Why Choose Laser Hair Removal Over Waxing?

Are you seeking a permanent hair removal solution that is cost effective, painless, and gentle on the skin? If so, then laser hair removal is the solution for you as it allows you to say goodbye to the hassle of frequent waxing appointments and hello to the perfection of long lasting, silky smooth skin. We are continuing our series of articles discussing the benefits of laser hair removal vs. waxing. Our previous article explored the cost comparison and pain-free advantages of hair removal laser treatment. Today, we will look two more advantages to consider.

Treatment Time

While waxing sessions are relatively quick, the need for frequent appointments can be time consuming, not to mention costly. Laser hair removal sessions typically range from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. While multiple sessions are required for optimal results, the long term time savings are significant compared to waxing. Laser hair removal allows you to achieve lasting hair reduction with fewer sessions overall.


When it comes to effectiveness, laser hair removal is known for providing long lasting, permanent results. The laser targets the hair follicles and with each session, hair becomes finer and lighter, eventually leading to permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser for all hair removal laser treatment sessions, so not only is it effective, but it’s safe.

Waxing provides immediate hair removal results, but the effects are temporary. Hair regrowth typically occurs within a few weeks, requiring regular maintenance appointments to keep skin smooth and hair free.
