With Memorial Day behind us and the summer season officially begun, we’ve only got one thing on our minds: the “body hair” conundrum. On one hand, all anyone wants to do is be out in the sun, enjoying the beautiful and warm weather while wearing as little as possible, on the other – countless hours have to be wasted removing unwanted body hair in order to do and wear what we want, and we haven’t even mentioned the beach yet!
If you are sick of this constant “hair removal cycle” like we are, then read on…
You’ve probably heard of the laser hair removal treatments offered by salons, but the prices or time commitments might not be for you. Well, there are other permanent hair removal options that can be done at home for a fraction of the price. The technology for permanent hair removal devices is quite advanced and varied, it can be difficult to decide what is the right fit for you, here is a simple guide to help you make that decision and ultimately, free up your time to enjoy the summer:
Electrolysis – this is the oldest hair removal method of the bunch, 135 years old to be exact, it uses electricity, delivered directly to each hair follicle, to damage and ultimately kill hair, one by one. The treatment is very effective but is very slow and tedious compared with typical newer technologies.
Laser hair removal – a concentrated energy beam is directed at hair follicles thereby destroying them, as with electrolysis, the beam is directed at each hair separately one after the other. The device can be adjusted for power and other settings to tailor it for best effectiveness for individual skin and hair. It reduces hair growth over time.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) – produces a broad spectrum high-intensity light at multiple wavelengths. Instead of targeting one hair at a time, IPL device technology is able to cover patches of hair at one time, speeding up the process. This technology is improving quickly and is being reported as even more effective than laser hair removal.
HPL (Home Pulsed Light) – this technology is the same as IPL but specifically developed for home use by Silk’n. It produces pulses of light energy that target patches of hair and destroying each hair follicle in that area thereby stunting hair growth. Silkn SensEpil XL 65,000 is a great permanent hair removal option for the body as well as the face for home use, while Silk’n flash&Go Motion works on the body and face, and is ideal for use while on the go, meaning even when traveling you can conveniently continue your permanent hair removal regimen. Quick, easy, and painless.
Now you won’t have to worry about hairy armpits or legs! Enjoy your smooth and fair free summer, and all the summers to come!
