When I began to have problems with hair growth on my chin and upper lip I decided to go with electrolysis. My first treatment with the electrolysis lasted 3 hours and cost a small fortune. I began going weekly for treatments (sometimes twice a week) and paid anywhere from $50 to $75 per treatment. After almost a year of this I still had major problems with hair on my chin and was shaving daily. Due to the cost I needed to find another option to help with my hair growth problems and decided on laser hair removal. I went to Renew Health and Wellness in Richmond to consult on my problem. What surprised me initially was the cost. I was under the impression that laser was way more costly than electrolysis, but it is actually quite affordable. I purchased the package deal, which gives me 1 treatment every 4-6 weeks for 7 treatments. After my first treatment I was amazed at the results. I no longer needed to shave every day. I barely needed to shave at all between treatments. With a few treatments completed I no longer even think about the hair I used to have on my chin and upper lip. When comparing the two treatments I found that laser was more affordable, better results, much less pain to no pain depending on the treatment area and much faster. I highly recommend laser hair removal and Renew Health & Wellness.

How it works:
The laser is an invisible beam of light and a constant source of heat that penetrates the hair follicle, disabling and then destroying it at its root while preserving the surrounding skin. The procedure of removing unwanted hair is simply targeting the follicle and then directing the laser beam at its root. The Laser Hair Reduction process begins as the laser beam finds the hair by first finding the melanin ( the dark color of the hair).
