Cosmetic Hair Removal
People have for various reasons wanted to remove their unwanted hair, and the methods have remained the same for decades until the introduction of hair removal lasers.
Before lasers, the most popular method of hair removal was shaving and still is today as most men shave daily. Waxing is another popular method of hair removal, and then there is the least popular of sugaring.
Laser hair removal is a permanent method of removing hair, unlike the other treatments. The laser will kill the hair, and it will not grow back.
What’s the Cheapest Hair Removal?
Shaving is the cheapest form of hair removal, all that’s needed is a sharp razor some water and either shaving gel or cream. This method of hair removal cuts the excess hair from the surface of the skin, leaving the hair follicle intact to grow back again often within a few hours. Another downside of shaving is it can leave the skin sore and unsightly. More sensitive areas may be prone to infection if the skin becomes irritated.
Waxing for Hair Removal
Waxing is another top-rated solution for cosmetic hair removal which is mainly carried out in beauty salons. Hot wax is put onto the skin and once cooled is ripped off taking the excess hair with it. This process damages the hair at the root but doesn’t permanently remove it. The process will need repeating every three to four weeks. This harsh treatment will leave the skin sore and red.
Sugaring Unwanted Hair
Sugaring originates from the middle east and is used to remove the hair follicle from the root, using a paste made from sugar, water, lemon juice and sometimes honey. And when dry it is ripped from the skin.
Electrolysis Removes Unwanted Hair
Electrolysis is an excellent solution for individual hairs that are either too light for the laser to remove or simply there’s just not enough of them. This solution works by passing an electric current through the hair to kill the hair at the root and like laser it is permanent.
Laser Hair Removal’s Permanent
Laser hair removal, unlike the other methods, will permanently remove the unwanted in most cases without any downtime. Imagine no more shaving or waxing!
