Hair removal: should you?

Hair removal, or the desire to have one, comes from many reasons. Since time immemorial, this has been a known practice already. From the time of the Egyptians until now, people have been doing it for hygiene or cosmetic reasons.

Hair removal to feel and look good

There is no right or wrong reason to feel beautiful. There is no right or wrong reason to feel beautiful. Admittedly, most people who go for treatments to remove facial and body hairs are for aesthetic reasons. So some go for hair removal to have youthful-looking skin. Others believe that hair-free skin is synonymous to smooth and flawless skin that makes them feel more confident. If this treatment helps you boost your confidence, then why not?

Hair removal for hygiene purposes

Some people are not comfortable with the thought of their hair trapping bacteria in sweat that results in body odor. They would instead go hairless and smell good as they keep their skin clean and healthy.

Hair removal for practicality

Shaving is always an option, but for some, it can be a bit of a hassle. Those in the film or beauty industry sometimes need this as part of their job requirements. If you are a swimmer, body hair can create drag. So to address this, they would rather have their hair removed than shave every time.

If hair removal has been a practice from 4000 to 3000 B.C., there is a reason. Here are some of the ways to have your hair removed:

  • Shaving
  • Plucking
  • Waxing
  • Laser
  • Removal creams
  • Threading
  • Electrolysis

Whatever option you may go for, there will be pros and cons. For example, shaving may be the most common and accessible, but it can also give you razor burn or ingrown hairs if done haphazardly. Lasers are also suitable, but you need to set aside time and money for it, but it is for a longer term.

No matter your reasons, aesthetics, hygiene, or practicality weigh the pros and cons. And most importantly, go to reputable medical spas that can help you start your hair removal journey.
