Laser Hair Removal Is A Lasting Answer

Jan 26, 2008
Are you annoyed by unsightly hair? Some people could care less if their leg hair was long enough to braid, others go into hiding if they forget to pluck the one hair growing from their chin. If you want to banish unwanted body or facial hair, there are a few choices, some of which are more or less permanent. Probably the best is laser hair removal. Laser hair removal has gained in favor since it debuted in the 1990's, and many believe it gives the longest lasting results. As with any elective procedure, however, you should consider all of your options before undergoing laser hair removal.

Alternatives to laser hair removal are shaving (repetitive but effective and economical in the short run), electrolysis, or the use of an epilator. Electrolysis is the more uncomfortable of the latter two, and can cause damage to delicate skin. It is also a long procedure which works better for limited areas like the upper lip or the eyebrows. Eventually, with electrolysis, the hair returns. An epilator is less painful and is portable. Women often use an epilator on more sensitive skin.

Laser hair removal is a more permanent solution than any of the above. In laser hair removal, the hair follicle takes in more and more laser light energy, eventually destroying the follicle and removing the hair. Laser hair removal is more efficient than electrolysis in taking the hair off wider areas of the body, such as a man's back. It is good for small areas as well.

There are a few considerations with laser hair removal. First, it works best on people whose hair color is darker than their skin color. Also, recent attempts at hair removal or a few sessions in the tanning bed can undermine the successfulness of laser hair removal. There are few sides effects to know about, however, but they endure only a brief period of time. Some blistering and redness of the area can be expected as well as dark bumps as the follicles die. Again, all diminish soon. Finally, some hair may eventually regrow, but it is often thinner and fairer.

Laser hair removal can be an excellent choice for many men and women who are perpetually bothered by hair in embarassing places. It is usually a very affordable solution.
