Electrolysis Vs. Laser Hair Removal

Both are solutions to removing body hair from many areas and offer significantly longer-lasting results than your average shave, wax, or pluck. They target hair follicles below the skin, destroying them with time to prevent future growth.

The difference between them is the amount of manual effort that goes into the treatment and the size of the area to address.

Laser Hair Removal

A non-invasive procedure that is used for the permanent reduction and even removal of unwanted hair is known as laser treatment. Advancements have made it possible to penetrate the skin deeply and accurately. The FDA approves laser hair removal as a “permanent” option, meaning it provides a stable solution over time.

The ideal candidate has darker hair because the laser hair removal device targets the molecule color. It works well for most areas of the body, including your face, bikini zone, and armpits.

The laser hair removal procedure involves:

  1. A cooling or numbing cream application
  2. Focusing a highly concentrated laser beam on the area of concern
  3. The laser generates heat to destroy hair follicles at the root
  4. Cleansing the treatment area and applying sunscreen

Some newer laser devices are equipped with cooling technology to offset the heat of the laser for an even more comfortable session. Plus, their advancements have made it possible to see results within less time.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Unlike some other methods of hair removal, patients enjoy smoother and softer skin with laser treatment. Larger areas are treatable in one session, with less pain or discomfort than waxing.

You can immediately resume your regular routine as there is no downtime with laser treatments. As a permanent hair removal procedure, it is approved by the FDA. Safe and effective with minimal discomfort, most patients only feel a mild sting, making each appointment very tolerable. Some compare it to the feeling of a rubber band snapping on their skin. As you can see from the before and after images of real patients, this can truly be a life-changing option.

Electrolysis Hair Removal

For some patients, laser hair removal might not be an option. Whether your skin tone is challenging for the laser to target or you have a hormonal imbalance that causes hair growth, laser might not be as effective.

With electrolysis, a thin needle or wire probe delivers low-level electric pulses into each follicle to keep it from growing. It pinpoints follicles one at a time with the right intensity setting to heat and eliminate without damaging the surrounding skin. This is a great solution for small areas and for hair that does not have enough pigment for laser treatment.

Benefits of Electrolysis

Electrolysis is a popular solution because it can address all hair colors and skin types. With that being said, it is a more manual process. Our patients typically choose Electrolysis for smaller treatment areas. It provides a more permanent solution than laser hair removal, since it pokes each individual follicle, but requires more sessions. It’s common to schedule around 14 appointments with maintenance sessions every so often once treatment is complete.

“I like the freedom of not having to go every few weeks to have my upper lip and chin waxed.”

If you’re not sure which option is best, our trained and experienced professionals are happy to help you establish a treatment plan for your specific concerns.

*Please keep in mind that results vary from person to person. Your individual results will depend on your initial concerns, unique plan, and treatment intensity.

Hair Removal Treatments FAQ

How Painful is Electrolysis Hair Removal?

Electrolysis is generally a bit more painful than laser hair removal, with a slight sting for each probe. If you’re concerned about pain levels, we are happy to discuss numbing cream solutions to help, particularly if you are targeting a sensitive area.

Is One Session of Laser Hair Removal Worth It?

One session will offer you results, typically around 10% to 25% hair reduction. A series of treatments are necessary to address the various hair growth cycles effectively.

Since we use the latest laser equipment, most patients see the best results within four to six laser treatments, as compared to 10 sessions with more dated equipment.

Each appointment leaves a few weeks between for your body to adjust. It’s also common for those with particularly stubborn hair growth to receive maintenance treatments once every six to twelve months. Your individual circumstances will be used to determine the number of sessions you will require.

Can Laser Fix Strawberry Legs?

Laser hair removal is one of the most powerful techniques to combat strawberry legs. Of course, this also applies to anywhere on your body that has dark pigmentation in the hair. This is because of how well the laser finds dark hair pigment within the follicle, as opposed to lighter-colored hair.

Are There Side Effects With Hair Removal Treatment Options?

The treatment site may exhibit some redness, irritation, and sensitivity following the procedure, these disappear quickly.

Both laser hair removal and Electrolysis come with the risk of burning hte skin around the hair follicle or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

These can happen if your provider administers treatment improperly for your skin, which is why it’s crucial to find skilled professionals you can trust.
