There is a range of treatments and at-home tools becoming available for hair removal. Those are from hair removal mitts to clinical lasers. Hair removal is a personal choice, and here we cover the most popular methods, whether you’re looking for something long-lasting or just a quick fix.
When it comes to wax, many people think of pain! This method pulls the hair from the root, which is why it can be painful, depending on your threshold. If it’s your first time, then opt for a small, less sensitive area like the underarms or lower legs. Waxing is suitable for all areas of the body, but it’s important you carry this out with a trained professional to ensure your skin does not burn.
Waxing lasts longer than shaving and creams, and you would be expected to have another treatment after four weeks. You must grow your hair enough to allow the wax to grip the hair and pull it out. After your wax appointment, it’s important to follow the aftercare provided by your beautician to ensure there is no reaction.
Hair removal creams can get messy; however, they are cheap and a quick hair removal method. It is essential to read the labels to ensure no reaction on the skin. They can be used on all body areas and can be an excellent option for those hard-to-reach areas without getting any razor cuts.
With creams, they will only dissolve the hair from the surface of the skin, so it would be expected that hair will grow back from 2-3 days. This option can leave the skin feeling silky smooth in a matter of a few minutes.
This method is the most popular, as it is cheap, easy, and quick to reach for. If you’re constantly on the go, you will be taking a razor with you. Razors can be used on all body areas, but they must be used with caution and precision. Intimate areas can be harder to tackle as you would need to pull the skin for a clean shave.
Shaving isn’t a long-lasting hair removal method, and in most cases, you can expect the hair to grow back within a day.
Lasers Laser hair removal is the latest treatment that is rising in popularity over the last few years. This method allows you to have long-lasting results without the need to think about spending time on shaving or constant maintenance appointments. Professional in-clinic laser hair removal is suitable for all body areas and must be conducted by a qualified professional. At Pulse Light Clinic, we deliver the treatment with experienced laser practitioners qualified with a level-4 certificate in laser treatments.
Some lasers aren’t suitable for all skin types, so be sure to do your research before starting any treatments and make sure your chosen clinic conducts consultations and patch tests. On average,
after eight treatments, clients will see up to 80% reduction in hair with only sparse, fine hairs growing.
