Did you know that about 95% of the total skin area is covered in hair?
It simply means that from the legs to hands, jaw, underarms, and face, we all have some hair follicles on parts of our bodies we wish we could just uproot.
To remove this challenge, we often use traditional hair removal methods like tweezing, waxing, and shaving. However, their most significant drawbacks are that they won't offer a long-term solution. Fortunately, there is a better way to remove unwanted hair on the body, using a laser hair removal handset.
A laser hair removal handset is a non-surgical cosmetic device that uses light rays to remove unwanted hair from the body. It does this by sending laser light beams into the hair follicles surrounding the desired area. The melanin pigment of the hair follicle then absorbs the light and kills the hair follicles from the root.
A Long-Term Solution to Unwanted Hair Challenges
For the average person, hair grows at a speed of 1 cm every month. It's no wonder when you wax or shave unwanted hair, they regrow in days. With a hair removal handset, people will enjoy long-lasting results. The laser technology ensures that hair does not grow for months. Then again, you may have to do a touch-up routinely to ensure a permanent halt to hair regrowth.
If you’ve had hair removed before, you know tiring it can be to sit for hours on one cosmetic treatment.
Waxing takes about 20 to 30 minutes to complete, but IPL handsets won’t take this much time. The procedure typically ranges between 10 to 15 minutes for underarms, legs, and bikini areas, while facial hair removal takes only 5 to 7 minutes.
Still, how long it takes will depend on the size of the targeted area. So, the smaller the surface requiring treatment, the less time spent doing the procedure.
An IPL laser hair removal handset won’t bring painful effects from razor burns to redness and skin irritation. Unlike waxing which requires pulling hairs out forcefully, the laser only sends a snappy-hot yet warm sensation into the area without inflicting any pain, even around sensitive areas like the legs and bikini part. Although for many, the snappy sensation may feel uncomfortable, it only lasts for seconds and is endurable.
Ingrown hairs, especially around the face and underarms, are one of the biggest nightmares anyone can experience following their waxing, shaving, threading, or epilating routine. The good news is that laser hair removal devices can eliminate them.
When the hair follicles absorb the light energy from the handset, the energy converts to heat, and you know what heat doles – burn anything that comes in contact with it. Simply put, the laser light burns (not literarily) the hair from its roots, so you never have to worry about discomforting growth.
With traditional procedures like waxing, shaving in between sessions is impossible since you must have shaved all the hair particles and only inflict injuries waxing without hair growth. Laser cosmetic handsets do not follow this procedure. In fact, you need to shave between sessions to eliminate hair on the body.
If you’ve ever used a shaving razor, you know that even after shaving, you still get some prickly stubble around the shaved area. For men, a prickly mustache is no new experience with a razor blade. With IPI handsets, you don’t have to worry about leaving behind small stubbles. This means the treatment area will feel soft, smooth, and silky after laser treatment.
Even the longest waxing session does not guarantee you have smooth silky toned skin. Still, laser handsets offer impeccable grooming results that make you love your appearance because you won’t have to worry about hair regrowth immediately. In fact, laser hair removal devices give you the freedom to dress up. You can easily wear short skirts or a sleeveless dress and beach wear without feeling like losing self-confidence.
Think about all the time you had to buy shaving sticks and tweezers. The money might not seem high priced at first, but in the long run, it can amass to hundreds and thousands of dollars, depending on your frequency.
By using laser hair removal handsets, you eliminate the need to spend money on traditional skin rejuvenation procedures, from waxing to shaving, weekly.
You won't have any hair to trim after your treatment for a long time, so it saves you time and effort. First hair removal with treatments with laser handsets typically ranges between 6 to 10 times in 4 to 6 weeks. After this, you enter the touch-up phase. It means you only have to do routine check-ups. Technically touch-up treatments won’t exceed 2 to 3 times every year.
Laser hair removal handheld devices offer beautiful, safe, effective, long-lasting, low maintenance, and fast results. But, more than this, they suit every skin type. So, if you're tired of having small stubbles even after shaving or waxing, it’s time to consider getting an IPI handset for home use.
