If history can provide any comfort
Since the Ancient Egyptians (and probably before that), when women removed all of their body hair with seashell tweezers, we’ve been trying to find a way to manage that unwanted hair. During Roman times, women and men used everything from flint and pumice stones and tweezers to creams and waxes in efforts to remove excess hair, even from the pubic area. (It’s historically accurate that many depictions of Grecian women show them hairless there.)
Hair removal becomes a little groovier in the 1960s
That decade will always be remembered (maybe only by those of us in the beauty industry), as the beginning of the era of modern hair removal. That’s when wax strips became the top method for removing unwanted hair. Undertaken by experts, the results, if not the pain level, could be quite pleasing. But perhaps even more significant, the 60s is the decade that lasers were first used as a permanent hair removal method. But lasers were still too harsh on the skin back then. Aren’t we glad we live now?
Today’s lasers offer results that the Romans would appreciate
The established option for quick, safe and effective permanent reduction of unwanted hair is accomplished with a beam of high-intensity laser light, penetrating the skin to destroy the hair root.
Now you can use your time more wisely
Depending on your hair type and the size of the area to be treated, you will need about six laser treatment sessions, to reduce or permanently remove your unwanted hair, anywhere from four to eight weeks apart. That’s instead of a lifetime of plucking, shaving and waxing.
