Electrolysis vs. Laser Hair Removal: Which is Right for You?

When it comes to permanent hair removal, there are several options to consider. Both men and women can safely and effectively get rid of unwanted facial and body hair with electrolysis and laser hair removal.

There are pros and cons to each method, so it all comes down to whether you have the right hair color and also your personal preference. Read through the benefits of both, and then decide which one is right for you.

Benefits of Electrolysis

With electrolysis, a very tiny probe is gently inserted into the hair follicle in the skin. The follicle is then destroyed when a low level electrical pulse is sent through the needle. The hair from that follicle will fall out, and it won’t return because the follicle has been rendered useless. It is currently the only form of permanent hair removal that is recognized by the FDA.

One of the best features of electrolysis is that it can be used to remove hair on any part of the body, including the face. It’s perfect for both men and women, and it is effective on people of all skin and hair colors, unlike laser hair removal. If you’re looking for a way to permanently remove unwanted hair from your upper lip, underarms, back, bikini zone, ears, or anywhere else, electrolysis is an excellent option.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal provides a safe and effective way for many people to remove unwanted hair. As the name suggests, a laser does the work of removing hair by heating up the pigment in the hair follicles, destroying the follicles while leaving the skin unharmed. It works best on people with darker hair, as the laser is unable to remove white or light hairs effectively.

The advanced lasers that are used at the Laser Hair Removal and Skin Clinic are able to remove those unwanted hairs from many areas of the body. It takes multiple sessions to see the final results, but there will definitely be a noticeable reduction in hair on treated areas after the very first session. The number of sessions that you will need depends on the amount of hair to be removed and the condition of your skin, so it may take anywhere from 4 to 8 treatments to achieve the desired outcome.

You will want to come into the clinic for a free consultation in order to determine which hair removal method best suits your individual needs. Both treatments are performed by a licensed, experienced Electrologist and Laser Hair Removal Practitioner, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands. Generally speaking, if you have darker hair, laser treatment may be the best option for you. If you have lighter hair to be removed, then you will want to opt for electrolysis.
