These days, many plastic surgery facilities also offer non-surgical cosmetic treatments, ranging from Botox injections to one of the most popular treatments in the world today, laser hair removal. You can find a vast online directory of hair removal clinics at Plastic Surgery Portal's sister sites Hair Removal Forum and Healthy Skin Portal. In the meantime, PSP if happy to offer a closer look at what so-called "permanent hair removal" actually entails.
When it comes to permanently removing hair from the face and body, there are very few hair removal methods that can produce truly "permanent" results. Electrolysis is one hair removal method that is known to achieve permanent hair removal, while Laser Hair Removal is an equally popular industry choice for long-lasting hair-free results.
Laser hair removal, although it doesn't offer the same permanence as electrolysis, is considered to be a safer and faster process for near permanent hair removal. Electrolysis also uses needles or metal probes to tediously target each hair follicle, whereas laser hair removal uses non-invasive, light-based technology that can be focused on larger treatment areas. Additionally, the needles used for electrolysis have been known to cause patients pain during treatment, as well as infection if they're not sterilized properly. Laser hair removal as a permanent hair removal method can cause some discomfort during treatment, but there are no serious risks involved, and treatments can take as little as 15-30 minutes.
Laser hair removal is not only safe and fast, it's also one of the only methods of near permanent hair removal that can successfully be used on any area of the body. Due to the small scope of electrolysis treatments, they are usually only effective on areas of the face. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, can guarantee permanent hair removal for up to two years on the face, chest, back, bikini line, buttocks, legs, arms, underarms, etc.
Permanent hair removal results with laser hair removal, previously unavailable to dark-skinned, light-haired patients, are now possible for all skin and hair types, thanks to the latest laser technologies to hit the market. To find out how you can achieve near permanent hair removal results with laser hair removal, consult a trusted cosmetic specialist in your area. They can answer your questions about laser hair removal, and recommend the best, most effective treatment plan based on your individual skin conditions.
