What is Laser Hair Removal?
Shaving and tweezing are now things of the past with the introduction of Laser Hair Removal, a medical procedure which uses quick pulses of laser to remove unwanted hair from all over the body. The concentrated beam of light is absorbed by a pigment called melanin present in hair. It damages the hair follicles, which produce hair, and inhibits any further growth. Naturally, it is more effective for people with fairer complexion and dark hair because there is more pigment present in dark hair. Studies show that it is less effective on white or blonde hair because they absorb less light.
Why is it Popular?
Laser Hair Removal is on demand because there are a good number of customers who want to get rid of unwanted hair around the armpits, legs, and above the upper lip, among others. They no longer have to shave or tweeze their way to smooth, hairless skin. On top of that, Laser Hair Removal is one of the procedures done for vaginal bleaching when done to remove unwanted hair in intimate areas. The same is true for anal bleaching.
What are the risks of Hair Laser Removal?
Laser Hair Removal, like most things, is a double-edged sword. As much as it has advantages, it also entails disadvantages including skin irritation and pigment changes. During and after the process, there is temporary discomfort because of the heat. Thus, medical practitioners often apply a cooling gel on the area to soothe the skin. There could also be redness and swelling. Rest assured, these symptoms disappear quicker than you might think. Depending on the skin type and colour of hair, one may also experience changes in pigment. It could cause a darker or lighter complexion; also this usually happens to people who do not avoid exposure to too much sun. In the small likelihood, some customers experience blistering, crusting or scarring.
Laser Hair Removal at Home
With the advent of new and improved technologies, customers can now take their laser hair removal experience into the comforts of their home as an alternative to going to the doctor. It is efficient and a lot more affordable. After all, one session of laser hair removal can range from $50 to $900 depending on the area of the body. Imagine that! A portable laser can be bought for as low as $50, a one-time payment. This is one of the reasons why laser hair removal at home is becoming more and more popular as a trend! Of course, one may have to be more careful. At the moment, professionals are still the ones you can rely on in terms of knowledge and skill at removing hair with the use of a laser. So while doing it at home is an alternative, keep in mind the risks and disadvantages.
Vaginal and Anal Bleaching
Laser Hair Removal, when combined with other medical and aesthetic procedures, is one of the ways to achieve a lighter complexion of intimate areas. The summer of 2019 is quickly approaching, and there is a huge demand for services aimed at improving self-esteem as people go to the beach or the pool in their new swimming attire, especially for women. Vaginal Bleaching is one of the most popular medical procedures which promise a fairer complexion in the intimate area for women. It’s one of the new treatments popping up and gaining attention worldwide. Vaginal Bleaching is also known as intimate area whitening. It aims to remove genital discolouration around the vulva with the use of chemical or laser treatments. The same treatments can also be used in Anal Bleaching.
Despite gaining popularity from all over the world, medical practitioners have expressed their reservations about vaginal bleaching, whether done by a professional or simply at home. This applies to anal bleaching as well. The reason is that the colour of the intimate areas is as natural as it can get, and there is nothing wrong about it—medically speaking. Some have expressed that the procedure is unnecessary, and the use of chemicals and laser can cause hyperpigmentation or worse, damage the area exposed to the treatment. So before you make an appointment with the doctor, and before you purchase a portable laser for hair removal, don’t be afraid to think twice!
