A long-lasting solution for too much body hair

Posted on 12 Jan, 2012

More and more men are favouring the smooth-skinned, hair-free look, in line with the tendencies of women to remove more and more body hair. While most may opt to remove body hair using one of the more traditional methods such as waxing or shaving, there are other options that can provide longer-lasting results.

IPL is a great option for those who do not want to shave daily or haven’t the time for monthly visits to the salon. It destroys the hair follicle, causing hairs to fall out from the root and impairs the ability to produce new hairs. This is done using intense pulses of light which creates heat energy that denatures the regenerative cells lining the hair follicles, preventing them from continuing the hair-growth cycle.

For those looking for laser hair removal, London offers a wealth of choice, but it is always of paramount importance to check out the credentials of a clinic before going ahead with the treatment. In the right hands, IPL provides fantastic results, but a laser can be terribly damaging if operated by someone without the necessary experience and knowledge.
