The truth about laser hair removal

We have all been told or heard somewhere that laser hair removal is a permanent form of hair removal. Only takes a few appointments and your hair free! Our client Michelle, went for laser hair removal for 1 year (12 visits) @ $150 per visit. After a full year of lasering, you would think no more hair! Unfortunately that was not the case in Michelle’s experience. After a full year of treatments her hair still grows in thick and black like nothing was done to the area! We here at L.A. Sugaring did a bit of research ourselves.

We learned that they say you need a minimum of 7 appointments before the hair is permanently gone (must shave area before each appointment) and you usually have to wait 3-8 weeks between treatments. Sounds great! 7 treatments and your hair free!! However the risks and recovery definitely out weight the rewards (if you get them)

There is a chance of burning if the laser isn’t set right or if the technician isn’t fully trained.
Even if the Technician is fully trained there are still risks of burning of the skin, discoloration, purpura or even infection!! I’m sorry but if I want my hair removed (which is painful enough) I really don’t want to run the risks of my legs or any other part of my body looking worse without hair than with hair!!
After the procedure you will be given ice-packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions or cold water to ease the discomfort. Can you say OUCH?!?! AND up to 2 days after the procedure, the treated area will feel like it’s sunburnt. It takes a month for the hair to fall out, and you must wear sunscreen to help prevent changes in the color of hair being treated. Other potential side effects, swelling, redness and scarring.

Now let’s compare lasering with sugaring…. With Sugaring, out of all those side effects, you may see redness or hiving. No risk of infection, no feeling like you are sunburnt AND as long as you are regular with sugaring the hair will STOP GROWING. You may need some maintenance, however you will significantly notice less hair growing back! When you are sugaring, you don’t have to do anything to prepare for your appointment…. We would prefer the only thing you do to the area in between appointments is Exfoliate! One appointment a month, and with the VIP card up to 50% savings (you could potentially get 7 Brazilians for the price of 1 Laser appointment)…. Sign me up!!!

So before you decide to go and spend lots of time and money on lasering, give us a call. We would be glad to answer any questions you may have about sugaring!!
