At a certain age, you will find hair sprouting out of your skin in the oddest places. This is typically the result of the body’s decreased production of estrogen. For some women, it’s not a big deal. Getting rid of unwanted hair is just a matter of having a tweezer with them at all times.
However, for others, unwanted hair is not just a case of a few strands on the chin and upper lip. Due to hormonal changes, they can deal with what men refer to as the “5 o’clock” shadow. There’s a trail of both fine and thick, coarse hair under the chin and jawline. It’s rather attractive on men, but for women — not at all.
In addition to that, women entering menopause, or are menopausal, as well as those with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) can grow thick and coarse hair in the following places, too:
- Lower back
- Spot between the brows
Such a hairy problem, needless to say, can trigger feelings of embarrassment or self-consciousness.
Of course, these are modern times. There are different solutions available for banishing pesky, unwanted hair. Shaving, for instance, is the easiest — pain-free too. However, after a day or even just several hours, for some women, the smooth skin starts showing signs of stubble.
Waxing, on the other hand, offers longer-lasting results. The problem is, apart from the long-ish process of melting the wax, and then letting it cool slightly so it doesn’t burn the skin, it’s a painful activity. Pulling out a big patch of hair from the roots at the same time always hurts. And, hair grows back despite many sessions of enduring the pain.
All other accessible solutions — including laser hair removal — hair reduction and not full clearance. Therefore, to free yourself of unwanted hair, you will have to resign yourself to regular upkeep until a time comes when you truly don’t care anymore.
But, if you want to be liberated permanently from unwanted hair, there is a solution, and it’s in the form of electrolysis.
Permanent Hair Removal through Electrolysis
Electrolysis, in a nutshell, is a hair removal system that gets rid of hair from the roots. It destroys hair follicles through machine-generated heat, halting the ability for regrowth.
Licensed electrologists study the coarseness of the hair to be removed and work with the machine to determine the intensity of the treatment correctly. But, should you feel greatly uncomfortable at any point of the session, feel free to tell your electrologist. Adjustments can be made without compromising the results.
Leading Advantages of Electrolysis
Apart from being a permanent hair removal system, electrolysis can also be used in most parts of the body. The only areas where electrolysis is not advised is inside the nose and ears where it’s too vascular and infection is a high risk.
Also, electrolysis can be done on most people, unlike laser hair removal. So, it does not matter if you are blonde or red-haired; you can expect to be cleared for electrolysis.
The procedure leads to smooth and supple skin, making the application of skin-boosters more effective instead of irritating for some. With electrolysis, you do not have to worry about scarring. Skin damage is a high likelihood with shaving, waxing, threading, and even the use of depilatory creams.
Perhaps, the best advantage is the convenience electrolysis provides. After a certain number of electrolysis appointments or sessions, you will be hair-free. You can look forward to the rest of your life with a much shorter and faster beauty routine, totally free from unwanted hair care.
Electrolysis is not a pain-free process. Trained electrologists will not work with anesthesia to prevent overtreatment. This is because there’s always the danger of overtreatment when a client is numb to pain. This can lead to some complications.
However, with the latest electrolysis technology, the process can be carried out faster and more accurately. This can automatically reduce the physical discomfort of the treatment. Studies show that the latest machine used for electrolysis diminishes pain levels by up to 40 percent. Clients with a high threshold for pain even say that they can sleep through the treatment.
And lastly, when you choose to banish unwanted hair with this method, after-care should be a part of the service package. Leading electrolysis centers provide clients with a special facial after every session to restore the treated area and promote faster healing.
