Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal has been a tiny industry in itself since the late nineties. It wasnt widely advertised as the procedure was time consuming and costly depending upon the hair quality and hair growth of the person. Many methods and techniques have been discovered and invented to remove hair from the body . Some of the most basic ones are shaving and waxing. But these methods are used for a temporary basis since the hair always grows back in a span of 3-4 weeks. After which innovative methods like electrolysis and laser hair removal were introduced for a more permanent solution.
Laser hair treatment is the process of removing hair permanently by destroying the hair follicles deep inside the skin using a laser light or beam which leaves you to have smoother skin. The laser light is blue in color and this treatment was first carried out by only experienced doctors medical practitioners but now as the method has become more and more common and reliable, it is being made available in mini forms in markets and online as well so that people can use it in the comfort of their own houses. This is what does hair developer do when they are trying to remove excess hair.
How does it work?
The primary principle behind the working of laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis ( SPTL) . The matching of a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to obtain optimal effect on a targeted tissue with minimal effect on the surrounding tissue is the basis of its working. This destroys the hair follicles in order to stop its regeneration . Laser hair removal involves several number of sessions to completely carry out the treatment. The number of sessions depend upon the person’s hair growth quality . Laser works best with dark coarse hair.
Comparison of laser hair removal with other removal techniques —
Females of all ages wax and shave periodically. Be it a young teenager or a woman in her late twenties or a mother of 2 kids or a lady in her 60-70’s , everyone has been down that road of shaving bruises and painful waxing. Even Men have been victims to these methods in order to get that clean frame look. But both waxing and shaving have their pros and cons. Let’s see.
It is the most common hair removal method which is mainly used by men for removing facial hair and by women to remove any underarm or leg hair. Shaving is done by gently gliding a razor over all the unwanted hairy parts of the body or face which removes the hair from the surface of the skin of that area. Since shaving provides only a surface hair-removal, the hair follicles tend to quickly regenerate and grow back much thicker. It can act as the quickest solution for hair removal but similarly grows back. Another disadvantage is that the new hair is quite pricky to touch. It is cheap but only temporary as compared to laser which is a little bit on the costlier side but gives a permanent solution .
Another common hair removal method is waxing. It is pure painful but gives a much better result than shaving. Here, the hair is removed from its root by a series of wax and pulls. The wax is heated and applied onto the hairy area. It is allowed to cool down for some time and then the wax coat on the skin is pulled away in the direction opposite to the hair growth . This removes the hair from its root and ensures a semi permanent hair removal. It is more time consuming and painful but the hair starts growing back only after 3-4 weeks and is much weaker. This is again a temporary solution as compared to laser which is permanent.
Electrolysis was introduced 70-80 years ago and is still used to remove facial hair in woman. Electrolysis is 100% efficient in removing hair from an area of any color if used at an adequate power level with proper technique. But on comparison to laser, it was found that laser was 60 times more faster, less painful and more reliable than electrolysis.
Nowadays everything is just a few taps away. So why not laser too? No more visiting the clinic a thousand times in the sun and rain to get that hair permanently out and it’s more inside our budget than the weekly laser sessions at the clinic that cost upto thrice as much. Thus,
