The warm months may be over, but unwanted hair is a year-round problem. Shaving and waxing are always options, but these require regular maintenance and can damage the skin. Here are AFYA we offer three great treatments that safely remove unwanted hair from the face and body.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective treatments out there for hair removal. It works by using a laser that is attracted to the pigmentation at the base of hair follicles. The laser enters the hair follicle, destroying the base with a quick burst of heat. This destroys the unwanted hair without damaging the skin.
Laser removal lasts far longer than shaving or waxing. Facial areas only need it every 4-6 weeks. Body hair lasts about every 6-8 weeks. The one downside of laser hair removal is that it only works well on darker hair.
Electrolysis Hair Removal
Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal option that works great on all hair types. This is the option we recommend for clients with lighter hair, especially white, grey, blonde and red hairs. Electrolysis works by using a probe that distributes heat and energy to the root of the hair. This destroys the root of the hair for permanent hair removal.
Dermaplaning is a treatment used both for hair removal and skin exfoliation. A specially designed exfoliation blade is used to remove the outer layers of dead skin and hair. This is a great treatment for removing very fine vellus hair that lasers don’t remove.
