Summer is coming, and here at the MedSpa at PSS, we couldn’t be more excited. It’s been a challenging year, and though we are all practicing gratitude, we’re also restless and can’t wait to finally be social, enjoy the beach, and maybe even plan a summer vacation. As bathing suit season approaches, have you considered the miracle that is laser hair removal? This non-surgical procedure can be done in all areas where hair is unwanted, but it’s especially effective and appropriate for the bikini line.
Here are the 5 top reasons to throw out the razor and waxing strips in favor of technology:
1. ELIMINATE THE EFFORT
Shaving, waxing, and tweezing your body to creamy, flawless perfection is just too much work. It’s boring, painful, and repetitive. And the bristly stubble that quickly sprouts up will keep you busy chasing after velvety smooth skin in a race against time you can never win.
2. ELIMINATE THE DISCOMFORT
Let’s face it, waxing hurts! Lasers, on the other hand, have come a long way over the years, and their technology keeps getting better. At TheSpa at PSS, we use Sciton’s BBL (Broadband Light) hair removal system, which has a builtin cooling feature. Even at maximum power, your skin stays cool and comfortable. There is no lingering pain once your treatment is complete, so you leave satisfied and pain free.
3. ELIMINATE INGROWN HAIRS
By eliminating the hair through laser hair removal, the blood flow to the hair follicle is cut off so the hairs fall out from the root. This prevents ingrown hairs, and keeps your bikini line free of those irritating, itchy and unsightly red spots.
4. SKIP THE MESS
Unlike waxing and shaving, there are no creams, gels, or sticky mess. Laser hair removal appointments tend to be shorter than the arduous hot wax approach, and lasers result in long-lasting and permanent hair reduction.
5. ACHIEVE LASTING RESULTS
Most importantly, once you’ve done your series of treatments (usually 6-10) every 4-6 weeks, you can say goodbye to shaving or waxing for good. After the initial sessions, most people are then in the touch-up phase and only need maintenance treatments a couple times a year.
Whether you’re male or female, laser hair removal can be used to take away unwanted hair anywhere. The result is a boost of self-esteem. It’s no secret that smooth skin is aesthetically pleasing, and with laser hair removal you’ll never have to worry about body hair again. Laser hair removal not only eliminates annoyances like razor burn, ingrown hairs, and nicks; it’s also a more permanent solution, ultimately saving you time and money.
