Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is the fastest, safest and most permanent way of removing your unwanted body and facial hair. The treatment requires a course of treatments, but once done you can forget about lengthy and frequent shaving sessions and painful waxing. The laser targets the pigment in your hair , at the bottom of the hair follicle, to destroys the root enabling future hair growth.
Laser hair removal is suitable for all skin types, and the results will leave you with permanent reduction in your hair. You may need a maintenance session every couple of years, but even then you should experience a lot less and much finer hair growth.
Although at first the treatment may seem pricey, when you split it down to the number of treatments and areas you are treating you can find that it can cost less than actual waxing. Where you can not say the same about the results of laser vs waxing. So laser will always be a win win and one of the best investments in yourself.
Laser hair removal vs sugaring
As opposed to laser hair removal is sugaring is a more natural way of removing your hair. And in fact sugaring is thought to be one of the most ancient hair removal methods. It is very similar to waxing, but the ingredients are all natural and no heat is required. Therefore it’s a much more gentle compared to waxing, however you results should only last for about 3-5 weeks as opposed to the permanent reduction you’ll get with the laser. So in terms of results it not a question laser beats all other hair removal methods including sugaring.
Which is more painful laser hair removal or sugaring?
The pain levels of sugaring and laser can vary depending on the person receiving the treatment. While some patients find sugaring to be uncomfortable others may not feel a thing. But each person comes with a difference threshold for pain so that’s quite normal.
With laser hair removal, depending which areas you are layering you may experience different levels of slight discomfort. The best way to explain the sensation during laser hair removal is like having a rubber band snapped on your skin. If you however feel the pain to be overwhelming, your practitioner will have the ability to turn the laser to a lower setting and apply extra cooling post treatment.
