Still can’t decide between these two of the most popular hair removal methods? Here is an overview of Ultra Hair Away compares to laser hair removal to help you decide which method is best for you.
How they work
Ultra Hair Away is a liquid which gets sprayed onto areas of unwanted hair. The solution gets absorbed into your hair follicles where it starts to act on the papilla (root) of the hair. The Ultra Hair Away essentially irritates and blocks the papilla so it can’t produce new hair cells. Eventually, the papilla separates from its blood vessel and will never be able to grow again. That means you will have permanent hair removal with Ultra Hair Away.
Laser hair removal uses a special type of light laser. Unlike the light beams we are accustomed to, a laser has light which is comprised of just one color and only goes in one precise direction. The light gets beamed onto the follicles of unwanted hair. It then creates an intense heat which destroys the hair follicle. The hair follicle will eventually grow back but it will likely take a while and the hair will be lighter and thinner when it does return.
The Convenience Factor
As much as you hate your unwanted hair, you probably don’t want to spend the rest of your life battling it. With Ultra Hair Away, you can get rid of hair in just a few easy steps. First, you must wax your hair (or any other method which gets the hair out at the root, like tweezing). Then, you spray the Ultra Hair Away solution on the area and rub it into your skin at the hair follicle. When your hair grows back (it will grow back thinner and slower), then repeat the process. After about 4-6 weeks, your hair will stop growing back completely.
Laser hair removal is relatively painless and doesn’t require much effort from you. However, it is not pleasant getting hair removed with a laser. For larger areas of hair, you will likely need to return several times for the treatment. As hair grows back, you will also have to return for follow-up treatments.
The more hair you have to remove, the more expensive either treatment becomes. For removing unwanted lip hair with Ultra Hair Away, you can expect to pay about $50 for the complete treatment. On the other hand, laser hair removal would cost you $2400 for six treatments over the course of a year, plus another $200-400 for each following year. Not only is Ultra Hair Away the better deal and more convenient choice up front, it is also better in the long run because only it will give you permanent hair removal.
