It has become a very common need in the modern person to find it necessary to remove hair on some part of the body.
For many ladies, they find hair unattractive or undesirable in all sorts of places and must be removed: arms, legs, eyebrows, upper lip, armpit, and the bikini line.
Several methods are available to the individual for the removal of hair. For the majority of these procedures, the removal is temporary, as in, tweezing, hair removal creams, shaving, etc. Other options can be quite uncomfortable or excruciating depending on how sensitive the skin. These procedures must be repeated at frequent intervals. If the hair grows fast, the procedure may have to be done more than once a day.For permanent hair removal that will pose the least discomfort and produce admirable results, you should consider removing the unwanted hair using lasers. This is a fairly new procedure that is very effective and has become popular.
Review the following paragraphs to give you and idea on what laser hair removal is and how you could benefit from using on your unwanted hair.
Removal of hairs by laser has had the approval of the FDA as early as 1998. While earlier models caused a lot of pain and were quite slow, the current models are fast, efficient and cause less discomfort.
The laser works by penetrating the skin to reach the follicle. The absorption of the laser by the follicle suppresses and eventually stops hair growth. This means therefore that the length of treatment will be determined by the skin pigmentation. The darker the skin the longer the process will be as more energy will be required to penetrate the skin. It is important therefore that the doctor you go to has the experience and expertise in attending to the procedure on your type of skin and that he or she would recommend if you need to avail or perform laser hair removal for any skin color.
-The procedure does not come cheap. You should expect to fork-out from $100-$500 per visit. The darker the skin is, the higher the cost as more sessions will be required. The location of the treatment facility or the reputation of doctor will have a bearing on the fees, expertise notwithstanding.
-Hair growth is cyclical, consequently, for the procedure to be effective, many sessions will be needed so that the treatment can be performed to each hair growth cycle.
-You would be wise to exercise the greatest caution in selecting the doctor or facility to carry-out the operation. While there will be cost implications, the risks may well justify your selecting an expensive establishment where you are likely to receive the best care.
A good doctor or medical facility will also serve you best in addressing any discomfort resulting from the procedure.
