What is the best way to get rid of unwanted hair?
Getting rid of unsightly, stubborn hair on the body and face is such an annoyance! Why can’t someone just come out with a safe, permanent solution that works for everyone? Since that hasn’t happened yet we will just have to suffer with the methods that are currently available: waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, laser, IPL, and electrolysis. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each method:
Waxing ($$) The process of pulling out multiple hairs by the roots using cool or warm waxexfoliate skin in between treatments to prevent ingrown hair or use an ingrown hair treatment product regularly. Use a hair growth inhibitor to extend the time period in between treatments and reduce the density of the hair.
