Finding ways to remove hair permanently and with the least amount of pain is a rather tedious process. There are a lot of methods available to remove hair such as plucking, waxing, shaving, using depilatory creams, laser hair removal procedures, and electrolysis. Some of the most popular among women and men alike are waxing and shaving, however, the results derived from these methods do not last for extended periods of time. Waxing can also be rather painful and shaving can lead to ingrown hairs and infections if not done properly.

Two of the best ways to remove hair and not have it grow back soon are electrolysis and laser hair removal. Some individuals who have undergone these procedures even say that their hair has been permanently removed. With all the information and marketing plugs being advertised about these two methods of hair removal, how do you choose which is right for you?

Several people are confused and are wondering which the better option is between electrolysis and laser hair removal. Both methods of hair removal present permanent results; however, it is best to review the methods pros and cons before deciding which method to use.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal works best when used on dark hair and light skin since the laser looks for the melanin found in dark hair. Some lasers are known to successfully remove light colored hair but this type of equipment has not yet been perfected. People with darker hair should also be wary of laser hair removal. The laser will target the melanin on the skin as well which may lead to problems with skin pigmentation.

For people concerned about the pain factor, it is good to know that undergoing laser hair removal is not as painful as waxing. However, it is more painful than using tweezers of depilatory creams. The laser generally feels like a rubber band being snapped on your skin. The procedure typically lasts for about ten minutes; and multiple treatments are usually needed between five or six every four weeks or so. A laser hair removal session can cost anywhere from $150 to $200 depending on where you live.

People who undergo laser hair removal procedures should expect about hair growth to be reduced at about 80%. Results vary from individual to individual some people have better results, while some may have to resort to other methods of hair removal such as electrolysis.

One of the good things about electrolysis is that it works for both dark and light hair. Electrolysis works by conducting low level electrical currents into the follicle, thereby killing it. Electrolysis focuses on a single strand of hair at any given time and can be a tedious process; however, it makes it the ideal solution for hair removal on areas such as the eye brows, chin, and upper lip.

Electrolysis is more painful than laser hair removal and costs about $60 for a 30 minute session. You will also need to come back for multiple sessions; about 15 to 30 sessions should produce the best results. Results, however, are guaranteed.

The choice between electrolysis and laser hair removal is really up to your specific needs. Consider your budget, your pain threshold, and your time, but most importantly – consider the physician performing the procedure. Do not rush in making the decision, do your research and always think of your safety first.
