Unwanted hairs on any area are a source of insecurity for many, but especially more so if those unwanted hairs are on one’s face. Temporary hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing, tweezing and threading are not only temporary but they can exacerbate the problem by causing irritation, ingrown hairs, and making the hair thicker, darker and denser.
Nowadays people have mostly turned to the 2 most popular methods, laser and electrolysis. While both methods work on facial hairs there are certainly differences between the two.
Laser is not permanent; it is just a reduction of hairs. It can only be used only on those with light skin and dark hair, so it will not work on fine, blonde or light hair. It is also hard to have treatments during summer because you need to stay out of the sun for 2 weeks before and after the treatment.
Electrolysis is the only Permanent Method of hair removal. It can be used on anyone regardless of skin or hair color, because it attacks cells within the hair follicle instead of pigment. This is especially good news for people who have dark skin and hair and aren’t seeing the results they want with laser hair removal, or people with light skin and light hair. Electrolysis doesn’t have this limitation. It works on every area large or small, on women and men equally. Electrolysis is always effective for ridding fine facial hair, whatever the color may be. Electrolysis is safe during summer months too, because you only need to avoid the sun for 2 days after the treatment.
If you want the best chances of Permanent Hair Removal in general, but especially for facial hairs, then Electrolysis is the answer.
