What are the disadvantages of using Electrolysis compared to laser hair removal?

The main reasons for selecting laser hair removal as opposed to Electrolysis is that:
1. Laser hair removal treats multiple hairs at a time whereas Electrolysis is a slow process treating individual single hairs at a time.

2. Potentially there is a higher risk of adverse side effects such as scarring or infection with Electrolysis.

3. The time taken to cover a given area will be longer with Electrolysis, however there is generally less treatments required to a given hair to become dormant.

4. Depending on the area to be treated and the method of Electrolysis employed, the laser hair removal is generally a lot more comfortable for the patient.
