Laser hair removing is the most common procedure in the United States to remove unwanted hair. But everyone asks the question before going for the treatment that “does laser hair removal really work?“. So the answer is yes, it really works but it’s not permanent. And it is better than shaving and waxing.

You can’t deny the fact that waxing, shaving, and hair plucking help you get rid of body hair, but they are all messy and painful. Laser hair removal is painless and very effective in removing hair from any part of the body like legs, hands, bikini area, underarms and even face. Moreover, it is suitable for all types of skin and offers long-lasting results. Let me tell you that why do I hat other methods of hair removing.

Reasons for not to Shave

Shaving gives very smooth results but it lasts only a few hours and then hair grow back. Shaving in winter is the worst thing one has to do it. Normally goosebumps develop after shaving in winters. It is very rare occasion that I didn’t get goosebumps and rash free area after shaving. No doubt shaving is more save than waxing and laser hair removing but it carries only a few benefits and short time of hair growth.

Reasons One should never Wax

Do you want to know that how does it feel when waxing? Take a tape 5 inch in length and apply it to your forearm. Now pull it down so every hair is attached. You will feel like the last moment of your life. Waxing is too much costly for a common user. One cannot afford to wax if he/she earn less than $15/hour. After 2 to 3 weeks of waxing, hair grow back and once again you need money to wax and pain to be felt.

Due to above-mentioned reasons, one should choose laser hair removing instead of shaving or waxing.
