Men and women choose to remove excess facial and body hair for many reasons, including social acceptance, aesthetic, hygienic and religious reasons. A number hair removal methods have been in and out of fashion over time, but the most effective to date is laser hair removal, which has seen fantastic popularity in recent times.
Traditional hair removal processes are shaving, waxing, depilatory creams and plucking or tweezing. These methods only temporarily remove hair, leaving the skin smooth but can result in unwanted reactions such as razor rash, irritation, ingrown hairs, and even scarring. In addition to these reactions they can be time consuming and must be repeated regularly to maintain results.
But time and technology have provided advances in hair removal techniques, and no other is as effective as laser hair removal. It targets 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 treated 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 a very effective treatment for ingrown hairs commonly caused by waxing and plucking.
Laser treatments can cover a large area in a small amount of time, with many people able to have a treatment during a lunchtime or on their way home from work. Most treatments take from 5–60 minutes to complete and are usually spaced at six weekly intervals.
Laser Hair Removal saves 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.
