Photodepilation has been part of our lives for years, both for men and women. We all look for the same, a final solution to remove hair from unwanted areas (which are increasingly more). Now, the words laser hair removal and photoepilation are no longer so strange to us, but do we really know what they are? In this article we explain it to you.
Permanent hair removal
The first thing you should know is that we talk about guaranteed and painless results. Laser hair removal is the best known and is usually offered by most hair removal centers.

Undoubtedly, what many call, the definitive hair removal.
Your technique? Based on light
Both laser hair removal and photoepilation work in the same way. They transform light into heat and, when applied to hair, destroy its root. The improvement offered by the second one is the thermal action that first weakens the hair and then destroys the root so that the hair does not grow back.
To perform this hair removal technique, light is applied through a xenon lamp. We warn you that you will have to do at least one session every two or four months to see the results and that you will need several to get it. Of course, as in laser hair removal, the sessions will depend on how you have the hair.

Consequences of depilation
The benefits of photoepilation are greater than the drawbacks. Still, we have to make you participate in them. There are only two, we warn you.
The first one is the price of the photoepilation. In comparison with other hair removal techniques, the cost is quite high. Of course, the centers usually worry about doing promotions, flat rates, special promotions or packs per sessions so that the treatment does not cost you so expensive. We advise you to think about how much you spend each year on hair removal, take out accounts and see how, comparing, you do not get so expensive and you can forget about hair forever.
The second of the drawbacks is that it can not be used in pregnant women. In fact, it is totally forbidden in the most intimate areas as the English because the pulsed light could cross the skin to reach the fetus. If, you want to perform hair removal on arms face or bottom of legs you will have to ask the doctor directly to find out what is most appropriate. Still, our advice is to avoid it until after delivery and breastfeeding. They are the only consequences of photoepilation .
Can this technique be used by everyone?
Yes, the answer is yes ( except pregnant women for the reasons we gave you earlier). Pulsed light has a wavelength that allows it to be applied to all hairs and skins, unlike the continuous light that was used until now. By the way, it is a perfect solution also for those who want to eliminate the first white hairs that appear with age, yes, gray hair.
Photoepilation for men
First of all we must differentiate the man hair from the man to the woman. Male hair is usually a little thicker and heavier in specific body areas such as the abdomen, the back or the chest. Even so, the photo-depilation for men has proved to be very effective and, therefore, more and more decide to carry it out and use it to forget the happy shaver forever.
Having said that, if you are a man, we advise you to go to your nearest center to have a hair study to determine how many sessions can be eliminated and, above all and most importantly , if they can definitely eliminate it. In principle the answer must be yes, but just in case, ask before! As in women’s hair removal, the professional will consider the sensitivity of your skin, the thickness and abundance of hair the area you want to shave and the type of skin you have before doing any hair removal with the laser .
And, by the way, the hormonal treatments of women could interfere with laser hair removal. Now, with photoepilation it seems that they stop acting in that way and finally manages to eliminate them all.
How to prepare for photoepilation
Yes, we’re sorry to tell you but you should go to shave with a little bit of hair. We have not gone crazy, the reason is very simple. The stronger and blacker the hairs are, the more effect hair removal will have. Therefore, try not to shave at least a month before and, if you had an essential act for which you should be shaved, always do with blade to not eliminate the hairs by the roots. Also, do not wear self-tanners and do not even think about sunbathing or giving yourself rays sessions. How photodepilation works? Its operation aims to eliminate melanin pigments and, if you have sunbathed before, chances are you can get white spots, irritations or burns. Do not take the risk, believe us.
Between session and session forget about sunbathing directly or, if it is necessary to be in the sun, cover up with something the area that you are shaving. During the photoepilation process you will have very sensitive skin and you may get burned if you expose yourself to the sun for a few minutes. We recommend, in addition, that you put aloe vera to calm your skin a little and, above all, if you happen to wax between the sessions. It is totally forbidden!
By the way, do not ever think about getting cream before going to a session, you could make the laser not penetrate your skin properly and you will lose money. Anyway, all these tips will be given by your professional person when you are going to start the photoepilation process.
