There's a misconception that laser hair removal means permanent hair removal. While that may be the case for some, the only thing that continuous treatment guarantees is permanent hair reduction.
The procedure involves having laser light targeting hair follicles and damaging it in the process. This halts the hair growth process resulting in temporary hair loss. This effect may last for weeks to months, depending on how coarse the hair is. This can be done in a clinic or at the convenience of your own home. Make sure to use only the best at home laser hair removal devices for the best results.
- Relatively painless, though this depends on how sensitive your skin is
- High precision hair removal
- Speed, each electronic pulse for each area only takes a second. A whole leg can only take roughly 8 minutes to finish
- High chances of permanent hair loss in patients with fine hairs
- Most effective on high contrasting hair and skin combination. This is most effective on lighter skin color against dark hair
- Most expensive among all the hair removal treatments as it takes several sessions to finish the treatment
- There is risk of a sunburn effect or blistering is the pulse is set too high
- Sun exposure should also be avoided after treatment
This is the method that I highly recommend if you're looking for a long term hair removal solution. It may cost a pretty penny to start, but the end result is smooth skin without most of the major side effects as the other procedures.
