Everyone wants to have a smooth face without getting irritated from painful or embarrassing hair removal. Many people can wax, tweeze, pluck, or use electrolysis but what is the best hair removal method? Here are some methods to consider:
Most people with severe cases of acne will not like hot water and chemical solutions applied to their delicate skin. Although you can apply alcohol or olive oil directly to your skin to temporarily ease itching, it is a lot better to look for alternative treatments that do not irritate the skin or cause permanent scarring.
There are also many options for removing hair. No matter which method you choose, make sure you cover the area you want to be removed with an effective over-the-counter treatment. These treatments can contain chemicals, waxes, salon’s solutions, and even heat.
When you shave, it removes the hair only at the follicle; it does not get removed from the skin. In fact, razor bumps often occur where the skin has been damaged and still needs to heal.
Laser Hair Removal works by using a beam of light to kill the cells responsible for hair growth. This process is most effective when the skin is dark. It can take weeks or months for the new hair to grow out.
The Epilator is a thin, lightweight device that you place against the skin. It takes about one minute for the Epilator to kill all the hair follicles. It is effective in all areas except for the eyebrows, eyelashes, and chest. After the procedure, there is typically a lot of redness and a white coating can be seen in the area where the Epilator was used.
Electrostimulation works by applying an electrical current to a small strip of skin near the skin’s surface. During the process, the skin feels tingly and the entire area feels numb. People who have done electrolysis and experienced scarring usually go back to do it again, as the scars are too hard to deal with. This procedure can be painful and sometimes, electrolysis scars require medical attention in order to repair.
Electrolysis is an invasive process and should be avoided if possible. Depending on the severity of the scarring, an expert will need to remove the tissue from the root of the hair.
The procedure that many women dread is also the most expensive method of hair removal. Not only is it uncomfortable and tedious, but it will leave black marks, even when the hair is light.
Waxing will remove only the hair, which is quite soft and comfortable, and leaves a much darker scar. Waxing may not be good for women with dark hair, since the wax residue will darken the hair.
Hot waxing kills the hair follicles but leaving a residue of wax may cause discomfort and even pain. Dead skin cells can come off during waxing, but they have a tendency to come back after the wax has dried.
Rashes are very common problems with any type of hair removal. Creams and ointments can be applied directly to the affected area to treat the irritation.
