If you have unwanted body hair, you’ve probably tried different methods, like shaving and tweezing, to remove it. While these can be convenient, there are longer-lasting ways to remove body hair.
Choose a method that keeps you smooth for summer. Try out these long-lasting ways to remove unwanted body hair.
An expert in the sugaring method mixes a paste of all-natural ingredients, including sugar, and then applies the paste to your skin. Also, you can have short hair for this method to work.
Then, they remove the sugaring paste in the direction of the hair growth, taking with it the unwanted hair. Sugaring won’t tear your skin, and it pulls hair out from the root.
Since it pulls the hair at the root, you can get less hair regrowth after each session. And when hair grows back, it might be finer and sparser. When done correctly, this method can give you results that last for about six weeks.
Waxing is one of the most popular hair-removal methods. You’ll need at least a quarter of an inch of hair for the wax to hold onto, so keep that in mind. You can do the waxing treatment yourself at home or have it done at a salon.
Dermatologists recommend washing and drying your skin before applying the wax in the direction of the hair growth. Then, press the cloth strip over the wax, and remove the cloth strip in the opposite direction of the hair growth. You can soothe the skin with cold packs and non-comedogenic moisturizers. Now enjoy smooth, hairless skin for four to six weeks.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the fastest and longest-lasting ways to remove unwanted body hair. You can go to a medspa for this treatment. An esthetic professional will use laser light to damage the hair follicles. This gives you finer hair and less regrowth, meaning you have permanent hair reduction in the future.
Most people need two to six treatments for best results, with four to six weeks between treatments. The American Academy of Dermatology notes that most people remain hair free for months or sometimes even years. And you have dramatically less regrowth after that time.
If you have unwanted body hair and feel tired of shaving, try out the above methods. Save time and enjoy long-last results this summer.
