When you have excess hair on your body or face, it can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, especially when you wear revealing clothing. Fortunately, there are several ways to get rid of your unwanted hair so that you feel better about your appearance. There are multiple places where an aesthetician or a physician can perform unwanted hair removal, including:
- Above the facial lip
- Between the eyebrows
- On the facial cheeks
- Bikini area
While women often want to undergo unwanted hair removal, more men want to have smooth and hairless skin. With less hair on the body, it is possible to feel cooler in the summer, and an athlete’s performance is often improved without any resistance from the excess hair while running or swimming. When you have hair removed, you won’t want to see any marks on the skin from shaving or plucking, and you also won’t want any irritation from chemicals such as depilatory creams.
What Are the Different Ways to Remove Excess Hair?
After understanding your skin’s type and learning where you want the hair removed from, an expert can choose the proper method. Here are some of the hair removal methods that are available for males or females:
- Plucking – used for small hairs on the face
- Electrolysis – damaging the roots of the hair strands
- Shaving – using a manual, battery-operated or electric shaver
- Depilatory creams – chemicals that dissolve unwanted hair
- Waxing – application of warm wax to rip away hair
- Threading – used to remove eyebrow hairs
- Laser – destroys the roots of the hairs
