If you are looking for treatments that can help with permanent hair removal, both electrolysis and laser hair removal are effective. They target hair follicles that are located under the skin’s surface, and the most common question people have regarding these treatment options is the amount of pain they cause.
It’s natural to wonder about this aspect, and electrolysis is the more painful of the two. During this treatment, a device is inserted into the skin and shortwaves are used in the hair follicles to stop the growth of new hair while causing the existing hairs to fall out. Multiple sessions will be required to achieve the best results, and this treatment is considered more painful when compared to laser hair removal. This is because electrolysis removes the hairs from your body individually, which results in more pain and the probe that is inserted into the body removes the hair from the follicles through a tweezer. While the probe is very fine, it will still cause pain, although patients will generally not see any permanent side effects other than the temporary reddening of the skin, which can sometimes occur.
Laser hair removal is a lot less painful, and the process is also a lot faster. You may feel some discomfort during the treatments, however, the process is a lot more bearable when compared to electrolysis, and this is why more and more people are turning to this option. It takes less time to see results, and not as many sessions are required, so these are also reasons why this particular treatment is more popular.
Laser hair removal and electrolysis will both produce long-lasting effects and are considered permanent solutions to unwanted hair growth. Maintenance sessions will likely still be required but the results are far more permanent than shaving. In order to choose the treatment option that is best for you, you must consider the area of your body that you would like to treat and your pain tolerance, as these can help with your decision.
Regardless of which option you choose, you need to make sure you find a reputable dermatologist or esthetician to perform these services because there are knowledge and skill involved, and an inexperienced person can damage your skin or harm you in the process. Look for professional qualifications when making your decision and check to see that the person is licensed or certified to offer these services. Knowing this information will provide you with peace of mind because you will know that you are in good hands.
