I am thankful every day that common fads are recycled every decade: mom jeans, corsets, pixie hair and my all time favourite, big bushy brows. I used to pick and pluck my eyebrows in my teens because it was super uncool to let them roam free, and I desperately wanted to fit in with my mates. My mom always told me to leave my caveman eyebrows alone, but I never listened because my need to fit in was greater than being comfortable in my own skin. I am currently living in the fad of growing out my natural eyebrows, and I am going to make it a permanent occurrence; the rest of my body hair however needs constant upkeeping. I have talked before about shaving and waxing and plucking, but none of those methods measure up to all my wasted time doing them.
Saving My Precious Time
My average time getting ready before a night out is anywhere between 75 minutes to 120 minutes, half of that on removing my body hair. While my friends were playing drinking games and catching up, I had a leg high up in the bathtub shaving my knees; I needed a better solution. I began researching professionals with a laser technician diploma
in the GTA, and many options came up but the best one I came across was on https://www.intlbeautyinstitute.com/
. All students are professionally trained in skin care and laser procedures by industry experts; those enrolled in the program will additionally be educated in laser tissue effects, skin typing, wound healing, laser and light-based therapies, and most importantly, client consultations.

Laser Tech School
Laser hair removal, just like any investment, is costly and ranges anywhere from $700 to $1000 per treatment. When I take in account how much money I have spent on razors and going to salons for waxing, it doesn’t seem that bad. Consulting a specialist that has been to laser tech school
is guaranteed to relieve any of your prior worries and they also advise on proper aftercare. Like all investments, laser hair removal will take time to show results (approximately 12 weeks depending on what area of the body you are getting lasered) and should be researched profusely prior to consultations. Laser tech courses prepare students in all aspects of laser hair removal and shapes them up to be leading industry experts.

Remove the Stress, Remove the Hair
Body hair is an incredibly personal issue that has been more accepted in recent years; there is something incredibly liberating about having the confidence to display your natural, untamed body hair. However, if you’re like me and still a little shy to flaunt your hair, laser hair removal is the best option for hairless skin. Yes, shaving and waxing your body hair is easier and much cheaper, but hair also grows rapidly and patchy. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, and a lot of the times most people can’t recognize their own strengths because they are plagues by insecurities in the way they aesthetically look; my plague is body hair and I’m going to conquer it one hair follicle at a time.
