 Top 3 Popular Hair Removal Methods for Women

Here are some Popular Hair Removal Methods for Women. Women have so much to take care of when it comes to grooming. From doing their hair to getting their feet nicely pedicured, women are always looking for the best and quickest method to maintain their appearance. One grooming task that most women have to worry about is hair removal. Some women are fortunate enough that they don’t have much body hair to worry about, while some are cursed with genes or come from an ethnicity where body hair runs deep.

Women from all over the world have voiced their opinions on their preferred hair removal method that is specific to their bodies. Find out which one(s) is right for you!

1. Laser Hair Removal: What is it?

Women’s laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for both women and men. It depends on a laser that penetrates and targets the hair follicle so that the root of the hair is destroyed. Contrary to popular belief, the hair doesn’t simply fall out after one treatment, instead, the hair follicles are weakened after each session. To ensure that the hair follicle falls out completely, it is necessary to have at least 5-6 sessions.

What are the side effects?

Overall, it is a very safe and painless procedure. The most common side-effect is having irritated skin for a few days. In very few cases, there may be discoloration and darkened pigmentation.

What area is it best for

Laser hair removal is great for any part of the body. However, with certain lasers, the best candidates for laser removal seem to be women with light skin and dark hair. The laser targets melanin, which is dense in dark hairs, in the hair follicles. However, there is a new laser called Nd: YAG that is safe for dark-skinned individuals as well as light-haired individuals.

How much

Depending on the size of the area, the laser clinic you visit, and the city you live in, prices can range anywhere between $50-$500+.

How long

For best results, the overall process of laser hair removal may require 5-6 sessions, with a possible touch-up the following year. Each session doesn’t run over 30 minutes, depending on the area that is targeted.

2. Waxing: What is it

Waxing has been the preferred method of hair removal before laser hair removal became popular. Today it is still widely used. In the past honey, treatment was used, and now more and more soy-based solutions are used. Soy compounds are more gentle on the skin because they only adhere to the hair and not to the actual skin.

What are the side effects?

The only downside about waxing is that it can lead to infection, because the entire hair, shaft, and root are being pulled out.

What area is it best for

Waxing can be done almost anywhere on the body. Popular areas include eyebrows, chin, upper lip, legs, bikini, and Brazilian wax.

How much

The only downside about waxing is that the price can add up. Waxing for a small area is around $5-$10 depending on the home solution or beauty clinic solution. It can get up to $40-$70 for larger areas.

3. Shaving

Shaving is still pretty common despite the fact that it requires constant work and hair grows back quickly. Shaving your hair doesn’t remove the hair, it simply just cuts the hair. For some women, shaving is not a good option because their hair grows back fast. For women with fine hair that grows slowly, shaving might be a good option.

What are the side effects?

Shaving is pretty safe, aside from possibly cutting yourself or getting razor burn. Shaving coarse hair, such as in the bikini area, can lead to ingrown hairs that can lead to infections.
