What is the best method of hair removal? We all know about the most popular methods of hair removal- Laser, Shaving and Waxing and yet it still remains unclear on which method is the best. There is no denying the growing popularity of laser hair removal but it may not be best for every area…. Here is my best advice on the confusing world of hair removal.
Laser is a more permanent method of hair removal. And while it may cost more, results will be permanent. After an initial course of treatments you will only need a touch up treatment every 6 – 12 months and boy does it feel great not having to worry about whether your bikini line is beach ready or not. Laser is also great on the underarms, they stay bump free and feel soft and smooth. So I think that laser is by far the best for bikini and underarms, but not so for legs and facial areas. Waxing is a great method for smaller areas like eyebrows and upper lip which aren’t easy to treat with laser. On the legs its best to either wax or shave, this is because after laser IPL treatment you need to keep out of the sun or you risk getting pigmentation and the legs are one part of the skin that cop the most sun.
Laser treatments are an excellent solution for those who suffer from ingrown hairs. If you do suffer from ingrowns and insist on waxing invest in a good ingrow stopper lotion, these are widely available from your local beauty salon or pharmacy and work really well. They are also great for men who suffer from stubble rash.
