Epilation means the removal of hairs from the root of the hair. The epilating hair remover devices include tweezers, electrolysis, waxes, and laser hair removal.
These devices can be made of insulation materials like nylon, plastic and other nonconductive materials. Recently specialized devices are developed for specific areas like face, underarms and bikini area.
The hair remover device market is huge. The intense pulsed light treatment and laser treatments are more popular. Even though the cost of these treatments are much high we can sleep without any doubt of unwanted hair growth in future.
3-6 continuous treatments are required to get the complete result. The home based treatments are also available in the market.
Laser hair remover devices better for the permanent hair loss. This device pulse a gentle beam of light on to the skin. These lights affected the hair follicles and which leads to disable the future growth of hair.
Laser hair remover devices are available in the range of 694 nm ruby lasers, 755nm alexandrite lasers, 800nm diode lasers and 1064 nm ND: YAG lasers.
The hair on our body contains pigment named melanin. The laser hair removal highly depends on the absorption of laser light by this melanin. Likewise laser does not work on hair which has no color.
So it is important that all lasers are not same and please consider the features of hair and skin. 1064 nm ND: YAG lasers are suitable to dark hair with dark skin.
Electrolysis is another useful method of permanent hair removal. A needle, which is the main device in this method, is used to pass electrical current through the hair follicle.
These electrical current causes a chemical reaction in to the hair follicle such as the water and salt turns sodium hydroxide. This chemical dissolves the follicle and then destruction of hair growth.
Recently new electrolysis hair remover devices are developed and they are performed with galvanic tweezers instead of regular electrolysis needle.
Highly conductive silver chloride gels are used to help the hair follicle to conduct the electricity. It allows electrical current to go non conductive portion of the hair. Some of them are powered with AC instead of batteries.
The Radio frequency hair remover devices are recently used to remove the hair permanently. In this method a Radio Frequency energy which causes a heating effect, is transformed with the help of electronic tweezers.
This heat causes to dehydrate the hair follicle and papilla. Normally using frequency of these devices is 27.12MHz and power output is 1.5 Watts.
Waxing is a physical hair remover method and better way to removing large amount of hair at a time. In this method wax is spread over the skin in the direction of hair growth.
While the wax is pulled off in the opposite direction of the hair growth, pulling the hair out of the hair follicle. Sugar waxing is also popular and which works like ordinary waxing but using thick sugary substances.
It can be concluded that study well about the products before selecting one.
