For some people it is an almost daily battle to keep unwanted hair at bay, which is why hair removal treatments have become so popular in the past few years.
As our society has changed it has become almost expected that certain parts of our bodies should be kept hair free and this is especially the case for woman.
Although men tend to have more hair than women, it is usually women who feel more pressure to keep themselves hair free. Having said this, more and more men are now beginning to pay for hair removal making it one of the most popular beauty treatments
Most people still stick to traditional hair removal techniques such as shaving and waxing but in order to maintain the desired results they have to be carried out regularly. This is both time consuming and tedious and it for this reason that a whole range of hair removal techniques have emerged.
The aim of hair removal techniques is to produce a long lasting and ideally permanent result, which is both quick and inexpensive to perform. Although very few hair removal treatments guarantee permanent hair loss, they generally can reduce the amount of growth and also keep it at bay for longer time periods.
Types of Hair Removal Techniques:
As well as the traditional shaving, plucking and waxing there are a number of hair removal techniques on the market and the most common and effective ones are as follows:
Laser hair removal: This provides a long lasting hair removal solution by using laser energy to damage the hair follicle and hence stop the hair from growing. Although it is not a permanent solution it can significantly reduce the amount of hair that grows in the treated area.
