Being a teen isn't easy...and you're definitely probably tired of constantly having to shave or wax unwanted facial or body hair? If so, you may be wondering if laser hair removal is right for you.
Before plunging into making an appointment, let us first break down everything for you so that you can make the smartest decision with your family:
First, let's talk about the most important thing...hormones.
If you're a teenager, it's likely that your body is going through some changes, including that annoying increased hair growth that brought you here to the first place.
As much as you might hate science, this increased hair growth is due to the influx of hormones that occur during puberty.
Now, these hormones that are causing your increased hair growth will eventually level out, but there is no way to know when or where, and it may even take several years for this to happen as everyone's experience with this is completely unique (Yes, that's the beauty of being human).
Therefore, before really getting serious about laser hair removal, check in with your primary doctor and get a hormone analysis to check your levels of hormones to simply make sure there is nothing out of the ordinary.
We've now talked about what is outside of your control, let us now talk about what is in your control, which is the combined commitment of time and money.
While laser hair removal can be a convenient and effective option, it's important to understand the commitments involved before diving in:
Let's us now talk about money. Laser hair removal simply is not cheap, especially if you are looking to do a lot of different areas. Laser hair removal can be a pricey endeavor, especially if you need multiple treatments to achieve your desired results. It's important to consider your budget and whether or not laser hair removal is a financially feasible option for you.
"But wait, I found a really good deal for laser somewhere else!?". Think again. Laser hair removal is NOT only about price. You have to realize that this is a serious treatment, and in the wrong hands you might end up either spending more money than expected due to ineffective results, or even scarier, end up damaging your skin permanently. Ouch!
But it's not just the financial commitment that you need to consider. Laser hair removal also requires a time commitment. You'll need several treatments to achieve your desired results, and these treatments are typically spaced out over 4-5 weeks. This means that you'll need to carve out time in your schedule to make it to your appointments.And what about when you go away to college or have a busy work schedule? Laser hair removal requires consistency, so if you're not able to stick to a regular treatment schedule, it may not be the best option for you.
Oh, and let's not forget about the sun. Laser hair removal makes your skin extra sensitive to UV rays, so it's important to avoid direct sunlight and to use sunscreen regularly. This can be a tough commitment for anyone, but especially for teens who may be used to spending long hours outside and constantly traveling with their family.
So, is laser hair removal right for you? It really depends on your personal preferences and budget. Laser hair removal is truly a convenient and effective option for reducing unwanted hair, but it's important to be realistic about the time and financial commitment involved.
