Laser or electrolysis for darker skins

Laser or electrolysis for darker skins

Laser is the preferred method of permanent hair removal,  but can everyone benefit from it? The combination of light skin colour and dark hair is ideal.  Why?  Laser destroys dark hair better than lighter hair because the darker the hair root is, the more laser is attracted to it.  However, it could also be attracted to dark pigment in the skin itself which could cause damage.  Therefore, lighter skin will tolerate higher treatment levels and will respond more quickly because of it. Dark skins...

The plusses of pulses

Go with  laser: When the hair is visibly dark and there’s a lot (a few dozen or more).

Have you heard that laser isn’t permanent?

Why the confusion about the permanence of laser? Electrologists provided the first and only permanent relief from disfiguring hair for over 110 years.  Then in the 1980’s a new method emerged that would be a real game changer in this field.  For sufferers of hirsutism, what a blessing!  A  faster, easier solution was on the way.  It appeared that dark hairs could be targeted without an invasive time and consuming treatment. Photo energy beamed into the skin, could instantaneously destroy...

Discomfort and other concerns

Discomfort and other concerns

The sensation you experience  is dependent on several factors ….the area treated, the amount of hair in that area, power settings and individual tolerance levels. The intensity may be compared to that of waxing. The type of sensation may be compared to snapping of a rubber band on your skin, or you may feel heat. Usually, if you can tolerate waxing procedures, you can tolerate this.  If you’re apprehensive, a product we recommend as an analgesic is 5% Lidocaine which you can be...

More on Laser vs Electrolysis

Did you know that both laser and electrolysis remove hair permanently, and that they have some quite important differences you should know about?  How much hair are you targeting, and what colour is it? Electrolysis treats one hair at a time, approximately 200-800 hairs per hour.  example. Laser can treat thousands. Because electrolysis is less costly per hour than laser, the rule is, if you have only a few hairs to treat (e.g. less than 100), it would make more sense to go with electrolysis. ...
