Women have long been faced with the dilemma of removing unwanted hair, but with so many options, what is really best for keeping hair gone for good? The most popular options are either waxing or laser hair removal. The former is much more inexpensive, whereas the latter is hailed as achieving longer-lasting results. So, which one is right for you? Keep reading to learn more about both and decide for yourself the best way to stay silky and smooth:
Waxing for sensitive skin uses comfortable, results-oriented techniques to gently remove unwanted hair, leaving the skin smooth and hair-free. Professional estheticians and skin care professionals perform a full array of waxing services, from eyebrow shaping to Brazilians. Hair can be removed from most areas of the body including the brow, upper lip, neck, chin, face, bikini area, legs, underarms, arms, hands, back, stomach and toes.
Waxing is not just for women. More and more men today are waxing away unwanted hair from areas like the chest, back, abdomen and shoulders. Whether you’re seeking perfectly shaped eyebrows and sideburns, a hairless chin and upper lip, or silky smooth legs, you can with waxing.
A wide variety of medical lasers and light systems are used to remove unwanted hair, however most lasers are not effective for all skin types and hair colors. The Elos™ laser hair removal system is designed for permanent hair reduction by combining both optical and radiofrequency energy to deliver satisfying, longer lasting results with less discomfort than previous laser systems. All skin and all hair colors including gray and blonde hair are effectively treated. Faces, backs, arms, legs, faces, and bikini lines can be treated including those individuals with darkly pigmented skin. Treatments are administered every 4 weeks and generally 3 to 5 treatments are sufficient.
