050 on razors alone.
And that’s not calculating in shave cream or lotions to go along with it.
Laser hair removal is much more cost effective. Over the long run, it’ll save you both time and money. Plus – you won’t have to wipe little hairs out of the corner or your shower anymore.
That may be worth it all on its own!
2. No Ingrown Hairs
When you do shave, you need to use a high-quality razor and shave cream to avoid bumps and ingrown hairs. But you can’t prevent all of them. Unsightly and painful ingrown hairs happen to the best of us.
And not to scare you, but you shouldn’t ever dig or pop them yourself. If they’re small, just exfoliate the area and put some cream on the bump.
This woman tried to remove an ingrown hair on her own and almost died from a staph infection.
That won’t happen with laser hair removal. While your legs may be a little irritated or itchy after your treatments, there won’t be ingrown hairs.
And any discomfort is temporary, only lasting a few hours. If you want to avoid ingrown hairs until menopause takes over, look into laser hair removal.
3. It’s Versatile
Laser hair removal is for anyone – any adult who has hair in an unwanted place.
Men come to us to remove chest hair, or even have treatments done on their neck. Shaving your neck is hard, angle wise, and results in many cuts and nicks.
Women come to us mostly for legs, but for the rest of their body too.
What can you get laser hair removal on?
Your legs, your back, your neck, your underarms, your arms, and your chest.
That’s a lot of places you no longer have to shave! Imagine all the time you’ll save over the years with just a few treatments.
4. It’s Fast
While laser hair removal requires a few treatments for permanent results, it’s nothing like waiting a month between waxes. When you wax an area of your body, you have to wait for hair to be a certain length before it can get waxed again.
The hair has to be long enough that the wax can grab it, which makes sense.
But you don’t have to worry about that with laser hair removal. You can schedule all your sessions in the time it takes to grow back enough hair to get a follow-up wax.
And it’s less painful (for most people). Our laser is quick and doesn’t involve pouring and ripping hot wax off your skin.
5. It’s Not Painful
When you go for your laser hair removal session, you may be worried about the pain. Let us calm your fears. Most areas are painless or just feel like a flash of mild-heat.
The more sensitive areas can feel like getting snapped with a rubber band, from not very far away. Think a 2 (max) out of the 10 digit pain scale.
Most people describe the sensation as mild discomfort and compare the feeling to a prick or prickle.
However, we can’t promise you’ll feel nothing. Each person has a remarkably different pain tolerance and some clients feel absolutely nothing while others are uncomfortable.
If you are experiencing pain/discomfort, let your technician know. There may be things they can do to make you feel more at ease.
6. It Has Minimal Side Effects
Let’s talk about the side effects of shaving. There are the ingrown hairs, which we’ve already talked about. But there are also razor bumps, dry skin, and the potential for nicks.
To add to that list, it’s expensive and time-consuming. Not technically side effects, but relevant to the argument all the same.
Laser hair removal has none of those symptoms, save for mild itching (which can be solved with lotion or cremes).
And that itching will go away within hours (usually), not days like it takes for razor bumps or burns to heal.
7. It Gives Good, Permanent Results
Imagine if shaving was permanent. That’d be nice, right? But it’s not. A well-shaved leg stays smooth for maybe a full day before those pricklies pop back up.
Laser hair treatment is permanent for most people, as long as they complete the right number of sessions.
