There is no woman who has not wanted, even just once, to end her hair forever. The dream is already a reality and, now, it can be realized at home, safely and without wasting time.

The drama is repeated and we suspect that there is no woman in the world who has never experienced it. We are talking about the beautiful skirt that you feel like wearing when the sun heats up, but the epilation is not done. Or when we receive an invitation to go to the beach, but the hair is already noticeable without being big enough to be removed. Or when we have a special weekend ahead of us, but the beautician can't see us — and no, we don't want to use the razor. If you see yourself in what you've just read, welcome to the club.

The truth is that, no matter how many fashions come and go, depilation is something that women resort to since time immemorial, knowing that, for example, a mixture of clay, sandalwood and honey was used to remove hair already in the Ancient Egypt. Over the centuries, methods and practices have evolved, of course, but always with the same goal: achieving smooth, hair-free skin for as long as possible.

We can divide the techniques available today to eliminate body hair basically into two types: temporary and permanent. In the former, we find removal using a blade, machine (cutting or hair removal), depilatory creams or wax; among the definitive techniques, we have the laser and the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), with numerous advantages in their use.

The disadvantages of temporary methods are numerous, as we have described above, but an important factor made them continue to be preferred by many people: the fact that they can be performed at home and at low cost. Unlike permanent hair removal techniques, which required resorting to beauty salons — with appointments not always compatible with real life. This was a problem that kept some people away from this option, which proved to be very expensive. But even that has already been resolved, thanks to the development of solutions for use at home, effective and safe, and which reduce costs. This is the case of the Snowyskin's IPL Handset, which combines IPL technology in a device that can be used wherever you want, very comfortably, quickly, with total safety and guarantee of excellent results, which in the medium/long term pays off greatly. the value of the equipment.

But is it really safe and effective? In the following text we will talk about the risks of permanent home hair removal. Keep reading and check it out!

How does laser hair removal work?

The hair removal method makes use of laser shots, that is, high-intensity light beams to eliminate hair.

The equipment shoots at the root of the hair, causing its cauterization, that is, it is burned and destroyed. With the frequency of the procedure, permanent damage will occur to the follicle, which will prevent/slow the growth of new hairs.

How does laser hair removal work at home?

It is possible to find portable devices with laser technology on the market. However, it must be made clear that these devices do not have the same power and efficiency as a professional device.

Therefore, laser hair removal at home is a most used resource for maintenance treatment. That is, after the client has already completed the monthly treatment with the number of sessions planned (between 5 and 10), the device can be used in the maintenance period, which varies in periods of six months or annually.

It is a practical solution for women, who do not need to travel to aesthetic clinics for treatment maintenance.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Pulsed light hair removal has gained more and more supporters, as it destroys the root through a beam of light without damaging the surrounding tissues. With regular use, the number of hairs dramatically decreases, allowing for a long-lasting epilation. Unlike laser — another so-called permanent hair removal method — pulsed light is less strong and, therefore, can be used safely in a domestic context.

Best Cost Benefit

Laser hair removal is a more expensive procedure than regular hair removal. However, compared to the other methods, there is no more reason for you to worry about the costs and inconveniences of recurring hair removal.

If you compare, for example, with wax expenses, imagine that you pay $50.00 for this and with an average interval of 20 days in a year, the expenses go to $900.00.

Considering that a person can startwaxing around the age of 15, by the time you are in your 50s you will have spent over $31,000.00.

Buy More Time

No more spending time passing the blade during your vacation and leisure moments. With all the rush of life, one less procedure can guarantee more free hours in your day to take care of yourself and other tasks.

In addition, you get rid of evils such as folliculitis, which are caused by the continuous use of blades.

So, in addition to saving you time, since the hair doesn't grow back, these types of aesthetic treatments guarantee you that freedom, you won't have to worry about problems.

Smooth and Soft Skin

With this procedure the skin is smooth and with an unparalleled softness. This is possible because, with the sessions, the laser light weakens the hair bulbs - the birthplace of the hair -, causing them to disappear, leaving the feeling of freedom that you so desire.

Another point is the elimination of ingrown hairs (or folliculitis), as I mentioned earlier. The process of shaving with blades, for example, causes a lot of friction on the skin and this causes the appearance of these uncomfortable red balls.

Another good news is that it is not necessary to spend a lot of time using it, and there is a guarantee of good results in short sessions.

Everything so that living without hair is definitely our reality and that special dress never has to be closed in the closet again. That's exactly what we want.
