Hair removal is a private matter, and the topic is sensitive in general. Eons ago, hair conveyed strength, power, even social status. Think of Samson in the Bible, or Medusa, whose hair was turned into snakes.
Shaving your legs weekly, plucking chin hairs or waxing the eyebrows and a mustache are time consuming, and not exactly fun. Add to these, tending to armpits and ever-so-private areas of our bodies, we’re spending a lot of time on hair removal.
So, why not rid yourself of the task completely and opt for permanent hair removal?!
There are two tools that are industry standard for permanent hair removal: the Lightsheer Diode Laser, and the Nd Yag Laser.
Hair Be Gone, Option 1: The Lightsheer Diode Laser This device makes hair removal not only permanent, but one of the most comfortable for the patient during treatment. Basically, each hair follicle receives a laser pulse for just a fraction of a second. This keeps the hair from growing back. This unit was introduced to the market in 1990. What makes this unit so beneficial are its speed, accuracy and added comfort for the patient. The unit has a hand piece with a cooling capability. It protects the patient’s skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery. The Result: Significantly less skin irritation. And since it works quickly, larger areas can be serviced in less time. It typically requires 3 to 5 treatments to get good reduction of hair growth. Laser hair removal cost per treatment rages from $29 to $200 depending on the area size.
Hair Be Gone, Option 2: The Nd Yag LaserThe second approach is to use the NdYag Laser. Its greatest advantage for hair removal is its ability to perform well on darker and African-American Skin. This technology was introduced to the market in 1990. Depending on what is to be removed, cost is $50-$300 per treatment.
