Advantages of Laser Hair Removal vs. Waxing

Advantages of Laser Hair Removal

We are concluding our series of articles discussing some of the advantages of laser hair removal vs. waxing. Our previous article explored the cost and comfort aspects of hair removal laser treatment. We also discussed how laser hair removal is much less painful than waxing and how waxing requires ¼ inch of hair to be effective.  Today, we will examine two more benefits of laser hair removal.


We keep stressing this aspect about hair removal laser treatment because it really is true. Yes, it is permanent!! Waxing is only temporary, and you will need ongoing treatments throughout your lifetime. When laser hair removal is performed using a true medical laser, then you can expect an average of 8-10 sessions to achieve permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser, which is considered the industry gold standard.

Fewer Side Effects

Laser hair removal has little to no side effects, whereas waxing can result in extreme irritation, ingrown hairs, and, at worse, infection of the area treated. Hair removal laser treatment can be safely performed on all skin types, including sensitive skin.

When it comes to permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is considered one of the best hair removal treatment options in New York City and surrounding areas. Whether you want to treat a single area (i.e., chin, sideburns, etc.) or a large area (i.e., full legs laser, full body hair removal) we can help.
