The Benefits of Getting A Laser Hair Removal Treatment

The Benefits of Getting Laser Hair Removal Treatment

How many hours have you spent plucking, shaving and waxing unwanted hair from your face and body? Imagine how much time you’d save by removing it once and for all. In the past, the only good option was undergoing electrolysis, which involved sending electric currents into hair follicles through fine needles that were inserted into the skin. Thankfully, today a better option is available: laser hair removal. At Defy Nature Med Spa, we perform laser hair removal with the Gentle Max from Candela. This is considered to be the gold standard of hair-removal technology, certainly superior to Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal. Unlike IPL (a broadband pulsed light source), our Gentle Max system uses a more selective wavelength (a monochromatic coherent light source) at a very high energy that focuses on the hair follicle rather than surrounding skin. Because of this science, the treatments will lead to faster results, also working well on darker skin tones year-round which are why LHR (laser hair removal) is one of Defy Nature’s most popular services.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

1. Save Time

Healthy hair never stops growing. Without permanently removing it, you will continue spending significant periods of your life waxing, shaving and plucking it away. Removing hair with lasers is much faster than electrolysis because larger areas can be covered at one time; legs and back for example. Therefore, the procedure itself is fast, and it will save you countless hours of maintenance down the line.

2. Save Money

While the initial upfront costs of removing hair with lasers may make you raise an eyebrow, it’s important to consider the big picture. Once the work is done, the days of paying for razors, wax, shaving cream and other necessities will be over. Razor blades, in particular, are pricey, so you stand to save thousands of dollars over your lifetime by having the hair permanently removed.

3. Quick Results

Unlike electrolysis, which is a painstaking process that only covers incredibly small areas at a time, removing hair with lasers is fairly expedient. That’s partly because the process covers an area the size of a quarter each second. Lasers specifically target coarse, dark hair, so they are also very efficient.

4. Remove Hair between Treatments

Another big advantage of laser hair removal is that you don’t have to let the hair grow out to undergo treatment. This means that you can schedule subsequent treatments fairly close to each other, (about a month apart) so you should be able to accomplish your goals in a shorter period of time. Besides, who wants to walk around with hairy legs until their next hair removal session rolls around?


Long-Lasting Results

This type of hair removal offered at Defy Nature provides long-lasting an, many times, permanent results. Since you won’t have to worry about plucking, shaving or waxing away the unwanted hair anymore, you won’t have to worry about ingrown hairs, nicks, cuts and other issues anymore, either. The process is completely safe and incredibly precise. The best part about it of all, though, is having one less thing to worry about when it comes to daily grooming habits.

If you’re ready to ditch razors, wax, tweezers and other painful hair removal tools and techniques once and for all, laser removal may be the answer. Learn more about it by contacting us at 860-442-5347 or by visiting our website.
