Are you thinking of laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is an effective way of having permanent reduction in hair. This means less time shaving, waxing and plucking. Laser hair removal works on the principle of selective photo-thermolysis which means the laser beam has a specific target.
How does Laser hair removal work?
You must be thinking how does laser hair removal work? Laser hair removal works on a chromophore which is usually the melanin pigment within the hair follicle. The hair follicle is the target of the laser, this is the reason we ask you to shave the area before hand as the hair root is still within the skin for the laser to target. The laser beam attracts the pigment of the hair and the surrounding skin is not affected.
Shaving, Waxing, Plucking and Laser Hair Removal
Let’s talk about shaving, this is a quick and easy method of hair removal. However, it can be time consuming shaving daily, waking up early or sleeping late just so that you can shave. Regular shaving can irritate the skin, cause ingrowing hairs, shaving rash, razor cuts and nips. Being hair free after shaving is short lived …. 1-2 days later the hairs are back!
Waxing and Plucking
Waxing pulls the hair from the root resulting in longer hair regrowth compared to shaving. Waxing can cause in-growing hairs, skin irritation, itchiness and dry skin. Most of all waxing can be painful and cause skin sensitivity. You have to wait for hair regrowth to be a certain length before the next waxing session.
