If you feel like you’re constantly fighting a losing battle with your body hair, you aren’t alone. Many people feel the same way and have adopted new methods for getting rid of unwanted hair. Here are five ways to easily remove body hair.
1. Laser Hair Removal
Seeking help from professional technicians at a laser hair removal spa Manhattan is a great way to permanently remove hair and prevent regrowth. It works by converting the light energy from the laser to heat energy which is absorbed by the hair follicles. That disrupts the follicles’ ability to produce hair. Many people feel that the process is fairly painless, describing, at worst, a mild discomfort.
2. Hair Removal Creams
There are creams and lotions available that dissolve hair, allowing you to simply rinse it away without shaving. Best of all, they can dissolve some hair below the surface of the skin, meaning it will take longer for hair to regrow. If you are trying any new hair removal creams, it is best to test it on a small area to make sure it does not irritate your skin.
Trimmers allow for varying lengths of hair, from a smooth shave to a little stubble. If you suffer from ingrown hairs in sensitive areas, a trimmer can allow you shorten the hair without shaving it all the way down to the skin. The downside to trimmers is that, like razors, they will not slow the regrowth of hair.
Epilators are small devices that pull out several hairs at a time. It’s essentially like plucking the area of your body that you use it on. Since they pull out the root of the hair, it takes longer for it to grow back. This means you will not have to use it as frequently as other shaving devices.
Waxing can be done at home or by a professional at a salon. Wax is applied to the area of the body where hair is to be removed and then special paper is laid over it and pulled away from the skin. The paper pulls off the wax and the hairs that have become trapped in the wax. This too removes the root of the hair, slowing regrowth. Numbing sprays and creams can be used to make waxing more comfortable, and soothing lotions can be applied afterwards.
