Laser hair removal has caught on for a number of reasons, but chief among them may well be convenience. Although the process actually takes a few scheduled treatments before hair completely stops growing, you may well see the results you’re looking for much more quickly than you would with waxing or other techniques.
There is sometimes a little bit of redness and swelling after the fact, but that goes away quickly, and is generally far less of a hindrance than the irritation and soreness resulting from waxing, or the itchy stubble that occurs when shaved hairs start to grow back. In fact, the whole process is so painless that not even so much as a topical anesthetic is used in the procedure.
The list of convenient and pain-free methods of hair removal is a lot shorter than the list of hasslesome, painful, inconvenient, tedious and imperfect methods of hair removal. Shaving gives you that unpleasant stubble a day later, waxing may hurt less and less each time you have the procedure done, but it still hurts, and creams and gels can be ineffective and even allergenic.

The laser hair removal method is most frequently compared to electrolysis, but the two approaches to hair removal couldn’t be farther apart. Electrolysis involves actually applying currents of electricity directly to the skin. It sometimes leaves scarring and can cause nerve damage and is really regarded as a “last resort” as far as hair removal goes. Unfortunately, since YAG treatment works on the melanin in the hair follicle, some people with exceptionally blonde hair may not be able to get the results they’re after from the technique. In this case, waxing is recommended over electrolysis.
Laser Hair Removal procedure involves a few treatments and then you’ll likely be done with hair for good, so make sure that you do not have the YAG lasers performed on any part of your body where you may want to regrow the hair in the future.
