Shaving removes hair down to just below the surface of the skin. It does not cause the hair to grow back thicker. How often you shave is determined by your individual hair growth rate. In the re-growth phase, the shaved areas may have a rough texture. This method of hair removal is appropriate for most body areas. Risks include: ingrown hairs, skin irritation, the spread of viral warts, or superficial infection after cuts.
Generally Plucking is performed with tweezers or thin threads called “threading.” It is a safe and inexpensive method of hair removal for smaller hair-bearing areas. Additionally it can be uncomfortable and time consuming but may be worthwhile for the few hairs you would like to remove on the eyebrows or face. Plucked hairs can take up to 6-8 weeks to regrow. You should not use this hair removal method for large areas because it can cause ingrown hairs or scarring.
Depilation is the use of a chemical to dissolve the hair shaft. Hair removal creams are painless and fast-acting. They are most effective after a bath or shower and should not be applied over small cuts or sunburned skin. Hair regrowth typically occurs in about 2 weeks.
Waxing can be performed at home or by a professional in a salon.
There are two primary hair removal methods of electrolysis: galvanic and thermolytic.
- Galvanic: Chemically destroys hair follicle; oldest method used, but slow and requires several treatments
- Thermolytic: Uses heat to destroy the hair follicle; faster and less tissue injury
Creams works by inhibiting an enzyme that is important for normal hair growth, but must be used on a continuous basis.
If none of these hair removal methods seem to address your particular problems, ask your doctor about oral medications to inhibit hair growth.
