Have you ever thought about why most people badly want to get rid of their body hair, especially the hair on legs, hands and armpits? People striving to socialize in public with confidence and ease try to elevate their physical appeal and body image by catering to societal beauty standards. Despite having smooth, hair-free skin that you can flaunt, body hair removal entails several health benefits. The health benefits associated with body hair removal include eliminating body odor, risk of skin infections and dirt and bacteria in the hair. Body health and hygiene outweigh any other peripheral aspects, escalating the purpose of hair removal beyond appeal and beauty standards. In fact, it is also an indication of self-care, attributing to people’s physical and mental well-being.

Body hair removal was always seen as an annoying, messy and time-consuming process, especially the traditional methods like shaving, waxing and tweezing. The harder part about these methods is when hairs start growing back a few days after the treatment, meaning they are temporary. You may even get cuts and nicks on your skin. Laser hair removal does a better job as it is long-lasting, reduces discomfort and minimizes the side effects for your skin and hair.

Many of you can be apprehensive about laser hair removal. Fortunately, it involves very low risks as it does not remove your skin, and there is no recovery time, meaning you can do it during your break.


The laser hair removal procedure uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to eliminate unwanted hair. While it can delay hair growth for extended periods, it is usually not a permanent solution, and multiple treatments may be necessary for initial removal and maintenance. Laser hair removal applies to all skin types but is most effective on light skin with dark hair. Common treatment areas include the legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and bikini line. For safety reasons, laser hair removal should not be performed on tattooed skin, eyelids, eyebrows, or surrounding areas. Some benefits of laser hair removal are discussed below:

  • Quicker: Laser Hair Removal treatments are faster than you think. You might have multiple sessions for treatment, but most of them take only a few minutes. Besides, the time you spend would be less if your treatment area is small.
  • Cost-effective: Laser hair removal can save you money in the long run because it eliminates the need for razors, shaving cream, and waxing appointments.
  • Time-saving: Laser hair removal saves time because you no longer need to spend extra time shaving in the shower or going to appointments for waxing. You’ll also avoid mistakes and missed spots and have clean-shaven skin without the hassle.
  • Long-lasting: Laser hair removal provides a long-term solution, with most people experiencing permanent, lasting results.
  • Eliminates ingrown hairs: Laser hair removal is an effective way to prevent and eliminate ingrown hairs. It’s especially beneficial for people with sensitive skin who experience irritation after shaving or waxing.
  • Less painful: Contrary to popular belief, laser hair removal does not hurt more than waxing, and if your skin is sensitive, you can apply numbing creams to ease the pain.

Laser hair removal also boosts your confidence, enhances your appearance and improves your hygiene. If you are planning to do laser hair removal, it’s recommended to choose a doctor who is certified in dermatology or cosmetic surgery and has examined your skin type to reduce the likelihood of adverse effects.

Before the treatment, it’s important to limit waxing, plucking, tweezing, and electrolysis for at least six weeks to allow the roots of the hair to regrow, which the laser targets. After the treatment, your skin may look sunburned, and applying moisturizers and cool compresses can help. Treated hair will fall out over the next month, and it’s crucial to wear sunscreen to prevent temporary skin color changes.
