Have you always dreamed of being able to go to a beach without shaving, to the gym without using weights and to have beautiful silky legs without going to the salon? thanks to technology which has made these dreams possible, now you can!
Laser hair removal is a service offered by most beauty therapists in order to help somebody with their appearance. Or maybe to start a new business. The range of services available is almost endless and growing all the time.
Usually, a basic consultation is enough to determine if laser hair removal is the right method for you and its worth the small fee.
However, to be totally transparent, laser hair removal is not for everybody. If you are someone with fair skin and dark hair, the results will not be so effective. If you have darker skin or if you always have to cover up your face to hide your dark hair, laser hair removal is a complete waste of your money.
It is also important to know that laser hair removal only works on white skin. So, if you are a black man or woman you will have to go through a completely separate process called, electrolysis.
Laser hair removal therapy
The treatment is usually done in a spa or clinic and the process is completed within a few minutes.
A little redness may appear around the area that has been treated, within 24 hours. While 6 treatments are usually enough to completely stop hair growth in the area, some people require 13 treatments and some need up to 25 treatments.
Your next session
After going through the treatment for a few sessions, you will probably go for a maintenance treatment or a touch-up every 3 months.
The maintenance treatment is usually less intensive as there is usually some minor redness that occurs. Sometimes, in rare cases, you may go for more than one treatment in order to get the best results.
The main thing is to be patient and as the hair begins to grow back in the growth cycle, you will have to go for more sessions. Since many people progress slowly and one session at a time, you may only need to go for 4-5 treatments in order to get the best results.
Results will vary from person to person depending on their skin color, hair color and type as all people, regardless of skin color, have hair that reflects some pigment. The color and type of the hair is usually dependent on some factors including genetics.
As with anything, do not expect the best results to happen in one session. It may take several sessions to get the best results. There are some cases where hair growth is stopped forever but still some hair will grow back.
As with anything, do not get your expectations too high. You must be realistic and assess your own needs. There are many other ways to stop hair growth besides laser removal and it can be as simple as getting a hair free bikini line or removing unwanted hair on your legs, underarms, upper lip or face.
Health reasons, such as menopause, may require special attention when it comes to removing unwanted hair. If this is the case, you should use methods other than hair removal and cream.
There are ways to make hair removal natural and easy with razors, creams and epilators. You can dispose of it monthly at home, thereby making it more affordable and convenient.
Many women find it more convenient to shave legs and even bikini lines. Epilators are hand operated devices that are friction based. Epilators separate the hair from the root and lessen the pain by pulling the hairs out against the direction of growth.
depilatory creams eliminate hair by dissolving it at the skin surface and can be applied to any part of the body where unwanted hair is unwanted. The consistency of the cream or lotion depends on where you buy it. The ones I checked- didn’t lather too much, except in dark circles under my eyes where I got a really nasty rash. So, I left the lotion on my legs for 1:00 hours, turned around and came back for another test run, and put some lotion on my stomach to see if it got any better.
There are depilatory creams that you rub into the skin that form a thin, harmless gel that you can wipe off. Applying depilatories is really easy, you just press the bottle against your skin, wait a few minutes and you remove it.
For the underarms, you could use a razor but it can make a rash of red, or inflamed skin. Soarer legs can cause ingrown hairs. And shaving can make a mess of your legs or underarms.
Waxing is another method, though it can irritate your skin. Butlers strip of hair in a swift motion and strips again make it easy to shave those hard to reach areas.
