I’m a hairy girl and usually have to shave once a day, but I hate hate the mess of waxing and the nicks and cuts that you can get from shaving so I’ve began considering using laser hair removal for my legs. Although it can be quite expensive if you go to a professional, if you stop to consider the amount of time and energy that you waste shaving every week it could be worth it.
Costs of Laser Hair Removal
Depending on how thick your hair is and the pigment of your skin you may pay anywhere between $300-500 a session, and expect to go for 3-4 sessions. if you go to a professional make sure that you get a referral from someone who has gone and that the operator is experienced as these lasers can damage the skin.
Home Laser Kits
If the professional route sounds like it’s too expensive today there are home laser machines that you can buy for a fraction of the price. however again you need to be careful with these and make sure to read and follow the directions explicitly as you can damage the skin. the home laser hair removal machines work the in the same way that the professional models do. Essentially what happens is lasers send heat down to the hair follicle which retards growth. the outer skin and the surrounding tissue is cooled to prevent damage. when the hair growth is disabled you will eventually get long term hair removal. Although it will take several treatments before you see the results that you want.
There are of course cheaper and less permanent ways to remove hair such as using body creams, which are fast and painless.
