Here are four common techniques women use to remove body hair:

  1. Shaving

According to WebMD, shaving remains one of the most popular ways for women to remove body hair. Women generally use an electric shaver or traditional razor to cut hair away from the body.

While hair does not grow back coarser, the process of shaving removes the soft tip of the follicle, leaving harder stubble in its place. Shaving typically only delivers temporary results, which last between one and three days, according to WebMD. It is suitable for the entire body, but it can leave painful ingrown hairs in more sensitive areas.

  1. Waxing

Waxing is a popular form of hair removal, according to Daily Makeover. Waxing works best for legs, underarms and the bikini area, and most experts recommend undergoing the treatment at a reputable spa. A qualified professional will be able to deliver good results, which typically last from two to six weeks.

  1. Plucking

Plucking or tweezing is an effective means of hair removal for small areas of the body, and many women use it on the face. The results last for up to eight weeks, but possible complications of ingrown hairs and its time consuming nature make it an impractical long-term solution for larger areas.

  1. Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is an increasingly popular method of hair removal, and an experienced professional can deliver attractive, long lasting results. Laser hair removal works to destroy the individual hair follicles, and treated hair falls out in two to three weeks. It works best for people with hair that is darker than their skin, though new developments mean improved results for different skin and hair combinations.

There are several ways to remove body hair, but most home remedies offer temporary reprieve without lasting results. If you are looking to remove body hair with a professional, long-lasting technique, it pays to visit an experienced spa with technicians who have knowledge on the various procedures.
