Wondering how to remove body hair for men temporarily? Waxing can be an option. Waxing is a little painful as it gives a stinging sensation when the cloth-with-wax is pulled away from your skin. It removes hair from their roots, letting you enjoy the, hairless skin for almost 3- 4 weeks. You can either get waxing done at a salon by professionals or do it on your own with DIY waxing kits.
Men have been shaving since ages. All you need is a good sharp razor and a foaming cream, and you are good to go. Shaving is quick and easy and can be done with minimal practice. However, there is always a chance of nicks and cuts. Ordinary Razors also leave behind a slight pokey stubble.
- Laser (Permanent)
Do you wish to get rid of unwanted body hair once and for all? Try laser treatments for hair removal. Laser treatment is one of the prominent permanent body hair removal techniques for men. In this method, a laser beam is used that penetrates through your skin and destroys the hair follicles. Because of this removal of hair follicles, the hair falls out on its own and doesn’t grow back for a longer time. When it comes to large body part areas such as legs, arms, chest and back, laser treatment requires several sessions to do permanent hair removal for men.
Although this method probably works on every hair type, fair men with dark hair can see better results as the dark hair absorbs the light very well increasing the efficiency of laser hair removal.
Electrolysis is the true permanent solution to remove body hair for males. In this men’s body hair removal process, a needle-shaped electrode is used that sends an electric current through your body and destroys the hair roots. This prevents the growth of hair. This process works best in smaller areas such as underarms and eyebrows.
Hair Removal Tips for Men:
- Gently exfoliate with a scrub or body brush the day before you wax to remove any dead skin cells.
- To take the initial pain away, try pressing the skin lightly with your fingertips.
- If skin seems red and sore after waxing, gently use a cold press, wet flannel on the waxed area for a few minutes to calm the skin.
- DO NOT use alcohol-based perfumes and deodorants that causes profuse sweating for 24 hours after hair removal.
Though there are many different options to have full body hair removal for male, men should choose the option based on their pain threshold and required hair removal frequency. For great results, you can try out Veet body hair removal cream as well, which gives you a clean hairless experience within minutes without any pain.
