When body hair is dark or coarse, it’s unlikely that you’ll want it around for when the weather warms up and it’s time for shorts and bathing suits. Shaving, plucking and waxing are the standard options for hair removal, but they require frequent amounts of upkeep, and in the long-term (a lifetime) the cost of these methods can really add up. Try to think for a moment about how many razor blades and/or trips to the salon you’ve made since you were a teenager … chances are, it’s a hard number to swallow. Laser hair removal is an excellent option for those who are tired of the time, effort, and money that shaving and waxing require over time.

Here are 3 ways that you can benefit from laser hair removal at PGOMG:

1.  Your first laser hair removal consultation at PGOMG is free

The first step to being hair free is a consultation at PGOMG. Our specialist will detail in full the procedure, costs, and potential side effects with you in person. The truth is, there is plenty of information about laser hair removal online, but an in-person consultation with our specialist will be able to put your mind at ease regarding any questions or concerns you may have about laser hair removal.

2.  Laser hair removal is virtually painless, yet very effective

Shaving and waxing have to be performed often, even daily, in order to exhibit desired results, and they also pose the risk of pain or discomfort. Shaving often results in nicks and cuts, and waxing can result in pain and skin irritation that can last up to a week for some individuals, with redness, bumps, and itching. During a laser hair removal procedure, it is unlikely that a patient will experience discomfort, but should the procedure involve an area of skin that is prone to sensitivity, PGOMG’s specialist can use a topical anesthetic to dull the potential discomfort.

Compared to shaving, waxing, or electrolysis – laser hair removal is highly effective for long-term hair removal. It is a particularly worthwhile option for those individuals who are prone to ingrown hair(s) and irritation from razor burn, plucking, waxing, and et cetera.

3.  Laser hair removal is safe

When performed by a specialist at PGOMG, laser hair removal is one of the safest procedures available for hair removal. Side effects of laser hair removal are usually minimal – some patients have experienced some redness or swelling around the treated follicle area, but these side effects actually prove that the hair follicle is responding to treatment. It’s important to discuss any side effect concerns with the PGOMG specialist during your free consultation. He or she will be able to alleviate your concerns and provide a wealth of educational material for you to review should you need it.
