Having been in the aesthetic laser equipment business for several years, we encounter this question frequently during any trade shows we attend with doctors and medical spa owners. Their clients often reach out to us as a leading parts and repair company who knows these machines from the inside out to ask this question from a technical perspective. So is it worth it?
Well, if you are interested in a permanent hair removal solution, laser hair removal is the way to go. It is safe, virtually painless, and very effective. Obviously there are other factors to consider when choosing to undergo laser hair removal treatments, but considering the results will last, it is our professional opinion that it is definitely worth it. Why? Because of how effective it is as a permanent hair removal solution. When using the right equipment, the treatment frequency is reduced and results are achieved significantly faster.
The laser pulse is applied to the surface of the skin. It penetrates the skin, burning the hair follicle underneath, which prevents it from ever growing again. It is important to mention that several treatments are required to achieve permanent hair removal, as the visible hair on the body at any one time is not the only consideration, meaning even when you undergo your initial treatments, hair follicles will develop in areas that did not have a follicle initially. Therefore other treatments are required for a more permanent solution. The number of treatments varies depending on the person. So is laser hair removal worth it? We certainly believe so. Consult with your local dermatologist or Medical Spa professional for any additional questions you may have.
