What is Facial & Body Hair?
Every person on the planet experiences facial and body hair in unwanted regions. Whether it be on the face, underarms, chest, or back, body hair has a way of sneaking up on us in the most unsuspecting places!
How Can It Be Treated?
Hair removal is used to reduce unwanted hair whether it be your body or facial hair. The most common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, bikini line and genital area. An individual’s hair colour and skin type will influence what hair removal process will be safe and give best result. There are different ways of hair removal which include laser hair removal, electrolysis, shaving, waxing and threading.
Depending on your hair type, certain hair removal methods will be better suited for you. Ashgrove Spa offers hair removal services based on whether you are looking to remove hair temporarily or permanently.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a permanent hair reduction method that uses laser light to destroy the hair follicle and stunt hair growth. Unlike other hair removal methods, there is no risk of bumps, stubble or ingrown hair. The duration of the treatment varies widely depending on the color of your hair and your skin type. For example, if you have dark hair and light skin, it will take less time to remove the hair because there is a stark difference in pigment that allows the laser to focus in on the hair.
Electrolysis involves passing an electrical current at small areas of the body through a hair follicle, which damages the follicle and prevents new hair growth.
While waxing is not permanent, it does provide longer-lasting results than shaving. Waxing involves removing the hair from the root using sticky wax to hold the hair as close to the base as possible. Clients typically see new growth within two to eight weeks. One of the benefits people see with waxing is that you are able to do larger areas of your body in a shorter period of time.
Threading involves using a twisted piece of thread to remove larger amounts of hair with laser-like accuracy. Threading is a great option for sensitive skin. This is because there are no substances touching your skin, it simply removes the hair with no fuss.
