Laser hair removal is fast becoming the choice hair removal procedure of people seeking a hairless appearance, be it underarms, bikini line, or legs.
While it is not particularly new, as it has been in practice since 1996, a good number of people are yet to try it out because they have a number of unanswered questions about the procedure.
We will be answering the popular questions asked about this hair removal procedure in this piece.
1. Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
This is by far the most popular question asked, and it is understandably so, it contains the scary word – Laser.
However, Laser hair removal is a safe procedure
2. How Does It Work?
This hair removal procedure targets hair follicles under the skin using light-based energy. This reduces hair growth in the treated area. While it is super effective and longer-lasting than shaving, tweezing and waxing, a lot of its efficacy depends on the skill and experience of the laser operator.
3. Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
One thing is certain, this process does not hurt half as much as the next best hair removal procedure – waxing.
It is an overall bearable process
4. What Are The Side Effects?
Some normal side effects may occur after the process, including itching, pink skin, redness, and swelling around the treatment area or swelling of the follicles (follicular edema). These side effects rarely last more than two or three days.
5. Does The Hair Grow Back?
Laser hair removal is not a permanent procedure as it requires subsequent sessions of treatment. However, it is the most effective as it takes about 6 to 12 months for the hairs to regrow, which is over two times longer than any other hair removal procedure.
