Rachel Stepsen

Laser hair removal of unwanted facial and body hair has proved to be quite popular. Unwanted hair on the face or body afflicts both men and women. It is an embarrassment in a largely fuzz-free society.

We are constantly bombarded with advertisements and media snippets of beautiful women with silky smooth skin and bare chest men. The pressure is tremendous to present a well- groomed look.

Removing the hair poses problems because each method of hair removal such as plucking, threading, waxing, lotions and electrolysis has its advantages and disadvantages. Laser hair removal overcomes some of the disadvantages of traditional methods of hair removal and provides a safe and lasting solution for the problem of unwanted hair.

Waxing and shaving are some of the age-old methods used to remove hair. Waxing can be painful and can cause skin irritation. Shaving encourages re-growth of hair. Moreover, the re-grown hairs are harder and darker. Hair removal creams are pain-free but they cannot be used on sensitive skin. None of the above methods provides long lasting solutions against the unwanted hair.

Electrolysis scores in this regard but it can be a painful, time-consuming and expensive method. Laser hair removal of facial and body hair can overcome these disadvantages. This is the reason why most of the renowned cosmetologists prefer laser hair removal to other methods of removing unwanted hair.

Laser removal of facial and body hair is long lasting, unlike traditional methods as waxing, shaving and hair removal creams. Laser hair removal is not painful. Most customers have described the feeling after laser hair removal to be like a tingling sensation or a small pinch.

Side effects of laser hair removal method are very rare and no visible irritation of the skin is seen for most people. The costs of laser hair removal vary from individual to individual. It is dependent on factors such as the amount of hair to be removed, type of hair growth and the area covered.

Laser hair removal of facial and body hair is safe, clean, simple and quicker than most hair removal methods. Laser hair removal can be used on any part of the body. The time required for the treatment would vary from a few minutes to a few hours.

For larger body areas, several sessions of a few hours each may be required. Laser treatment works best when the hair is in the anagen or active growth phase. This may not be the case all the time for all the hair, thus requiring more than one session. =========================================================== Find out all you need to know about permanent laser hair removal.
