Laser hair removal
A sticky wax is spread on the area of skin where the unwanted hair is growing. A cloth strip is then applied over the wax and quickly pulled off, taking the hair root and dead skin cells with it. The wax can be warmed or may be applied cold. Waxing can be done at a salon or at home.
Laser Hair Removal
A laser is directed through the skin to the hair follicle, where it stops growth, meaning it can achieve permanent removal. Typically, the hair in treated areas falls out within 2-3 weeks.
– Waxing leaves the area smooth and is long lasting
– Hair regrowth looks lighter and less noticeable than it is after other methods of hair removal, such as shaving.
Benefits of Laser Hair removal:
– This type of hair removal is long lasting and large areas of skin can be treated at the same time.
– Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
