Laser Hair Removal – The Ins and Outs

One of the many things we cannot control when it comes to our bodies is hair growth. We can improve it by eating right and nourishing the hair we’ve got, but when it comes to where it grows, the body has a mind of its own. How else would you explain the sudden hair growth on the chins of 50-year-old women? The hair on the back of a 30-year-old man?

Be it as it may, unwelcomed hair keeps popping up in unwanted places, and we spend much of our precious leisure time making it go away. Methods of hair removal exist in every society. Most resort to the simple threading method, where a few threads are tightly wound, separating and snapping back together gathering all the hair in its wake. This method was used in Japan and Armenia, Poland and Morocco. The pain? Never mind that.

So we moved on to quicker methods like waxing and shaving. Think about it for a moment. Who but a woman will let hot wax be poured so close to her private and most delicate parts? Who

re supposed to suffer for their beauty. What’s a little pain here and there? Then there are the tweezers. Good and not too painful system of hair removal, for small areas, but a whole leg? And a back? The time it’ll take…but a woman will have it on her upper lip? Shaving encourages growth and leaves a stubble. Electrolysis, where they insert small needles to the core of the hair and shock it to death, requires time, patience and a high tolerance for being uncomfortable. You also have to come back over and over because they can only work on so many hairs in one session. And then – eureka! Finally, there’s an answer to our prayers: Laser Hair Removal.

Laser hair removal is the answer to all the other methods. The comfort level is high – no pain at all, and it’s fast because you treat a whole area at a time, not individual hairs. The accuracy is high – you target only the places you want the hair removed from and it is very effective. Once the laser hair removal probe treated it – the hair does not come back. But it’s a laser, aren’t those dangerous? No, they are not. Not in the doses emitted by those machines. It should still be supervised by someone who knows what he’s doing, a licensed professional. Would you want to go to a doctor’s office and pay doctors fees to have your hair removed?
