This does sound impossible a bit but the modern cosmetology has some secret magic tricks to combine all that in one place. So now we are going to speak about the main ways of getting rid of unwanted hair for good!
Getting Rid of Unwanted Hair Using Laser
Laser epilation is one of the most popular ways of getting rid of unwanted hair. The essence of this method is the influence of the laser on the follicle of the hair, as a result of which the latter gets destroyed and the hair stops growing. Due to several repetitions of the procedure, you can say farewell to unwanted hair forever.
If you have picked this method, we would suggest knowing several nuances and details about this procedure.
First of all, these laser treatments work for dark hair only, but they are absolutely useless in case of the fluff. The reason is that the dark hair contains way bigger proportions of melanin, which absorbs the laser’s energy and destroys the follicle.
Secondly, the laser removal of unwanted hair is quite expensive so you also need to be aware of the expenses you may appear to face when going for this treatment.
The next way of getting rid of unwanted hair is going for a photo epilation. This is the method of removing the unwanted hair with the help of light, having appeared in salons some 10 years ago. It’s one of the most popular methods of epilation nowadays and the essence of this technique is using the light impulses, which penetrate into the depth of the follicle and destroy it. Like the laser epilation, photo epilation is also suitable for natural brunettes.
In order to totally destroy the follicle, you’ll need more than 5 procedures, which should be done once a month for the beginning, then going less frequent. The cost of this epilation is less than in the previous case, but still, it may also give you a matter to think over.
In addition, for both types of epilations there are a number of contraindications like skin diseases and sun burns.
The invention of the Elos technology was a real revolution in the fashion world. This method combined the benefits of photo and laser epilations and got rid of a number of disadvantages both of those techniques had. This method is based on the simultaneous application of the laser and photo impulses, and one great thing about it is the total absence of any kind of unpleasant feelings, being suitable even for the people having allergies. It is, of course, recommended for the bikini zone, due to the subtle and delicate influence. 5 to 10 visits to the salon including gaps of 1.5-2 months will be enough for getting rid of the unwanted hair for good. The cost is, of course, quite high.
