Laser Hair Removal or Electrolysis?

Laser Hair Removal or Electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a hair removal process that has been used for many years. While it was considered a breakthrough technology for its time, it is now obsolete due to the advanced technology of laser hair removal.  Electrolysis uses an electric current and needles to help block the growth of new hair. This painful process is inferior to hair removal laser treatment, which is much more advanced and has many advantages over electrolysis. Our next series of articles will discuss this in further detail.

Electrolysis is Only Effective on Certain Types of Hair

Electrolysis is very limited because it is only effective on small hair follicles, such as those around the eyes. Laser hair removal using a true medical laser is effective on all types and colors of skin and hair, regardless of the size of the follicle.

Laser Hair Removal is Fast

Hair removal laser treatment averages only a few minutes for each treatment.  Some laser hair removal treatments such as full legs laser and full body hair removal can take longer due to the larger surface area. However, with electrolysis, even smaller treatment areas can take up to 60 minutes to complete.  That is quite a long time, especially since the electrolysis process has been described by many as being extremely painful.
