Both men and women choose to remove excess facial and body hair for many reasons, including social acceptance, comfort, hygienic and religious reasons. Numerous hair removal processes have been in and out of fashion over the years, and the most effective yet is laser hair removal, which has gained massive popularity lately.
Traditional hair removal techniques are shaving, waxing, depilatory creams and plucking or tweezing. These methods temporarily remove the hair, giving smooth skin but can leave unwanted side-effects like rash, irritation, ingrown hairs, and even scarring. In addition to these side-effects these techniques can be time consuming and must be repeated regularly to maintain the results.
But time and technology have resulted in 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 cells at the 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 can actually be an effective treatment for ingrown hairs commonly caused by waxing and plucking.
Laser treatments are able to cover a large area in a small amount of time, with many people having a treatment in their lunchtime or on the way home from work. Most treatments take 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.
