About Face Hair Removal Via Laser And ElectrolsisI am using both laser and elect, laser only works on dark hair against fair skin. The darker the skin, or the whiter the hair the less effective it is.
I had quite a full bush mustache and beard on the chin that was still dark, I have had 1 treatment and it has been 6 weeks with no sign that there is any dark hair left growing. Despite the rumors, once the follical is damaged to not grow chair by the laser it will never grow hair again.
The elect is used for grey to white hairs, mostily my side chops, under the chin and some on both upper and lower lips. I have had 6x treatments of elect, each time removing the hair one by one and an hour costs $65, and it removes roughly 250 hairs covering an area about a 3" circle.
This will have to be done several time I am told as electr only does slight damage to the follical each pass so eventually it too ceases to grow hair.
The results I have had to the single laser is nothing short of amazing, but then the flash does warm a spot up to almost 300 degrees F in an instant and it feels like the tip of a very hot knife was placed on your skin then removed. I was told this is not typical and usually needs 3-4 treatments, the cost was $175 for the full face and front neck areas. It took 25 minutes to complete.
Both make use of a creme of Lanocain which numbs up the surface of the skin reducing the pain. You apply a thick coat and then place saran wrap pieces over the top to reduce the evaporation while you get your butt to the office lol.
Elect pain is varying from nothing to a wasp sting if you have ever had it, it takes a moment to fade away lingering and reminds me that there is a price to pay for beauty
I have less then 25% of white hair only and most of my face is on the 2nd pass thru with the electro, I have very easy to see areas where it takes now 2 weeks to see stubble that is white anyways, any my face skin with the work of the hormones has turned very soft, and of coarse I do a nightly routine on my face with lotions and things, and a face mud every weekend the past 3.
My nose and ear hairs are kept up using a cutter I bought on ebay for $10, it uses AA batteries and is simple as anything to use.
Details make me feel right, these things have helped me feel better every day, I seem to have a smile on most of the time something my family said has been missing.
