When you have made the decision to rid yourself of unwanted hair there are two choices to consider electrolysis and laser. As with electrolysis, cases of scarring have been reported, but these are extremely rare. Compared with electrolysis, laser hair removal is more precise and much faster.

The solidity of hair growth varies from person to person. The enhancement of the male hormones due to puberty causes conversion of hair growth in different parts of the body. The velocity of hair growth and its weight also increases. Nevertheless, different areas respond with different levels of hair growth. The pubic area is in fact the most responsive which reflects the hair growth at a very early stage.

Laser Hair Removal is growing rapidly in popularity as men and women become more conscious of their body image. Most people who have a lot of hair on their body are embarrassed when going to any type of event that involves taking off clothing. When people go swimming in the summer most people are embarrassed about taking of their clothing because of the hair on their body. The removal of body hair is becoming more widespread and prevalent because in today’s world no hair is sexier.

Hormonal changes also affect hair growth. It is very common for a woman to see more facial hair growth after discontinuing the use of birth control pills. When a woman of child bearing age comes into my office and tells me that they have suddenly noticed more hair growth on their face, I am inclined to ask if they recently went off the pill: most often the answer is yes!

Laser hair removal is becoming popular amongst the men too. There are people who want to show their worked up physique and muscles. They get rid of the thick coating of hair on the chest, back and legs by laser therapy. People in the show business, models etc often need to remove unwanted hair for better professional prospects.

There are about 1000 hair follicles on every square inch of skin. Any single hair that you pull out with tweezing, waxing, or threading won’t come back for almost 3 months, so the hairs you are pulling out in the time between are brand new hairs! Pretty scary!! Each time you are tweezing, waxing, or threading hair, you are stimulating the other hair follicles in the area to make new hairs.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

  1. A non-invasive, gentle technique that eliminates undesirable hair from all parts of the body.
  2. Leaves skin looking smoother and silkier.
  3. Treats larger areas effectively because it removes more than one hair at a time.
  4. Minimal discomfort.
  5. Replaces waxing, electrolysis and razors.
  6. Immediate return to normal activities.

Gender reassignment from a male to a female might be another motivation why people go through hair removal. Before a transsexual goes through the Genital Reassignment Surgery from male to female, he must remove facial beard hair either by electrolysis or laser, or by using both procedures.
