The most traditional way of hair removal is waxing it is messy and vigorously painful; trust me on this guys. Plucking and razors leaves unwanted stubbles for you, so if you're tired of these cave-man ways of hair removal techniques read on. Now with technology on our side, Permanent hair removal is the way to go. This method completely destroys any hair follicle in the skin preventing regeneration, ditching the old ways of plucking, waxing and shaving saving time and effort in the process.
The term "Permanent" in this kind of permanent hair removal method unfortunately doesn't mean forever. Like permanent markers and the hairline on your stylish head doesn't seem to last or stay forever the same. In this case of permanent hair removal it only stats that it would take a longer amount of time for the full recovery of the hair on one's skin. The results would vary for individual to individual.
Till this date, there is little to no evidential proof that "permanent" hair removal would really have permanent effects as the reason is unknown. Below are is a clinical study of a report published in the medical journals and is submitted to the FDA. Note that the results with long-term response rates from 0% to 100%, depending on the study.

So far, from the above charts you can see that electrolysis is the only clinically-proven method. In the process of electrolysis which targets follicles and kills them when they are at the peak of their growing cycle, hair-thin metal probes are carefully slithered in the follicles of your hairs shaft. These hair-thin metal probes then introduces electrical charges to locally damage the follicles preventing further rejuvenation and growth.
Other than using electrolysis method, lasers and flash lamps are also effective but giving you only permanent hair "reduction". These types of hair removal methods are considered safe providing it is administered properly; laser hair removal method introduces a wavelength into the skin targeting dark components such as pigmentation in the hair hence damaging it without destroying its surrounding tissues.
These permanent hair removal methods or so to speak hair reduction methods has unknown lifespan which may range and vary from individual to individual. The average lasting effect these permanent hair removal methods is from two months to a year. Further adding more to this unknown field, is that these permanent hair removal methods works best on people that has lighter skin and darker hair, although most people will experience hair re-growth but the new hair is lighter in color and has a finer texture.
