Increasing numbers of women are opting for laser hair removal treatment, to escape the life-long drudgery of waxing and shaving, according to a story published today. The report by Manchester Confidential also found that laser hair removal is chosen out of necessity by those with unwanted facial hair, or those suffering with the painful problem of persistent ingrown hairs. And it is not just women opting for the treatment, men who suffer from irritation on the beard line due to regular shaving are also booking in to have it done. The online magazine cites the main reasons for undergoing a course of laser hair removal as, wanting to find a more permanent hair removal solution, to avoid shaving rash, to treat ingrown hairs, and to save money on waxing and threading in the long run. Treatment lengths differ from person to person but an average of eight sessions is said to be the optimum number for most people, with treatments on the face recommended every four weeks, and treatments on the body every six.
