How to get rid of all that unwanted hair

Most of us have weekly, if not daily bouts with hair removal. Having unwanted hair can get annoying and even frustrating when you have so many different products available to get rid of it. Contact us for more information.

But we are lucky too, because the tried and true method used long ago was pretty much just a razor and soap. Now though, you can’t turn around without a new product coming along that promises to get rid of unwanted hair.

There are even outpatient cosmetic surgery type procedures that can get rid of that hair permanently. So who do you listen to and which product do you trust? Well, that is the question, and below are some most popular products.

Temporary products that you can use at home

Let’s begin with the products you can use at home that are temporary, starting with depilatory creams. These work by reacting with the protein structure of your hair, causing the hair to dissolve and be easily washed/wiped away. See organic products.

This product is used on the legs, underarms, and bikini line and is generally painless. They work quickly, are inexpensive, and last about 2 weeks.

Next, if you are brave, you can wax. With this, a hot, sticky wax is applied and covered with a cloth strip.

You then quickly pull the strip off, taking the hair root and dead skin cells with it and is most of the time mildly painful. This usually lasts about 3-6 weeks, and can be applied pretty much anywhere; including lip, eyebrows, chin, and chest.

Eyebrows are a feature on your face that requires the most grooming. As fashion changes, having bold, perfectly shaped brows is becoming more popular, which is why it is important to maintain them. But, microblading techniques mean you can have perfectly symmetrical brows that are low maintenance, yet still look natural. Take a look at reviews here.

Cosmetic procedures to remove that unwanted hair

Laser hair removalYou can find more information on cosmetic surgery procedures that can be done to get rid of hair for good. These are generally pricier, however and some of them take multiple visits, but you won’t have to fool around with monthly hair removal products.

The two most popular methods are electrolysis and laser hair removal.

Electrolysis is the permanent hair removal method that eliminates any hair and treats all skin types while being recognised by the FDA. Electrolysis uses a minute amount of electricity that is gently applied to the base of the hair follicle destroying hair growth tissue, causing the hair follicle to be permanently eliminated.

The second is laser hair removal, which requires several treatments for it to become permanent. In this method, a laser beam passes through the skin to individual hair follicles. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.

Both are effective hair removal procedures, but due to their cost and time should be researched before jumping into.
