Laser vs Waxing

To wax or to laser? That is the question for many. Waxing has been around for a long time and is very popular. It works by applying warm wax onto a hairy area and then smoothing down a wax strip on top. The wax sticks on to the hair, and when the strip is pulled away, the hair is also pulled along with it. It can be a bit uncomfortable (many find it painful) but it does the job of getting the hairs off from the root. While Laser Hair Removal treatment is the removal of body hair using the technology of laser. The treatment works by targeting the hair follicles with laser light. The heat damages the hair follicle and stops them from producing any more hair.

To Wax Or To Laser

I prefer and recommend having a Laser Hair Removal Treatment over waxing if you can afford to. The treatments can be quite pricey but you clearly I have tried both ways and I found the laser method to be the most effective way of getting rid of body hairs. My laser treatment was on my chin. I had annoying hairs on there, so I decided to get them off using laser. It worked great. I had 6 Laser Hair Removal Treatment sessions in total, and the treatments left my chin feeling and looking completely hair free. You can read all about my Laser Hair experience here, here and other related blog posts.

With waxing, I still have some areas waxed quite regularly, like my eyebrows. Using laser on them won’t be ideal, so waxing does the job for that and other bits.

The Dos And Don’ts Of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Laser Hair Removal Treatment have become very popular in the last few years. I had 6 Laser Hair Removal Sessions on my chin in 2015/2016, and I am still very happy with the result. I still have to wax a few hairs off at home every 6/8 weeks but it is nothing compared to what I was dealing with before my treatment.

This Laser Hair Removal Treatment is very effective for many of us but for the treatment to work effectively and safely, there are some precautions you have to take. It is an expensive treatment

The Dos And Don’ts Of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Here are some of the dos and don’ts of Laser Hair Removal Treatment –

 

Do shave

You don’t want visible hairs on the area where you are having the treatment done as the hairs would get singed. You can shave in between sessions to get the hairs off. Shaving is the best way to get rid off hairs without damaging the roots.

 

Don’t wax, thread or epilate

Don’t wax, thread or epilate while you are having the laser hair removal treatment, as it would remove the hair from the roots. The laser treatment works because the machine used is attracted to the hair’s pigment underneath the skin. So if the hairs are waxed off for example, there won’t be anything on the hair for the laser to zap. If this happens, you might have to wait up to another four to six weeks for the root to re-form until you can be treated again.

 

Do wear sunscreen

You need to have on a high factor sunscreen. Your skin becomes more sensitive to UV rays after having the Laser Hair Removal Treatment, so make sure you protect your skin.

 

Don’t apply makeup

So no foundation, powder, concealer or any sort of makeup on the area to be treated. Having makeup on the area could lead to skin burns while having the treatment.

 

Do avoid sun exposure

You should avoid sun exposure while undergoing the treatment. Excessive exposure to sun could damage your skin as it is now more sensitive to UV rays.

 

 

Excessive hair growth can be very uncomfortable for a lot of women. So if you feel you need to get rid off your body hairs, you should look into having a Laser Hair Removal Treatment done. Pulse Light Clinic offer this treatment in London. They have 3 clinics at the moment and you can find them at –

Laser Hair Removal Update

If you are a regular reader of Fashion and Style Police, then you will know all about my laser hair removal journey (well if you didn’t know, you do now). I decided to have the Laser Hair Removal done on my chin because I found the hairs annoying, and I found threading very painful and inconvenient.

 

 

I had 6 sessions done between 2015-2016, and my chin has been hair free for months now, which is beyond fabulous. From needing a threading session done every month, to not needing any form of hair removal for months feels so good. I can’t remember seeing my chin look this good. I thought I would have needed to get a touch-up session done by now, but I am glad to say I am yet to need one.

For anyone thinking of having a laser hair removal done, I would recommend you go for it! It is definitely one of the best cosmetic treatments I have ever done, and I would do it over and over again, if I had the chance. However do make sure you do you are 100% happy with the laser clinic before you part with your cash.

Here are 5 things you should know before starting your laser hair removal treatment –

  1. Go for clinics with the latest laser technologies, City Hair Removal London Clinic is a great laser clinic to check out.
  2. Go for clinics that offer free consultation.
  3. Go for clinics that offer finance options for payment to help spread the cost of treatment if needed.
  4. Have a patch test before you begin treatment, so you see how your skin reacts to the laser.
  5. All laser hair removal treatments should be performed by highly trained therapists certified on each machine.
