Laser Hair Removal

Permanent hair removal, what are your options?

Permanent laser hair removal

Many women in the West are resorting to painful procedures to get rid of undesirable facial, underarm, bikini, and leg hairs. There are several methods for getting rid of undesirable body hair regarding personal hygiene. Try a razor, depilatory lotion, wax, or even a pair of tweezers to get rid of unwanted hair. There are two significant downsides to all these methods: they are only temporary and can be harsh on sensitive skin. So, what about permanent ones?

Various methods of permanent hair removal

The reality is that permanent hair removal, whether it be on the face or the body, isn’t available. There is no single treatment that will eliminate all unwanted hair. Instead, permanent hair reduction is the accurate term. A change in the hormone balance may cause the hair follicles to be stimulated and develop new hair, which is what most hair growth is driven by. However, for smooth, semi-permanent hair-free skin, other options are available, including:

  • Electrolysis
  • Laser hair removal
  • IPL

Electrolysis hair removal solution

The Electrolysis procedure involves putting a small needle into the patient’s skin. To prevent new hair from sprouting, it uses shortwave radio or a direct current in the hair follicle. So, the hair regrowth is prevented, and new hairs are lost as a result of the damage done to your hair follicles. However, electrolysis is a time-consuming process that can generate long-term effects. We all go through a variety of hair growth cycles. Numerous sessions will be required because not all hair is in the same state at the same time.

Laser hair removal, a permanent solution

In laser hair removal treatment, the hair follicle is destroyed by a high-heat laser during the procedure. Only the area around the eyes cannot be treated with laser hair removal by a technician. On average, after the first treatment, a person’s hair will be reduced by 10–25%. Hairs that regrow, however, tend to be of a lighter shade and less dense. Hair may not regrow for months or years after it has stopped growing. The best candidates for laser hair removal are those with dark, coarse hair. To completely get rid of hair, laser hair removal usually needs a series of treatments. 4 to 6 weeks apart are the intervals between these sessions

IPL, a permanent hair removal option

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) hair removal treatment uses light radiation to precisely target and eliminates pigmented or damaged skin cells or hair follicles that have been damaged. A medical expert will use a handheld device to apply numerous wavelengths of light to the skin. Cells in the skin are damaged by this light, which causes them to decompose. When this happens, the body automatically eliminates the injured tissue from its own body. IPL is generally considered safe; however, it may not be appropriate for all patients. IPL should be avoided by those with certain medical conditions, such as those who are pregnant or taking blood thinners. IPL works better on light brown or white skin.
