Why laser hair removal beats other methods hands down

Posted on 02 Nov, 2011

There are many hair removal methods available on the market, designed to remove both normal body hair and excessive hair growth. You can choose between DIY methods you can buy in the supermarket and do at home or salon treatments.

DIY methods can include shaving, waxing, epilating and the use of creams. People typically go to salons for waxing treatments, and although this can make treatments easier and faster, they can be expensive and need to be repeated regularly.

Shaving has long been the most popular DIY method and yet it is the method that needs to be done the most frequently. Removing the hairs from the surface of the skin does nothing to slow down the growth of the hair, and stubble can appear within hours.

Cuts are another shaving risk and can leave nasty scars. Waxing and epilation do provide longer-term results, although they are not without risks either. Ingrown hairs are a common problem with these hair removal methods, and they can become infected and inflamed, leaving scarring their wake, not to mention the pain of waxing!

If you are looking for long-lasting results and laser hair removal London can offer the most up to date and effective treatments.
