Today, a male body builder is not the only person into removing hair from all over their body. Medical treatment for hirsutism is selected based on the underlying cause. Drugs (anti-androgens) are often administered simultaneously while cosmetic hair-removal techniques are performed. It is important to note that these drugs, if required, must be taken continuously, because if discontinued, androgen levels will revert back to their original levels, resulting in re-growth of unwanted hair.
As dead skin cells are removed in this process the skin can feel quite smooth afterwards. The hair waxing action does cause the skin to sting and many find a soothing skin healing cream to be helpful afterwards. Some persons find the skin reacts with redness and bumps which disappear after a few hours.
To those who are using these old methods, there is good news; you can now make body hair removal enjoyable because you wouldn't have to suffer pain anymore. Shaving creams have been invented and they can be used for a pain-free body hair removal. Like waxing, they also leave a long lasting effect less the hassle. These products which are specialized for body hair removal are safe for use on the face, legs, arms, armpits, bikini lines and so on.
If you want to try electrolysis for permanent hair removal, then make sure to get someone who is properly trained in carrying out the procedure correctly. Another way is to get a personal electrolysis unit. However some experts recommend against it as it is difficult to use and it is ineffective if you do not have the right training to use the equipment.
Another method of hair removal is through waxing. Yes, it is less expensive, but it is also not permanent. And, it can hurt a bit too. To work, a layer of wax is placed onto the skin where the hair to be removed is located. Then, when the wax hardens just enough, it is quickly pulled away. The hair is removed, down to the root. You can do this at home, but it can be faster, more effective as well as offer better results when done professionally. The hair will re-grow, but it will take several weeks for it to do so. Waxing can be painful, but usually only for a few seconds and it is quite effective at removing hair from the follicle.
