If you find yourself grimacing, cringing and rolling your eyes at annoying, pesky areas of hair – you are not alone and can be helped!

Laser hair removal is your ticket to getting rid of that unwanted hair, wherever it may be! Many people have this unwanted hair on their faces, while other struggle more with hair on the body. Some people who pursue laser hair removal actually want hair, but just not as much of it, so they have a few treatments to thin out that area of hair.

How does it work? To know if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal you first have to understand how this technology works – even just the basics. So think back to 4th grade science and the colour spectrum. Dark colours attract light and energy and hold it, while light colours reflect light energy. This is why tennis players always wear white on the court, and you should never wear a black t-shirt to the beach!

This technology works much the same. Let’s take an example. Mary is a perfect candidate. She is from English/Irish decent and has fair skin, black hair and blue eyes.

The laser beam used in the laser hair removal device is directed at the hair follicles on Mary’s leg. The dark pigmentation in the follicle absorbs the laser light energy. Her white skin does not absorb the light energy; in fact, energy dissipates. The follicle absorbs more and more energy, dies and can no longer grow hair.

Not everyone has the combination of skin or complexion colour and hair colour as Mary and the differences or combination types have an effect on the outcome of the treatment. However, in the hands of an expert with the latest technology, nearly everyone can have a good laser hair removal result.

There may be more than one area you would like unsightly hair to be removed from, and this is all possible. Even arm hair can be reduced! Let’s look at some popular procedures.

Bikini Line

Admittedly I take a razor to this area every other day. And why shouldn’t I? Today, swimwear is fashion that rivals a great handbag, shoes or scarf. With some women paying hundreds on a designer bikini, that line better not be spoiled with extraneous hair! Bikini hair removal is one of the most popular forms of laser hair removal and it is considered rude to show off pubic hair at the beach – rather than showing off your fashion sense.

Underarm

Again, something I do during each and every shower. But don’t most woman? And just forget that one time and decide to wear a sleeveless shirt – how embarrassing! So even though it may be quick and easy to shave in the shower every day, sometimes we do forget – we are human. And this is where laser hair removal can end our troubles. Commitment-free, the treatment is quick and easy and you will never have to worry about wearing that sleeveless summer blouse ever again.

Legs

Every woman’s dream – never shaving your legs again! Never packing a razor. Never seeing that stubble or hearing him complain when he touches your skin. With pantyhose somewhat outdated there is nothing to hide behind. Although stubble sticking through pantyhose may have been even worse! So we shave every day. And then we use some or other oil to take away the scars we inevitably get by cutting ourselves every so often. Removing leg hair with laser hair removal is the ultimate choice for a woman and a fantastic luxury!

Facial Hair

Women should not have to suffer with a moustache and sideburns, or chin hairs. The thought sends chills down my spine! Facial hair can detract from your looks and is so easy to remove with laser. If you are putting it off though, just remember that facial hair can also suddenly appear with hormonal changes, including menopause!

This is also a great idea for men, as an alternative to daily shaving. An added benefit is no more ingrown hairs or razor burn. Well worth the effort!

Back Hair Removal for Men

Yes, this is not only for women. Laser hair removal is a popular solution for excessive hair on back, chest and legs. Many athletic men enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal as a way to achieve better athletic results. Additionally, men who have gained a level of fitness and muscle tone don’t want to hide their attractive muscles behind a thick coating of hair.

Also, a number of men who wish to have tattoos on their chest or back or any place will commonly have laser hair removal performed before the tattoo. Later this may be a difficult option (remember ink is a pigment).

So what’s all the fuss? Is it all about vanity and just aesthetic? Maybe so, but I reckon I would be in it for the pure convenience!
