When it comes to unwanted or excess hair removal there are so many options it can be difficult to decide what is best for you; epilation, threading, waxing, laser hair removal, IPL, electrolysis-where to start?!
Shaving tends to be most of our introduction into the world of hair removal. After all, we can do it in the comfort of our own bathroom and don’t need to book an appointment for it, plus, the cost of a razor is minimal. However, over time, shaving can become something we forget to do, we put off because of the amount of time it requires (not to mention some of the angles required to reach certain parts) or simply dislike doing because of the side effects, such as ingrowing hairs. Oh, and let’s not forget that for some of us, stubble has formed by the end of the day making it seem like a thankless task.
Sometimes, we move on to waxing, either at home or at a beauty salon. The results tend to last longer than shaving and if someone else is doing it for you, you don’t need to perform a Cirque du Soleil manoeuvre to complete the task. Having your waxing done professionally is also probably more comfortable and quicker than doing it at home because, well, it’s their job-they know which way to apply the wax and to pull it off and they usually do it so frequently they’ll do it much more quickly than a layperson.
So, why would you move on to laser hair removal for your excess hair removal? For most people it’s the longevity of laser hair removal results; they can often last years.
There are pros and cons for all treatments, it truly is about personal preference when it comes to removing your facial and body hair. To make that decision a little easier, I’m going to compare Soprano Ice laser hair removal, because this is our laser skin clinic’s choice of laser hair removal (Hertfordshire), with waxing.
This is a method of excess hair removal that physically pulls the hair out of the follicle in which it sits. The results tend to last much longer than shaving, for example, because the hair needs to grow all the way to the surface of the skin to be seen and felt.
The laser used in laser hair removal treatments targets the pigment in the hair, using it as a pathway for the laser energy to travel to the root (where the hair grows from) and destroy it.
Has this helped you decide if waxing or laser hair removal is right for you?
