Methods For Removing Unwanted Body Hair

     There are several methods people use for removing unwanted body hair such as tweezers, shaving, waxing, depilatory cream, electrolysis, or oral medication. These methods tend to work for a while. Due to the poor performance of these methods many people have turned to laser hair removal to remove unwanted body hair. This method of treatment can be lengthy and then you need to take into consideration the laser hair removal pricing.

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that is done by a trained professional using a laser (a pulsating, intense beam of light) to remove unwanted hair. The intense heat from the laser causes damage to the hair follicle which prevents future hair growth. This is not a onetime treatment method; it can take several treatments to get the results of an extended hair free time frame. Each individual treatment session can range from a few minutes to hours and must be repeated on a set schedule to obtain effective results. The effectiveness of this treatment depends on several individual characteristics such as skin type, hair type, and pigment. The best candidates are people with dark hair, coarse hair, and light skin because this is the easiest to treat with the best results and the fewest number of treatments. Grey, red, and blonde hair are the most difficult to treat.

People that are not good candidates for this procedure are people with dark skin, people taking certain medication (such as Accutane or Retin-A), people who suffer from skin disorders such as psoriasis, or women that suffer from hormonal problems such as polycystic ovarian syndrome. People with tanned skin must postpone treatment until the tan fades before starting this procedure.

Is laser hair removal painful? This really depends on where the hair is located, but a numbing cream is placed on the area before the laser is used and most people experience only a mild level of discomfort after each treatment.

The price of laser hair removal is, of course, major factor in deciding whether to proceed with this treatment method. Laser hair removal pricing varies depending on several factors such as: the kind of laser being used, the amount of hair you are having removed, how many sessions it will take to remove the hair, the body location where the hair is being removed, type of payment package you choose, and the part of the country where you live. Some companies charge a flat or fixed fee, others the length of treatment time, and yet others charge a fee based on the per pulse use of the laser equipment. It pays to shop around for the best price; many professionals will offer a free consultation to answer your questions and to give you an idea of the number of treatments that you will need the projected outcome of the treatments, and an estimated cost. Companies that provide laser hair removal services say the overall cost of this treatment method is less costly, less painful, and more successful than electrolysis and repeated waxing.
