This week's spotlight is Laser Hair Removal: A Smooth Solution to Unwanted Body Hair

Updated: Dec 20, 2023

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have smooth and silky skin without the constant worry of shaving, waxing, and dealing with unwanted body hair in general? Many of us would love that. This week, we are putting laser hair removal under the spotlight.

Did you know that women spend approximately 72 days shaving their legs over the course of their lifetime? That translates to about 1,728 hours! What's even more surprising is that shaving is the most hated beauty ritual among women. According to a poll, 35 percent of women said they loathed shaving their legs more than any other beauty routine, including doing their hair or tweezing their brows.

While waxing does keep the hair at bay for a longer time compared to shaving, it's not a perfect solution. Not only do you need to endure the painful sessions every 2-3 weeks, but also bear the cost of each session.

Enter laser hair removal, a more effective solution against hair growth. Although it's not a permanent solution, laser hair removal has proved its effectiveness over time. During a laser hair removal session, a laser emits a light that the pigment (melanin) in your hair absorbs. This light energy is then converted to heat, damaging the tube-shaped sacs within your skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth, giving you longer-lasting smoothness.

At Ana’s Beauty Parlour, we conduct a consultation before starting your sessions to understand the type of hair we're treating. Generally, we recommend the first four sessions be two weeks apart, followed by the next four sessions one month apart. After that, the frequency depends on the client’s skin and hair type, and maintenance sessions may be required.

How should you prepare for your session? It's vital to shave (24 hours prior), wax (48 hours prior), or epilate (48 hours before). Also, avoid sun tanning 24-48 hours before the session. After your session, we recommend avoiding any activities that make you sweat and stay away from water for 24 hours. Also, avoid sun tanning for 24-48 hours. For the best results, we recommend doing a scrub three days after your session to help remove any trapped hairs from under the skin.

Here at Ana’s Beauty Parlour, our goal is to help you achieve your desired results. We're here to guide you through this journey, every step of the way. Have you booked your free consultation yet?
