Laser Hair Removal VS. Waxing

Do you find yourself wishing for skin that’s smooth, hairless, and razor-burn free? 

Removing unwanted hair is a never-ending battle. Your hard work doesn’t last long; after you shave or use depilatory creams, it’s only days before visible hair shows up again.

You need professional treatments to slow hair growth and give you long-lasting results. Have you tried waxing or laser hair removal? While both are effective, they aren’t quite equal; waxing and laser hair removal have unique pros and cons.

So, which one should you choose? We’ve written this blog post to help you decide. Below, we’ve listed the benefits and drawbacks of each hair removal method, so you can select one that’s right for you:

How It Works

You can achieve smooth, hairless skin by waxing or booking a laser treatment. But depending on which you choose, the mode of action (and your results) will be quite different. 

With waxing, your esthetician will spread hot or cold wax over the treatment area. Once it hardens, they’ll remove it using a strip of fabric or by pulling the wax itself. The downside to this method is while it removes hair, it leaves the follicle intact.

On the other hand is laser hair removal. The device we use emits a high-powered laser, which targets the hair follicle. The laser is converted to heat, which damages and destroys the follicle. Once it’s eliminated, the hair will grow back thinner, and will take longer to grow back. You can schedule maintenance treatments in the future to maintain your results.

Now that you know the basics, let’s get into why you might choose one method over the other.
