In a nutshell the cost, the pain and possible injury to your skin, and no ends and no results with other abrasive methods such as shaving, waxing, cream depilatory, epilators, or electrolysis. Some of these methods are very painful and they can cause cuts, bumps, burns, and darkening (hyperpigmentation), and laxity to your skin over time. Laser hair removal targets the hair at the root and destroys the root and gives you more permanent results with almost no pain or near painless. All you will experience is a rubber band mild snap, or a transient heat, or a tingling sensation on your skin which goes away instantly. Your skin will be smooth and hairless, and you will love how it feels with no razor cuts or bumps or ingrown anymore. You can finally show off those pretty legs and arms with more confidence!
