When clients wants to find the most effective way to remove hair, they would go for epilation rather than depilation. Why?
Depilation is a hair removal method that does not affect hair’s follicle. The most popular depilation methods are a razor and a depilation cream. They destroy only the upper part of the hair and only for a short period of time. Moreover, over time, the treatment has to be done more often, and the hair becomes thicker and thicker each time. We can say with 100% accuracy that depilation is definitely not an effective way to permanently remove hair.
Bio-epilation (sugaring and waxing) is often compared to depilation. We fundamentally disagree with this, since the effect is very different: over time, from procedure to procedure, the hairs become thinner, and the period between procedures increases.
In the process of another epilation methods, laser, photo- or electro- hair removal methods, the hair follicle is destroyed directly, which prevents its further growth. This is the main difference between epilation and depilation. This method can claim to be “the most effective hair removal treatment.”
Laser Hair Removal Treatment is a number one hair removal method on the market. It is not surprising, as this is the only method on the market that allows clients to remove body hair permanently.
During the procedure, a laser beam penetrates the skin, heats up each hair from the inside and destroys the hair follicle.
For those who dream of permanently removing hair and are looking for the most effective way, laser hair removal treatment is just the right one. Laser allows going through the hair to the hair follicle, destroys it and seals the hole from which the hair grows. The procedures must be carried out once every 3-6 weeks. The course of laser hair removal treatments is usually 8-12 sessions. After that, clients can forget about unwanted hair for a period of up to 3-4 years (provided that the technology of laser hair removal was followed carefully with each session).
Contraindications: People with a higher melanin content in their skin are not advised to proceed with laser hair removal, as this can lead to hyperpigmentation. It also does not threaten people with fair skin and blond hair, because there is no melanin for the laser. In addition, those receiving laser treatments will need to wear sunscreen for at least a month to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation. However, anyway it is advisable to always wear SPF to keep your skin young and healthy.
Pros: hair becomes smaller after the first procedure, the intervals between procedures increase, but clients cannot take long breaks between sessions.
Cons: If the procedure is performed unprofessionally or with an outdated laser, burns and even scars may remain.

Let’s carry on.
What seemed to our ancestors as torture, today has become a universal method of hair removal. As a result of the procedure, the hairs become thinner and softer, and the skin remains smooth for up to two to three weeks. Melted wax, which must be applied to the skin with a special spatula, is still widely used today. The technician should apply wax to the body, cover it with special paper, and then with a sharp movement tear off the paper in the opposite direction to the growth of the hair. The hairs remain on the paper / fabric.
Contraindications: The biggest risk is that wax may burn or stretch the skin. Waxing is not recommended for those taking isotretinoin. Retinol is also not recommended for those who have recently had bleaching and exfoliation, those who have used chemical depilatories, or those with sensitive skin.
Advantages of the method: a pleasant price.
Cons: excluding the fact that the procedure is quite painful, the effect of it is also quite temporary. After approximately 3 weeks, it has to be done again. The client is not allowed to use razor and has to wait for his next waxing/sugaring appointment to remove hair.
Which treatment to perform is absolutely up to you. There are advantages and disadvantages of both. Our personal choice is Laser Hair Removal as it gives a permanent effect. That is clearly the reason we have chosen it for having in our Beauty Clinic and in our Beauty Academy to teach new technicians to perform the method on their clients.
