Hair Removal

Hair removal refers to the deliberate removal of unwanted hair from the body.

There are several ways to remove these unwanted hair you can perform at home like shaving or that done by professionals at salons like sugaring, waxing, plucking and twist-threading.

However, most of these methods are short-time and cause at least some of the hair to grow back after a few days.

The two common methods used to reduce the growth of hair for long periods are laser hair removal and electrolysis, both of which work by targeting hair follicles located under the surface of the skin.

Laser Hair Removal
It is an increasingly popular method for long-term hair removal which generally requires at least four treatments after a gap of 4-6 weeks. The method uses mild radiation via high-heat lasers with an objective with significantly disrupt the hair growth. It can be used on different parts of the body, with legs, upper lip, armpits, bikini line and chin being the most common locations.
Electrolysis is technique backed by United States’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a permanent hair removal solution. The process is done by a dermatologist who inserts an epilator device into patient’s skin and uses shortwave radio frequencies in the hair follicles to prevent the hair growth. Like laser hair removal method, you need at least four to five follow-up appointments for desired results from electrolysis.
