Remember the days of hair removal by waxing? That is a method whereby the hairs on someone’s legs are pulled out with a swift rip of a cloth strip that looks like a giant adhesive bandage. In the last generation or so, there was even wax that people would melt in a pot on a hot stove. The hot wax is then applied straight onto the legs and within minutes, the wax would harden. Instead of using a cloth strip to remove the wax, the user would simply rip the hardened wax off her legs along with any unwanted hair. Then the used wax would be melted again on the stove to be reused. Somehow, the thought of reused wax with all that unwanted hair swirling around in the pot doesn’t sound very pleasant. Imagine applying that hot wax to your armpits and ripping it off your armpits. That would be tantamount to mild torture in some people’s eyes. We live in fortunate times these days in that we have other pain-free options for hair removal.
Laser Hair Removal
At places like cosmetic clinics Brighton, they offer laser hair removal, which uses a special light to either remove body and facial hair permanently at the roots or reduce the amount of hair by making it finer and lighter. Some clients of laser hair removal report minimal to no pain with the “pain” described as feeling like a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Typically, in order to remove hair from the body, laser hair removal treatments would be performed every 8 to 10 weeks and to remove hair from the face, every 4 to 6 weeks would be required. Cosmetic clinics Brighton ensure that their laser hair removal treatments are safe by hiring only experienced clinicians who are registered nurses and paramedically trained skin therapists who have laser safety certification. An extensive consultation is conducted beforehand to determine if the treatment is suitable for a client because the effectiveness of a laser hair removal treatment depends on the client’s skin colour and hair colour. Medical-grade machines which are FDA and TGA approved and lasers with patented cooling devices are used at cosmetic clinics Brighton to further ensure a safe and comfortable treatment.
