Shaving, waxing, plucking and depilatory creams are all common ways to get rid of unwanted hair, but they all come with their downsides.

Laser hair removal brings with it a whole host of advantages over traditional hair removal methods, including:
- Speed – Each pulse of the laser can treat a relatively large area at once and takes a fraction of a second to complete. The process is so quick that smaller areas can usually be fully treated in as little as a few minutes.

- Convenience – Laser hair removal is a quick and easy treatment that can easily fit into your schedule. Because it doesn’t require any downtime after treatment, you can also go right back to your regular routine once your session is finished.
