Laser Hair Removal: The Basics
With summer fast approaching, jeans and tights are being replaced with sundresses and shorts as the temperature continues to steadily increase. Although it’s nice to rid yourself of layers and start working on your tan, the decrease in clothing also means it’s time to start waxing, plucking, and shaving. But who has time to constantly be worried about whether their legs and underarms are smooth? The process of shaving and waxing can be time-consuming, which is why many women have turned to laser hair removal to achieve smooth, supple skin without the time and the hassle.
