Hair. We are covered with it. Some have more than an ample growth while others grow them only in tufts or patches. Hair had several beneficial roles in those times when our prehistoric predecessors still lived in caves and slept on the soil. Hair gave them with warmth, shade, as well as a barrier to prevent insects from crawling and getting into bodily crevices.

Nevertheless, in this modern age where humans now typically live indoors, a surfeit of hair has come to be viewed as something undesirable. In women, hair found in the armpits, legs, bikini line, neck, and/or face is not only undesirable but is considered a reflection of the state of a woman’s personal hygiene.

Considering society’s perception and fixation about unwanted hair found in women, plenty of hair removal products are available for those suffering from an overabundance of hair in the parts of the body enumerated above.

Shaving cuts the hair off at the skin surface. It is the most convenient of all hair eradication processes and also the most short-term means of keeping hair away.

Plucking – commonly with the use of a pair of tweezers – is another hair removal process. Plucking hair off is painful for most women. Further, removing hair through this method is time consuming because one has to pull out the hair one strand at a time. Another thing to consider if you usually pluck unwanted hair from your body: There is a growing number of proof pointing to plucking as the cause of infection in the hair shafts.

Waxing is a different hair removal method. It involves softening up up waxing strips and placing these on the leg. After a few moments, the strips are yanked out.

A painless and more lasting method of hair removal uses laser technology. Laser hair removal targets melanin within the hair gland. A high concentration of laser beam is trained at the hair follicles; the beam zaps the melanin, thus discouraging hair growth.

Confer with a certified dermatologic medical practitioner to learn more information about the best hair removal procedure for you. You need to do this for your own safety and protection.
