If you’re like many women, you shave your legs about 12 times each month. That’s a lot of time and money spent on something that can easily be avoided. If you’re tired of spending time removing unwanted hair from the face and body, you should consider getting laser hair removal. First, let’s take a look at some of the methods for removing unwanted hair from the face and body and compare their results in addition to their side effects.


Tweezing unwanted hair is not only time consuming, but it can also be quite painful. While tweezing does help to remove the hair from the root, it does absolutely nothing to prevent the hair from growing back. So, you’ll spend more time removing unwanted hair this way. Redness and swelling are also side effects of this type of hair removal.


Waxing unwanted hair is another way to remove hair and offers longer lasting results than shaving. However, this hair removal technique can be quite painful and messy. The results only last a few days up to a week. You also have to know what you are doing in order to get the smooth legs and bikini line that everyone desires.


Shaving is probably one of the most popular methods of hair removal. It’s been in effect for decades. While it has a few benefits, it can end up being pretty costly. Did you know that women spend close to $10,000 in their lifetime on shaving-related products? That is quite a hit to your income for a temporary method of hair removal. You also are subject to getting cuts and razor burn, which can be painful and take away from the aesthetic beauty of smooth, hair-free legs.

Laser Hair Removal

With laser hair removal, you get to benefit from virtually no side effects. As an added benefit, the cost of treatments will actually save you money in the long-run. There are also long-term results after a few treatments, so you can save time and money while getting the smooth, sexy legs you’ve always yearned for. You can say goodbye to razor burn and stubble when you choose laser hair removal.

Now that you know of the different ways to remove unwanted hair from the body, you can make a well-informed decision on whether you want to continue utilizing these timely and costly hair removal techniques, or you can make an appointment with us at The Cosmetic Vein and Laser Center.
