Laser hair reduction continues to be a popular procedure over the years as it is highly effective, safe, and provides patients with convenience saving them hours of shaving. People with excessive to normal amounts of hair that wish to reduce hair are turning to offices such as drs skincare in Hamilton, ON, for hair removal services. Dr. Rahul Shukla utilizes laser technology to safely and effectively remove hair that patients wish to see eliminated.
The Popularity of Laser Hair Removal
Many at-home treatments, including waxing and shaving, are becoming things of the past thanks to the advancement in hair removal procedures that can be performed safely and cost-effectively by skin care professionals. Due to the increasing availability of these services, an ever-increasing number of individuals are choosing hair removal procedures daily.
Studies conducted in 2012 have found that nearly 11 billion dollars were spent on cosmetic surgical procedures alone, with nearly 400 million of that money going towards laser hair removal. Based on these numbers, it is easy to see just how popular this procedure has become. The number of laser hair removal procedures performed annually has increased each year in all applicable age groups at about the same rate over the past decade, with the highest increase occurring in those aged over 55 years.
The continuous increase in the popularity of hair removal procedures is at least partly due to its ability to often provide long-lasting results with minimal discomfort and high levels of safety.
Why Are People Seeking Laser Hair Removal?
There are several reasons people are continuing to choose laser hair removal in increasing numbers each year. For some, the reasons may be purely cosmetic, for others, it may be due to conditions such as hypertrichosis or hirsutism. Often, people turn to laser hair reduction to provide convenience as it saves a person thousands of hours over a lifetime. Regardless of the motivation, laser hair reduction will likely remain popular over the years given its efficacy, relative safety, and tolerability.
Safety of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal treatment has proven to be a safe and effective treatment with minimal side effects typically. The process itself can be performed quickly. Results, of course, will vary depending on the skin care professional you choose, so do your research ahead of time so that you know you can trust the individual performing the procedure. Make sure and ask questions about the equipment being used since different lasers can emit different light frequencies, all of which can produce varying results. The great news, however, is that when in the right hands, laser hair removal is very safe and produces incredible results.
Cost of Laser Hair Removal
The investment to undergo laser hair reduction is worthwhile to many as it is relatively affordable given the time and money saved over a lifetime of shaving, waxing, or using depilatory cream such as “Nair”.
At drs skincare, laser hair treatment is performed, using the Diolaze diode laser and the Triton laser, both of which provide fast and effective hair reduction. The Diolaze diode laser offers comfortable treatment for patients of most skin colors, while the Triton laser, being one of the newest lasers on the market being used for hair removal, provides effective reduction of hair on people of all skin colors.
