Cleopatra likely plucked her unwanted hair with shells from the ocean. Clever lady! Hair removal meant many things in earlier times from cleanliness, wealth or status, to being free of a louse infestation (yeah, gross). Hair removal by means of plucking, shaving, and even waxing with melted sugar, have been around for centuries and like any other desired beautification tactic, it has been researched and researched some more.
About 50 years ago, the first laser designed to destroy hair follicles was invented. It was unsuccessful and painful. Over the course of the following half century lasers were really altered, tried, and altered some more. The process of laser hair removal became more successful however brought on other issues like damage to the skin and discoloration OR was not effective on certain skin and hair tones at all. Fortunately, science never gave up on our need for eliminating unwanted hair. Eventually technology gave us modern day LHR (laser hair removal) Electrolysis and IPL (intense pulsed light). All skin & hair types can be treated and because of better knowledge on how our hair grows and the cycles, permanent hair removal is achievable and virtually painless.
