There seems an overwhelming number of different methods of hair removal. How do you make a choice? The one thing laser removal methods all have in common is that they stop hair from re-growing (to a greater or lesser extent), but which of these methods is the least painful?
Current laser hair removal machines fall (predominantly) into 2 camps, the traditional ‘shots’ based method and the newer ‘Alexandrite’ method.
Shots – Laser systems such as Magma, Candela and Cynosure use the now older-fashioned traditional shots method. During this treatment, laser energy is applied in one flash, to a small area. This laser flash raises the temperature in the follicle to somewhere around 45-50 degrees. After every flash the handset is moved a centimetre or 2 and the process repeated until the entire treatment area has been covered. This can be rather painful, with some systems being more painful than others! It is commonly likened to being flicked by an elastic band, with every laser flash! As the laser energy is delivered all at once, a cooling method is employed to prevent burns and make the treatment more bearable.
Alexandrite – At Reading Cosmetic Laser we DO NOT USE the shots method. We are very proud to use our fantastic MOTUS AY cosmetic laser. This state-of-the-art machine can truly offer painless laser hair removal in Reading.
