What You Need to Understand When Having Laser Hair Removal

Mar 29, 2008
Most women hate to have hair on their legs and underarms. Men too are also starting to become interested in hair removal, especially those who are athletes. However most hair removal methods aren't all that effective. They are either very painful or the results aren't long lasting. However more and more new hair removal methods are being developed which give much better results.

People hate often hate the hair on their body so much that they go to salons for the hair to be professionally removed. You will notice that there are loads of beauty salons in the area you live and that offer such treatments. This just proves that there must be a large demand for hair removal. Some people who are looking for permanent hair removal have tried electrolysis which is a piece of equipment that uses electrical currents to damage the follicle's of your hair. The problem is that many of those who have tried it found the treatment uncomfortable.

So it's no wonder that when laser hair removal came onto the market that it has become very popular way to remove hair from your body. Basically it works by using a beam of light which prevents the hair from growing. Normally you can expect the results to either be permanent or at the very least, the hairs will become lighter or finer. You may feel a slight discomfort but overall the treatment is not painful.

You might think that laser hair removal is the most ideal way to remove unwanted hair from your body but you need to understand that there are some limitations to this technique. First of all you need to realize that those with fair skin tend to achieve the most desirable results. This means also, that those with dark skins tend to not get as good results. However this doesn't mean that dark skinned people can't use the treatment. All it means is that you will probably need some more treatments than those with light skin. If you discus this with your beauty therapist they will be better equipped to advise you about this.

Another thing you need to understand before having laser hair removal treatments is that it's important that you don't have a tan. This is because of the pigment in the skin so make sure that you allow your tan to fade before having laser hair removal. Although this treatment isn't the cheapest on the market, you may feel that it's worth it if it means you don't have to wax or shave again. This means you will save both time and money.
