Laser hair removal vs.
Laser hair removal and electrolysis are two
of the most expensive options for removing
unwanted hair from the body, and they are not
right for everyone. Results are not always
perfect, even when the procedures are performed by
professionals. Laser hair removal is a procedure
in which a laser is beamed through the skin and
into the underlying structure of unwanted hair to
destroy the hair follicles. Usually this requires
several laser hair removal treatments. Not everyone is a candidate. For it to work, your hair must be darker
than the surrounding skin. On the other hand,
unlike laser hair removal, electrolysis is an option for virtually everyone.
Better results with laser hair
The technology for laser hair removal is always
getting better. Many professionals even use pulsed
light instead of a laser for the treatments.
Electrolysis works in the same fashion, by
damaging local hair follicles so they stop growing
hair. However, it uses thin metal probes that send
minute amounts of electricity to destroy each
Testimonials from clients of both laser hair
removal and electrolysis say that the results are
not 100%, and also that many required multiple
treatments to get the promised results. This is
not the fault of the laser hair removal or
electrolysis technologies, per se.
Hair must be treated multiple times during laser
hair removal and electrolysis because it grows in
different timed stages. Hair follicles must be
treated at each of these stages of its growth process in
order to yield permanent hair removal results. Even then,
between 7% and 10% of consumers do not have
satisfactory results with laser hair removal, so buyer beware!
