    Hair Removal, Permanently: Every woman’s dream?


    Each of us have approximately 5 million strands of hairs all over the body. Body hair is completely natural so there is no reason why you shouldn‘t wear your hair with pride. Nevertheless, the trend nowadays leans towards removing all those visible body hairs because smooth skin has its advantages such as improving hygiene and simply making you feel more comfortable.

    But smooth skin has its price. No matter whether you shave your armpits and bikini zone in the shower every morning, whether you epilate your legs every two to three weeks or whether you have your body hair removed with wax in the beauty salon: hair removal costs you a lot of time. As soon as you stop, the hairs grow back. And that takes the fun out of that spontaneous day at the beach.

    Hair removal that promises permanently smooth skin is therefore a sought-after solution. But can it really keep everything it promises?

    Pipe Dream or Reality? Is there a permanent hair removal method?


    For so-called permanent hair removal, you can use the salon laser hair removal method. The costs of this treatment are relatively high but it offers long lasting results.

    Laser sends light impulses to growing hairs. The melanin, which is responsible for the pigmentation in the hair, absorbs the light, which is converted into heat and directed towards the hair follicle. That encourages the hair to enter its resting phase. Between sessions, it sheds naturally and new growth is inhibited. Since only hairs in the growth stage can be treated this way, a number of sessions are required to reach a complete hair removal, depending on body part, hair density and hair type.

    In contrast to shaving or epilating you can significantly reduce hair growth over time with laser. You can expect at least six sessions, four weeks apart. However, a guarantee of completely permanent hair removal does not exist even with laser. It can still come to isolated regeneration of hair roots after some years, so that 1 to 3 other laser treatments are necessary. Generally, laser is less effective for fair hair with a low level of melanin.

    What is the alternative to hair removal in the salon?


    So, is there an alternative that does not require a salon visit but still achieves a similar long-lasting effect as laser? Lucky for us, there is – namely, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL).

    The main difference between laser and IPL is that hair removal with an IPL device can cover a larger area of skin. Instead of being dependent on a single wave length like laser, the complete light spectrum is used for IPL and filtered to the effective wavelength range.

    Although compared to shaving or waxing, both laser and IPL have a higher up-front costs, this investment pays off over time since you can achieve significantly longer-lasting results. If you decide on an IPL treatment, you can choose buy a home-use device which allows you to perform the treatments quite comfortably and flexibly whenever it suits you and yet have long lasting beautifully smooth legs.

    But an IPL device such as the Philips Lumea Prestige does not only make sense financially. It has been designed especially for you and your body and has three differently curved attachments for body, face and precision areas (bikini area and underarms). This way, each body part receives the attention it deserves.

    The Lumea Prestige is also handy, safe and achieves 92% hair reduction*. At the same time, you only need 8.5 minutes to treat both lower legs**. Honestly: would you have thought that a long-lasting hair removal could be this easy?

     

    *Adherence to the treatment plan; detected at the legs after the third treatment. Individual results may vary.
