The Beards man's Guide to laser beard sculpting
Who would have thought we’d be using lasers to design and tweak the shape of our facial hair. Humans are fascinating indeed. But in all seriousness, this technology exists and it is called laser beard sculpting. It uses lasers to remove any hair from the targeted follicles. Before you run off to your dermatologist, read on to find out all you need to know about Laser Beard Sculpting and whether or not it is right for you.
Let’s face it, no matter what kind of facial hairstyle you choose to keep, it always requires constant care and maintenance. Every look from a clean shave to the mighty “bandholz” beard can only be maintained if given proper time in front of the mirror or at the stylist.
With laser treatment, the entire process can take several months. While a single session can be over in a few minutes, the complete treatment calls for 6 to eight sessions in order to guarantee permanent results. What’s more, you need to wait at least three weeks up to a month between sessions. Each session can cost anywhere from $20 to $100, but in the long run, Laser beard sculpting is by far the most affordable way to achieve hair-free skin. This is because all other methods including shaving, trimming, waxing, etc, need to be repeated on a daily, or weekly basis and the hair keeps coming back.
Finally, before going for laser treatment, one must consider the risks and side effects. For most people, this is an uneventful procedure, with little or no pain or irritation. However, in some cases, the skin can get a little red and swelling can occur. Make sure the clinic you are going to has good reviews and the job is performed by an expert since this is a highly delicate and technical procedure.
In conclusion, although it sounds like convenience, Laser beard sculpting does leave you permanently unable to grow hair. We believe a man should have the freedom to grow his beard whenever he wants, and making a permanent decision like this might be limiting. After all, in order to truly enjoy your facial hair, you need to put in that time and care.
