People are spending serious amounts of money on the latest techniques to remove unwanted body hair. Not the traditional hair on men’s faces and women’s legs, but the hair on our arms, chests, backs, private areas, and faces.
You may ask– Is it possible to remove hair from such large surface areas and is it safe? The answer to both questions is, yes. Removing body hair is done in a variety of ways and if done correctly, is also quite safe.
body hair removalThe fastest and most effective way to remove unwanted body hair is by undergoing laser hair removal treatments. Unlike electrolysis, where each hair follicle must be dealt with individually, laser therapy can impact several follicles simultaneously. This provides for faster progress and is great for removing hair from the back and chest, arms and legs.
Treatments for large areas can add up quickly. To do a larger area like the back might cost several thousand dollars. A number of treatments may be necessary because the laser technique can only impact hair that is currently in a growing stage. Also, there will be places where hair will grow back. Although it will grow back finer and lighter, the hair follicle needs to be destroyed to permanently stop the growth process.
Waxing can also be an effective method of body hair removal. It is far less expensive and works by extracting hairs out of their shafts. Because the hair follicle is not destroyed, hair will regrow, but it will take several weeks for it to reappear. Repeated applications of this hair removal process may ultimately affect the hair follicle and stop future hair growth. However, this is not guaranteed and the reason that waxing can’t be considered a permanent hair removal solution.
Sugaring is an adequate alternative if you’re sensitive to wax or prefer an organic solution. It works by applying a layer of cold or hot sugar-based mixture directly on the area where hair is to be removed. After the mixture hardens, it is very quickly peeled away from the skin in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Eureka – the body hair is removed from that area. The process can be repeated until the entire body surface is free of hair.
If you think it’s time to remove unwanted body hair, regardless of the reason, select the laser hair removal therapy if you can afford it. Waxing is probably the second best option. These are the methods of choice by many professionals for removing large areas of body hair.
