My mind is kind of blown right now. While looking up statistics for this post, I ran across this little gem. Apparently women spend 72 days on average shaving during her lifetime. That’s 1,728 hours. Of shaving. That is a lot of time. Personally, I hate shaving. I’m the kind of person who has stubble a few hours after finishing, and I have darker body hair. But, I also personally like the clean shaven look, and so I devote time to that portion of grooming. There has to be a better way!
Of course there is. Innovative Aesthetics has offered Laser Hair Removal since our inception, and it remains one of our most valued services. I mean, who doesn’t want smooth skin without any hassle? Luckily, this is one of our easy services that gets consistent results for most people.
Basically, the laser process is pretty simple. The laser energy is converted to heat, which, when passing through the dermis, is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, damaging the follicle, which then inhibits further growth. Now, this isn’t a one time visit. We usually recommend about 3 to 5 treatments in 5 to 8 week intervals to ensure that we’re reaching each hair in its active growth cycle. These are best started in the fall or winter, thereby ensuring silky smoothness just in time for your Spring Break or summer vacation.
Right off the bat, I know the price tag looks a little steep. And granted, yes, it’s more than the cost of a can of shaving cream and a disposable razor. However, if you factor in the amount of money spent on shaving supplies during a lifetime versus our cost for the 3 to 5 visits, you will be coming out ahead.
Big question-does it hurt? Weeelllll…it’s not painless. Most people describe it as a
“rubber band snapping against the skin” with each pulse of the laser. We have found that using a cooling fan or numbing cream can be helpful with the discomfort. Afterward, you may feel like the treated area is sunburnt, but that shouldn’t last more than a day.
