Perhaps one of the most painful methods of hair removal, waxing involves using strips of wax to pull the hair follicle out of the root, eventually causing the hair to grow in finer. Though hot wax is a quick and effective way of removing unwanted body hair, not all skin types may benefit from this type of treatment. More sensitive skin types may experience negative side effects that can alter the skin permanently.
On the other hand, laser hair removal uses a beam of laser energy or heat to penetrate the unwanted hair root. This permanently damages the follicle and prevents it from growing new hair. Each treatment plan depends on the individual’s hair type and may require between three to eight separate sessions every two months. It’s highly recommended that you have a professional esthetician complete the procedure to ensure it is done safely and accurately. Unlike waxing, one of the biggest advantages of laser hair removal is its ability to rid the skin of ingrown hairs.
Laser hair removal may be a better option for your specific needs, as it can target dark, coarse hairs while preventing the surrounding skin from becoming damaged. It can also take little to no time to treat many hairs simultaneously. For example, small areas like the upper lip can be treated in under a minute. Large areas, like the legs, can take up to an hour.
