Body and facial hair is a natural process for men to grow during puberty, but it can become a nuisance. There are many different ways to do this, but what is the ideal way? The answer to this question will depend on your personal preference and skin type. Some men choose to eradicate their body and facial hair, whereas others trim or style it. Here are some of the most popular body and facial hair removal methods.
Body And Facial Hair Removal Methods
There are several methods for getting rid of the body and facial hair. These methods vary in pain level, time taken to perform the removal technique, and cost to perform these services professionally.
Lasers have become very popular for hair removal. The laser emits energy that disables the follicles so the hair cannot grow anymore. This method is relatively quick and usually only takes around eight sessions to be rid of unwanted hair (for good). The downfall to this technique is that it can be pretty costly, especially if you are removing body hair and facial hair. The best thing about choosing this method is that a laser is a good solution to avoid shaving and waxing, thus minimizing skin irritation. Furthermore, laser hair removal treatments are safe on most skin types.
Shaving is best performed with a good razor with sharp blades that will cut through the hair easily without causing any tugging or irritation to your skin. This is probably the most popular form of hair removal for men because it is quick, easy, and costs very little to perform at home. This method should be done every day to maintain optimal results; however, this can be time-consuming if you try to remove body hair and facial hair. It is also important to moisturize all areas after shaving to avoid dry, irritated skin, which leads to ingrown hairs.
Waxing involves applying warm wax to small sections of your body where hair needs to be removed. Once the wax becomes cold, it is then pulled off quickly and smoothly against the direction of hair growth, removing the unwanted body or facial hairs. You may experience some redness, irritation, or stinging during this process, but this should subside within an hour. Waxing also needs to be repeated regularly to maintain results. Usually every four weeks. Because the pain and itchiness associated with waxing will inhibit you from wanting to do it often enough for optimal benefits, you could end up with regrowth before the time limit has been reached, even if done correctly.
This method uses a fine needle inserted into each hair follicle and passed through a small electrical current to disable the bristles so they can no longer produce hair. This method is also very effective in permanently getting rid of unwanted body and facial hair. It is slightly more painful than waxing. However, it is still probably one of the least painful methods to remove the body or facial hair at home. Electrolysis usually only takes around 12-20 sessions to eliminate all your unwanted hairs. The downside to this method is that it is time-consuming and costly. Especially if you are looking for permanent results which will last several years.
Sugaring is very similar to waxing, but it uses a slightly different technique. The ingredients used during the process are sugar, lemon juice, and water – providing a natural alternative to waxing which can be more gentle on the skin without causing as much irritation. Like waxing, sugaring needs to be regularly repeated to provide optimal results over time. Usually every four weeks. One of the main benefits of sugaring is avoiding paying salon prices for an aesthetician or esthetician since you are doing this at home. However, sugaring does require some expertise. It does not cause any discomfort or damage to your skin, leading to scarring or ingrown hairs when appropriately done.
Laser is probably the best option to remove body hair because it is quick, effective, and long-lasting. It also has fewer side effects than electrolysis which can be very painful. The downside to the laser is that it can be costly depending on where you go for treatment. It only takes one or two sessions before you notice permanent results without worrying about regrowth anytime soon after your initial session(s). The laser does not require regular touch-ups like electrolysis either, so this makes it an even better choice if you are looking for a cost-effective method of removing the body or facial hair over an extended period.
