Can You Let Your Hair Down?

The practice of hair removal is not of recent times and has been in vogue since several centuries. It is a known fact that ancient Egyptians also used it, especially the Priests. However, it has really caught on in the last 100 years.

There are several types of hair removal. The most common that is widely used by men and women alike is "shaving" which is a depilation technique. Depilation involves removal of hair on the surface of the skin. However, it is a temporary method and the hair grows back quickly. As a result, shaving needs to be done regularly. On the other hand, there are epilation techniques which remove hair below the surface of the skin. This is an effective technique and is far longer lasting compared to depilation techniques. An example is waxing. In fact, waxing in Los Angeles women has become a norm considering societal pressures and perceptions of beauty. Los Angeles spas offer a bouquet of services to make both men and women "feel" and "be" beautiful.

Some of the techniques offered by Spas require staff to be "trained" in specific fields of medical sciences to ensure that treatments for clients are properly supervised and administered. As a result, Spas and beauty clinics all over the world have transformed themselves into Medical Spas or Med Spas. These are also referred to as Day Spa Medical.

There are several of this kind in Los Angeles which is one of the most buzzing places in the world. Usually Spas are either day spas or destination spas. The classification is based on the duration of stay in Spas. If the establishment provides stay for several days for treatments, then it is referred to as Destination Spa. Conversely, if it is for a few hours stay, then they are day spas. Los Angeles is sprinkled with Spas of all kinds viz., day spas LA, Los Angeles medi spas, day spa Los Angeles and med spas. Most of these Spas fall under the ambit of being day spas as well as destination spas based on the requirement of the clients.

The Spas offer both epilation and depilation techniques of hair removal. Depilation techniques include shaving, depilatories and friction . Epilation methods span plucking, waxing, sugaring, threading, burning off hair with hot wax, usage of turmeric, epilators, prescribed oral medications and enzymes.

However, the above methods are temporary in nature and have to be administered regularly. Permanent solutions include electrolysis and laser hair removal. The latter has become very popular across the world since it is painless and less time consuming. It involves epilation or removal of hair from beneath the surface of the skin permanently. For this purpose, selective photothermolysis is applied to cause localized damage to dark target matter or melanin where there are hair follicles simultaneously ensuring that there is no harm to the rest of the skin. Brazilian bikini through laser hair removal as a result has become very popular though it primarily originated in the pornography industry.
