For most warm-blooded creatures, a layer of fur provides much-needed insulation and protection against the elements. But for your average, 21st-century human being, unwanted hair represents little more than a chore. Keeping up with rapid hair growth on your legs, chest, back, bikini line, or upper lip can quickly become a losing battle.
The money and time we invest in waxing and shaving each month could be used better elsewhere. So, what solutions does the present moment offer beyond the next hot razor subscription service or the waxing salon that plays a little rough from time to time? For unwanted hair just about anywhere, Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery offers a truly sci-fi solution: laser hair removal.
But what are the benefits of laser hair removal? How can it literally improve your quality of daily life with just a handful of treatments? Let’s take a deep dive into the primary and secondary advantages of going hair-free more days on average in 2023!
The Many Benefits of Laser Hair Removal in 2023

Few words shock the senses quite as much as the word “permanent.” Even so, there’s no other word to describe one of the more promising outcomes of laser hair removal.
Your eyes, hair, and skin receive their color from a naturally occurring pigment called melanin. But the slight difference in the color of your hair and the color of your skin is enough to empower the laser hair removal procedure to create permanent results.
Different colors absorb light at different rates. Of course, light is energy, and energy is heat. By heating up your hair shaft, follicle, and bulb, laser hair removal stands an even chance of destroying the hair bulb itself, resulting in a permanent reduction of hair growth in the treatment area.
Slower Growth & Less Visible Hair
Laser hair removal may not be capable of permanently destroying every hair bulb after one treatment, but in all honesty, it doesn’t really have to. At best, when you shave, you’re merely clipping the hair to the height of your skin. Waxing claims to pull hair out by the bulb, but does so painfully and unevenly.
Meanwhile, the thermal energy created throughout the laser hair removal process drastically stunts hair growth in the treatment area. After even one session, your hair should grow back much slower than before. When it does grow back, hair is often shorter, thinner, and lighter in color, leading to less visible impact. Because hair goes through a natural cycle of shedding, multiple treatments are recommended to catch as much hair as possible. The laser needs to catch the hair follicle in its mature state when the darker hair takes up the greatest amount of energy.
The math on laser hair removal is pretty simple. Multiply the time you spend shaving by the days you spend shaving each month, and you’ll get a surprising number.
For instance, if you spend 10 minutes shaving in the shower on weekdays alone, that’s 50 minutes a week. Over the course of a month, that adds up to 3 hours and 20 minutes! Over a year, that’s 40 hours of your life dedicated to nothing but carefully guiding a razor blade over your skin and hoping you don’t nick yourself.
It won’t stretch your imagination to figure out what you might do with an extra 3 hours every month. Laser hair removal gives you that time back to do whatever you please.
By some estimates, women may spend upwards of $10,000 on shaving products in their lifetime. Despite the popularity of razors-by-mail, or the hottest new subscription service promising the best and longest-lasting blades, it’s not hard to picture how all those creams, gels, razors, and razor handles add up over even the course of a single year. If time is money and money is time, then laser hair removal gives you more of both.
Less Chance of Ingrown Hairs
Ingrown hairs are a constant challenge without an easy or obvious solution. No matter which you prefer—waxing or shaving—your chance of ingrown hairs may not seem to change much. And while waxing does have the edge over shaving in this department, it’s far from a foolproof way to prevent ingrown hairs.
Laser hair removal, on the other hand, drastically reduces the frequency of ingrown hairs, painful bumps, and even possible infections. Laser hair removal could be the safest and most effective way forward if you’re especially prone to ingrown hairs.
