Hair removal, also known as epilation or depilation, is the deliberate removal of body hair
Hair typically grows all over the human body. Hair can become more visible during and after puberty and men tend to have thicker, more visible body hair than women. Both men and women have visible hair on the head, eyebrows, eyelashes, armpits, pubic region,arms and legs. Men also have thicker hair on their face, abdomen, back and chest. Hair does not generally grow on the lips, the underside of the hands or feet.
Waxing is a form of semi-permanent hair removal, removing the hair from the root. New hair will not grow back in the previously waxed area for 4 to 6 weeks (although some people will start to see regrowth in only a week, due to some of the hair being on a different growth cycle). Almost any area of the body can be waxed!
Laser Hair Removal
Are you tired of shaving, plucking, or waxing? Do you get razor bumps or acne-like breakouts when you get rid of unwanted hair? If so, you may want to consider laser hair removal. Dermatologists use lasers to remove unwanted facial and body hair safely and effectively. Thanks to advances in technology, most people can safely have laser hair removal.
Removing the unwanted hair often requires a few visits. Most patients need between approximately 6 treatments. Afterwards, most patients are free of the unwanted hair for several months. When the hair regrows, most patients see noticeably less hair than before. The hair also tends to be finer and lighter in color.
