According to the U.S. Census Data, nearly 159.79 million Americans used disposable razors/shavers in 2019. If you're one of those millions, you may be feeling sick and tired of the expense, hassle, and yes...even razor burn.
If this is the case, it may be time for you to seriously look into underarm laser hair removal. Here's a simple breakdown of everything you need to know about underarm laser hair removal.
What Does Underarm Laser Hair Removal Entail?
Many people, when they hear the word "laser" in a medical context become nervous. The idea of someone using a laser on your body can be intimidating.
Fortunately, when it comes to underarm laser hair removal, the risk is very low. Licensed medical professionals, under the direction of a doctor, use a square beam of light to prevent burning that can sometimes occur with a circular beam.
These professionals direct the light to the area you wish to get rid of pesky hair. The heat from the square laser damages follicles beneath the skin so they can no longer produce hair that you must shave every few days.
The use of this square laser beneath your arms also prevents the need to double-back with the laser as a square beam can cover a larger area. This means no overlapping work and even less risk.
How Long Does it Last?
The fact is, no clinic can offer permanent underarm hair removal. However, with a basic series of anywhere from 4-8 treatments, you can be free from underarm hair growth for months.
To keep your underarms feeling smooth and hairless, it's recommended to get touch-ups once or twice a year. This compared to shaving your armpits every couple days, dealing with ingrown hairs, razor burn and more, and you're looking at some pretty care-free time spent in that spaghetti strap top.
Am I a Good Candidate for Underarm Hair Removal?
The best way to determine if you qualify for underarm laser hair removal is to ask yourself one question: Do I want to stop shaving my underarms and enjoy smooth, hairless skin for longer?
The quality and color of your hair don't affect your candidacy for underarm hair removal. However, individuals with dark or thicker hair tend to get underarm hair removal more often.
How Long Does it Take?
Underarm laser hair removal is quick and easy. If you have a free hour during your day or even a lunch break, you can be in and out. The procedure is quite short.
Once you've had the initial procedure, you only need between 4-8 follow up appointments across a 6 week period.
