What about facial hair removal?
Nature has endowed us with different things, but, unfortunately, we don’t like all of them, and some cause inconvenience. This applies in particular to the hair that grows on the face. If at the dawn of mankind, wool performed important protective functions, then today the remnants of evolutionary processes in the form of facial hair cause problems and experiences.
In the modern world, it is customary to get rid of them. But if for men shaving has long been a natural daily process (except for those who deliberately leave a mustache, beard and stubble), then for women even one extra hair on their face can be a tragedy.
Facial hair removal — features
The human face, oddly enough, has a rather delicate and sensitive skin. Although, from the point of view of evolution, it should be strongly protected — there is too much important under it. Hair is designed to create an additional protective barrier. But, at the current stage, vellus, almost invisible thin hairs grow on the face. Plus, the hormonal structure of the body left in men a fairly strong hair growth on the cheeks, lips, chin, and temples. And women are practically all deprived of this. But even men shave off this hair, let alone those women who, for various reasons, have such a problem. However, shaving is not a good choice in this case. When removing hair with a razor, the hair root remains under the skin, is not damaged in any way, receives a lot of nutrients and grows well further. Each time it gets stronger and stronger, and the hair begins to grow thicker, harder and darker. In addition, the razor
damages the epidermis, which negatively affects at least the appearance, and at the most can cause diseases.
PRINCIPLE OF PHOTOEPILATION:
The method is based on the effect of light energy on melanin — a special coloring pigment that is found not only in hair, but also in hair follicles. During the procedure, melanin interacts with a powerful light pulse, converting it into heat energy, which ultimately destroys the hair follicle. And a few days after the procedure, the hair simply falls out — painlessly and forever! Photoepilation of the face is the effect of a powerful light flux on the follicle. Within 1 session, about one third of the hair is eliminated.
Important: Light exposure during photoepilation additionally rejuvenates the skin, making it smoother and more elastic, while activating all metabolic processes at the cellular level!
