Everything about hair removal
Removing hair is one of the facts of life for women around the world. There are plenty of methods available to remove unwanted hair from the face, arms, legs and bikini lines, from threading and tweezing to waxing, shaving and electrolysis. All of them have their own pros and cons, while some methods are more suited to specific parts of the body than others.
Remove hair precisely with expert threading
Threading has been around for thousands of years, and it’s the ideal way to have your eyebrows shaped. The process is simple. A beauty specialist will use two lengths of strong twine, which they wind around their hands. By skilfully fastening these threads around individual hairs, they can catch them like a lasso, and gently remove them from their follicle. Because threading is fairly low-tech, it can be carried out in short appointments, and with skilled practitioners, the results can be beautifully sculpted eyebrows that make the most of your facial shape.
Remove hair painlessly with depilatory creams
Modern hair removal techniques include the use of depilatory creams. Often used on facial hair, these creams act by dissolving hairs at the root, leaving smooth, hairless skin. They can be applied in minutes and then washed off with water, and they are generally completely pain-free. The down side is that the smooth skin is temporary, lasting around 5 days before the hair returns.
Keep your skin perfectly smooth for longer by waxing
Waxing involves applying hot wax, which attaches itself to hairs at the roots, before being pulled off against the direction of hair growth. It’s a good way to completely remove large patches of hair on areas like the arms and legs or bikini lines, and can ensure smooth skin for as long as three weeks. The major downside is that waxing can sometimes be uncomfortable, or even painful if poorly executed.
Remove hair for the long-term with laser removal
Dermatologists can use modern lasers to completely destroy hair follicles, meaning that the affected hair will never regrow. After laser treatment, the hairs tend to fall out within 3 weeks, and the effects are permanent. The drawbacks of laser hair removal include the relatively high cost and the slight pain that some people experience, while it also tends to be more suited to those with lighter skin.
Zap your excess hair with electrolyis
In electrolysis, individual hair follicles are treated with electrically charged needles, which can also result in permanent removal. It’s a great method for smaller regions such as upper lips and eyebrows, but the process can be painstakingly slow due to the need to treat each follicle in turn.
Every way of removing hair from the body comes with its strengths and weaknesses. Some are suited to the face, while others work best with the legs. Some are ideal for lighter hair, while others work best with darker hair. The important thing is to use the right method, with a skilled beauty expert.
