Permanent hair removal using laser technology for those who need to get rid of unwanted hair for good and be rid of shaving and traditional waxing is available and gaining in popularity. For women, parts of the body such as on the face, underarms and legs can be treated using the lazer surgery whereas for the men it is often on the back and shoulders as well as the chest and some men even the legs. Many South African cyclists for example are so dedicated that they have the hairs on their legs permanently removed to avoid the hassles of shaving and waxing.
Having unwanted hair removed permanently with the latest in laser technology is a reasonably painless process for most people although a tingling sensation is felt by most patients. There are generally no serious side effects apart from temporary rashes on very sensitive skins or reddish pink areas of skin that disappear within a short space of time. Many clinics offering lazer treatment are spread around South Africa and consultations need to be made initially for quotes and an idea on the costs involved.
The price of treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated and in some cases the thicness of the hair that needs to be removed. Following a consultation at one of the many clinics a potential patient will receive a full quotation in order to be clear on the costs of this modern surgery treatment. In most cases several sessions are required over a few weeks in order to treat and complete the process of permanent hair removal using the latest in laser technology.
