What is the most effective? The longest lasting?
Understanding All Hair Removal Options
Shopping for others is a challenge. Especially when the only thing more difficult than deciding on the right gift is choosing from a vast assortment.
A robe from Land’s End or JCPenney? A new shirt from Dillards or Old Navy? A new car? How about Honda? Or Subaru? Or Toyota?
It doesn’t matter what the object of your interest is. Choices abound. And it’s no different when it comes to hair removal.
Waxing? Sugaring? Electric tweezers? Laser hair removal? What will you get from each option? What is the most effective? The longest lasting? The most bang for your buck?
All those questions are addressed in a Zobuz article that informs consumers about the many hair-removal options outside of shaving.
Hair Removal Options
Zobuz goes through the details of many methods, which include:
*Laser hair removal: When the goal is to get and remain hair-free for good, this is your best option. The laser targets and destroys the hair follicle, disrupting the hair’s growth cycle. Results can be seen after one treatment, but the full impact will be seen following multiple treatments. Treatments should be spaced about six weeks apart by a reputable provider.
At-home laser hair removal is for those who prefer hair removal in the comfort of their home. It requires regular treatments to have smooth, hair-free skin. At-home devices do not use a real laser but rather intense pulse light or IPL.
*Waxing: Hot wax is applied to the skin and then removed rapidly, ripping out hairs and leaving smooth skin. This method will keep skin hair-free for four to six weeks before another session is needed. Waxing can be uncomfortable and rather expensive with continued treatment.
*Sugaring: This all-natural method uses an approach more gentle than waxing. Sugar, water, and lemon juice combine to form a paste. That paste is put on the hairy area, binding to the hair, and gently removing with less discomfort than removal with wax. It’s a great method for those with sensitive skin who don’t mind repeated treatments.
Want to remove hair in a less invasive manner? Electric tweezers might be the preference. The device uses electrical energy to remove unwanted hair from the body and face.
