Men and women can decide to remove unwanted facial and body hair for many reasons, including social acceptance, comfort, hygienic and religious reasons. Different hair removal methods have been in and out of fashion over time, and the most efficacious yet is laser hair removal, which has seen immense popularity lately.
Familiar hair removal techniques include shaving, waxing, depilatory creams and plucking or tweezing. These methods only temporarily remove the hair, giving smooth skin but can leave unwanted side-effects such as rash, irritation, ingrown hairs, and even scarring. In addition to such side-effects these techniques can be time consuming and must be repeated regularly to maintain the desired results.
But time and technology have come up with advances in hair removal techniques, and none is as effective as laser hair removal. It focuses on the melanin pigment in the hair which allows the laser energy to destroy the cells at the absolute base of the hair follicle. This process progressively reduces the number of hairs in the target area, and after several of treatments results in a permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal has little or no side-effects and in fact is an effective treatment for ingrown hairs commonly caused by waxing or plucking.
Laser treatments can cover a large area in a small amount of time, with 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 can 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.
