Regardless of where you want to remove unwanted hair, it’s a desire that often begins in adolescence and never seems to end. There are several ways you can get rid of unwanted hair, even though few of them will actually leave you with permanent results. Here are five of the most popular, non-invasive ways to remove hair.
Shaving is most people’s first introduction to hair removal. Unfortunately, it also happens to be the most temporary method. Rather than getting rid of the hair from the root, shaving cuts the hair of the skin’s surface, leaving the hair follicles beneath the skin. While shaving doesn’t cause your hair to grow back thicker, darker or faster, the hairs look more noticeable because of the blunt tip of the hair, instead of the tapered tip, it had before it was shaved down. The most effective, smooth shave happens when the skin is moisturized with the use of shaving cream, body wash or hair conditioner.
Using tweezers to remove any unwanted hair is highly effective, as you’re removing the hair by its root, but it’s also extremely time-consuming. You’ll be sitting around for a while if you choose to pluck your leg or arm hair. Rather, plucking is best used for cleaning up your eyebrows and sprawling facial hairs.
Waxing is a highly effective way to remove large areas of hair in one go. Whether you choose to use hot wax, waxing strips or sugar wax, the product is applied over the skin in the direction of hair growth before being ripped off in the opposite direction. When dealing with hot wax, you need to be careful not to burn yourself. You should also be aware that waxing can be painful depending on your pain tolerance and cause red bumps, discoloration, infection, torn skin, and ingrown hairs.
Using thioglycollate mixed with sodium hydroxide or calcium hydroxide, depilatory creams work to melt your unwanted hair away while leaving your skin intact. After applying a thick layer of the cream onto the desired area for however long is necessary, you wipe or wash the cream off, taking your dissolved hair with it. Depilatory creams can irritate your skin, both from the chemicals used as well as the abrasiveness of the product. It’s important that you test a small area for possible reactions before applying it to larger areas.
Laser Hair Removal
The lasers used during laser hair removal treatment emit lights at different pulse widths, wavelengths and energy outputs. This technology targets and burns away structures that contain melanin, also referred to as pigment, effectively getting rid of darker hair. Laser hair removal targets hairs that are in the growth phase, and as each hair strand reaches this stage at a different time, multiple sessions are necessary to complete long term hair removal.
