Everyone knows laser hair removal gives you permanently hair-free results. But not everyone considers the money- and time-saving benefits! Learn how getting zapped saves you big in the long run.
There are countless reasons to get laser hair removal. The benefits of zapping unwanted hair mean you don’t have to think twice about wearing shorts or a swimsuit. If you have skin imperfections like razor burn, ingrown hairs, or strawberry legs, laser hair removal will take care of them. And who doesn’t love the feel of silky smooth skin?
But laser hair removal can benefit more than just your skin. It can also save you time and money. Don’t believe us? We talked to Phoenix’s laser hair removal experts at Milan Laser Hair Removal, the nation’s largest laser hair removal provider, to learn more about how going hair-free means extra cash and time!
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal literally gets to the root of the problem! A laser pulse is delivered directly to the targeted area during laser hair removal treatments, and a controlled amount of heat safely and effectively damages the follicles. Because the heat destroys the follicle, hair can never grow again.
And guess what? Laser hair removal is for everyone! It’s not just for a specific gender, age, or skin tone—laser hair removal works on all skin tones when performed properly. But not all laser hair removal providers are equal, so do your research and find one with the technologies to treat the entire skin tone spectrum. For example, Milan Laser uses the Candela GentleMax Pro, which includes two lasers—the Nd: YAG for darker skin and the Alexandrite for lighter skin tones. That way, places like Milan Laser can create a tailored treatment plan for a client’s hair color and skin tone.
What’s the cost of laser hair removal compared to waxing and shaving?
People get in the habit of shaving every morning and going to waxing appointments, but they don’t sit and do the math on what’s being thrown away on temporary results. The average person spends 39 hours a year shaving and $3,800 over a lifetime on shaving essentials. For waxing appointments at salons, you’re looking at $24,000 over a lifetime.
Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is an investment rather than an expense. We say that because, over time, laser hair removal saves you time and money with permanent results. The average Milan Laser client is 95%+ hair-free within seven to 10 treatments. For extra savings, take advantage of laser hair removal specials and payment plans. For instance, Milan Laser offers affordable laser hair removal payment options.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
It’s important to avoid sun exposure before laser hair removal treatments. Your skin needs to be its natural skin tone for safe treatments, so stay away from tanning beds or sunless tanner throughout your treatment, and apply sunscreen regularly or cover-up when you’re outdoors, especially because Phoenix is sunny year-round. The treatment area needs to be clean-shaven, and at Milan Laser, we recommend shaving the day of or before your treatment for the best results. You’ll also want to go in for treatments with clean skin—no makeup, lotion, deodorant, or perfume.
Laser hair removal treatments are relatively fast, and there’s no downtime after, as opposed to painful waxing appointments. And best of all, the results you get after each treatment are permanent when done correctly. But because our bodies change as we age due to genetics or hormones, new hair follicles can become active, and new hair can grow—this is where touch-up fees come into play. To guarantee lifetime results, some places offer unlimited laser hair removal packages, like Milan Laser. If you choose one of these laser hair removal providers, you’ll never have to worry about touch-up fees or other surprise costs later on.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Compared to waxing, it’s a piece of cake! Waxing has the biggest ouch factor, as well as at-home IPL (intense pulsed light). We read so many laser hair removal reviews from clients who insist laser hair removal treatments are either painless or feel like a sting similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin, but only for a millisecond—the time it takes for the laser to zap your hair.
Many lasers, such as the Candela GentleMax Pro used at Milan Laser, have built-in comfort features. Some less sophisticated, outdated lasers utilize numbing creams or messy gels on the treatment area. The Candela offers the most comfortable laser hair removal treatments because it includes a cooling cryogen mist released immediately after each laser pulse to reduce any potential discomfort.
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
By now, you’ve likely learned that laser hair removal benefits are tenfold compared to other hair removal methods, especially for those who dread shaving every day. Laser hair removal is a small investment of time and pays off in the long run. Other hair removal methods will leave you with the dreaded stubble, bumps, and inevitable regrowth requiring constant maintenance—time and money down the drain.
Laser hair removal is safe, effective, and gives you permanent, lasting results. Another benefit that many don’t consider with laser hair removal is sustainability. By opting for laser hair removal, you’re cutting down on the plastic waste from single-use razors. So what could you do with extra time and money from cutting out waxing and shaving?
