How does - Laser Hair Removal  in Indiacompare with electrolysis?

Electrolysis can be a tedious, painful process destroying each hair follicle one at a time. This can sometimes require treatment over years at regular intervals.

Laser hair removal on the other hand can treat hundreds of hair follicles simultaneously so the process is much quicker.

Is laser hair removal for anyone?

Coolglide Technology

With CoolGlide's unique design, there is now the flexibility to treat all skin types with laser hair removal. Before CoolGlide, tanned patients and persons with darker skin could not expect good results from laser hair removal treatment.

A CoolGlide device has a longer wavelength which allows it to treat all skin tones. While patients with fair skin still respond the best, medical studies indicated that patients with tanned or dark skin can now achieve hair reduction equal to fair skinned patients without undesirable side effects.

Other Laser Hair Removal Devices

With some laser hair removal equipment, an absolute requirement is that the hair must be darker than the surrounding skin.

White skin with dark hair responds best. Persons with dark, coarse hair are the easiest to treat as dark hair contains melanin, a dark pigment which attracts the laser light so more laser energy is absorbed. Fewer sessions are needed.

Light colored hair is more difficult to treat and blonde and red hair are very difficult to treat requiring multiple laser hair removal sessions with varied results.

Anyone on a diet high in beta-carotene will need to change eating habits if they want best results from laser hair removal. Beta-carotene, found in vitamin A, carrots, squash and other vegetables produces a yellow or orange color in the skin which absorbs the laser energy and interferes with it reaching the hair follicle.

As beta-carotene can remain in the body for months, an adjustment in diet may be needed well in advance of laser hair removal treatment for optimum results.

Persons with light skin are the easiest to treat, requiring less laser hair removal sessions as the results are faster.

Persons with dark skin or sun tanned skin take longer to get results because melanin, the dark pigment in hair, is also present in skin. Melanin absorbs some of the laser light.

There is the danger of dark skin being burned in these instances so a laser beam with a lower energy level is used. For this reason also a higher level of expertise is required on the part of the laser hair removal clinic.

I got my first laser hair treatments in 2000 when I first moved to Minneapolis. I’d seen billboards around Uptown, and finally worked up the nerve to call a clinic in a nearby suburb. The treatments were incredibly expensive and quite painful back then. I paid $150 per treatment to get my chin and areolas done, and was left red and raw afterwards. But my regrowth lessened, some hairs vanished altogether, and the ones that grew back in weren’t as thick or noticeable. $150 a pop is a lot for a 25-year-old to sustain, so I probably did three or four rounds of treatment before giving it up.

I am fair skinned and have lots of dark hair and it has been amazing. I have had my armpits, facial hair, lower legs and forearms done so far. It can sting in certain areas but only for a milisecond. There was a little redness on my upper lip for about 15 minutes after each treatment otherwise no evidence I have had anything done (apart from no hair regrowth :-) ) Have a look to the article to know how does laser hair removal really work  http://renovalaser.com/does-laser-hair-removal-work/

lol just saw my post from 2 years ago on this thread

 i have been doing electrolysis and in only 7 hours of treatment i already got rid of a lot of hair.

laser removal is temporary....electrolysis is the only way to completely get rid of hair.
plus, laser is not recommended for dark skin people.

laser is not permanent and you'll waste your money
plus it IS painful.

electrolysis can be painful too, but a numbing cream will help you. the most sensitive areas are upper lip and the middle of the body - for example, the middle of your belly.

I posted a link and pics of a girl who had an awful facial hair problem and she no longer suffers
