There are several options available for hair removal. The top categories are laser, electrolysis, LHE Hair Removal, creams and shaving. These methods will all definitely remove hair and vary widely in their pricing and effectiveness. It is important to choose the most appropriate method for your needs and skin. This article will go over the pro and cons of getting your skin ready this summer.
Laser Hair Removal
What it does: Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Any hair growth may be targeted except around sensitive areas such as the lips or eyes.
Benefits: Most patients experience hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions. There is however a chance hair loss will not remain long term and maintenance treatments will be required.
Cons: Multiple sessions are required. Depending on the affected area the treatment may be time intensive. Those with more olive skin tone or female clients with polycystic ovaries may not be the proper candidates for this treatment.
Cost: $$$$$ (Pricey)
What it does: Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hair from the face or body. An electrified probe is inserted into the hair follicle,causing long term desiccation to the root of the hair. The hair is then depilated without any resistance.
Benefits: The FDA and the American Medical Association recognize only electrolysis as a long term method of removing hair. Meaning this is hands down the most effective way to remove hair from any body part. It works on all skin color and hair color whether its dark or blond.
Cons: Depending on the affected area, like most hair removal methods multiple treatments may be required. It is also important to choose the right service provider who is skilled, licensed and experienced.
Cost: $$$ (Reasonable)
LHE Hair Removal
What it does: LHE therapy targets the hair follicle with a low and ultra safe wave of gentle light. Once the wavelength reaches the surface of the skin the light converts to heat energy. This therapy inhibits hair growth at the root of the follicle. The treatment is fast, precise and highly effective.
Benefits: Flawless, effective, Safe, hair removal!
Cons: Several sessions needed due to the natural cycle of hair goes through. This is a fast, safe and effective therapy. The downtime is minimal and the treated site remains hair free for a prolonged period.
Cost: $$$ (Reasonable)
Hair Removal Creams
What it does: Hair removal creams work by breaking down the keratin structure of the hair follicle. After the cream is applied the hair is thinned and eventually dissolves to the point that it may be wiped away.
Benefits: Cheap and easy to do. Hair removal creams may be applied to most parts of the body. The time period of the application should be followed as advised and shaving afterwards may help to clean up any remaining hair.
Cons: The chemicals may be messy and caustic. Over application may redden or burn the skin. The hair is only treated where the hair meets the base of the follicle.
Cost: $ (Cheap)
What it does: Shaving removes hair by cutting the hair shaft where the base meets the skin.
Benefits: Cheap and easy. Almost everyone can and has shaved either their face or legs. This method is recommended in a pinch or when you don�t have time in your busy routine.
Cons: Cuts, bumps, ingrown hairs, extremely tedious and the hair goes back fast. You already know the drill! 😊
