Laser Hair Removal in Calgary – Is it Worth the Time and Money?

hair removal calgaryIf unwanted hair happens to be a big issue for you, you have probably thought of laser hair removal in Calgary at one point or another.  It is usually women who receive this type of treatment, although men have also been known to occasionally have unwanted hair removed through laser treatment.  This is a permanent form of treatment, as opposed to options such as waxing, plucking and shaving, where the hair could grow back in just a few days’ time.  That being said, it can be expensive.  Here is an analysis of the pros and cons of laser hair removal in Calgary – is it truly worth the investment?

The main advantage of laser treatment is that it could eventually become a permanent cure to unwanted hair.  By aiming a laser beam at your skin’s dark pigmentation, the growth of hair is prevented, which could make the results, at the very least, last for an extended period of time.  Despite the use of lasers, it is mostly a painless operation.  There may be slight aches and pains in some parts of your body, but these minor discomforts do not compare to the pain involved in temporary forms of hair removal, such as waxing.  It is also quicker than the aforementioned temporary workarounds, and can be applied towards any part of the human body.  This includes the bikini line, face, underarms and chest, which are the most common applications of laser hair removal in Calgary.

There are also some downsides to laser hair removal.  While it has the potential to serve as a permanent fix, this would involve several repeat visits to the clinic in order for the effects to last a lifetime.  Your skin type may not be suited for laser treatment – especially if you suffer from sensitive skin or have issues with scarring or keloids.  In other words, laser removal isn’t for everybody.  And we should not neglect mentioning the cost either – at $300 to 400 per session, it doesn’t come cheap.  Multiply that by the average six to seven sessions it takes to make the treatment permanent, you could easily spend three thousand dollars to get rid of your unwanted hair problem.

At the end of the day, it’s your choice whether laser hair removal in Calgary is the solution to unwanted body hair or not.  Always consult your doctor before making the decision to undergo this form of treatment.
