Unwanted body hair is a misery for many people and they resort to shaving or waxing to get rid of them but these options for hair removal are time-consuming, tedious and repetitive. For years people have struggled with agonising methods of hair removal, reluctantly accepted the hair or suffered from low-esteem. However, with the advent of technology, various hair removal treatment methods have come up offering a more permanent solution and are safe.
Here are the methods to help you get smoother skin that lasts much longer.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the most sought-after treatment method to get rid of unwanted body hair and people all over the world are turning to it. During the treatment session, an aesthetician points a handheld device onto the treatment area with highly concentrated pulsating beams of light which gets absorbed by the melanin in the hair and destroys the hair follicles hindering the growth of hair in future. This treatment can effectively slow down hair growth anywhere on the body.
However, most of the laser hair removal works best for people with dark hair and light skin tone. This is due to the fact, the light from most of the hair removal laser machines targets the pigment in the hair. If you have a darker skin tone you need to talk to the aesthetician about the options involving lasers with longer wavelength to zap the unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is non-invasive and a safe treatment method with no downtime. However, people with sensitive skin may have redness or swelling which subsidises within 24 hours.
If you want to get this treatment, you will have to find a reputable medical clinic or salon in your locality with an expert aesthetician. You can search for Melbourne laser hair removal clinics online or get recommendations from your friends or family. Talking about the price of the treatment, it varies as it depends on factors such as which body part is to be treated, number of sessions needed and which area your aesthetician practices in. For smaller areas cost is less while for larger areas the cost goes up.
This is another treatment method to remove unwanted hair, however, this option works for facial hair. Vaniqa is a hair removal cream but not like the ordinary ones available in the market. It is an FDA/TGA approved, prescription only topical cream that contains a chemical to inhibit the growth of unsightly facial hair in women. The active ingredient present is eflornithine hydrochloride, which is also used to treat certain cancers and African sleeping sickness. This cream when applied twice a day offers incredible results in just 4-8 weeks. It continues to work its magic by reducing facial hair growth for almost 8 weeks even after you stop using it.
The above-mentioned are the treatment methods to zap unwanted hair and in the long run, these methods will help you ditch the razor and reap the rewards of smoother skin that lasts much longer than shaving or waxing.
