What Are The Pros & Cons of Laser Hair Removal vs. Waxing

Laser Hair Removal West Palm Beach

When it comes to hair removal there are many different options for you to choose from; however, laser hair removal and waxing have seemed to come out as two of the more popular methods. These methods are very similar in that they both are considered a cosmetic procedure and need to be done by a specialist for ideal results. These two methods also require waiting for a significant length of time before being able to go into your next session. At Beaute Therapies we offer both methods and know that picking between the two can be challenging, which is why we have decided to present you with all of the pros and cons of both options so that you can best decide what to do next time you come in and see us. Regardless of what service you decide between, both will provide you with your goal of smooth, silky, and hair-free legs, arms, underarms, etc.

Laser Hair Removal Pros

Laser hair removal boasts many benefits that waxing simply cannot provide. While yes, you have to wait 4-6 weeks in between your waxing appointments and 6 weeks in between your laser hair removal appointments, these periods of waiting are much more different than they appear. Your waxing appointment wait time is less, but you will have to do this for a large chunk of your hairless life. When you go through with laser hair removal you wait 6 weeks between each session, but once you complete 7-9 sessions you are hairless for basically eternity. You may have to occasionally come in for touch-ups throughout your life but you will, for the most part, be done with sessions. This also adds up to be cheaper in the long run with one upfront cost instead of paying each time you go into a waxing appointment.

Laser Hair Removal Cons

With the pros always come the cons. Many different people do laser hair removal, as services to others, but sometimes these people are not professionals and do not have the authority to do the service. This can be dangerous as laser hair removal deals with the skin being exposed to the hair lasers. Your laser hair technician should also supply you with sunglasses to protect your eyes; if they do not do this you are only harming yourself from the treatment. The process is also quite long with 6 weeks in between each appointment. This means you have to schedule yourself accordingly so as not to miss this appointment.

Waxing Pros

Waxing is a hair removal tactic that has some pros that convince many to use it as a hair removal method. Some of these pros include quick appointment time and long-lasting results. Waxing is a generally fast cosmetic treatment as the process of it is applying wax when it’s hot and quickly yanking the wax and hair off. This is usually done with large strips of paper so that large areas can be done at a quick pace. The results of waxing can also last up to 6 weeks so the patient can enjoy that time being hair-free whereas with laser hair removal you still need to shave or wax in between sessions until you are farther along in your sessions.

Waxing Cons

Waxing can provide great results but it’s sadly done at the cost of your skin. Waxing has been known to cause wrinkles in the long run, drastically reducing the appearance of the skin. This occurs because of the constant pulling on the skin when the wax and hair is taken off. This pull of the skin is also damaging to those who have skin on the more sensitive side. All in all, waxing is not for everyone and is more of a short-term benefit rather than a long-term benefit.
