The first thing that anyone looking into availing themselves of the various hair removal services being offered should realize is that the field is generally unregulated in all provinces. There are many laser hair removal salons in Lexington SC that provide hair removal services.
Therefore, it is very much a case of "caveat emptor" – buyer beware. There are only two effective technologies for permanent hair reduction – laser and electrolysis. They have one thing in common, in that they use heat energy to destroy the hair follicle.
The best thing for anyone contemplating hair removal treatments is to be very thorough in doing their homework. Several businesses offering hair removal should be consulted before making a final choice. And price should not be your only criterion.
In choosing a hair removal provider, you should get information on the following points:
– Are you a suitable candidate for the laser? Basic, but the laser does not work on blonde or white hair, despite claims to the contrary. Many medications (Rx & non) affect photosensitivity, precluding laser treatment.
– Equipment Used? – Is it actually a laser? (many advertised "lasers" are actually an IPL system, which is much less powerful, and some of these are ineffective)
– Is the type of laser suitable and safe for your skin type? This is especially important for darker skin types, and there is no such thing as a laser suitable for all people.
– Operator training? The field is unregulated, and it is a fact that some operate a medical laser after as little as one hour of training, or have simply read the owner's manual. The fact that the operator is a medical professional is in itself no assurance of adequate skill.
