Everybody knows that feeling: you're getting dressed up for a night out, or a fancy lunch with your friends, but there's a huge problem staring at you in the mirror. Armpit hair also known as underarm hair, it can be difficult to manage, and shaving may 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 often far too slow for the modern woman. Shaving can often leave unsightly marks and cuts, as well as increasing the risk of ingrown hairs. Waxing... Well, it's extremely painful!

Needing to go through hair reduction treatments again and again is ridiculous, but many women don't see another option. It's easy to become disillusioned with the idea of hair reduction with so many unsuitable 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, laser hair removal is a more permanent solution - but how does laser hair removal work, and how could it benefit you?


Permanent Armpit Laser Hair Removal

Let's go through how permanent armpit laser hair removal works, first. In basic terms, laser hair removal functions by destroying your hair follicles with light, or the 'laser'. The laser's energy interacts with the pigment in the hair follicles and damages the hair follicle roots, which is why this method of hair removal is much more permanent than others. It is the most effective on four areas of the body: underarm, upper lip, chin, and bikini line.

But is it right for you? There are some drawbacks to laser hair removal. For one, it may not be suitable for some people - it all 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 pigment, and melanin is also a pigment. 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, potentially waiting until Winter and Spring when you're less likely to have a tan or using a high SPF sunscreen. Naturally dark skin colors may require a special laser, but your dermatologist can work through this with you. As well as this, Bella Medspa specifically uses the Lumenis LightSheer Diode Lasers, which are at a "gold standard" in the field. They are suitable for all skin types and are some of the best lasers that a technician can use.

You should also consider whether you want the commitment of a longer-lasting, or permanent, 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 plus 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 and not longer-lasting, then other options may work better for you.

However, there are many benefits to laser hair removal, especially over the shaving method. First of all, laser hair removal lasts much longer, being a permanent or practically permanent solution. Shaving, as we all know, must be repeated many times, especially if you want to maintain your smooth skin. This can be a tedious process and you often risk small, annoying shaving cuts and ingrown hairs.

Along those lines, we come to another benefit: pain, or rather lack of pain. Laser hair removal is largely painless as the treated area is often numbed beforehand. The removal should only feel as strong as a rubber band flicked against the skin, although this will obviously differ if you opt-out of numbing the treated area. It may also feel different if you have a particularly high or low pain tolerance.

On the other hand, shaving injuries can often cause pain and stinging that can last long after you're finished shaving. As well as this, you have to look out for razor burn which not only causes a rash-like appearance but also stings and itches. Nobody likes razor burn, but plucking out ingrown hairs might be an even worse experience. It's not just the pain, either - a lot of these issues are boring and tedious to fix!

There's an easy way to avoid all of that hassle: laser hair removal. Although the success of the treatment can depend on your hair type, hair color, and skin color, the effectiveness and benefits quite heavily outweigh the negatives. When you can get a free consultation at Bella Medspa, why wouldn't you at least consider it?

How Much Is Laser Hair Removal For Armpits?

When considering laser hair removal cost, it's important to remember that this treatment won't cost the same as a single razor and it isn't 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 going through the process again and again, unlike when you need to shave almost constantly.

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

Even better, you won't be faced with large, up-front package payments or long-term monthly payment plans. You can talk it through with our friendly, experienced staff and know that you're not getting locked into an inflexible payment plan.

Bella Medspa is ready to accommodate you and work with you to sort out your underarm laser hair removal. On top of everything, we make the process easy, so you won't be left in the dark or scratching your head.

Is Underarm Laser Hair Removal Right For Me?

There are many factors to consider before you arrive at your first session of laser hair removal. If you've gone through other options like shaving and plucking, then you may already know that you need something different. A longer-lasting, permanent treatment might sound like it's perfect for you, but you shouldn't just consider the longevity of the treatment.

Skin tones can change how simple or difficult your laser hair removal may be. Unfortunately, darker skin tones run the risk of causing burns, blisters, and even scarring. An experienced dermatologist, like the employees at Bella Medspa, can walk you through your options for laser hair removal. Your safety and comfort will always be our primary focus.
