{November 1, 2010}   Lazer Hair Removal

Lazer Hair RemovalHairless skin means beautiful skin. Women, all around the world, do all in their might to get rid of unwanted hair. Some women are naturally blessed with very little body hair, but some others look monstrous. Body hair on women can be a turn-off and can bust your confidence.

There are numerous methods to remove unwanted hair. Waxing, to electronic epilators, shaving blades to hair- removing creams, women are spoilt for choice. But the most annoying bit is the regrowth of hair. Thus, though your skin looks lovely and smooth after a waxing session, it grows back in all its glory within a month or so. Thus, these solutions are not permanent.

A novel development in the field of cosmetic treatment is laser hair removal. Laser has taken the world by storm and has led to many path-breaking innovations. Laser hair removal is an excellent alternative to all other forms of hair- removal and it is apparently, longer lasting.

Laser hair removal works by passing a beam of light through the skin. The laser targets dark pigment called melanin in the hair. When the beam strikes the hair follicle (where hair growth), the intense heat destroys the hair follicle instantly. A lot of people have this misconception that laser hair removal works only on facial hair, but on the contrary, it can be used on any part of the body, even where you have sensitive skin. Thus, laser hair removal is probably the most effective form of hair removing in recent times.

Some advantages of laser hair removal-

1. It is easy to use and not messy like waxing. The idea is to direct a beam of light on the skin and burn off unwanted hair.
2. It is not as painful as waxing or electrolysis. Users have compared it to a tingling sensation like a small pinch.
3. It takes less time compared to treatments like electrolysis.
4. It has very few side effects, unlike waxing or creams which could lead to rashes on the skin.
5. It is longer lasting than waxing or shaving which have to be done every few weeks.

However, laser is not free from disadvantages-

1. Laser hair removal is an expensive affair.
2. Sometimes, it may require a number of sittings.
3. Some of the claims made my laser hair removing agencies haven’t yet been proved by the scientific community.
4. Laser doesn’t work on people with red, blonde or gray hair. They may require other treatments apart from laser.
5. Laser must be very carefully used on people with darker skin tones or those who tan themselves.
6. It can be a risky process for those who have diabetes or other skin problems.

Though a very useful development, laser is not 100 percent safe. Yet, over the last two decades it has found many takers and has provided successful results. If you’re willing and can afford to spend a bombshell and remove your hair, laser is the perfect option for you.
