According to the New World Encyclopedia, self-esteem or self-worth refers to a person’s subjective appraisal of himself or herself as intrinsically positive or negative. Self esteem can be specifically attributed to many different dimensions of one’s view of themselves, whether its beauty or one’s view of their worth as a human being. Living in an era where the value of one’s appearance is paramount can create a complex in large groups of individuals as to what is beautiful and acceptable. Lets face it, for any man or woman, comparing themselves to the model on the cover of Vogue is entirely unattainable. Each one has a perfect figure, perfect skin, beauty that is breath-taking, and absolutely no visible hair in any unwanted areas. Unfortunately, what is not present is a warning label that reads “these photos have been professionally altered; what you see is not real!” Therefore we grow up and constantly grovel about the imperfections that we see in ourselves and others. Honestly, how many people can say they have not personally commented negatively on some woman’s mustache or a man’s ‘ware-wolf-like’ appearance?
Many people constantly seek ways to remove this unwanted and embarrassing hair through methods such as cream depilatories, waxing, threading, shaving and electrolysis, which don’t always give the desired results and can often leave the skin red, bumpy, and irritated. However, laser hair removal effectively rids the skin of ghastly ingrown hairs and creates a smoother, softer appearance. Laser hair removal is the fastest growing and most popular means of ridding unwanted body hair and proves to be extremely effective for most skin types. It is an easy and virtually pain-free way for men and women alike to permanently reduce hair in these sometimes terribly embarrassing areas resulting in a better self image and overall quality of life. In this economic climate, many worry about cost of procedures like laser hair removal as compared to other more painful and less effective treatments which require routine maintenance. However, in the long run, you will actually be saving money as well as time. At Avosant Beverly Hills, we offer the most competetive and best prices in town. With our knowledgeable staff and expert nurse, we will be sure to get you going in the right direction to achieve the most satisfactory results. On average, people only need 6 to 8 treatments, as compared to monthly maintenance with other forms of depilation, giving you a lifetime of results. In a society where perfection can be extremely costly and entirely unattainable, a simple procedure like laser hair removal creates a positive self image that is ultimately priceless.
