If you’re like most people, then hair removal is probably part of your daily or weekly beauty routine. You might shave, wax, tweeze, or use a special hair-removal cream to get rid of unwanted hair for days or weeks at a time. If you’re looking for an option that provides longer-lasting, potentially permanent results, you might consider laser hair removal.
You’re probably well aware of the fact that laser hair removal can effectively take care of leg hair, hair around the bikini line, and problem facial hair. But there are some other areas of the body that laser hair removal can also treat you may not have considered.
If you’re tired of the shaving or waxing game, consider taking care of your unwanted hair for good in these surprising areas with a series of laser treatments.
When you head to the waxing salon to take care of the hair in your bikini area, you’re usually presented with a wide range of options. You can get rid of the hair along your bikini line, you can remove a bit more, but leave a landing strip, or you can go all bare. Going all bare is also known as a Brazilian.
If you’ve ever had a Brazilian wax, you know it can be a challenging experience, particularly the first time. What if you could do something so that you never had to wax all the hair off again?
Getting a laser hair Brazilian might be the best option for you. It will most likely involve a series of treatment sessions, but once the sessions are over, you won’t have to ever worry about getting it all waxed again.
Beard and Mustache
Women who are dealing with unwanted facial hair on the upper lip or cheeks are often well aware of the fact that they can have laser hair removal treatments to get rid of that hair and to break the waxing or bleaching cycle.
Here’s a secret: It’s not just women who can have laser hair removal to get rid of a mustache or beard hair. Guys can do it, too. If you’re tired of shaving every day and have a sense that you’ll never want to wear a mustache or beard again, then lasering that hair off might make sense for you.
Growing out the hair under the arms might be a trend these days, but you know for a fact that having hair in your armpits messes up your deodorant or antiperspirant. If you’re tired of shaving that area daily, laser hair removal might be the best option.
Back and Chest
Here’s another area that might be more popular with the fellas than with women: the back. Although it’s usually covered up by a shirt, back hair can be a source of embarrassment when you’re at the beach or any other times when you want to go shirtless.
Laser hair removal can target back hair, chest hair, neck hair and hair across the shoulders.
Toes and Fingers
Got hairy toes or fingers? Lots of people do. If shaving your toes is a part of your pedicure routine or if you feel self-conscious about having hairy paws, laser hair removal might be the way to go.
What to Know Before Laser Hair Removal
Whether you’re going for a full Brazilian, want smooth armpits, or are a guy who’d be happy never to shave again, there are some things to know before you jump into laser hair removal.
First, laser hair removal usually isn’t a “one and done” treatment. Your hair grows in three phases. The laser treatment targets hair in the growing, or anagen, phase. Any hair in the resting or transition phase will be unaffected by the treatment.
To make sure all the hair in the target area gets treated, you’ll most likely need a series of treatments. How many treatments you’ll need will depend on the size of the area you’re treating.
Another thing to know about laser hair removal is that while it can work on all types of hair and is safe for all skin types, some types of hair respond better to the treatment. If you’ve got coarse, dark hair, the type that usually resists waxing or shaving, there’s good news. Dark, coarse hair is usually the best type of hair for laser removal.
Like other methods of hair removal, you might feel some uncomfortable sensations during a laser treatment. The discomfort might not be as bad as waxing, but it will be a little more intense than basic shaving. Some people compare the feeling of laser hair removal to being snapped with a rubber band. If you want to treat an area that’s known for being sensitive, that’s something to keep in mind.
No matter where you’ve got body hair, if you want it to be gone for good, laser hair removal can help. To learn more and to find out if you’re a good candidate for the treatment, call 281-810-9083 to schedule an appointment at Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique in Houston, TX today.
