How to Get Rid of Unwanted Hair
There are often a few areas on our bodies where we have an unnecessary amount of hair. Unfortunately, these areas also seem to be the hardest to remove the hair from, meaning we have to groom both frequently and carefully in order to make sure that we are fully getting rid of the problem—and if we take a break, it quickly grows back. This leaves many seeking out methods that they can use to get rid of the hair, either temporarily or permanently. If you are trying to get rid of unwanted hair and even keep it out for good, here are some methods that you can use to make sure that your hair removal is successful and safe.
While electrolysis is not the most sought-after hair removal method, it is extremely effective, so much so that is recognized by the FDA as a successful and permanent form of hair removal. In the process of electrolysis, the specialist uses a very tiny needle to essentially shock and destroy the hair follicle at its place of growth. While the process of electrolysis is guaranteed, most people may not choose to undergo this type of hair removal as it can often be a little more painful and slower than some of the other methods out there. This is especially true if the person in question has a large amount of hair that they want to remove, which would most likely require several sessions. However, electrolysis is perfect for those who have a small portion of hair that they want to remove, such as hair near their eyebrows or fine hair in the chin area.
Epilation is the perfect process for those who don’t want to permanently remove their hair but want long-lasting results after going through the process. Epilation, which uses a device that pulls at the hairs and removes them from the roots, is the perfect cross between waxing and tweezing. Those who use epilation will generally not see hair regrowth for a month, and some have reported regrown hair to be finer, meaning the hair is less noticeable and easier to remove during following epilation sessions. Fortunately, epilation is something that can be done at home, and there is a variety of different epilators that are designed for all areas of the body. This method may also be painful; it is recommended that users exfoliate beforehand and apply ice to painful areas as necessary.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the most commonly used method of permanent hair removal. During laser hair removal, a specialist uses a concentrated beam of light to target the pigmented section of the hair follicle, thereby damaging it and making it so that it cannot grow back. Laser hair removal is very effective in permanently preventing hair from growing back but will often take several sessions as it must target hair during the active growing phase. However, it is said that the only side effect that will be experienced is a slight discomfort, which can easily be taken care of after sessions are finished.
Overall, there are quite a few hair removal methods that can be utilized to get rid of those unwanted hairs on your body. If you’re looking into temporary or permanent hair removal methods but are unsure of which route to take, use the ideas above to get a better idea of which method might work best for you and how you might be able to utilize them for your individual needs.
