Simplify Your Hair Care Regimen and Opt For Laser Hair Removal

The sun is starting to peak out and the pavement is heating up. With the Midwestern sun comes intensely hot summer weather — and it’s only two months away. After you’ve loaded up on sunscreen and found an amazing sun hat you need to focus on your skin. More specifically, your hair. Whether you want to remove general body hair or if you have an overgrowth of hair due to genetics, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, or a medication side effect.

Body Hair

There is no such thing as a “normal” amount of body hair, everybody and every body is totally unique. Some women produce low levels of the male hormone, androgen, and other women’s bodies produce larger amounts, which can lead to unwanted hair growth. Though it isn’t anything worrisome, it isn’t something that is portrayed as normal (if at all) in popular culture and media. This leads many women to find it bothersome or embarrassing.

Laser Hair Removal vs. Other Methods

  • Tweezing is fine for small, isolated areas like eyebrows and the odd chin hairs.
  • Shaving can be used to remove hair from legs and underarms. It should not be used on arms or on the face, as the hair usually returns more dark and coarse.
  • Waxing can be done at home or in a beauty salon. It is fast but needs to be performed again like shaving. It is also slightly more painful and lasting skin damage can occur from using hot wax in place of wax strips.
  • Laser Removal is the use of a highly concentrated light beam into hair follicles to eliminate the hair. It targets the roots and can cause permanent loss of the hair follicle after only 3-5 treatments. The procedure must be performed by a skilled technician or doctor to prevent skin damage. The procedure is fast and can remove hair in a quarter size location in just a second.
