Laser Hair Removal Benefits

Naples Med Spa Touts Ten Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

People have been actively removing unwanted facial and body hair since ancient times. Archeologists believe our ancestral cave dwellers used seashells and sharpened flints to remove their hair to control lice and mites. While hygiene may have played a role, the upper classes of ancient Egyptian, Roman, and Persian civilizations controlled their facial and body hair to help mark their status. Unwanted hair was closely cut or shaved off with sharp blades, plucked with tweezer-like implements, pulled out with beeswax or a sugar wax substance, or removed with mixed success by assorted depilatory potions.

Most of today’s hair removal implements are not far removed from those used by the ancients, and removal methods primarily consist of shaving, cutting, plucking, pulling, and sloughing off with depilatory creams like Nair. We have one option, though, that does not have a precursor from ancient times, let alone 30 years ago. Commercially available in the U.S. as of 1996, laser hair removal offers one of the most effective and longest-lasting means of removing unwanted hair today.

To help you better understand the benefits of laser hair removal, Naples-based Tru Glō Medspa has compiled this top 10 list of its primary benefits over traditional hair removal methods. Our Southwest Florida-area patients love the ease, relative comfort, and results we provide with Alma Soprano XL laser hair removal at our Naples med spa—and we believe you will, too!

1. Laser Hair Removal is Long Lasting

Shaving, tweezing, and waxing represent temporary hair-removal solutions because these methods only remove hair at or just below skin level. Hairs can quickly re-emerge from the skin and resume their growth. The laser energy penetrates deeper to target hair follicles beneath the skin. The damaged follicles take longer to resume their hair growth and emerge from the skin; some become inactive. Over time, with multiple sessions, laser hair removal can deliver permanent hair reduction results in some treated areas.

2. Laser Hair Removal is Quick

It doesn’t matter how proficient you or your professional aesthetician are at shaving, tweezing, or waxing; laser hair removal is typically quicker. The laser energy takes just seconds to zap away swatches of hair, so you can undergo most laser hair treatments in the time it takes for your lunch break. Oh, and because laser hair removal provides longer-lasting results, you will not need to undergo as many hair removal sessions each year.

3. Laser Energy Delivers Precision

Professional laser hair removal ensures precision, consequently negating the likelihood that any hairs will be missed, as can sometimes happen with shaving and waxing. The precision also allows for greater sculpting between shorn areas, and anywhere you might want to retain some hair.

4. Conducted with Minimal Discomfort

Most people who use wax removal as their primary hair removal method dread the pain that comes with it. Shaving generally doesn’t hurt unless you get a razer nick, but it can be irritating. Laser hair removal is pain-free, and a topical cooling gel can help ease any feeling of minimal discomfort with the procedure.

5. No More Shaving or Waxing After-Effects

Shaving and waxing often leave the treated area red and irritated, with the skin displaying evidence of the recent hair removal. Most people who undergo laser hair removal experience no after-effects or visible signs of the treatment. Any apparent redness in the few who do experience this side-effect quickly dissipates, especially with an application of aloe vera gel.

6. Say Goodbye to Ingrown Hairs

Shaving and, to a lesser degree, waxing can cause painful and annoying ingrown hairs because the hair has been sheared at or near the skin surface, allowing it to regrow in a misdirected fashion. Laser hair removal disrupts the hair at the follicles, negating its ability to grow the wrong way.

7. Limits Future Hair Growth and Can Be Permanent

Laser hair removal’s follicle-level effectiveness curtails future hair regrowth and thins the amount of body hair regrowth with each session. Hair growth in areas treated comes back lighter and thinner. In fact, with enough treatments, it can become permanent in some areas.

8. No Need to Let Hair Grow Between Treatments

If you rely on waxing for body hair removal, you know that touch-up shaving is a no-no because you need to let the hair grow enough for the waxing to be effective. With laser hair removal, you can perform touch-up shaving as needed, though you probably won’t need to conduct as much tough-up work between sessions.

9. Save Money with Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal may be a bit pricier than other hair removal methods, but it can prove cost-effective over the longer term. You’ll need fewer laser hair removal sessions to consistently keep the unwanted hair at bay. Second, you’ll likely need to purchase fewer hair removal and skin care products. In fact, with laser hair removal, you really only need to protect your shorn skin with sunscreen.

10. Did We Mention That It’s Safe?

We’ll close this compilation of laser hair removal benefits by noting that the procedure is safe. As a concept, laser energy sounds like it could damage health, but professional laser hair removal is completely safe, and the Alma Soprano XL is FDA-approved for all skin types.

Highly Recommend

Highly recommend TruGlo MedSpa for all laser aesthetics. Stacy Blake, over 30yrs of experience and beautiful herself, transformed my face with just one HALO treatment($1600) as seen in my before and after pictures below. Dr Gardner(best plastic surgeon in all of South Florida) owns TruGlo MedSpa.

I had consultations with all of the top doctors in South Florida; Naples, Coral Gables, Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Jupiter. I decided to go with Dr Gardner & TruGlo MedSpa. Afterwards I went back to the same top plastic surgeons who complimented Gardner’s work.

Summer H

Definitely 5 star!

Tru Glo Medspa is top notch. The office is beautiful with calm aura. Gretchen is always so helpful and knowledgeable. Stacey Blake, who has performed multiple treatments on my face from filler, Botox, Dysport, BBL and laser peels, is just amazing. She is so gentle handed and always making sure you are okay during procedures. She has even went the extra mile to assist me addressing a skin issue which I didn’t even mentioned because I didn’t think there was much I could do about it. With her help I have cleared up an issue which was really affecting my daily life and I am so thankful for her help. After having had Tru Glo’s amazing staff I would never even consider going anywhere else ever for my cosmetic needs. Definitely 5 star!

Erica M

Love Everything About this Place

I just love everything about this place! It is a little pricey but it’s really worth it if you want to see real results. Maddie knows my skin better than I do and knows every procedure & product inside and out. I’d highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to take their beauty regimen to the next level.
