Why Laser Hair Removal is a Better Investment than Other Hair Removal Methods

The summer is in full swing, which means there’s more time for wearing bikinis, sleeveless tops and shorts. The downside? Unwanted hair. While shaving, waxing, sugaring and plucking are solutions, these methods only work so long before unwanted hair grows back. Shaving lasts for a few days. Waxing is painful though sugaring is less painful, yet you’re often left feeling very itchy when the hair grows back from either method. And depilatory creams may dissolve hair in minutes, but the smell of these products often makes you want to gag.

But what if you could permanently reduce unwanted facial or body hair? At Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, you can. With our advanced laser technology from Sciton, Visage Skin Care & Laser Center, a division of Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, elevates the standard in laser hair removing by combining speed, efficacy, safety and patient comfort.

It’s quick, simple and minimally-invasive. So why should you consider this treatment?

1) Over time, laser hair removal saves you money.

Let’s do a little math. If you purchase a $3 pack of razors and a $4 can of shaving cream each month, plus spend $50 on a bikini wax and $10 on a lip wax, that’s $67 per month just maintaining unwanted hair. Over a year, that’s $804! And that’s just for two waxes, a can of shaving cream and a pack of razors each month. While the cost of your laser hair removal treatment is dependent on the area you wish to have treated, the price is a few payments dependent upon your number of sessions rather than roughly $804 every year. And after 10 years of shaving and waxing, that’s roughly $8,040.

2) Laser hair removal works on multiple areas – saving you time.

From all over your face to your underarms, legs, bikini line, back, neck or chest, laser hair removal can be used on multiple areas. Shaving or waxing don’t always do the trick on some areas, but laser hair removal saves you time by tackling unwanted hair in a few sessions instead of a shaving session every 2 days or a waxing session every week. And while laser hair removal tends to work best on fair skin and dark hair, our laser technology works effectively across all skin tones.

3) Laser hair removal is (close to) painless.

We’ve heard the mantra “beauty is pain.” And while laser hair removal isn’t entirely painless like shaving (although we’ve all had the occasional cut or two from shaving), laser hair removal isn’t painful like waxing. We’ll numb the areas to be lasered before the procedure and the process becomes less painful with additional sessions. But the pain with laser hair removal isn’t anything close to waxing.

We get it. Laser hair removal can sound scary. But our treatment is comfortable, gentle and non-invasive. And if you have sensitive skin, a topical anesthetic can be applied prior to treatment to reduce sensitivity. Slightly tender or red skin after a procedure is normal, but if you do have additional questions, we’re here to help. No one likes unwanted hair – especially in the summertime.
