SHAVER? A BIG NO!11 December 2020
Enjoy the perks of being hair-free and stress-free this holiday!
How about give our overused razors a rest? Most of us put our delicate skin through trauma on a daily basis and don’t even realize it. But before we talk about the harms, we cannot deny that shaving has many pros. It saves time, can be done by you, and is cheap and very simple. However, it leads to drying and itchiness of skin. Also, shaving is said to be more prone to the occurrence of in-grown hair and undergrowth.
OUR SKIN IS SENSITIVE
Shaving can irritate the skin, which may lead to itchy and painful red bumps. Itching after shaving may be a sign of razor burn or folliculitis.
Razor burn is a type of skin irritation that develops immediately after shaving. Improper shaving techniques can irritate the skin, causing patches of red, itchy bumps. Razor burn does not necessarily mean the skin is infected. It can happen when people dry shave, which is shaving without using creams or gels. Razor bumps also develop after shaving. However, these occur as the result of ingrown hairs.
Itching after shaving could also be a sign of folliculiti. This is a skin condition that results from a bacterial, fungal, or rarely, a viral infection of the hair follicle under the skin. It often results in red, acne-like spots and itchy, painful skin. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus often causes folliculitis. Some people are more prone to folliculitis than others. Shaving in the opposite direction to the way the hairs grow may increase a person’s risk of folliculitis.
How about a safe, painless, fast and effective permanent hair removal? Pink Parlour introduces you to Alpha Light Permanent Hair Removal!
WHAT IS PINK PARLOUR’S ALPHA LIGHT PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL?
Alpha Light technology delivers energy deeper into the follicles. Our machines are stable and fast, which explains why your treatment is very comfortable and quick. The light and heat delivery uses a ‘square’ technology where the pulses are always kept within safe and stable levels reducing the risk of burn and increasing comfort levels for clients which ensuring that every shot is effective yet almost painless. The cold treatment head rolls gently on the skin’s surface. This advanced deliverance is not only very comfortable but ensures damage to hair follicles effectively without harming superficial skin. There is a big contrast between Alpha Light and other older generation IPL which delivers unstable heat that feels like a heated rubber band flaking on the skin and has a higher risk of burn.
IS IT PERMANENT?
There is no technology in the market that is able to promise completely smooth and hair free results forever. This is because, at any point in time, every human being has a varied percentage of sleeping hair within our skin that cannot be treated during this sleeping phrase. These sleeping hairs can only be treated when they become active. These fine hairs can be treated in future touch up sessions once they become active and grow. However, due to the depth of Alpha Light Technology, we are able to capture more hair more effectively. On average, one to two touch up sessions a year for the 2nd and 3rd year can achieve over 98% hair free for many years. It will be unlikely that a person who has undergone the full course of Alpha Light treatment and achieving hairless-ness will experience a full re-growth again with an exception of hormonal therapy which may cause hair to become active.
CAN I SEE HAIR REDUCTION AFTER THE 1ST TRIAL?
You will notice hair falling off within 7 days to 3 weeks after the treatment, but hair reduction may not be noticeable as we all have many cycles of actively growing hair. An average person may require 3 to 5 session before noticing any hair reduction.
DO YOU GUARANTEE RESULTS? WHAT IF I AM NOT ABLE TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED RESULTS?
Pink Parlour prides ourselves in honesty and integrity when we conduct our business. Your results are our main obsession and we want to see your hair free as much as you want to be hair free. Pink Parlour can give assurance that you will see your hair being treated, meaning, hair fall will occur usually a week to 3 weeks after each session. If you feel in any way that your treatment has not been effective, simply drop us a note and we will ensure you will be looked after. There will always be a small number of people whom IPL Hair Removal technologies will never work, and we will not be able to guarantee that you do not fall into that category. With our extensive history of over 10 years doing IPL Hair Removal, we have seen less than 1% of clients who are NOT the SUITABLE candidate. Who will then not be candidates for IPL Hair Removal like Alpha Light?
People with very Active Hormones cannot be treated even though after every successful session of Alpha Light, the roots get destroyed and hair falls, but active hormones encourage regeneration of the follicles encouraging new hair growth. This is beyond what we can aid and we cannot be responsible for the inability to treat a person who has hormonal issues.
Some people who are undergoing menopause and being treated by HRT may not be suitable candidates as we cannot determine if the hormone therapy can encourage hair regrowth and promote active hair growth.
Very light hair colour we are unable to treat as it will not absorb the heat needed to destroy the roots. People with very dark skin are at a high risk of burn even though they will ultimately achieve hairless-ness.
