It’s a matter of taste. There have been two trends that have taken hold in the care of body hair. Some people choose to leave and be natural, and some people decide to remove them all. The most famous choices for the latter are razors, wax, and depilatory creams. However, there is an alternative that is becoming more popular because it is convenient, fast and has excellent results: laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is the elimination of the terminal hair using light systems. It is the method of choice for alterations such as folliculitis or hirsutism. It is an aesthetic, non-invasive procedure that permanently reduces or eliminates facial and body hair on large surfaces without it being necessary to stop in daily activities. Likewise, it is especially interesting for athletes as well as for those people who consider hair to be an aesthetic problem that they wish to correct.
The laser hair removal leaves the skin with a soft and silky appearance than electrolysis, waxing or shaving. With this method, you can remove any body area in both men and women, with an average of 5-6 sessions you can get a full hair removal, although this may vary depending on the individual characteristics. This type of laser provides more durable results for any skin with maximum safety. The treatments are supervised by our specialist medical team and carried out by specialized personnel.
Not only women will measure this type of hair removal. Increasingly men also make use of it. Beard, underarms, and chest are the areas that they depilated. However, many people do not dare to try it because around this there are several myths or just do not understand how it works. To begin, it is essential to clarify that this is a method that, as long as it is in the hands of professionals is secure. In simple terms, what these types of lasers are to emit a light that is captured by the hair to the hair follicle, which destroys.
Main benefits of this treatment are:
When applied correctly and following the corresponding medical indications, does not have any danger and does not have to result in any disease or adverse reaction. The laser hair removal hurt issues pay off when you try it and see the result.
It does not use any aggressive methods, so it is less painful than other systems that can be used to reach the same output.
It can be used to remove hair from all areas of the body and face. The accuracy guarantees that it is possible to eliminate up to 90% of the hair in the area where it is applied in an average treatment of between 4 and eight sessions in medical spas.
Contrary to what happens with other techniques, it does not stimulate hair growth at any time and avoids the problems of folliculitis and encysted hairs, even contributing to improving this problem.
It also activates the collagen and elastin of the skin, so it improves texture and firms the tissues.
It is a practically painless method. Although it is true that its application generates a very slight discomfort – similar, for example, to that of a minimum puncture for the types of lasers whose effect may be more significant – which does not have to be a pain in itself – it can be applied some anesthetic cream.
Disadvantages of laser hair removal
Likewise, and with the clear objective of avoiding later problems, it is also necessary to bear in mind the possible disadvantages of laser hair removal and, above all, to know the cases in which some type of side effects may occur:
The laser is defined as a technique of permanent hair removal, rather than definitive, but hormonal changes and age can cause the hair to grow back. Of course, it will do so to a lesser extent, more weakened and more localized, so that its elimination can be done quickly and effectively.
It is not recommended to use this technique in case of tanned skin because it may not be effective and even generate slight burns. Therefore, it is recommended not to sunbathe one month before and another after the session.
It can not be applied in the area of the eyebrows and special care should be taken with the sessions on the face because it can cause eye damage.
In general, it is not very effective in the case of hair without pigmentation or of a particularly light color.
In each session, only the hair that is in the growth phase is eliminated. In fact, the hair must measure a minimum of between one and two mm. for the session to be effective since there are types of lasers that require the area to be shaved. It will be done before the session begins- and others will not.
It can be more expensive than other types of hair removal systems.
