Laser hair removal has been the ‘fashionable’ way to remove that unwanted hair over the past few years.
Being commercially available for members of the public since the 1990’s and now having the ease of being able to do it in the comfort of your own home, with devices designed for use by non-trained experts is it any wonder that it's become fashionable?
But what does the actual process involve?
Laser hair removal is a high-heat laser that zaps the hair follicle, damaging it and eventually semi-permanently halting the regrowth of hair.
To kill the hair off, the laser detects and targets anything that is dark - the hair and hair root, and then zaps it. It aims to kill off the follicle, by the light from the laser being absorbed by the root and converted into heat energy which heats up the hair and its root to be destroyed.
It works best on those who have lighter skin and darker hair, and this is because the laser can’t (at this moment in time) differentiate between skin and hair.
So if you are to have darker skin the laser isn’t going to pick up all of the hair follicles it needs to, leading you to not having all the hair removed. The same is true for those who have lighter skins and lighter colour hair.
Side note - you cannot apply any fake tan of any sort when you are having laser hair removal as this will inhibit its success.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
In short no! But it does provide you with long lasting hair-free results for anywhere between six to twelve months.
To become hair free for this amount of time, you will have to have several sessions that are spaced apart, and once the six to twelve months are up, you’ll most likely need to have a few follow up sessions, as this is where the follicle will start to become active once more.
Although it provides a good solution to hair removal on a semi-permanent basis, it does have its downsides.
Such as not working on all people, only lasting up to a year (depending on your hair growth), it takes a few sessions with a set time between sessions to achieve complete hairlessness.
Did we mention that it hurts? Often related to that of an elastic band hitting you repeatedly. If you’re having this treatment at a salon then you’ll find that they normally blow cool air on the area they are lasering or use an ice cube too.
It is also extremely expensive, no matter whether you go to a salon for treatment, or buy a laser hair removal device at home.
Sessions can cost up to £400 per visit, and to buy an at home kit the cost starts from around the £500 mark.
And at the end of the day, you aren’t going to achieve permanent hair removal.
If you are wanting to stop unwanted hair growth permanently, then there is another solution.
Waxing and FRÉNÉSIES cream
No matter if you’re wanting to remove hair from your body, face or if you’re a gentleman looking to get rid of your unwanted hair, FRÉNÉSIES have three types of cream available, all adapted to the area they’ll be treated to give you smooth and hairless skin.
The cream works to stop the hair from growing once the whole hair has been fully removed from its follicle, via waxing.
After one cycle of use, you will find that the hair that does grow back will be thinner, paler in colour and much weaker.
For the scientifically developed cream to have full effect, you’ll find that you’ll need between two to four cycles of application, but in extreme cases, six cycles might be needed.
All the creams have been developed using natural and scientifically proven ingredients that will block the hair growth action from deep within the follicle.
They’ve been proven to be an effective, safer and a healthier way to natural stop hair regrowth than any other hair removal method available.
The cream will not only work hard at eliminating your unwanted hair growth but will moisturise intensely and with its anti-inflammatory properties, will help to reduce any redness and inflammation caused by waxing.
Laser hair removal is a great method of hair removal, but if you’re truly wanting to be hair free on a more permanent basis, FRÉNÉSIES is the cream you’ll need.
