How to Build Confidence & Flaunt Your New Hairless Body!
But first, let’s talk about two subjects I am quite passionate about.
I used to be really scared whilst touching my eyebrows, with a tweezer. After a little bit of professional help (I used to do eyebrow waxing, then moved to more precise and nicely shaped eyebrows with eyebrow threading), I realized there wasn’t much to it actually. This made me try it boldly, once at the comfort of my home. I googled the best tools and found myself a great threading tool that helped me gain the confidence. After making regular self-operated facial threading sessions I said to myself, “Nothing is scary in this world. There is nothing that you can’t do!”

This is probably the first thing that might demoralize you from going on. I know because it happened to me. Ingrown hair might show up sometimes, but remember that is not the end of the world.
When I encountered it myself for the first time I was lucky to have someone around to teach me about it. Getting an advice from a friend came as a blessing in disguise as I was told about the innate condition that entailed hair going inside hair follicles and causing so much inconvenience. A gamut of ingrown hair removal techniques is available with the help of which you will flaunt your smooth skin with confidence and worry about ingrown hairs no more, just like me!

Top Intriguing Facts About Laser & IPL Hair Removal
I would like to introduce you to some intriguing facts about laser hair removal:
- Consistent use of laser for hair removal is believed to yield outstanding results. The reduction of hair in most cases is as high as 99%.
- The method is so much effective in practice that dermatology industry has accepted and incorporated its usage all across the globe.
- Laser hair removal works great for both men and women equally.
- As far as safety and efficacy factors are concerned, laser removal simply aces it.
Hair pigmentation is as a result of melanin which explains the variegation. It is the terminal coarse hair that we need to worry about. There are certain laser removal products that wipe off the hair right from the follicles, degrading the growth to a great extent. For permanent hair reduction you need to follow a treatment regime that ensures your hair don’t grow back in the long run.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work
Exposure to pulses of laser light annihilates the hair follicle. This forces the re-growth to take a toll. The process has been an ongoing one for the past 20 years and has been really successful. If you are using a laser based product for full body hair removal then be assured that you are going to end up with a fully fledged hairless version of you. Make sure you use a numbing cream and goggles, as a precautionary step whilst carrying out the treatment. A calming cream is advisable to be used after a treatment.
What parts is it good for?
You can use it for every body part. Period!
Some home laser and ipl permanent hair removal machines have been designed with such intention so as to allow you to use it all over your body, others either focus on the face only and others on the body only. This is generally very clearly noticeable but if you are looking at doing this at home, give me a shout and I can help you out.
There are face hair removal which includes ear hair removal products and laser home devices which are pretty great for back hair removal and chest hair removal that give you a unique hair removal experience.
Does it Work for Everybody?
Laser products are directly dependent upon the skin you have. It also depends on the color of your hair. Hence, there are products that clearly specify for which kind of hair color and skin the concerned device has been manufactured for. There are skin sensors in most devices that help you to figure out if parts of your bodies are treatable or not. These sensors take the skin color into account and with a beep like noise they let you know if you could go ahead with your session or not. However, we recommend you read the instructions carefully before giving a device the green signal.
If you are planning to give it a shot, we recommend you start the treatment right from the comfort of your home. I have handpicked some of the best devices that had worked wonders for me, and literally helped me to change my life. These have been placed here:
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
It actually depends person to person. To be really candid, I would say you only get a bit of pain. For some it isn’t at all painful. For some underarm hair removal might be itsy bitsy painful. However, if you are using a good numbing cream as expanded on below, it will take care of it even the least bit of pain by easing it to a great extent.
Have a painless experience!
I hear people often hesitating with the likes of laser and IPL hair removal as a permanent hair removal solution. What really stops them from getting on the bandwagon of permanent hair removal is the ‘notion’ of ‘excruciating pain’. Let me tell you first hand, it’s not ‘excruciating’ how some peopl e make out.
The bottom line is, I can’t tell you that it’s painful or not. It is for some people and other people don’t feel a thing.
What I can tell you is that you will feel something and that is a good sign, we want to feel a bit of a sting or a pinch because then we know that the laser beam is doing it’s job.
Want to help yourself just in case?
Numbing creams are used as a precautionary measure for almost 90% of customers worldwide.
Standard purchase, laser machine + numbing cream + calming cream. Period.
You never know how your body reacts when you are slaying the hair demon. Your whole life is dependent on your looks. You can’t take no for an answer. To help you stand stern during tough times, come brilliant numbing creams that assist you to get over your torture quite quickly. Use it whenever you are having a hair removal session at your home and ensure that you don’t visit the pits of hell. Numbing creams are also very effective against skin irritation and ongoing tattoo pain. It abates the physical agony to a great extent.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
Everything boils down to one question – cost.
It’s on all of our minds.
What is the laser hair removal cost?
It is the first thing I cared about as well. Because I didn’t want to indulge in something that ends up making me wipe out my savings.
Option 1 – This method may just make you go bankrupt – just saying.
If you are looking for professional treatment in a salon or by an aesthetician, let me give it to you straight it is going to be costly, very costly. Even smaller regions like bikini area, could cost you upwards of $100 (to get it done properly).
Here is an example of how costly professional laser/ipl can be.
Just imagine how costly it would get if you were planning to remove hair from your entire body. Also, one treatment isn’t going to give you permanent hair reduction results. So, that would require you to make regular visits to the clinic for getting treated. A perfect way to get bankrupt isn’t it?
Option 2 – It is a good thing we have a better cost effective alternative with us. Simply buy a good laser hair removal device at home that has been discussed before and get started. It will cost you around 150$ to 450$. However, just bear this in mind. It is a one-time investment that guarantees exceptional results. You don’t need to pay a visit to the laser clinic again. Become a pro yourself at home and get the job done without having to sell your house.
At most you will be spending around $40-$500 (that’s for the #1 machine) v the thousands as shown above.
