You might think waxing is a better option than shaving your legs, bikini area, and underarms to get ready for summertime. And, you might be right. Although shaving is something many women must do daily for smooth, hair-free skin, waxing can give you (mostly) smooth, hair-free skin for about three weeks.
But, here’s the thing: Like shaving, waxing is just a temporary fix for unwanted hair. It’s painful, messy, and you have to keep repeating the process. Maybe even more frustrating is the fact that you have to let your unwanted hair grow out so it’s at least a quarter inch long before your next waxing appointment.
If you’re stuck on the waxing roller coaster, laser hair removal is your ticket off the ride. Here at, Vibrant Woman Health Center in Lafayette, LA we provide state-of-the-art laser hair removal services for men and women of all skin types. Once you try it, you’ll wonder why you waited so long.
Unlike waxing, laser hair removal is a permanent solution
Unlike waxing or shaving, laser hair removal offers permanent hair-reduction. We use the FDA-approved Cynosure Elite system, which targets and destroys the follicles through two different wavelengths.
Once damaged, the hair follicles can no longer grow new hair. So, after a few treatments, which your provider optimizes based on your skin and hair color and texture, you can be hair-free for good.
Say goodbye to after-wax bumps and ingrown hairs
If you’ve been waxed before, you probably had the unpleasant experience of the red, after-wax bumps and skin irritation that often comes with the treatment, especially if you have sensitive skin. Small red bumps, ingrown hairs, and red, irritated skin are not uncommon after you have your legs or bikini area waxed. Ingrown hairs are also common when an individual hair isn’t completely removed during the process.
Many men and women find that the laser hair removal treatment itself is much more comfortable than the waxing process, in which your hair is literally being ripped out of your skin.
Laser hair removal feels like a tingling sensation or the snap of a tiny rubber band against your skin. It’s over relatively quickly, too, with treatments lasting just 15-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area you’d like to be hair-free by summer.
Start now and be ready for summer
Since hair grows in stages, you’ll need more than one laser hair removal treatment to get the results you want by summer. Now is the perfect time to get started, as appointments usually take place four to six weeks apart. You’ll notice a 10-25% reduction in hair after your first session, and optimal results — as in you may no longer need to shave, wax, or pluck — in five to seven treatments. The team at Vibrant Woman Health Center customizes a treatment plan based on your individual needs.
