Removing body hair dates back to 3000 BC, the Greeks were obsessed with having hairless smooth skin, they shaved their faces with sharp flint and the Egyptians used copper razors to get rid of unwanted hair. Sounds painful!
Throughout all the ages hair removal has been part of both male and female beauty regimes.
In the 1500s, big foreheads became the fashion and women were keen to pluck their eyebrows.
In the mid 1900’s razors came in for men to shave at home – saving them a trip to the barber and women were encouraged to have clean shaven armpits and legs.
Hair removal is a huge part of our lives in today’s society for both men and women and to be completely hair free is very popular.
So whether you pluck, thread, cream, shave, or wax … one of those options is likely to be part of your beauty regime, again and again.
There is so much fantastic technology today for hair removal and more permanent options that could ultimately save you time and money over the course of your hair removal life.
Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a powerful laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) to remove unwanted hair. This light source heats and destroys hair follicles in the skin, which disrupts hair growth.
Common areas to treat are the face, chest, legs, arms, underarms and bikini line.
In as little as four to six sessions, spaced about four weeks apart, you are likely to see 70 to 80 percent reduction in hair growth. It is recommended that you have maintenance sessions once a year for a couple of years to get the maximum benefit of your laser hair removal treatment.
