Once you understand how Chicago Laser Hair Removal works you will probably ask “Why wouldn’t I do this? It’s so much better than the other hair removal methods, this is obviously the way I should get rid of that hair I don’t want!” So the question is, “Why are you still waxing?” or “Why am I using that messy depilatory cream?” Laser hair removal just makes so much sense. More traditional hair removal methods like shaving, plucking, waxing, and depilatory creams can only provide a temporary fix at best. It’s true that electrolysis provides a way to permanently remove unwanted hair. But laser hair removal is so much faster, less painful and less expensive. In most cases, it simply does not make sense to do electrolysis when laser hair removal is available. Compared to laser hair removal, electrolysis is a painful and tedious process that requires a specially trained person to remove unwanted hair one hair at a time. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, will safely and effectively remove unwanted body hair much faster, without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. In most cases where you opt for laser hair removal Chicago, facial and bikini areas can be completed in less than 10 minutes. Being larger areas, legs, backs, and larger areas can take somewhat longer. But nothing like the time it takes to do electrolysis. Of course, you will be concerned about the cost. If you are familiar with electrolysis you know that using that method is slow and can require treatments over several months, and is therefore quite expensive. Because laser hair removal is so much faster it is also much less expensive. Generally speaking, the cost of laser hair removal in Chicago is determined by the size of the area you have treated. Treatments at the Lapel clinic, for example, start at less than $60. The way laser hair removal works is quite ingenious. A gentle beam of light is emitted by the treatment device and this beam of light is moved over the treatment area. As the light passes through the skin it is absorbed by hair follicles in the area. The light energy is then transformed into heat which renders the hair follicle damaged and no longer able to produce hair. The process is almost always pain-free, and there is little to no damage to the surrounding skin. Always consult a doctor or other medical professional before taking any medical advice.
