In some cultures body hair is a sign of beauty, but in most societies efforts are made, to a greater or lesser degree, to remove visible hair. As facial hair is a male characteristic it is not surprising that women with facial hair choose to eliminate it. Facial hair removal for women is often carried out by waxing. It has become quite common too for men to remove their chest hair even though it is a male characteristic. Chest hair removal is also usually done by waxing. Fashions and fads come and go – many women and some men remove their pubic hair either fully or partially, and even have it shaved or waxed to create designs and patterns.
Depilation is where hair is removed from the surface of the skin and includes shaving and using chemical depilatory creams. Here the hairs grow back in a short time and the procedure has to be repeated often.
Epilation involves removing the hair down to the root, and includes plucking, waxing, sugaring and threading. It also includes lasering, electrolysis and intense pulsed light (IPL). Epilation methods are longer lasting, and the last three mentioned are intended to be permanent. However, maintenance is sometimes needed on a six monthly to a yearly basis.
The choice of a hair removal method is down to personal preference. Factors that can influence the choice, apart from convenience, are level of discomfort and cost. In general epilatory methods are less comfortable but have longer lasting results, whereas depilatory methods are generally pain free but there is the inconvenience of constant repetition.
As far as cost is concerned shaving and plucking are the least expensive, followed by waxing and sugaring done at home. Most procedures can be carried at a beauty salon, but of course are more expensive, done as they are by a professional. Lasering, electrolysis and IPL are usually entrusted to a professional, and are the most expensive of all treatments although affordable laser hair removal is available if you do some research.
Apart from skin irritation, one of the side effects of hair removal is ingrown hairs. Fortunately, ingrown hair removal treatment is available.
