There are so many methods for removing hairs on the market today: waxing, sugaring, hair removal creams, IPL (intense pulsed light), electrolysis and laser hair removal - all claiming to be the best solution. But which actually provides the longest lasting results and is worth parting with our hard-earned cash?

Waxing offers instantaneous results and lasts a bit longer than shaving - but only a couple of weeks or so. Hair removal creams also provide quick results and have the added benefit of soft hair regrowth, so you don’t get that prickly effect you do with shaving and you’ll notice fewer ingrown hairs.
IPL can offer long-lasting results, but uses a broad spectrum light and therefore is less precise than some other methods, so isn’t always suitable for hard-to-reach areas or darker skin tones.
Electrolysis uses heat energy to destroy the individual hair follicles permanently. A very fine heated probe is inserted into the root and then the hair is plucked out with tweezers. This too offers long-lasting results, but tends to be used on smaller areas of skin.
Laser hair removal: a long-lasting, versatile solution:
This form of hair removal can provide a permanent hair reduction of up to 90% after a course of approximately six to eight treatment sessions. There is no known solution that can provide absolute permanent hair removal, i.e., where all hairs are removed indefinitely. But laser hair removal comes pretty close and will permanently remove the hairs it successfully targets during treatment.
