For years, people who have been suffering from excessive hair growth resorted to manual remedies such as plucking, tweezing, shaving, waxing and some unconventional methods like chemical depilatories and bleaching. Sadly, none of these methods have provided a permanent cure for the ailment. The person suffering from excessive hair growth has to regularly undergo these treatments to minimize the unwanted growth of excessive hair.
Thankfully, the laser hair removal system has been introduced in the cosmetic world as a viable remedy. With this process, the patient would be able to get rid of unsightly and unwanted hair on a more or less permanent basis. All it takes is a few minutes per session, and around 2 to 4 sessions during the period of the treatment, with each session being conducted every 6 to 8 months from each other.
The laser hair removal system eliminates the excessive growth of unwanted and unsightly hair by burning the follicles themselves. Follicles are responsible for hair growth, and getting rid of the same is tantamount to eliminating the plant by cutting off the roots. The result is as equally fantastic. After the first session, a substantial decrease of hair growth would be experienced. With additional sessions, a lasting absence of hair growth would be enjoyed.
Sadly, the process is being met with many doubts in certain sectors. Quite a number of people are hesitant to use this alternative because of the negative perception about the treatment. Such negative perception, however, is to be expected for any new idea, novel technologies included. The fact is, treatment through a laser hair removal system is perfectly safe, and whatever side effects that may be experienced as a result of a session with the same is slight and harmless.
Skin irritation after treatment is experienced by around 23% of patients, and the majority of them are those who have very sensitive skin. The irritation is never grave, however, and does subside after a few hours. On rare occasions, very slight burns can be experienced, especially by patients who have dark complexion and lighter colored hair. This is because the laser experiences some difficulty in hitting its mark, causing some focus problems. Light is best absorbed by darker colors, after all. Nonetheless, burns such as these are never severe, and the stinging sensation usually lasts for a few days at most.
All in all, the treatment is a very effective remedy to Hirsutism. Do consider the process whenever you want a permanent solution to unsightly and unwanted hair.
