Hair Removal Techniques
Shaving is recommended for facial hair (men), arms and legs. However, it can cause ingrown hairs, in particular in the pubic region.
Tweezing or plucking might be painful, but also a good solution when you need to remove just a few hairs. For example, it’s recommended when reshaping eyebrows and pulling out several stray facial hairs. If, however, you have the large area of unwanted hair, plucking is not recommended, because it causes scarring and ingrown hairs.
Depilatory creams are used for hair removal and you don’t need prescription to buy them. It’s important to read their label, since they are not all the same. If it’s designed for facial hair, don’t use it to remove your pubic hairs. The chemical ingredients in depilatory creams dissolve the hair shaft. If you use a cream improperly, it might burn your skin. Always, follow the directions in order to get the best results.
Hot Waxing can be done at home or in a professional salon. This technique might be painful and messy and some hairs might break off and therefore they can be left behind. It’s the most common way to remove upper lip hair or bikini area. Nowadays, Brazilian waxing is very popular.
Laser Hair Removal requires more than one treatment, but it’s definitely the longest-lasting treatment. A light pulse or the laser beam works to destroy the bulb of the hair. This is quite expensive and possibly painful treatment, but useful in removing unwanted hair from many body parts. It should be done by the highly trained professional.
