How To Get Rid Of Unwanted Hair Permanently   by Marcus Grant


If you want to get rid of unwanted hair, there are all kinds of techniques to help you to do so -- from waxes to razor blades and from lasers to electrolysis. But if you want to get rid of it for good, the preferred method nowadays is laser treatment.

Why is laser treatment preferred?

It's preferred because this method has very low risks and can't damage your skin unless performed by an unskilled quack. Electrolysis also works, but requires too much time because each and every individual hair is removed, one at a time. And that often costs a lot more than laser treatment.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works through a selective process called Photothermolysis. It sends a beam of laser light right down to the hair follicles and the light's focussed power is used to destroy the roots. It is a selective treatment because it will only disable the hair roots, and not affect the surrounding skin. It uses light and heat to get rid of hair, which is actually the meaning of the name 'photothermolysis'.

What kind of person is the best candidate for laser hair removal?

Because this method works by seeking out melanin, which is the pigment that gives color to our hair and skin, laser hair removal treatment is best suited for people who have dark hair and light skin. Unfortunately, laser treatment cannot be used very successfully on tanned skin because there it can cause marks similar to sunburns. It is usually advised that you wait until the tan is gone before you use laser hair removal treatment. Also, persons that have grey hair or are naturally blonde cannot use this technique as yet, because the melanin in their follicles is not so easy to target.

Does it hurt?

Laser hair removal will not hurt, but can sometimes create feelings of discomfort, and in some cases the after-effects are similar to sunburn. To prevent this, laser hair removal clinics will use ice-packs, cooling gels or sprays to help relieve the discomfort and you are usually advised to use sun block cream for a week or two after the treatment. Also, you can ask for a 'test' before beginning the treatment, and clinics often provide spot tests so the customers can see what the treatment will be like. Try one of these to be sure that your skin will not have some kind of allergic reaction to it.

How much will it cost?

The price for laser treatment varies according to the size of the area that you want treated, and the number of sessions. Laser hair removal centers often recommend 4 or 5 sessions, but the number will vary according to your skin type, hair color and the target area of the body. The fee may seem large initially, but you'll probably come to realize that it's a sum worth paying, because you'll be saving yourself a lifetime of investment in time, money and care.
