It all comes down to replacing tradition with technology. This is a story that has a deep impact on many industries, and the shaving industry is no exception. A long time ago, people shaved the hair off their body with a straight blade. Later, the straight blade was replaced with a multi-bladed razor head. After that time, the multi-bladed razor head was made mostly obsolete by the electric razor. With each advancement, the age-old practice of removing unwanted hair off your body became easier and easier. Today, the latest advancement in hair removal methods is laser hair removal.
Like all the innovations of old, this latest approach to eliminating unwanted body hair is truly revolutionary. Not only does it get rid of hair quickly, it is such a simple idea that those who try it never want to go back to removing unwanted body hair with the antiquated approaches they used to use.
Will Laser Hair Removal Work for Me?
One of the questions that commonly surfaces is whether or not laser hair removal will work for you. This question persists, because of how this cosmetic procedure used to be when it was first introduced as a solution for removing unwanted body hair. Originally, lasers only worked on people with pale skin and dark hair. Since that time, many improvements have been made in laser technology that made it possible for lasers to be upgraded to work on virtually any skin tone and hair color. So, even people with darker skin tones and lighter colored hair can now receive laser hair removal treatments. The technician applying the laser treatment needs only to calibrate the laser for your specific skin tone.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
Since laser hair removal is a completely non-invasive procedure, there is basically no real recovery time. At most, you are recommended to wear protective eye wear provided to you to prevent the laser from doing any damage to your vision during the procedure. Secondly, you are asked to wear sunscreen with a rating of SPF 30 or higher for a few days after the procedure is finished. This is done, because your skin will be a little sensitive after the procedure, but this is nothing to be worried about.
