For hair removal, waxing is tried and true and has been done for many, many years now, but today, all the talk is about laser hair removal! So which should you get? What are the benefits of each? We’d like to help you make your decision, so here’s Seacoast Rejuvenation Center’s laser hair removal vs waxing Q&A!
Q: What is the difference between laser hair removal and waxing?
A: Both of the hair removal methods are effective, but there are some major differences, like the process itself. With waxing, hot wax, an applicator, and a fabric strip are used, so it’s pretty simple. With the proper technique, waxing will pull the hairs from the hair follicles, resulting in smooth skin for several weeks. However, the follicles remain intact beneath the skin.
With laser hair removal, a high-powered laser actually disrupts the roots and follicles of the hairs. When follicles are disrupted, the hairs that regrow from them will be much finer and more easily treatable in the future. With regular treatments, it’s possible to actually destroy hair follicles to prevent hair from regrowing at all! Results can last for many months or even years, especially with maintenance treatments.
Q: What are the benefits of laser hair removal? What about waxing?
A: The big benefit of laser hair removal over waxing is that laser actually disrupts and destroys hair follicles, whereas waxing doesn’t. This means that with laser, results last longer and can eventually become permanent! There are still reasons to consider waxing, though, like how affordable it is to do.
Here’s a list of the benefits of waxing:
- It’s much less expensive for a single session
- Effective for all skin types, skin tones, and hair types, unlike laser
- Waxing can be done at home (it’s best to have it done by a professional, though)
- It’s safe
- Instant results
The following is a list of the benefits of laser hair removal:
- It can be less expensive and more cost-effective in the long-term, as results last longer
- Doesn’t hurt like waxing does
- Laser disrupts and destroys hair follicles to prevent hair from regrowing
- You don’t need to let hair regrow like you do with waxing (because the wax needs something to grip onto)
- Longer-lasting results and even permanent results
- Sessions are quick and easy
- Can be done for any area of the body
Consider the benefits we listed to see whether one treatment would be better for you over the other.
Q: Is laser hair removal better than waxing?
A: This depends on which of the benefits you care more about. Waxing offers affordability, accessibility, and instant results, while laser offers longer lasting and even permanent results, as well as versatility and long-term cost-effectiveness. You’ll have to weigh the benefits we listed above and go from there, or we can help you make a decision here at Seacoast Rejuvenation Center! Connect with us today.
