Both men and women decide to remove unwanted facial and body hair for many reasons, including social acceptance, aesthetic, hygienic and religious reasons. Different hair removal techniques have come in and out of fashion over time, but the most efficacious so far is laser hair removal, which has experienced huge popularity in recent times.
Traditional hair removal methods include shaving, waxing, depilatory creams and plucking or tweezing. These methods only temporarily remove hair, giving smooth skin but can result in undesirable reactions such as razor rash, irritation, ingrown hairs, and even scarring. In addition to these side-effects they can be time consuming and need to be repeated regularly to maintain results.
Both time and technology have come up with advances in hair removal methods, and no other is as effective as laser hair removal. It focuses on the melanin pigment in the hair and therefore allows the laser energy to destroy cells at the very base of the hair follicle. This process progressively reduces the number of hairs in the target area, and after a number of treatments results in a permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal leaves little or no side-effects and is actually an effective treatment for ingrown hairs commonly caused by waxing or plucking.
Laser treatments are able to cover a large area in a small amount of time, with many people able to have a treatment in their lunchtime or on the way home from work. A treatment takes between 5–60 minutes to complete and are usually spaced at 6 weekly intervals.
Laser Hair Removal will save you the ongoing cost in both time and price of hair removal products such as wax, creams or razors, and will free you from worrying about daily, weekly or monthly upkeep, as it leaves the skin smooth and free from hair long-term.
