If you are trying to get rid of body hair, whether it’s a few stray hairs or many, you have many options open to you. Choosing between hair removal procedures will be easier when you understand the basics about each of them, as well as what your own needs are.
The Simplest Hair Removal Methods to Try at Home
If you are set on removing your unwanted hair at home then there are several simple methods you can try, some of which you probably already have tried. Shaving is the most obvious, but it doesn’t remove hair down to the roots. That’s why you have to shave so often to keep up with the regrowth.
Other simple at-home hair removal treatments include waxing, sugaring, and depilatory creams. Waxing and sugaring both rip hair out, often by the roots. However, waxing is especially inconsistent in its results. Sugaring tends to remove the hair for a longer period of time. As for depilatory cream, it can be quite useful, but only when applied consistently on a regular basis, and it may take quite a while before you see any major change.
Clinical Methods of Removing Stubborn Unwanted Hairs
Aside from at-home hair removal methods, there are also several ways to get rid of unwanted hair in a clinic. One of the most popular hair loss tools is a laser. Lasers are precision tools that focus beams of light and heat on specific spots on the skin’s surface. Laser machines are so accurate that they can target each individual hair. They are also versatile enough to be used on multiple body parts. Some lasers are better for treating a few hairs. Others can be used to treat larger areas.
Electrolysis is another clinical procedure for hair loss that you can try. However, it is limited in its uses. Generally it is used for spot treatments of single stubborn hairs on the face or neck. However, electrolysis can sometimes be used to treat several hairs in one area as well.
It should be noted that numbing creams are used by clinical technicians before either of those hair removal procedures are performed. But there may still be some discomfort involved. Electrolysis is particularly known for being uncomfortable, but it is quite effective at getting rid of hair for a long period of time, which is why it is popular for getting rid of unwanted facial hairs in particular.
Selecting the Right Hair Removal Option
There is no such thing as selecting a right or wrong hair removal option. The only major difference between them is how long it takes the hair to grow back after the procedure. So, when choosing between hair removal procedures or at-home treatment methods the biggest question to ask is whether you prefer easy, quick methods you may have to repeat a lot or more invasive methods with results that will last for a longer period of time.
If you choose clinical hair removal methods you should first investigate local clinics. Find one that you trust and then sit down with the clinicians to discuss your treatment options. They can tell you about the length of time hair will disappear for after each type of treatment. By discussing all of your options in detail you can find a way to get rid of stubborn hairs that you will be happy with.
