These days a great number of different methods for hair removal is known in the world. So, people with unwanted hair need to make a choice about what method of hair removal to use. It is a hard task, in fact, because all these methods give different results and the price also varies greatly. The most widely used methods are shaving, waxing, special creams and epilators. The reason of this popularity is simple - all these methods are cheap and they are also very easy to use, so that they can be performed at home.
But all of them have some disadvantages. Shaving can leave cuts even if it is performed very accurately. Waxing is a pretty painful method and probably the most painful one of all these simple methods. Depilatory cream can give you a skin irritation and sometimes even chemical burns. All of these methods have one common disadvantage - the effect they give is temporary. That means that you have to repeat all the procedures again and again. Shaving gives, probably, the shortest result and you need to perform it every day. Depilatory cream usually has a longer effect, which can last for several days. But as long as it removes hair only on the skin surface people with dark hair can still have a bad looking hair "shadow". With waxing it is possible to forget about hair for several weeks, but the method is painful. Epilators can give you similar results with less painful sensations, because they work like electrical tweezers, removing hair with roots.
Besides all the above said techniques, there are also methods that give permanent results. Most of these methods are pretty complicated and, thus, have to be performed in hair removal clinics. One of such methods is laser hair removal treatment. This method lies in a laser light being used and hair follicles being affected by this light; as long as the energy of light is high, follicle damage is also significant. With just a single procedure of laser hair removal treatment hair growth can be stopped completely. But laser hair removal equipment is very expensive, because it has a powerful laser and a special control system. All this makes prices on laser hair removal treatment very high. Not everybody can afford such an expensive procedure.
But, on the other hand, laser hair removal treatment gives permanent results, so you need to pay only once. Thinking how much money you can spend on waxing or shaving within a couple of years, the sum spent on laser hair removal won't seem to be that high.
Another method which gives permanent result is electrolysis hair removal. To remove hair by this technique a special silver electrode is inserted into hair follicle to transmit electrical current through it. As well as in laser hair removal treatment, this kills hair follicle and stops hair growth. But this method takes more efforts, because each hair should be treated separately. This method has been used for more than ten years now and even home electrolysis devices are available today. But they, of course, are simpler than professional models used in hair removal centers and the result is not so great. Sometimes you need to use home electrolysis machines several times to stop hair growth.
