Anyone can use this method at home. Waxing is also pretty effective, but it is a painful method and there are many people who cannot withstand such pain even to get rid of hair. It is a little bit less painful to use epilator. Modern technology gives a huge variety of different devices that remove unwanted hair. Unlike waxing and epilators, different techniques and methods are used to lessen the pain sensation that is involved.
Some of these epilators have a special mechanism that allows to remove hair faster and with less pain while others use additional devices, like a container with special substance that can be chilled in the freezer and attached to the epilator (cold can lessen your sensations in the epilated area, so you will feel less pain during the process). Such devices are pretty simple and these methods also can be used at home. But there is a one big problem with all these methods, the effect they give is temporary. That means that you have to use them again and again. Usual rotary epilator allows removing hair for about a month or so.
Waxing will give you an ability to enjoy your life without hair for about a week. And if you use shaving then you have to repeat it every day. And with shaving there is another problem, new hairs that grow after shaving are usually darker and harder than before, and all this can look very bad and give you lots of hard minutes. But this problem has a solution, there are numerous methods that allow you to achieve a permanent result.
One of the permanent hair removal methods is a laser hair removal surgery. Many clinics these days offer such hair removal method as laser hair removal surgery. If it is performed properly, laser hair removal surgery gives wonderful results. In laser hair removal surgery a special sort of laser is used, hair follicles are affected by a light of specific wavelength (this light is absorbed by the pigments that present in hair) which damages them. Such effect will slow hair growth significantly or even cause the hair loss.
And as long as the hair follicle is damaged by the light, the effect of the laser hair removal surgery is permanent. But such a hair removal operation is pretty expensive (of course, you have to use it only once, what allows you to save money you would spend on other hair removal procedures that give temporary effect) and not everyone can afford it. And there are also possible side effects of laser hair removal surgery. Burns and skin pigmentation that can stay on your skin for several months can occur after laser hair removal surgery. And in some cases, such procedure can have no effect at all, even though the patient has dark hair (which is perfect for the laser hair removal).
