Laser Hair Removal vs Electrolysis

Laser Hair Removal vs Electrolysis

Postby Proudmoore » Fri Oct 24, 2014 5:02 am

Electrolysis versus laser hair removal, which is better to remove your facial hair? These are the two best methods for permanently getting rid of hair, or at least reducing the amount.

We know facial hair can be the most annoying of all unwanted hairs because we can’t hide it under clothing if we have to, like on the body. Everyone, but especially females who have struggled with a large amount of facial hair knows how annoying the process can be of constantly worrying about ways to get hairless.

Can I Use Either Method?

Laser: The mainstream laser unit can only be used on those with light skin and dark hair. It can burn those with dark skin and not give optimal results for people with light hair because the laser targets pigment (dark color). Advancement is being made in laser technology for those that don’t fit the light skin/dark hair profile using a combination of radio frequency and laser.

Electrolysis: Can be used on anyone despite their skin or hair color because it attacks the hair follicle itself, and not the pigment in the hair.
