In the world there are two forms of hair removal methods; temporary and permanent. Each has advantages and disadvantages. There is a newer method of hair removal called sugaring. I am going to talk to you about the different forms of hair removal and why you should try sugaring.
Temporary Hair Removal. Temporary hair removal is done by either depilation or epilation. Depilation is the removal of hair above the skin and epiliation is the process of damaging skin cells deep into the skin.
Shaving: Shaving is one of the best known and most popular form of temporary hair removal. There are many different types of shaving equipment. You can use disposable, or reusable razors, and they have different razors for men and women. Shaving is cheap and easy form of temporary hair removal. Shaving can cause razor burns, bumps, bleeding and ingrown hairs, and the results only last for a few days.
Depilatory Creams: Depilatory creams such as Nair, are creams that you rub onto a area of hair, and let it sit for 5-10 mins, and wipe away with a damp cloth. You have smooth skin for about a week. It sounds fine, but it is made of harmful chemicals that burn the hair off. If you have any cuts, or have sensitive skin, you can get very bad chemical burns.
Threading: Threading is a common Middle Eastern form of hair removal. It can be seen and done in malls all over the world. They use thread that is looped around the hair, and moved in quick motions to remove the hair. It looks like an effective way of removing hair, but all threading does is cut the hair at the follicle. It is actually very similar to shaving. If done wrong, threading can cause bacterial infections, redness, and irritation to the threaded area. It can also be very painful.
Waxing: Waxing is the best form of temporary hair removal. It removes hair from the follicle for an average of 4-6 weeks. The hair has to be at least half an inch long for waxing to fully remove the hair. It is quickly done. Waxing can have many side effects though. It can cause stinging, bleeding, ingrown hairs, bumps, redness, burning or tearing of the skin.
Permanent Hair Removal: Permanent hair removal is the act of completely removing the hair from an area of skin. It can be done through electrolysis, and sugaring. Permanent hair removal is done in many sessions, and it prolongs the hair growth, so it gets thinner, and thinner after each session, to the point where is doesn’t grow back at all.
Electrolysis: Electrolysis is a laser hair removal method. Light is directed at the hair and absorbed by dark pigment, which results in the destruction of the hair follicle.This method is sometimes permanent after many session. Laser hair removal is done in a number of sessions, which is very expensive and very painful to get done. Many places charge at least a couple hundred dollars up to thousands of dollars per a session.
Sugaring: Sugaring is a more relaxing alternative to hair removal than waxing. Sugaring can cause some redness, or irritation, but side effects are very minimal and are gone by the end of the day. Sugaring allows clients to have soft skin for weeks, as the all natural paste exfoliates as it removes unwanted hair. Along with the fact that the unwanted hair has been removed, and it stays off much longer than shaving or waxing, you have baby-soft skin. No stubble or growth for weeks! In fact, frequent sugaring can actually become permanent. You should have sugaring done every 4-6 weeks. After a few sessions, the hair will grow back slower and thinner, so your time in between sessions, becomes more and more.
If you are ready for soft, hair-free skin, then sugaring is the solution for you! Come and try sugaring today. You won’t regret it.
