Epilation is the process of removing hair by destroying hair follicles or eliminating nap directly from its root so that it does not grow back for a very long time.
There are no hair removal procedures that grant permanent effects since the technology used only affects existing hair. Thus, the effectiveness of epilation depends on the number of procedures necessary to obtain satisfactory long-lasting results and the characteristics of the patient's body.
Hair removal by electrolysis is considered to be an outdated method, but it is still an effective procedure, and its market has barely any competitors. During the process, a special needle destroys nap follicles with current discharges. It is an almost effortless procedure that leaves little to no remains behind. If during the process any hair is pulled out instead of being destroyed, it will regrow. The process needs to repeat to remove remaining hair at a later date.
Laser hair removal is harmless and almost painless and takes less time than an electrolysis treatment. The electrolysis burns the nap, which destroys both the follicle and the root from which it grows. The hairs that remain on the surface of the skin, after the procedure, can only be waxed and removed after two weeks. It is crucial to wait one and a half to two weeks without pulling them out and waxing them off so that they fall out on their own. The session takes a little time: the shin - 20 minutes, the legs completely - 40, and the bikini zone can be done in just 10-15. Several types of lasers differ in the wavelength of the emitted light and the duration of the pulses.
This procedure helps achieve a quick visible result, but much patience needed to remove hair entirely. Intense pulsed light removes bulbs. The flash of the beam "kills" the nap when it is in the growth phase, and during the next 20 days it falls out. The trick is to catch this phase. Otherwise, the hair will appear again, just thinner and lighter. It will become almost invisible, but not completely removed.
Everyone considered this method very effective and safe before. However, the high cost and a large number of restrictions markedly reduced the number of its fans. The combined effect of the energy of the light beam and the electric current helps to destroy the hairs in the growth stage. Externally, the procedure is no different from a photo or laser.
