When it comes to achieving a hair free body, there are a lot of different ways to go about it.
In this article we will look at the most common methods of hair removal.
By far the most common way of removing the hair from areas such as your legs, underarms, and bikini line, shaving is also one of the least expensive ways for everyday hair removal. One of the cons of shaving is that it is temporary and you have to repeat the action often to obtain a continuously hair free body.
Waxing Hair Removal
This is one of the longer-lasting options in terms of temporary hair removal. Since the hair is pulled out of the hair follicle completely it takes longer for it to grow back into place. However, waxing is still a temporary option and it will have to be repeated regularly.
This is not a viable option for large areas such as legs or underarms, but is more effective for small areas such as the eyebrows.
An epilator is a small electrical device that works similar to tweezing except an epilator has many tweezer heads that simultaneously grab several hairs and pull them out from the root. Results vary greatly with both effectiveness and the level of discomfort encountered.
Depilation Hair Removal
Depilatory creams contain chemicals which break down the bonds in keratin and weaken the hair so that it is easily scraped off the surface of the skin. While inexpensive, these creams have a strong, foul odor, can cause skin irritation, and are messy.
Sugaring Hair Removal
Sugaring is similar to waxing in the way that it is applied to the body. However, there are no strips used to remove the paste, rather it is flicked off using the hands in the direction of the hair follicles. It is a temporary hair removal option and is considered to be less painful than waxing.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser treatments use the light of a laser to penetrate the hair follicle and stop hair growth. It can be done in a permanent as well as semi-permanent way and is considered to be a pain free option.
Electrolysis Hair Removal
Electrolysis has been considered one of the only permanent options for hair removal. It is done by inserting a small needle into the hair follicles and has proven to be an effective permanent hair removal option.
