Hair Removal Methods

 

There are several options when it comes to hair removal methods. Some are gentler, some are quicker, some are more thorough and others have a longer lasting effect. Read on to learn about and compare the six most common hair removal methods.

THE SIX MAIN HAIR REMOVAL METHODS

Here is everything you need to help you to decide on which of the six most common hair removal methods is best for you:

WET RAZOR SHAVING

1. WET RAZOR SHAVING

This hair removal method doesn’t hurt (if done with care) or take up a lot of time.

However, the hairs will start to grow back within one to three days.

 

 

EPILATING

3. EPILATING

This method involves a series of tweezer heads on a spinning wheel. When you turn an epilator device on, the tweezers pluck out your hairs from the root as you move it over your skin.

If you want smooth legs for weeks, don’t mind some pain and don’t have sensitive skin, an electric epilator is a good choice.

 

WAXING

5. WAXING

For smooth skin lasting one to two months, we recommend waxing.

Hot and cold wax kits are available as home treatments if you feel confident doing this yourself. There are also plenty of salons if you would rather turn to a professional.

2. LASER HAIR REMOVAL

If you want to remove your body hair permanently consider laser hair removal.

This involves light impulses penetrating deep into your skin, heating the root of the hair and destroying it. The skin and tissue are not damaged in the process.

This type of treatment costs the most up front than any other method and should only be carried out by an experienced professional.

4. ELECTRIC RAZOR SHAVING

The shaving heads on electric razors glide gently over your skin and cut the hair directly on the surface of the skin.

This works simply and quickly, but must be repeated once the hair starts to grow back after one to three days.

6. HAIR REMOVAL CREAMS

If you’re worried about hurting yourself with a razor try a hair removal cream.

They work with ingredients that dissolve keratin. This causes your hair to disintegrate quickly and completely without pain.

Your hair will likely grow back after approximately five to seven days, but somewhat softer than before.

WHICH HAIR REMOVAL METHOD LASTS THE LONGEST?

Shaving:

Perfect for quick and painless hair removal. Hair generally grows back within 1-3 days.

 

Hair Removal Creams:

Pain-free, no-hassle hair removal method for those who want to catch every last hair. This is done by dissolving the hairs and this lasts for 5-7 days.

 

Epilators:

Great if you don't have sensitive skin and want long-lasting results. With an epilator you can use it time and again reaching even the smallest of hairs. Hair grows back within 1-2 months.

 

Wax Hair Removal:

A cost-effective, long-lasting method of hair removal. Hot and cold wax both work well for home treatments and legs remain hair-free for 1-2 months.

 

Laser Treatment: 

Permanent hair removal for people willing to spend more money on getting that silky smooth feel. This can be done using a laser at home, or by professionals.

 

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
