Laser hair removal is a highly effective and popular method of permanently removing unwanted hair. The advantage of this procedure is that it can remove hair from almost any part of the body. The treatment delivers optimal results when the hair is in a growth stage; human hair typically grows in cycles. Therefore, laser hair removal treatment must also be conducted in separate four to six sessions to match with the growth cycles. On average, these sessions are spaced approximately a month apart from each other.
New advanced laser hair removal equipment helps remove unwanted hair from any area of the body. For men, the common areas are the back, chest and legs. For women, the common areas are the face, the bikini area and the legs.
The old traditional methods of hair removal have the problem of hair re-growth after a short period. At the same time, such methods have proven to be tedious and discomforting. An alternative treatment to laser is the electrolysis permanent hair removal treatment. This has been a popular alternative for many years, but in comparison to laser, it is a very slow and painful process. Electrolysis destroys a single hair follicle at one time, whereas laser treatment is able to destroy many follicles in one time. That makes electrolysis a prolonged and painful procedure.
Laser hair removal is a convenient, efficient and fast method with satisfactory results. Smaller target areas can be treated in just ten minutes or less. A larger area such as the back can be treated in under an hour, and patients can resume their normal activities almost immediately after the procedure. The results are long-lasting and the skin continues to remain soft and smooth after treatment.
Self-treatments such as shaving, tweezing or waxing are temporary, inconvenient and time consuming. Hair removal creams offer a painless and less time-consuming solution, but again the results are temporary. That makes laser treatment the best alternative by far in terms of permanent and hassle-free results.
