Modern technologies allow you to get rid of unwanted hair for a long time or even forever. But which way is preferable? How safe is it? An overview of the most popular epilation methods will allow you to figure out which one is right for you.
One of the most effective and at the same time safe ways to get rid of unwanted hair for a long time or even forever is electrolysis. It is produced by specialists in hardware cosmetology in beauty salons and medical centers. There are two types of electrolysis. The first and most popular is fast enough and relatively painless. With the help of a special needle (thin electrode), the current directly destroys the hair follicles. The second method is tweezers. It is not popular because it takes too long: using the tweezers electrode, one hair is removed at a time for one and a half to five minutes. Whichever method of electrolysis you choose, one session will not be enough for you. Only for eyebrow shaping you will need 2-3 sessions, and for getting rid of hair on the legs or in the bikini area - 6-8.
If you have a high pain tolerance, think carefully before going for this procedure.
The second most effective way to remove hair for a long time is laser hair removal. As the name suggests, the hair is removed with a laser beam during the procedure. It should be remembered that it allows you to get rid of unwanted hair not forever, but only for a while. In addition, it is completely useless for those with very light and red hair. But, unlike electrolysis, laser hair removal is completely painless.
For photoepilation, not a laser is used, but krypton lamps. This significantly reduces the cost of the procedure, but this is where the advantages end. Photoepilation is also ineffective for blondes and redheads, and in addition, it can cause a number of serious complications (hyperpigmentation and even burns) and has many contraindications. We can say that it is simply outdated.
