Everyone knows the feeling: you're getting dressed for a night out or a fancy lunch with your friends, then you notice a problem in the mirror. Armpit hair, also known as underarm hair, can be difficult to manage, and shaving can feel like an endless battle.

When your hair growth fights back against waxing and unwanted hair just keeps returning, what can you do? Many options are costly yet ineffective, and they're often far too slow for the modern woman. Shaving can also leave unsightly marks and cuts and increase your risk of ingrown hairs. Not to mention, waxing is extremely painful!

Purchasing hair reduction treatments over and over again is ridiculous, but many women never learn about other options. It's easy to become disillusioned with the idea of hair reduction when there are so few effective options available.

Luckily, there is a solution. Welcome to the world of laser hair removal. Underarm laser hair removal could be your saving grace if you find yourself constantly struggling with unwanted hair growth under your arms. Instead of being a quick fix, llaser hair removal is a more permanent solution. But how does laser hair removal work, and how could it help you?


Permanent Armpit Laser Hair Removal

First, we need to understand how permanent armpit laser hair removal works. In short, laser hair removal destroys your hair follicles with a concentrated light beam, or "laser." The laser's energy interacts with the pigment in your hair follicles and damages their roots, which is what makes this method of hair removal permanent. It's most effective on four areas of the body: your underarm, upper lip, chin, and bikini line.

But is it the best procedure for you? There are some drawbacks to laser hair removal. For one, it may not be suitable for some people. Its efficacy depends on your skin type and, more specifically, how much melanin is present in your skin. Darker skin can make laser hair removal more difficult since the laser targets pigments like melanin. On the other hand, dark hair actually makes someone an ideal candidate for a laser hair removal procedure.

For this reason, you should try to limit your sun exposure before laser hair removal and wait until winter or spring when you're less likely to have a tan. Naturally dark skin colors may require a special laser, but your dermatologist can craft a custom procedure for you. Bella Medspa specifically uses the Lumenis LightSheer diode lasers, which are considered the gold standard right now. They are suitable for all skin types and are some of the best lasers available to today's technicians.

You should also consider whether you want the commitment of a longer-lasting treatment. Although laser hair removal treatment is not completely permanent, your body hair won't grow back properly for quite a long time. This is a boon for most women, but you should consider whether regrowth is important to you. If it is and you would prefer a method of hair reduction that is less permanent, then there are other routes available to you.

Still, there are many advantages to laser hair removal over shaving. First of all, laser hair removal lasts much longer and can be a permanent solution. Shaving, as you know, gets repetitive, especially if you want to maintain smooth skin. It can be a tedious process that often risks small, annoying cuts and ingrown hairs.

Another benefit of laser hair removal is the lack of pain associated with the procedure. Thankfully, laser hair removal is largely painless since the treated area is usually numbed beforehand. The removal just feels like a rubber band being flicked against your skin, though the sensation can be more uncomfortable if you opt-out of numbing the treated area. It may also feel different if you have an abnormal pain tolerance.

On the other hand, shaving injuries can often cause pain and stinging that can last long after you're finished shaving. On top of that, you have to monitor the area for razor burn, which can cause a rash-like appearance, sting, and itch. Nobody likes razor burn, but plucking out ingrown hairs might be an even more painful experience. And beyond the pain, a lot of these issues are tedious to fix!

There's an easy way to avoid all the hassle: laser hair removal. The success of the treatment can depend on your hair type, hair color, and skin color, but its effectiveness and benefits clearly outweigh its drawbacks. You can get a free consultation at Bella Medspa, so why not consider it?

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal for Armpits Cost?

When considering laser hair removal cost, it's important to remember that this treatment won't cost you the same amount as a single razor or the equivalent of a waxing session. When you set up your treatment plan, you're preparing for a permanent solution to hair reduction with minimal side effects. You won't be experiencing the process again and again, unlike shaving.

When you recognize the benefits of laser hair removal after your first treatment and experience the painless nature of the process thanks to numbing, you'll realize that the cost of laser hair removal is minimal. With affordable, pay-as-you-go sessions, Bella Medspa's laser hair removal service is easily worth the price.

Even better, you won't face hefty up-front package payments or long-term monthly payment plans. You can discuss prices with our friendly, experienced staff and be confident that you won't get locked into a rigid payment plan.

A longer-lasting, permanent treatment might sound like it's perfect for you, but you should consider more than just the treatment's longevity.
