Before I go on to explain that Laser Hair Removal is one of the best available techniques for removal of hair, I think it would be fair to take a look at the other alternatives that are available in the market.
Electrolysis – In this method, an extremely thin metal needle is made to slide into the skin at the base of the hair and then with a jolt of electricity the hair follicle is burned. The metal needle does not puncture the skin if the procedure is performed correctly.
Waxing – This is a very popular method of hair removal. Wax strips are placed on the skin area from which hair is to be removed. The hair sticks to the wax and the strip is pulled, plucking the hair away from the skin. New hair does not grow back on the previously waxed for a month or two. The most negative aspect of this method is that it can be very painful. Although the pain is not long lasting, it is extreme in the moment.
Shaving – This is not a method for hair ‘removal’ because you basically cut the hair, not remove it completely. That is the reason why most of the hair that you shave will naturally grow back in some time. But it is the cheapest method for hair removal and one of the most common too.
Laser Hair Removal is a method in which the hair follicle is burned by using impulses of laser light. This method is neither instantaneous nor painless nor is it as painful as waxing or electrolysis and that is one of the best aspects of it. No medications, injections, incisions are required for the process of laser hair removal. Laser hair removal also leaves you with softer and smoother skin. Most people after shaving feel the roughness of the hair growing in a couple of days but in the case of laser hair removal, this can be avoided. Laser hair removal is a shorter process than electrolysis and also a much safer method.
The results obtained from laser hair removal are long lasting. That is because it involves burning the follicle itself. So you do not have to worry about your embarrassing hair for at least a year now. So when you come to think about it, you have a method that it painless, quick and get the job done in the best way possible, you are left with the best method for hair removal.
For some people, laser hair removal may seem expensive, but if you think about the time and money that will be saved by going ahead with laser hair removal, you will agree that the price is balanced. The cost does vary from location to location yet you cannot deny that considering the other alternatives, the price is not too much.
So if you are confused as to whether to go ahead with laser hair removal or think about some other hair removal method, I would strongly advise you to go ahead with laser hair removal.
