Permanent Hair Removal
Laser vs. Other Options
So how does laser compare to other home treatments? Let’s forget about shaving for a moment. Most of us would certainly like to since it's tedious and often results in razor burn and unwanted ingrown hairs. Waxing is also available in a home version, which is slightly less daunting than those uncomfortable sessions in the salon, but the major downside is that hair needs to be grown in advance for waxing to be effective, which is not ideal at any time of year, least of all during the summer. Then there's depilatory creams, which like waxing, offer a longer term solution but because they cause skin irritation they are not suitable for everyone. Last but not least there's IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and Lasers, which both offer long term solutions to unwanted hair. The difference between the two is that IPL does not disrupt the growth cycle and will require constant treatments. Laser may also require a regular treatments but in general it’s considered more effective at producing long-term results.
