Are you tired of razors that leave those ugly bumps of irritation? Nicking your face, no matter how cautious you are with the blade? What about having to shave your more delicate spots or arm hair. Some people are lucky and are naturally hairless or have very unnoticeable hair for most of their body. This is especially apparent in men, some men have hairy chests that don’t need much maintenance, but others are cursed with very haphazard hair growth, which means they have one extra place to worry about shaving. It can be a real pain, literally and figuratively. And while waxing is an option to consider, the thought of it sends chills down most people’s spines. Lasers are safe and effective Despite all the bad press about having procedures done using lasers or being exposed to laser beams, it is still one of the safest procedures you can have done. As long as your esthetician is a licensed and bonded professional, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about it. The worst reaction you can have from a laser treatment is slight sunburn or some discoloration for darker-skinned people, which normally goes away after a few days. The benefits outweigh whatever imagined risks you may have. No, you can’t get cancer, and you won’t get burned, literally from a laser gone awry. Your operator will personally calibrate the laser; using a test spot to make sure you skin doesn’t have any allergic reactions to it and to ensure that the laser’s spectrum is aligned to your hair color. A life without hair When it’s all said and done, after a few sessions, you will be essentially hair-free for the rest of your life. There are exceptions to this rule, but for the most part, your hair will no longer continue to grow in the treated areas. The healing process after a treatment is very quick, typically going away after a few weeks. I would call around to see what the rates are for laser hair removal Ottawa has many clinics and estheticians who offer competitive rates. If you are still on the fence, ask them about their process and have them walk you through the steps, explaining the science behind it. They know that an educated customer is a good customer, so it should be no bother to offer you some free consultation to see if you’re a good candidate for laser hair treatments.
