Going into the warmer weather, you may start thinking about hair removal again. Have you ever wondered which method of hair removal is best for you though? Read on as we share some insights on Waxing vs. IPL to help make your decision.
Waxing is a temporary method of hair removal that can be performed on any area of the body. Warm wax is applied to the area being waxed. The hair is removed from the hair follicle when pulled off the skin leaving the skin feeling smooth and hair free. For the best results, the hair length has to be at least 1 cm. If you wax hair less than 1 cm in length you will end up with in-grown hairs and you won’t end up getting all the hairs out. Your skin should also be well hydrated… Be sure to moisturise!! This will ensure that you have the best results. In terms of cost, a waxing session will, at most, cost $80 but you will have to wax at least monthly if you intend to keep unsightly hair away.
IPL this is a permanent hair reduction method. Once you are done with 6-8 sessions, you’ll notice a definite reduction in hair. But before you get too excited, these sessions are a gradual processes in that about on average, 40-50% of body hair is removed per session. Before your first appointment it’s best not to wax or pluck your hairs for 6 weeks. This can be tricky especially if your hairs are dark! However, once over that hill, you’ll never have to wax again! Hurray! Another fact you’ll love about laser treatment is that it is less painful than waxing. Yes, you read right. And what’s more it is much faster than waxing. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, it can take just 15-30 minutes! It is a more upfront cost but overall will be cheaper in the long run.
