Laser treatment is safe for all types of skin, whether you have a light skin or a dark skin. It is convenient, efficient and effective. It is safe for all body parts: including the face, back, arms, legs and bikini. In this treatment, the laser emits light at a particular wavelength which targets hair follicle. The light gets converted into heat, which destroys the follicle. The treatment takes about 10 minutes to an hour depending upon the area to be treated. It is suitable for sensitive skin and also removes the inconvenience of having to deal with ingrown hair. Laser hair removal treatment is the perfect option for you if you are looking for a permanent solution and want to save yourself from monthly waxing exercise.
Many people hold back the choice considering it is slightly expensive than other options, but this is an unadorned myth that needs debunking. The traditional methods like shaving, waxing are time-consuming, expensive, and leads to ingrown hair and bumps. When summing up to the cost of razors or lifelong waxing or electrolysis treatment, it does exceed the cost of laser treatment. Down the road, you will get a good return on your laser treatment investment. Also, most people will agree that electrolysis, shaving, and waxing are more painful compared to laser hair removal.
To give you a fair idea on how laser saves you lots of money, we have compiled a comparison case study, which displays the money you will be spending on waxing, razors, and electrolysis.
Let’s assume you start shaving at 15 years of age and you will shave until you turn 55. Shaving is an exercise that has to be performed two times a week. Disposable razor may cost around Rs 100 per piece, which means you are spending around Rs 200 per week and Rs 800 per month. Assuming you will be shaving for next 40 years, the amount is indeed sumptuous and not to overlook the number of days you will be spending doing that (approx. 150 days spent over a lifetime). Did we forget about razor cuts you get? Ouch! Even after shaving when you cannot wear your favorite dress, we feel you!
Women have made hair removal a life time chore and superfluously spend thousands of rupees every year. In waxing, warm wax is applied in the direction of hair growth and removed in the opposite direction. It is performed in salons and most of the time you are left with bumps and redness. Waxing for arms and legs cost you Rs 200 and Rs 300 respectively, whereas full body waxing cost you Rs 2000. Waxing treatment is required usually every 3-5 weeks depending on the area to be treated, which means you spend around Rs 2000 every month (we are not talking about salons in malls, they can be much costlier). So, you don’t just waste enormous money, but you also spend over 150 days of your life waxing. Also, the wax may not have grip for short hair, which is not a case in laser treatments.
It is a permanent method to remove hair individually. In this treatment, a very fine needle is inserted into the hair follicle, which transmits an electric current causing a chemical reaction to permanently remove that particular hair strand. You need to be very careful when selecting your electrologist as an incorrect method can cause scarring. Treatment is performed usually every week and you may have to undergo several treatments. It can be time-consuming and painful as each hair is treated individually. Treatment is usually charged by time. Electrolysis practitioners charge anywhere from Rs 2500 - Rs 5000 per hour in India.
Lots of women prefer this method to save themselves from the pain of waxing and shaving but this method doesn’t rid you of hair but simply lighten the color. Plus, they contain harsh chemicals and cause irritation to the skin.
With the laser treatment, last minute of shave for an unexpected date will be a thing of the past. One time treatment might cost you more compared to waxing or shaving, but you are only paying for the course of 7-8 sessions and not the rest of your life. You should understand that laser hair removal cost may vary according to the location and the experience of a dermatologist.
