An Intro To Hair Removal For Newbies

by Anjelina Tongco

Hair removal is something that most people, if not all, are concerned about. There are several methods and techniques that you can utilize to get rid of unwanted hair. Some are perfect for beginners while others need a bit more experience and expertise. In this article, we’ll talk about the different hair removal methods so you can get familiar with them and decide which one would be best for you. 

Facial Hair Removal 

You may think that men are the only ones concerned with facial hair removal but you’d be surprised at how women are actually more worried about getting rid of facial hair than men. Here are some popular facial hair removal methods. 

  1. Shaving - shaving is one of the simplest and most convenient ways to get rid of excess and unwanted facial hair. One of the most common tools used for shaving is the razor. Men usually shave their facial hair off themselves at home with a cartridge razor while women usually book a dermaplaning appointment for peach fuzz removal. 
  2. Threading - threading is a common facial hair removal method that’s usually used to shape the brows though it can also be used to remove unwanted hair around the chin, upper lip, and cheeks. 
  3. Waxing - many people think that waxing is only used for taking off unwanted body hair but it’s definitely something that can be used to remove facial hair as well. Some of the most common uses of waxing for the face include removing stray eyebrow strands and hair from the upper lip for women. 

Body Hair Removal 

A lot of places offer professional body hair removal. There’s just too much surface area to offer so it’s a rather tedious task which is why a lot of women prefer to go to the pros. Some of the most common body hair removal methods also include shaving and waxing as well as the following. 

  1. Depilatory creams - this is one of the best ways to get rid of excess and unwanted body hair quickly and without pain. If you’re more of a DIY girl, you’ll love using depilatory creams. And, because depilatory creams dissolve the hair from the root, hair tends to grow back a little slower compared to other methods. 
  2. IPL - now this is something that only pros can do. IPL or Intense Pulsed Light therapy is often the choice for people who want to take the first step to permanently getting rid of unwanted hair from their body, especially on the legs and the armpits. It’s also ideal for bikini line hair removal, though a different type of equipment would have to be used for that. IPL is also great for those who want to reduce the risk of developing ingrown hairs and the hassle of possibly having to go through ingrown hair removal

These five methods are just some of the most popular hair removal methods that most people use. There are other options that you can explore like electrolysis, sugaring, and others.
