There was a time when only women and some men who were bodybuilders, swimmers, cyclists, or exotic dancers would remove body hair. However, times have changed and many men today are looking for permanent hair removal options.
Facial hair removal has been a practice since centuries.
However, we have witnessed drastic changes thanks to extensive research and development in the field of hair removal methods. Another event that is now becoming a norm of the society is that both women and men seek such methods. Apart from facial hair, men are looking to remove hair from their shoulders, upper and lower back, abdomen, and even pubic area.
As a general perception, removing unwanted hair is considered to be hygienic and healthy. But whatever the reasons are, it is an individual choice. So, as you read the following sections, you will find out just how easy it all is to remove unwanted hair in a short amount of time.
Hair Removal Options
Depending on the area you’re looking to target, different types of methods can be adopted. Go through each of the options to find the one that suits your budget and comfort level.
In this treatment, the light energy from the portable laser equipment is targeted to the skin that destroys the hair root in the required area and thus prevents further growth of hair. Basically, melanin, the compound that is responsible for hair color is receptive to the laser beam and so these techniques show faster results.
On average, there can be 5 to 8 treatments required that are 30 to 40 minutes each. You can remove or reduce hair growth from your back, chest, shoulders, abdominal area, and genital area. Depending on where you’re getting the procedure done, the cost can be anywhere from US $400 to $500 for each treatment.
In the electrolysis method, a metal probe or often an ultra-slim needle is inserted into each hair shaft and a low level electric current is applied. The electric shock is transferred through the needle thereby destroying the hair root. Generally, people experience a pricking sensation. After the cell is gone, there is no possibility of hair growing back.
It’s a short procedure that mostly lasts for 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the location of hair removal and growth. The approximate cost of each treatment is around US $40 to $50. Now since the treatment is slightly painful, you can choose the areas you wish to get the procedure done on.
On the other hand, if you feel that either of the procedures are exceeding your budget or your threshold for pain is low, you can choose other options as well―waxing, shaving, and hair removal creams.
Consulting a doctor before going for any of the mentioned treatments is a must.
