Using an Epilation Laser
The Problem Of Unwanted Body Hair
Hair is something, which is both wanted and unwanted by most of us at the same time. We want
it on our scalp, so that we do not get bald and look bad as a result. However, when it comes to unwanted bodily
hair, no one wants to have that hair. That is why a lot of methods, techniques and gadgets have been devised in
order to take care of that.
The first method of getting rid of unwanted is by shaving. This is by far the easiest and cheapest method
to employ since razors and shaving foams are easily available. However, it is a temporary method of hair removal
and the hair that grows back tends to be quite stronger and thicker. That is why it is not a very popular method
amongst women. Besides, no one likes the irritation that is caused by growing hair and the cuts that may be
received as a result of shaving.
Another method of removing unwanted hair is called Epilation. In simple words, it is a fancy
name for plucking. This is by far the least expensive method as a pair of hair pluckers is found in the beauty box
of every woman.
However, it is also the most time consuming method, as no one has the time to sit in front of
a mirror and pluck hair one by one.
That is why with the passage of time and the advancement of
technology, Epilation machines were invented, which were first put to commercial use in the 1960s.
At that time, they were only found at beauty salons but now, they have grown small in size
and are found in every house. They have now taken the form of small hand held machines that have small tweezers
running at high speeds for the removal of unwanted hair. Another technological breakthrough has made use of lasers
to make something, which is known as an Epilation Laser.
An Epilation Laser is a machine that makes use of a laser beam in order to target the hair
root and burns it so that the hair cannot grow again. This mode of action causes the hair root to lose its grip and
the hair to come out without any significant pain, thus name Epilation Laser is given to it, since the method
resembles plucking, but without any pain involved.
An Epilation Laser is therefore considered to be a permanent way of hair removal, because it
destroys the hair root and prevents it permanently from growing again. That is why hair removal through laser is
now fast becoming the method of choice for those who want to rid of unwanted hair permanently. However, it also
happens to be one of the most expensive hair removal treatments as well.
Although the technology is considered to be state of the art, an Epilation Laser still has some
noteworthy side effects. For normal skin types, the most visible effect is the redness of the area over which laser
has been used. This can either be the result of increased blood flow to the concerned area in order to repair the
damaged hair, or it can be the result of inflammation caused by the use of a little high intensity of laser. People
with dark skins have the tendency to develop blisters and light skinned people may experience skin fading for even
