Laser hair removal versus electrolysis

Laser hair removal versus electrolysis

Back in earlier days people would depend on shaving, waxing or tweezing to remove unwanted hair but now there are lot of permanent solutions which will stop growth of unwanted hair from your body permanently.

Two of the most popular treatments for permanent hair removal are Laser and Electrolysis.

They both used different technology, have their pros and cons but both deliver satisfactory results.

Laser uses a concentrated beam of light which penetrates into the skin, targets and destroys the black pigment melanin in your hair follicles by burning them without causing any harm to your skin. This treatment is more effective for people with dark hair and may not be very effective on tattooed skin, dark skin and grey hair. Dark hair and contrast between the skin and hair is important in laser treatment. Other difference is that while Laser requires fewer sittings (6-8) to remove hair from a specific body part, Electrolysis requires far more number of sittings but is ideal for people who can’t undergo laser due to their hair texture, skin color or tattoos.

Electrolysis involves inserting a tiny needle like problem into the skin which destroys the hair follicles by electrocuting them once inside the skin.

Although laser claims to offer a permanent hair solution but in reality it does require once a year maintenance sessions as hair growth is not stopped completely even after completing all the mandatory 6-8 sittings. The quantity and texture of new hair reduces significantly after laser treatment.
