Laser Hair Removal vs. Other Methods

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective method to remove and/or reduce body hair.  In fact, using a true medical laser like we have at Manhattan Lasers Centers is arguably the safest method of hair removal.  When it comes to laser hair removal, New York City trusts us because we are experienced and truly care about our clients.

Let’s take a look at some common alternatives to laser hair removal to better understand why true medical lasers are one of the safest, most effective methods.


Shaving is harsh on the skin and the hair starts to come back within hours.  When shaving a large area such as your back or chest, it will often itch and feel uncomfortable as it grows back.  Experts are also noticing that shaving is not as safe or sanitary as it increases the chances of infection, especially when re-using blades.  With laser hair removal, you do not need to worry about bacteria, bleeding or infection.  And, when the area is properly treated with a true medical laser, laser hair removal and/or reduction is permanent.


Waxing is extremely painful and not permanent.  There is also a chance of cross-contamination of germs if the spatula is double-dipped.  We properly maintain and clean our medical lasers so laser hair removal with us is germ-free, safe and permanent.


Electrolysis is invasive, painful, leaves marks on the skin, is not permanent and can cause infection if the equipment is not properly maintained.  Laser hair removal was developed to replace the “older” technology of electrolysis. Medical lasers are safer, faster and more efficient.
