4 Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

If you’ve ever found yourself wearing pants or long sleeves on a hot summer day just to avoid shaving your legs or arm pits, you’re not alone. From itchy and unsightly rashes to painful cuts and ingrown hairs, shaving unwanted body hair can do a lot more harm than good. 

Over time, it can even lead to scarring the delicate skin around your bikini line and other parts of your body. 

At Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic, our medical director, Dr. Nasrin Ejtemaee, and our team can help you put an end to shaving for good with laser hair removal treatments at our office in Ashburn, Virginia. 

Removing unwanted body hair can be a painful, stressful, time-consuming, and expensive process over the years. Depending on the hair removal method, the average person can find themselves shaving or waxing at least once or twice a week, or more.

Laser hair removal is the best alternative to the ongoing grind of removing unwanted body hair. Here are just a few of the reasons to give it a try.

Save time

Each laser hair removal session takes less than 30 minutes. You can go before work, on your lunch break, or between errands without the added prep and clean-up time involved with shaving, waxing, or messy hair removal creams and gels. (And without the harsh chemicals that irritate sensitive skin.)

Stay hair-free longer

Laser hair removal is the only method that provides long-term results. We use the Splendor X laser hair removal system by Lumenis®. This system uses heat to release the hair from the follicle (including the root), so hair is less likely to grow back over time. 

Most people require several laser hair removal sessions, depending on the hair type.

With just a few laser hair removal treatments, you can say goodbye to additional years (and hundreds or even thousands of dollars) of shaving, waxing, and other less effective methods for removing unwanted body hair.

None of the side effects of shaving

Not only is laser hair removal gentle, it also leaves your skin feeling silkier and smoother with each treatment. If you’ve ever suffered from razor burn or ingrown hair, you know how painful and uncomfortable getting rid of unwanted body hair can be. 

Laser hair removal is the least invasive method available.

Long-term savings

After the initial investment, laser hair removal allows you to recoup what you would have spent on other hair removal products and services. 

Laser hair removal works for both men and women, and is safe to use on the body parts where people tend to spend the most time and money, including your:

The beginning of summer and end of quarantine is the perfect time to give laser hair removal a try and put your best face — and skin — forward.
