Popular Hair Removal Options
The desire for smooth, silky skin and the permanent removal of unwanted excess hair. Has lead people to try many different methods, some traditional and others modern.
Non Permanent Options
Firstly, the repeatable options shaving and waxing. Both of which often leave the skin red and sore. But with waxing the hair has to be allowed to grow to at least a millimetre before the waxing works. So you’ll be hairy for at least a week while you let your hair grow!
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) systems became available in the 1990s and have been used by beauty salons for hair removal since then. Sadly the results are inconsistent. With some excellent and poor results. Many of these Salons advertise their services as laser hair removal, which is not correct as the two systems are very different. Both systems use light energy, but that’s where the similarity ends, the difference is with the technology. The laser emits a focused beam of light energy within specific wavelengths, whereas the IPL emits a random spread of energy like a light bulb.
Lasers are by far the best option as the technology is far more effective in removing unwanted hair permanently.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Most patients who have laser hair removal find that it is safe, and they achieve the desired results. Furthermore, there are no documented long term side effects of the laser. However, some patients may experience slight redness in the treatment area, but this is very rare.
The Dangers Of Cheap Machines
Unfortunately, as with any technology or product, cheap imitations find there way on to the market. And with today’s internet, this is now very common. The issue with cheap copies is that they are usually of poor quality and don’t meet the stringent safety requirements of branded patented goods.
These machines often find there way into less reputable Beauty Salons where the operator is either not trained or poorly trained.
All lasers need to be professionally maintained at least annually, and this is carried out by the manufacturer or an approved appointed agent. To ensure that the machine is operating safely and that they use genuine parts.
