Remove Unwanted Hair: Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Path 270

Out with the old and in with the new—traditional hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, and tweezing are quickly becoming relics of the past. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, around 757,808 laser hair removal procedures were performed in the United States in 2020 alone, with women accounting for 84% of these treatments. Forget the nicks, cuts, and irritation often caused by razors or the painful aftermath of waxing. Especially for those tricky spots like the back, laser hair removal offers a seamless and practically pain-free way to achieve smooth, hair-free skin across any part of your body.


Laser hair removal isn’t just versatile—it’s practically all-encompassing when it comes to the areas it can treat. This method can rid hair from delicate facial regions like the upper lip and sideburns to larger body areas such as the back and legs. Laser hair removal is uniquely adaptable to all skin tones, employing a range of laser wavelengths that can be precisely matched to the skin’s color and hair’s texture. This customization extends to even the most sensitive zones, like the bikini area, where precision is very important (and welcomed.)

Precise and Effective

Laser hair removal’s precision stems from its use of concentrated light energy, which is directly absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. This absorption heats the follicles to a point where their ability to regrow hair is significantly impaired. By targeting each follicle individually, the laser ensures that results are not only effective but also remarkably consistent across the treated area.

Each session, typically lasting 12 months, further weakens hair growth, leading to a reduction over time. For many, this means a dramatic decrease in hair growth and, in some cases, permanent hair reduction.

Additionally, the precision of laser technology helps avoid damage to the surrounding skin, which is often a risk with less targeted removal methods like waxing or electrolysis. This targeted approach makes laser hair removal a standout choice for those looking for a long-term solution to unwanted hair, delivering both efficacy and precision in every session.


Let's be real: shaving and waxing are the time-suck twins of grooming. If you've ever wished you could hit 'snooze' on your hair removal routine, laser hair removal is your dream come true. By zapping away hair growth at its source, these treatments stretch out the time between those endless shave sessions. What does that mean for you? More time to sleep in, pick up that yoga class you’ve been eyeing, or even hit ‘yes I’m still watching’ on your latest Netflix obsession. Say goodbye to daily hair battles and hello to a few extra hours of doing, well, anything else.

Reduced Ingrown Hairs and Irritation

Say goodbye to the irritation and ingrown hairs commonly caused by traditional hair removal methods like shaving and waxing. Laser hair removal offers a cleaner, more precise solution by targeting hair at the root. This method not only helps to reduce the occurrence of ingrown hairs drastically but also minimizes skin irritation associated with repetitive shaving or waxing. Laser hair removal also reduces the risk of related infections and scarring. While this may not be a problem if you are young and healthy, it can be a problem once you reach your senior years or have a compromised immune system. By having laser hair removal treatments, you can ensure you won't expose yourself to the possibility of infection from shaving later in life.

Safe and Comfortable

Laser hair removal is not only effective but also exceptionally safe when performed by qualified professionals like the experts at Impressions Face + Body. It's an FDA-approved procedure, ensuring it meets strict health standards. While your big sister may have complained about the early days of laser hair removal, modern laser devices are equipped with advanced cooling mechanisms, which play a significant role in enhancing patient comfort. These help to soothe the skin as the laser does its work, significantly reducing any discomfort during the process.

Long-Term Cost Savings

While shaving might seem like a budget-friendly option for hair removal, the costs can quickly add up. Think about it: razor cartridges, shaving cream, after-shave lotions, and those latest trendy gadgets don't come cheap, and you'll need them consistently, year after year. When you calculate these expenses over time, adjusting for inflation, the total can be staggering.

If you have had enough of shaving and are ready to reap these benefits for yourself, laser hair removal may be the right option for you. Schedule an informative consultation at Impressions Face + Body in Chicago.

Laser hair removal offers more than just smooth skin; it provides a profound sense of freedom and convenience, eliminating the daily hassle of shaving or the regular appointments for waxing. This can significantly boost your confidence, knowing that you can enjoy silky, hair-free skin year-round without any effort.
