Understanding Laser Hair Removal
You have always attacked unwanted body hair with your razor. It is only normal to grow up using a blade to keep the hair on your face, legs and armpits from getting out of hand. You have also used wax and chemical creams that eliminate body hair more quickly. Yet, these methods can lead to poor results even if you are more careful than most. But if you really think about it, the use of razors, wax and chemicals to get rid of body hair is kind of antiquated in our modern age. Additionally, all it takes is an unsteady hand, and your razor can scrape and cut your skin. This is never fun. Modern times call for a modern approach to managing unwanted body hair regrowth. Now is the time to shelve the outdated tools and take a more technologically savvy approach to getting rid of unwanted body hair. We’re talking about laser hair removal.
How It Works
If your goal is to eliminate unwanted hair, such as the annoying hair growth on your upper lip and chin, then laser hair removal could definitely be the way to go. For starters, a laser can do in seconds what a razor takes many minutes to achieve. A laser will target the hair on your upper lip and chin at the rate of a region the size of a quarter per second. While it takes longer to get rid of the hair off of larger regions of skin, like your back or legs, a laser still outperforms your razor in speed and efficiency. The laser is not clumsy, either. Rather, during laser hair removal, a laser uses photon energy to destroy the pigment in the hair follicle, causing the hair to go away in time. This results in smooth, hairless skin in the treatment area.
The Advantages of Laser Hair Removal
Since a laser impairs the hair follicles more with each treatment session, laser hair removal will eventually cause your hair to grow back thinner and less frequently. Your razor, your wax and your chemical creams will not be so effective in keeping hair regrowth at bay. In fact, you will find that as you continue with more and more laser hair removal sessions, you could reach a point where you’ve achieved permanent results.
