Removing of hair is found to be convenient for many people. Some may want to remove the unwanted hair just for the sake of beauty while other persons find it hygienic to do so.
But getting rid of unwanted hair in our body is more a question of his or her choice. It does not have any health benefits also. Kindly consult your doctor or dermatologist before using any hair remover product.
Depilation creams are one of those hair remover products. This cream works on the surface of the skin and dissolves the hair. Then it can be easily washed off or wiped. But be sure to test it on a surface of your skin first to look out for allergic reactions.
You should be particular to study the instructions carefully before you use it. They can be used for most parts of the body. The effect of these creams last to a maximum period of 15 days only.
You could get a better result if you use that sticky wax to remove the unwanted hair. These hair remover products are first spread on the skin. A cloth strip is used to take out the hair from the root by placing it on the waxed surface.
You can have your unwanted hair waxed either at home or a salon. Wax can be used hot or cold. You can forget about removing hair for 21 to 42 days.
However, depilation creams and wax are two hair removing products that have side effects. Depilation creams can cause allergies, superficial burns, and rash and even inflammation. Waxing can cause a lot of pain when the hair is ripped off.
Also there could be a tendency for temporary redness, bumps and inflammation. This could also make you susceptible for infections and other skin irritations.
Electrolysis by a professional could be one of those effective hair remover products. This involves inserting a needle and passing current through the hair roots and killing them.
But they are a long drawn up procedure taking up to 10 hours for upper lip and up to 16 hours for the bikini area. Since it is expensive it is ideal for removing hair only in small areas.
However, this product could cause a lot of side - effects like dry skin, scarring, scabs and also infection due to sterilizing of needles not being adequate. So make sure of the credentials of the doctor doing it.
Some do think that this procedure is painful, but rest assured that this product promises permanent hair loss. You should try out laser hair removal, one the longest lasting hair removal products.
This is mostly for people with dark hair. Here, the hair is removed by passing a laser beam at the hair roots. This is also sometimes painful and could also be very expensive.
You can however rest assured and you do not have to worry about any of those hair remover products for at least six months.
Laser removal of hair requires professionals to handle it and the side – effects also could be more pronounced like inflammation and redness which would require cold packs to heal them. Also you must not expose yourself to the sun before you have the laser treatment for removal of hair.
