1. WHAT IS HAIR REMOVAL?
Hair removal refers to the procedure where unwanted hairs are removed from the bikini areas. This is usually done with shaving, using depilatory creams, waxing, threading, tweezing, plucking and electrolysis. All these methods of hair removal are painful, temporary and time consuming. Some like shaving and waxing may cause red bumps or ingrown hairs and open wounds resulting in infections.
A more permanent method to remove unwanted hairs is to use light energy either in the form of intense pulse light (IPL) or laser light. These two methods provide long term results, which offer periods of up to 6 weeks between visible hair growth and a permanent reduction in the amount of hair re-growth. Eventually with enough treatments, more than 80-90% of hairs will be permanently removed. The remaining hairs that will grow back are finer and shorter hairs, lighter in colour and almost not visible.
