Make the Right Choice!
There are many methods of hair removal, but the type you choose depends on your lifestyle, your skin type and the area to be treated.
Here are the TOP FIVE most popular methods of hair removal:
Shaving — Using a razor to remove hair at the skin’s surface. This method is clean and easy, but it can result in razor burns, ingrown hairs and stubble.
Waxing — Applying warm wax to the skin and pulling it off swiftly. Waxing removes large amounts of hair at one time, but it can be slightly painful. It also requires visits to a salon for maintenance every 4 - 6 weeks for upkeep.
Threading — This technique requires only one tool: thread. Threading removes unwanted facial hair by plucking hairs one by one at their roots. Threading can hurt a little less than waxing (but not always) but doesn't remove as much hair at once or work well on larger areas such as legs, intimate areas or arms.
Epilation — Removing individual hairs directly from their roots with an epilator, which is a hand held device that pulls hairs from the root. Epilators can be pricey and painful if used improperly, but they are effective and long-lasting when used properly.
Laser therapy - Laser therapy uses light energy to destroy the root of each individual hair follicle while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed; this process is repeated until all hairs are gone from that area. While effective at removing unwanted hair, laser therapy isn't always permanent.
