An Effective Alternative To Laser Hair Removal
Are you looking for an alternative to laser hair removal in Montgomery, Alabama?
Time-consuming and repetitive hair removal processes, such as shaving and waxing, leave many longing for a more permanent hair removal method.
Fortunately, those in the Montgomery area interested in permanent hair removal can consider either electrolysis hair removal or laser hair removal.
However, according to the FDA, the only method of hair removal that can officially be termed “permanent hair removal” is electrolysis. The FDA gives electrolysis this designation due to the fact that electrolysis is — unlike laser hair removal — effective on all hair types and is capable of removing all hairs from a given area of the skin.
Electrolysis involves removing hair through destroying hair follicles via low-level electric pulses. In electrolysis, hairs must be removed one follicle at a time, and the process may involve several treatments of the technique before it is complete and all the hairs are removed from a given area.
Laser hair removal stops hair follicles from producing hair by pulsating beams of light rather than electric pulses. Of the two techniques, electrolysis has been around the longest and is effective on a greater variety of hair types. While laser hair removal is not generally effective on thin or fair hair types (see image), electrolysis can be used to remove any type of hair.
Consult With A Hair Removal Expert
The effectiveness of both electrolysis and laser hair removal tends to vary between persons, and also depends a great deal on the skill of the practitioner performing the process. Those interested in electrolysis or laser hair removal in Montgomery must understand the importance of finding an expert practitioner to perform the procedure.
Both processes require some time to completely carry out and take several different appointments to achieve 100% of their effectiveness. Electrolysis and laser hair removal appointments both generally last between 15 minutes and an hour, and long term results depend on the individual.
