Laser Hair Removal Certification

certification laser hair removalWhat does laser hair removal certification have to do with athletes? You might be surprised to hear it, but quite a lot. These days, the world of sports is bigger than ever. And, in addition to staying on top of their game, competitors are always looking for that extra edge.

Even the littlest change in diet can go a long way on the track. But, many athletes have started thinking outside of the box. So, what’s most important, and better yet, how. That is, what changes are athletes making to bring home the W?


That’s really what it’s all about now-a-day. Athletes looking for that edge are willing to make minor adjustments, even micro adjustments. Moreover, there’s really no such thing as “that’s crazy” especially when it comes to new technique.

Introducing variety normally means changes at the gym or kitchen table. But, that’s not always the case. Especially when it comes to supplements and new training technology, “better ways to do it” come about frequently. Occasionally, there’s multiple trend-y diets that gain traction every year.

New Techniques

So, where does all the new ‘stuff’ come from? Well, it’s hard to say exactly. Sometimes, Reddit is responsible, other times, tips and tricks come from a blog post. Regardless, we’d like to think at least some of these ideas come from science.

Athletes and Lasers

We like to think lasers are only for show. But, the facts beg to differ. Athletes have started seeking laser hair removal treatments to better their performance. Indeed removing hair with a laser seems like a micro adjustment, and it may just be. But, before we get carried away with criticisms, let’s look at who’s using it.


Swimmers have been shaving for awhile now, that’s no surprise. And, there’s no doubt friction plays a huge role. But, does having hair really matter that much?

For starters, swimmers are always fighting friction while pushing through the water. Without it, swimmers wouldn’t really have a sport. So, when it comes to reducing friction, hair removal is obvious choice to make in any water sport.


Hair reduction and lifting go way back. However, unlike swimming, athletes here are looking for a different competitive edge. That’s because body builders are graded on a purely aesthetic level. For example, a hairless and tanned body shows a lot more definition than someone who’s not.
