Laser Hair Removal

We have hair on just about every part of our body regardless of how small and fine it may be. Hair grows on our arms, legs, face, head, and just about everywhere else—it's a part of our skin and physiological makeup. However, despite this natural state of hair, sometimes it's just gross and we want to get rid of it. Electrolysis is a good way to get rid of hair, but laser hair removal specifically targets hair that is significantly and unattractively darker than the surrounding area. While maybe ideal for your hair removal needs, laser hair removal does have its drawbacks. This course of action should be given heavy consideration along with its risks and cost.

Areas most commonly treated by laser hair removal are the face, upper lip, legs, abdomen, back, underarms, and bikini lines. Unsightly hair in these areas really can be unsightly and so the want for hair removal is more understandable, however success is not guaranteed.

While you may want to undergo laser hair removal, be aware that to be a good candidate you must pass a few physical qualifications. Laser hair removal is not optimal for people with dark skin or dark tans, or people with skin darker than their hair (e.g. blonds with deep tans). This basically leaves you with pretty fair skinned people who are preferably brunettes. The reason for this weeding of candidates is that the process in laser hair removal focuses on the darkest parts of the skin and hair. If your skin is dark you have a higher risk of being harmed during the procedure.

Also, laser hair removal is fairly expensive and requires multiple treatments. The average cost for a full average laser treatment is roughly $1,000. Beware of "discount" laser hair removal clinics because good laser removal is expensive. High quality places won't discount their services. Good laser treatment is somewhat difficult to ensure because of how much it's personalized. Your skin tone has a huge influence on how the laser treatment will turn out. The lighter the skin, the greater chance at success.

I'd only recommend laser hair removal if it really is necessary. It's expensive, painful, and not guaranteed to work. When it comes to my face especially I'm hesitant to agree to anything that could permanently alter it. Were I to volunteer myself for laser hair removal, I'd opt to have it on a place not as conspicuous as my face. Approach this decision with caution and consult your physician so you understand all the personally applicable risks involved.
