Electrolysis vs Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Laser hair removal method gives you a permanent hair reduction, whereas Electrolysis hair removal method will give you a permanent hair removal without re-growing. Laser treatment will only disable the follicle and it is not advisable for all skin types. Unlike laser treatment, electrolysis can be used on anyone regardless of skin type or hair color. Laser requires less time compared to electrolysis hair removal, Electrolysis takes long time because; it treat each follicle individually. Laser treatment involves a burning sensation and is dangerous for our eyes if the laser light comes in contact with eyes while removing the eyebrows. Electrolysis is less painful and it will kill the hair growth capacity and it is a safe method for eyebrow removal. The only thing you have to keep in mind while doing Electrolysis hair removal method is; if electrolysis is not done properly it will cause skin discoloration. So always choose the right place for the treatment.
