For most individuals (whether man or woman), hair removal is proactively a part of your regular beauty maintenance regimen. Each person may even use various methods on different target areas of their face and body to ensure the absolute best results.
The problem with many of these techniques and strategies is they become mundane, time-consuming, and costly tasks which may cause even more damage to the skin! Yet, we still seek smooth, hairless skin. It is important to understand all of your options, the myths, and pros & cons towards hair removal while achieving a healthy illuminating aesthetic. You might even be thinking about permanent removal so you have fewer things to remember to do during a standard morning routine. If this is you and you are tired of the hassle, we are offering a breakdown to assess the right solution for you!
Top 5 Hair Removal Methods Breakdown
One of the pros of shaving facial and body hair is it can be a great time saver! It’s also extremely easy. All you need to have is a new sharp razor (disposable, electric or traditional blades), shaving cream or even shower gel and you’re ready to begin the process. The best part is it’s a painless, self-sufficient method, and works on everyone- which is exactly what most individuals are looking for. The biggest con to shaving is it can leave behind ingrown hairs, unsightly razor bumps, possible nicks and cuts, etc., depending on stroke and condition of your skin. Also, people with sensitive skin types may experience irritation because a layer of skin is also removed in the process of shaving (Exfoliation is normally a good thing, but can also lead to dryness). It is imperative to continuously clean out and replace razors to avoid the dulling of the blade which ultimately creates most of the damage (…in frequent cases). However, the average results of a clean shave only lasts from 1 to 3 days.
The pros of tweezing and/or threading is you or an expert is essentially pulling out individual hairs by the root- which works wonders on small areas in order to maintain shape- like for designing brow lines! It is a fairly sanitary method, but it helps to perhaps rub alcohol before and after each use applying directly on to the specific area in order to lower your chances of redness or infection. Tweezing and/or threading can also last between 3- 8 weeks. For this reason it tends to be a bit cheaper because it keeps precise results for an extended period of time. The cons include, people with sensitive skin who may experience some type of tenderness. Also, if the proper thread is not used, it will result in irritated skin. Make sure you or the person you are allowing to perform this method is skilled in the art of those specific techniques.
The pros of waxing are the hair grows back thinner in comparison to shaving. It is a more comfortable form of hair removal for men because it’s a quick fix. Also, waxing is great for removing hair for large areas- legs, backs, Brazilian, etc. The cons consist of the potential aftermath if new, untouched natural or organic formulas are not used. If after waxing, a person experiences over exposure to the sun, hyperpigmentation may occur on the skin. Also, if not done properly it can cause premature wrinkles. It is vital to leave waxing to the experts in order to avoid a more painful process and/or unwanted outcome!
Tips: Hair has to be at least 1/4 inch long for the wax to grab it. So let your hair grow for a few weeks before waxing.
#2 Laser Hair Reduction
The pros of traditional electrolysis and lasers is that if done properly, it is considered safe and effective. A highly-trained technician destroys the roots with strong beams of light. Laser hair removal is really one of the most effective ways to have long-term hair reduction. It works best on large areas, not including the face, and cannot be performed on all hair and skin, colors and types. For instance, it’s optimal with dark hair and light skin. It won’t work on white hair and doesn’t work well on blond, red or grey hair either. Additional cons are that laser treatments are only approved by the FDA for permanent hair reduction and not permanent hair removal. It may take between 6-12 treatments to see results. You may need to go back every 6-12 months for a touch-up. Also, there can be side effects such as itching, swelling, or even burning.
