Hair removal for the first time, as we say first job interview. Only, that the latter will happen much later, while the former will take place first!
Hair removal for the first time, as we say first date. The latter will also happen years later.
Familiarization with hair removal mainly concerns young girls. And soon enough it evolves into a women’s affair. It is the first time that you deal with the pursuit of beauty.
It is also the first time that you deal with pain. It is the introduction of young girls in the culture of female pain. Culture means habit, acceptance, and philosophy.
Pain is something that one becomes familiar with. When you have to do something that hurts, and not just for once, you finally accept it. It is a painful process (of course not as much as you imagine) with great results. You compromise with pain. For example, there is pain when you give birth, but through the pain a child is born. The result is awesome, so the pain is not an issue to be discussed. This pain is only known to women and that is why it is a woman’s affair.
When does a girl ask for hair removal for the first time?
Every girl is a different case. Many factors play a role with regard to when a young girl will ask to go for hair removal.
Every girl’s physical development is different. At 10 years of age, some girls look like 15. At 15 years of age, other girls look like 10.
The culture of the family & the environment where the girl is growing up is also important. If, for example, the mother and the women of the family always go for hair removal, it is usually considered to be necessary by the girls of the family too. And even from their younger years.
Heredity often determines the time when a girl will ask for hair removal. If there is strong hair growth from the girl’s early years, then she may even seek a solution before she reaches 10 years old.
When should hair removal be done for the first time?
The answer is, when the girl itself begins to worry about excessive hair growth. When the girl is ready to go for hair removal, then her mother must find the right professional beautician-cosmetologist, who will suggest the appropriate hair removal method for her.
What you should know about Hair & Hair Removal
Hair that appears on the body and face are common to all people indiscriminately, as well as to the entire skin surface except palms and soles of feet.ι τρίχες,
There is always hair, but it may not be visible, sometimes it is more visible, like lint, thick or less dense, in the form of longer hair or even thick mature hair. Hair that grows longer or remains short, or short and long hair may coexist.
Hormone-dependent hair is the hair on the face (except the eyebrows), shoulders, chest and abdomen.
This hair should be left untouched, because if we pull it it multiplies, becomes thicker and more persistent. These areas are dealt with with the so-called permanent hair removal methods.
Permanent hair removal methods
- Radical or electrical hair removal with a needle
This is the most traditional and effective method, which for decades has been exclusively used for permanent hair removal, until the appearance of LASER & IPL.
It is aimed at mature hair, preferably on the face. It can also be done on lint. It can also be done on the body.
- IPL hair removal
Permanent hair removal with pulsed light – IPL. It is wrongly referred to as LASER, but it is not. However, both LASER and IPL work on the hair with the same effect as photothermolysis (dark hair, absorbs light –wavelength from IPL or LASER and dissolves – burns the hair root).
Pulsed light is a very good hair removal method for hormone-dependent areas (e.g. face).
Alexandrite, known LASER hair removal method mainly for body, fast, effective, leaving velvety skin right after the session.
Diode, known LASER hair removal method for the summer months and very dark skins. It is suitable for our own Mediterranean country with a lot of intense sunshine. It is fast and effective , but it does not leave velvety skin right after the session.
However, the end result in permanent hair removal for either IPL, LASER diode or LASER Alexandrite is velvety smooth skin.
- Enzyme hair removal
Alternative permanent hair removal method with slower but good results. It targets lint and large surfaces. It leaves the skin free of hair, since in order to apply the enzyme, waxing must be done first.
Impermanent hair removal methods
It is the wax, the tweezers, the thread (avoid it because it causes bursitis), the razor (avoid it as close shaving causes bursitis), the halawa wax (method from the past), sponges and cloths that remove hair mechanically, depilatory creams or gels (they cause allergies & dermatitis).
Wax is the best impermanent hair removal method mainly for large surfaces. Modern cosmetology ensures excellent wax quality as well as optimal skin care with the use of these waxes. We are talking about professional waxes, the ones used by beauticians.
This is not a hair removal method. This is a hair camouflage method. It is the worst you can do for your hair and your skin. With discolouration, lint becomes blond and at first invisible. In the following times, we notice that it acquires volume and gradually the discolouration fails to produce a good result. As time goes by, hair becomes thick and not blond but red in colour. At this stage, because the hair is visible, the first visit to the beautician takes place. In order to find a definitive solution. In some cases, when applied to the upper lip, we also observe hyperpigmentation (sun blotch) on the upper lip.
Radical – electrical or LASER?
LASER is a a fast, modern and effective method that has “saved” a lot of people from hair growth. We all prefer it, both beauticians and our clients-visitors.
Radical – electrical will be applied on a small area, on white hair, where it does not recognize the light, on the hair left by LASER and a permanent solution is not feasible with any other method.. Where there is sensitivity to light, very close to lips or nipples, on tattoos, where hair had not been removed before.
What does the beautician-cosmetologist recommend for the first hair removal?
Each case and every person are unique and thus the problem has to be treated in a personalized way.
All hair removal methods exist to meet specific needs. The beautician-cosmetologist, properly trained at the Technological Educational Institute, may suggest the ideal hair removal method for the individual. You. The little princess, who decided she no longer wants her excessive hair.
