Shaving can be a time-consuming hassle. If you’ve thought about alternatives to having to endure this never-ending battle, you’ve probably heard about electrolysis and laser hair removal. These are two of the more common methods out there. However, they’re both very different in terms of how they’re performed and the results they offer. Electrolysis usually requires an extensive number of sessions and can be rather costly with other downsides. If you’re searching for an alternative to electrolysis for hair removal, consider laser hair removal at our office in Princeton, NJ instead.
About Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal uses pulses of light to absorb the pigment from hair follicles. This light energy effectively destroys the hair and can be used on a large area at one time. Electrolysis uses electricity to eliminate hair follicles individually. Therefore, laser treatment for hair removal is far more efficient and can typically be completed in less treatment sessions. These sessions are spaced out a set amount of time apart, and they should continue until you notice that the hair in the treated area has stopped growing. After this period, you can expect results to be long-lasting.
Advantages Over Electrolysis for Hair Removal
Besides its overall efficiency of being able to treat more area in less time, there are other advantages of laser hair removal over electrolysis. Because you’ll need fewer sessions, laser is generally a more cost-effective option. In the past, those with lighter hair color couldn’t count on laser technology to be effective in destroying the follicles since it relied on targeting the hair’s pigment. Today’s technology has improved quite a bit in this area. So don’t automatically assume you aren’t a good candidate for the process based on what you may have been told. A consultation with our specialist can clear up any doubt or misconceptions. Today’s lasers are definitely capable of providing efficient and effective hair removal for many different types of candidates.
