Pros & Cons – Home vs. Professional Hair Removal
For many women and men getting rid of unwanted body hair is a recurring task that can become quite burdensome and annoying.
There are many different ways and methods that people use to get rid of their unwanted hair, and one of the popular choices these days is waxing. Waxing is a proven method for getting rid of hair in all different parts of the body, however, it is only a temporary fix and has to be repeated in order to remain hair free.
When it comes to waxing (or Body Sugaring, which is one of our specialties at Montgomery Electrolysis), there are a couple of options to consider.
DIY Or Go Pro?
The first decision to make is whether you want to perform the waxing yourself in the comfort of your own home (DIY = Do It Yourself), or have the waxing performed at a hair salon by a professional who is more knowledgeable about the process.
There are a few additional considerations to keep in mind when you are making the decision of waxing at home or visiting a salon.
- Cost for services
- Cost of equipment and supplies
- Expertise (or lack thereof)
There are a number of take home waxing kits that can be bought at a beauty store, beauty salon, hair salon or pharmacy for a reasonable amount of money. While this low cost is a pro for this option, the con is that you do not necessarily have any knowledge of the best way to complete the task.
One of the biggest “pros” of having your waxing / sugaring completed by a professional is that they know how to achieve the best results with the least amount of discomfort.
It is no surprise that waxing can be a little painful at times, and a professional will be able to make the experience as painless and effective as possible. This is something that you may not be able to control if you were to take on the task yourself in your own home.
The good news is you don’t have to “go it” alone.
