When it comes to hair removal, there are no 100% foolproof methods. The fact is, you are likely going to have to go with the best treatment available. Arguably the two best treatments out there for permanent hair removal are electrolysis and laser hair removal. The question a lot of people have is whether or not one is better than the other. In this article, we will be going over some more information on the two and we will discuss which one is better for permanent results.
The most mainstream laser unit that is available can actually only be used on those that have light skin along with dark hair. Those that have darker skin with lighter hair are likely to experience poor overall results. The reason this happens is because the laser works by targeting the pigment that is darker. Therefore, the lighter the skin and darker the hair you have – the better. While advancements are being made with the technology, it is not quite there yet.
This particular treatment method can actually be used on anyone regardless of their skin color, hair color, or anything else. This is because the treatment ends up attacking the actual hair follicle itself instead of the pigment within the hair. Therefore, it doesn’t matter how much the hair follicle stands out.
How Long Is Each Session?
When it comes to laser treatment, the sessions don’t take up too much time. This is because facial zones are fairly small. Therefore, they do not end up consuming a lot of time. Each treatment using eyebrows as an example take around 15 minutes. For this particular hair removal method, around 4 to 6 treatments are going to be needed. These treatments will need to be spaced out to about 1 month apart from each other in order to achieve the best possible results.
Each individual hair follicle needs to be individually singled out and treated for this session. Thus, the amount of time that this treatment takes can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes with a professional and experienced technician. For this particular method, you will likely need anywhere from 15 to as much as 30 individual sessions in order to achieve the best results.
As you can see, there are two very different methods for achieving hair removal. One (electrolysis) is more permanent than the other and it offers numerous advantages over laser treatments.
