Types of Hair Removal Methods

Body hair is a perfectly natural thing; however, many people choose to remove body hair because they don’t like the look or the feel of it. Fortunately, there are several options you can choose from when it comes to removing body hair. 

Shaving, Plucking, and Waxing 

Many people choose to stick to the basics when it comes to removing hair. With shaving, plucking, and waxing, you will have to keep up with each method as a regular part of your routine. Shaving is a common option for the legs, arms, and face. When you shave, you remove the part of the hair follicle that is above the skin. You’ll need to regularly shave to keep the skin smooth. An unfortunate side effect of shaving is razor burn, and as the hair grows out, stubble from shaving can be quite uncomfortable. 

Plucking is a good option for removing a few hairs at a time. It’s very common to use for shaping eyebrows. Plucking removes the entire hair follicle, so it takes longer to grow back. Waxing will also remove the entire hair follicle. However, it isn’t the most pleasant experience and can even be painful, not to mention expensive! 

Hair Removal Creams 

Hair removal creams, also called depilatory creams, will dissolve the entire hair follicle. With this treatment, you can remove the hair for longer but you will have to do repeated treatments. There are a variety of hair removal creams available and they are made for different areas of the body. For example, some are specifically for the face or the pubic region. Before using a cream, make sure you read the label and follow all instructions properly. Improper use can result in allergic reactions, burns, or other complications. It’s best to test the cream on a small area of your skin before you use it on the intended area.

Laser Hair Removal 

If you are looking for a more permanent solution, laser hair removal is a great solution. With this treatment, a very precise laser is used to destroy the hair follicle. At Femme Moderne, our laser device removes hair safely and effectively on all skin types, and all it takes is 6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to be hair-free! We tailor hair removal treatments specifically to the client’s skin to ensure a great result. It is important to know that laser hair removal will only be effective on brown or black hair.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe procedure, but like any cosmetic treatment, it does carry some potential risks. Temporary side effects such as redness, mild swelling, or skin sensitivity may occur. Serious complications are rare but can include burns or skin discoloration when performed by an inexperienced provider. It is imperative that you update your treatment provider of any medication changes, sun exposure, or other changes to your lifestyle that may affect your skin.

Can laser hair removal be performed on any part of the body?

Laser hair removal can be performed on virtually any part of the body, including the face, underarms, bikini area, legs, arms, and back. It is essential to discuss your specific treatment areas and goals with a qualified professional to ensure the best results.
