Hair Removal - The Types
Men and women alike need to remove hair sometime in their life. This can be difficult as there are quite a few different methods available to us, how do we know which ones to choose, and what are the benefits of one type over another. In this article I will look at some of the most popular forms of laser hair removal listed with their advantages and disadvantages. Ill give you a rating of how painful they are out of 10, how effective they are out of 10, and their value out of 10. Ill be looking at permanent and non permanent methods. Please have a look at my site at home laser hair removal. Lets get started, first up is standard shaving.
Shaving / Trimmers / Razor
The classic shaving method is the oldest of the discussed hair removal methods. It's probably the cheapest too and the one you can best do by yourself (maybe not your back though!). The razor (or appliance you're using) cut the hair off where the hair goes into the skin, or just above it if you decide to use trimmers on a low setting. This means the hair will start to grow back pretty much straight away, since the root has not been damaged or compromised in any way it can continue to just push the hair out. This means, especially in the case of men, you will need to shave every day if you wish to look smooth and clean shaven. This is OK with your face, but if it's in a tricky area such as your back it's less than ideal so you should look at longer lasting solutions which actually damage the hair follicles a bit which brings us to...
Waxing is a method which is good because it does weaken the root of the hairs. This means that the hairs will not grow back as dark and strong. It may even reach the point that they will grow back, but you wont be able to see them at all. Another thing I personally like about waxing is how it takes a while for the hair to grow back. Waxing completely plucks the hair from the root, not just the surface, so the hair follicle will need to grow the hair from scratch again. The process of waxing involves dripping wax on the skin and then using a fabric cloth or similar material to rip the hair that sticks to the cloth strip out of your skin. It's effective, but quite painful! Read more about waxing.
Laser Hair Removal
There are two types of laser hair removal that done in a clinic, and home laser hair removal. Both are very effective methods for more of a long term solution to your hair problems. It doesn't hurt too much either! However there are questions, such as is laser hair removal permanent - http://www.at-home-laser-hair-removal.org/is-laser-hair-removal-permanent/ . People are also concerned about the side effects too. In a nutshell what happens during laser hair removal is the device targets your hair, not your skin. It can do this because it can see the darkness which the hair is made up of which of course is closely connected to the hair follicles, then it attempts to destroy the hair follicles using heat & light. You will usually need several treatments however as your hair is always in different stages of growth.
