Unwanted Body Hair Removal

Women and men are shelling out large amounts of cash just so they can get rid of the unwanted body hair. This unwanted hair goes beyond facial hair or leg hair. The unwanted hair are those found in other parts of the body like the chest, arm, back and genitals. Can hair be removed from these large skin areas? Is it even safe to remove the hair in these areas? To both questions, the answer is, "Yes." Removing hair off these areas can be done, but it must be done properly. In many cases, it is best that the hair removal be done by a licensed professional.

How to Get Rid of Unwanted Body Hair

If your finances allow, the quickest way you can get rid of unwanted body hair is by having it removed with a laser. Laser treatments are rather expensive, but they permanently remove unwanted hair. Not like the electrolysis treatment that deals with every follicle by itself causing large amounts of time to be spent and tenderness to be experienced, the laser method of removing hair can work more than one follicle at a time. This allows for faster removal times and can take the back, chest, arm, and leg hair off in no time.

Again, laser hair removal treatments are expensive. Removing hair from the back tend to cost between $2000 and $3000 per treatment. A laser hair removal treatment consists of several sessions since the laser technique can only get rid of the hair that is growing at the time of the treatment. After several sessions, hair may still grow back, although the hair would be considerably finer and lighter. To remove hair permanently, the hair follicles must be killed so that they do not grow new hair anymore.

Waxing Unawanted Body Hair

The second way to remove unwanted hair is by waxing. Waxing costs much less than electrolysis and laser hair removal treatments. Waxing takes the hair out of the shaft. The hair will come back because there has been no permanent harm done to the follicle. The good news is that hair will not show up for weeks at a time. Repeating this method will begin to affect the follicles and the hair will eventually stop growing. However, this is not a guaranteed way of removing hair permanently. Waxing is a temporary hair removal method, not a permanent one.

Unwanted Body Hair Sugaring

Waxing and sugaring are similar body hair removal methods. The only difference is that sugaring uses a mixture of sugar, honey and lemon, whereas waxing uses a mixture of beeswax and paraffin. Waxing and sugaring work by putting a thin amount of cool or hot wax (or sugar-based mixture) on the area where the hair should be removed. The mixture is left to harden and then pulled off against the opposite direction of the hair growth. The hair is taken off with the wax or sugar. This step is repeated until all the hair is removed from the desired area. Waxing and sugaring are two body hair removal techniques that you can easily do yourself right in your home. However, be aware that they can be painful, unless you have a high tolerance for pain.

If you have made up your mind to remove unwanted hair, no matter what you reason is, go for laser hair removal if you can afford it. It may be expensive but you will never have to deal with unwanted body hair ever again. If you are on a budget and you don't mind doing it every month, go with waxing or sugaring.
