Do you have pesky hairs where you don’t want them? Fortunately some procedures like laser removal or electrolysis can permanently reduce yourhair. But how do you know which procedure is right for you? Check out the pros and cons of each procedure below and discuss your options with a licensed dermatologist to select the best method to suite you.
Laser Hair Removal
In this a hand-held laser applies a high energy pulsating light to the skin. The light targets the melanin; the melanin is responsible for the dark color.
* Fewer treatments are needed than electrolysis. Only 4-6 treatments each spaced a month apart are required.
* Each treatment is shorter in length. While electrolysis treats each and every follicle, this removal treats a large area all at once. A patient’s entire back can be treated within one hour.
* Lasers only reduce the amount of hair in an area, rather than permanently remove all.
* Lasers method can be expensive. The price depends on the size of the area you want treated and which service provider you choose to work with. Insurance usually does not pay for removal because it is an elective cosmetic procedure, so you will need to pay out of pocket. Beware of providers offering extreme deals. Often you sacrifice quality and safety when you cut costs.
* The skin can be damaged by the lasers. Although rare, some possible side effects include scarring, burns, and blisters.
* This procedure is limited as to who it can treat. It can be dangerous for patients with darker pigmentation in the skin, yet lasers are not very effective on blond hairs. Lasers yield the best results when the patient has fair skin and dark hairs.
During this procedure, an electrical current is applied to each and every follicle by way of a needle. The currents are capable of destroying each root permernently therefore ending growth.
* It has a better track record than laser hair removal. Treated areas generally remain hairless for very long periods of time or even forever.
* This is not limited to fair skinned people with dark hair. Because it targets the follicle itself and not the pigment like the laser, all types of people may qualify.
* Electrolysis requires several sessions, even as many as thirty appointments.
* If done incorrectly, skin can be discolored
* Electrolysis uses a needle to treat each follicle so if a follicle is bent, it makes it very difficult. Previous waxing and tweezing can make this happen.
