Both men and women are motivated to remove unwanted facial and body hair for many reasons, including social acceptance, aesthetic, hygienic and religious reasons. Many hair removal processes have come in and out of fashion over time, and the most effectual to date is laser hair removal, which has gained immense popularity lately.
Traditional hair removal processes include shaving, waxing, depilatory creams and plucking or tweezing. These methods temporarily remove the hair, leaving the skin smooth but can leave undesirable side-effects such as razor rash, irritation, ingrown hairs, and even scarring. In addition to such side-effects they can be time consuming and need to 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 focuses on the melanin pigment in the hair allowing the laser energy to destroy the cells at the very base of the hair follicle. This process progressively reduces the number of hairs in the treatment area, and after several of treatments results in a permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal leaves little to no side-effects and is actually an 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 people having treatments during a lunchtime or on the way home from work. Most treatments take from 5–60 minutes to complete and are usually spaced at 6 weekly intervals.
Laser Hair Removal can save on 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.
