Why Laser Hair Removal Is So Popular
By Elise Minton Tabin , Executive Beauty Editor |
No one wants to be hairy. And thanks to modern medicine, you don’t have to be. Laser hair removal, which has been around for a number of years now, still ranks as one of the most popular beauty treatments out there, and it doesn’t look like its going anywhere anytime soon.
A new survey issued by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) says that more patients are seeking out laser hair treatments for permanent hair removal. About 633,000 procedures were performed last year—a 27 percent increase from 2013.
So why is the treatment gaining more traction than ever? The fact of convenience and simplicity. The treatment takes minutes to perform and the results it offers last much longer than any other type of hair removal method. Plus, you can even touch up your results (or even do it yourself altogether if you choose) with at-home hair removal devices like TRIA and Illuminage.
