Laser Hair Removal vs. Waxing
Laser Hair Removal vs. Waxing

We all have tried so many ways to get rid of unwanted hair in certain areas, but what exactly is more effective? Which method eventually leads to this state of “permanency?? Can we even reach the point of permanent hair removal?

So what exactly is laser hair removal? Laser hair removal is basically lasers that use different wavelengths of light. All laser systems emit a beam of light that passes through the skin, to the hair follicle where it is absorbed by the hair. At that stage, the laser is then turned into heat which disables the follicle. Patients usually need at 3-6 treatments for desired results, while others may need up to 6-8.

How does waxing differ? A wax combination is spread over the skin, and then a cloth strip is pressed on the top and then ripped off with a quick movement removing the wax along with the hair and dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth. How long will it take until hair grows? Generally, between 3-8 weeks hair will re-grow, although generally finer.

Overall, whether it’d be laser hair removal or waxing, it takes a certain amount of treatments. Laser hair removal is good in a way that it takes fewer treatments until you start to notice the desired results. While on the other hand, waxing may take longer until all the hair becomes finer. Waxing is a lot cheaper by the session than a laser. In comparison, they both have their ups and downs. Either way, we’ll eventually reach our desired results.
