Increasing Popularity of Laser Hair Removal

Whether it’s the emphasis on looking your best, or the importance of beach culture, more and more men and women are opting for laser hair removal from our Tampa practice. The latest statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) shows that Florida is not the only state seeing these changes. In fact, the rest of the nation is becoming more committed to the idea of laser hair removal as well.

Hair Removal on the Rise

Looking at the numbers from ASPS, laser hair removal remains in the top five most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. The total number of laser hair removal patients increased four percent from 2011 to 2012. The continued popularity of laser hair removal has added up to a total increase of 52 percent from 2000.
 
The benefits of laser hair removal are very clear: the procedure offers a safe, permanent solution for eliminating unwanted hair growth. Lasers are less painful than electrolysis, and can treat a much larger surface area in one sitting as well. When looking at numbers long-term, laser hair removal is far less expensive than waxing or even shaving, plus offers permanence that these other methods can’t.

Investing in Yourself

Regardless of your reasons for wanting laser hair removal, investing in yourself is something that will never go out of style. Whether wanting to eliminate unwanted hair completely, or thin out a few areas for a more pleasing aesthetic, men and women in Tampa are turning toward laser hair removal as the ideal solution.
