Wax on - Wax off, Laser Strips Away the Competition

1st August 2012

Waxing has become a popular form of hair removal, but its ferocious and sometimes damaging techniques can cause harm to patients. Alas, there are other more professional forms of hair removal on the market. There’s no need to head down to the shops this weekend in search of an epilator, top notch razor, or wax kit. Just visit your nearest sk:n clinic and book in for an appointment with one of their friendly therapists. Laser hair removal is the best way to get rid of unwanted hair meaning you can say bye-bye to waxing, plucking and shaving.

Liz Jones columnist for the Daily Mail wrote that she estimated that she had spent around £157,000 on waxing throughout the course of her life and understands that it doesn’t even produce the best results. Not to mention that waxing can be quite unhygienic as therapists often ‘double dip’ the wax lollipop from one client to the next.

She said: “You can exfoliate all you like, but waxing weakens the hair shaft meaning when it re-grows it is more likely to grow crooked under the skin, resulting in unsightly ingrown hairs. But once you embark on the slippery slope that is waxing, you don’t know when to stop.

“Most women I know have a good two weeks…Followed by two weeks of famine, when we have to remain in lock-down, given we are frantically trying to grow enough hair to make the next session of costly waxing as effective as possible.”

sk:n have a solution for women and men who have unwanted hair. Laser hair removal initially costs more than a wax, an epilator or a top notch razor, but its long term benefits really set the treatment apart from the rest. Cutting down re-growth by up to 75% means as your treatment course moves forward, the need to shave, wax or pluck becomes less and less.
