The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

July 18, 2019

Body hair. Its removal is desired, preferred, and even expected. Perhaps, you’re tired of shaving, and waxing has become irritating to your skin. A solid mediation between the two? Laser hair removal! Everyone’s singing its praises but, what makes laser hair removal so great, exactly? I mean, you’ve heard it’s pricey, painful, and a long process to boot. So, is it really better than traditional methods, such as shaving or waxing? 

At Nūr Medical Spa, we say enthusiastically say yes, and here are the reasons why: 


Did you know the hair on our body grows in three various stages? Yep, they’re called anagen, telogen, and catagen. Laser hair removal is most effective on the hairs in the early part of the anagen stage— when hair is actively growing. The laser heats up the hair follicle in these very early stages, preventing it from growing any further. With our highly-trained staff of medical professionals, the laser beams can target unwanted hair without damaging any of the skin around it. 


Introduced to the general public in 1997, hair removal lasers were approved by the FDA for “permanent hair reduction,” meaning the practice itself is long-term and stable. Even though it’s not proven to permanently remove all body hair, laser hair removal will permanently reduce body hair, if you remain dedicated to consecutive treatments every 4 to 6 weeks. Laser hair removal will also change the texture and color of your body hair, making it finer and lighter. 


There are so many convenient aspects to laser hair removal. First of all, it’s lightning-fast. Laser hair removal treats several hairs in a large surface area and depending on the area being treated, laser hair removal services can take anywhere from one minute to a half an hour for larger body areas. Plus, with many patients agreeing that it’s less painful than waxing, it’s been described as feeling like a gentle pinch or the snap of a warm rubber band. And of course, you don’t have to lift a finger during the entire process! Now, if that’s not convenience, we don’t know what is.
