Waxing vs Laser Hair Removal: Which Is Right for You?

Many of us battle with the tiring task of removing unwanted hair from our bodies and faces. We experiment with various methods, wishing we would have a procedure that is quick, easy and that can provide a painless hair removal experience, which can provide the longest effect.

Having hair is natural, however having it on certain body areas does not work for everyone. Hence, one must constantly maintain smooth skin regularly to feel more confident about their bodies. Armpits, face, bikini line, legs are the most common body areas, that many women opt to have little or no hair on.

When comparing waxing vs laser hair removal there is notable difference in terms of process and pain level as well as the results. In the quest to find which is the best between laser hair removal and waxing, let us look at both procedures.

Waxing or laser hair removal, which lasts longer?

Waxing typically is a temporary hair removal method and results usually last between 3 to 4 weeks, depending on genetics, hormones, certain medications, the area of the body and how much hair you can put up with. It also depends on how regularly you wax.

For long lasting results, laser hair removal is a better choice. It significantly reduces hair, and most people usually experience permanent or near permanent hair loss after several sessions of treatment. However, some may require additional sessions to maintain the effect, but not as much as you’d have to do with waxing.

Does waxing permanently stop hair growth?

Waxing does not stop permanent hair growth, instead it only removes hair temporarily by pulling it out at the root. Hair eventually grows back but with time it appears finer over time.

Is it better to get a Brazilian wax or laser hair removal?

Depending on your preferences, you can choose between a Brazilian Wax and laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is known for providing long lasting results while waxing usually offers a quicker but temporary solution. It is always advisable to consider your budget, pain tolerance as well as long term goals when deciding.

Is laser hair removal safe on private body parts?

Yes, laser hair removal is safe for private parts, including the pubic area and scrotum for males. Same applies for ladies, who do full Brazilian line.

Many people choose laser hair removal as the method of choice for hair removal on private parts, because of its long-lasting results.

It’s essential to choose a reputable medical spa or clinic, such as Dr. Stasch Clinic & MediSpa, to ensure the procedure is carried out safely and effectively.

What are the pros and cons of laser hair removal?

Among the advantages of laser hair removal include long lasting results, lesser chance of developing ingrown hairs than with waxing or shaving and precise targeting of specific body areas.

Some of the disadvantages of laser hair removal are it is costlier than other methods and you will require multiple sessions to achieve the desired result. Laser hair removal may also be uncomfortable during treatment and in rare cases the treatment may not work with certain hair and skin types.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Temporary discomfort is possible, with some redness and swelling right after the procedure. People compare laser hair removal to a warm pinprick and say it is less painful than other hair removal methods, such as waxing or threading.

In most cases pain is alleviated by using numbing cream or other cooling techniques recommended by our aesthetician.

Which one should you choose?

Choosing between waxing and laser hair removal depends on a number of variables, like your preference, budget, pain tolerance and the desired outcomes. While waxing is usually cheaper and quicker in the short term, in the long run waxing requires frequent maintenance and ends up digging into your pocket considerably.

On the other hand, laser hair removal offers long term results. While one session of laser hair removal is more expensive than waxing, after a few sessions you will not need to do frequent maintenance treatments to maintain smooth and hairless skin.
