Unwanted hair growth has been a big problem for women. Be it a teenager or a person in her 40s, every woman wants to have a clean and clear look without masculine features such as a beard or a mustache.
Not only women but men too are opting to remove unwanted hair from their body. Today, guys also realize that hair removal is not just meant for women.
However, while women face unwanted hair growth problems on their face, underarms and other parts, men usually look for hair removal from their back, shoulders and chest.
The hair removal procedures for both men and women can be same. There are many ways to get rid of unwanted hair such as waxing, shaving, hair removal creams, tweezers, electrolysis, laser hair removal technique, etc.
While waxing, threading, shaving creams, etc are temporary solutions of hair removal, electrolysis and laser hair removing techniques are claimed to provide permanent hair removal.
Some hair removal techniques work for a short term, some are helpful for long term removal and there are some which give permanent relief from the growth of unwanted hair.
It has been suggested that electrolysis is a clinically proven method of permanent hair removal. There are other treatments such as laser and flash lamp that have the same permanent impact.

For electrolysis one needs to go for several sessions for total treatment. Also you have to be very careful while choosing the right place and expert for the same. Choose a person who is experienced and has a history of providing good electrolysis treatments.
The person getting the hair removed through electrolysis may experience some pain during the treatment. If not done properly, electrolysis could leave dark spots in the treated areas.
On the other hand, laser (Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiance) hair removal is considered painless and also less time consuming.
This is so because in electrolysis each hair to be removed has to be treated one by one where as on laser treatment practitioners are able to treat large area of hair instead of going one by one.

Some refer to long term hair removal as permanent hair removal. So be sure to find the facts about the method and products that you are intend to use.
