Laser hair removal: Permanent or a Temporary fix?
When it comes to removing the body and facial hair, what most people opt for? Pointy razors while taking a shower? Or Trimming them down before an event or gym session? Or maybe painful waxing appointments every fortnight?
Well, talking about alternatives, only 1 thing comes to our mind- LASER HAIR REMOVAL. The question is: Is it a permanent solution? If not, then what’s the difference? Why would anybody choose this over razors, waxing and trimmers?
Too many questions? We have an answer to everything!
Summing up in one line- NO. No, laser hair removal is not a permanent solution. By the term ‘permanent’ we don’t mean that one will get back to the amount of hair growth as of now.
The term ‘permanent’ implies that the effect of laser treatment is quite long. Laser hair removal works by heating the hair follicles to stop new hair growing. This puts the hair follicles in a state of dormancy for a long period — much longer than with shaving and waxing. When the hairs do grow back, they’ll be lighter, finer, and fewer in number.
The following areas as said to be appropriate for laser hair removal:
- bikini line
- face (except for the eye area)
Although laser hair removal isn’t exactly permanent, it’s still one of the best options for slowing hair growth over an extended period. Other long-term hair removal options you can opt are electrolysis and needle epilators.
While it isn’t permanent doesn’t mean you would be like a bear after a while. Hair strands that grow back, they appear to be finer, lighter and very few, as few as one may not even notice. To add to the list of pros, it is highly painless as compared to waxing or epilating.
