Forget waxing and shaving, think laser! If you've been thinking about getting a Brazilian, consider Brazilian laser hair removal over waxing or shaving for a more permanent solution. Brazilian laser hair removal at Ideal Image is and has been one of our most popular laser hair removal treatments over the years. Over the last 10, we've performed well over 6 million laser hair removal treatments nationwide, and we're the only hair removal company in the country dedicated exclusively to laser hair removal, it's all we do.

But, salon visits for facial hair waxing will add up. Even if you just go once per month, you’ll spend much more on this method than on a razor, shaving creams, and replacement batteries or blades in the long-term. The advantage of going to a salon to wax is you can expect all the hair to be gone, and the spa professional will shape it nicely to avoid any rough or uneven patches. This is pretty important for eyebrows and sideburns.
“Hair grows in cycles, typically every 4-6 weeks depending on the part of the body. Given how laser hair removal only works on hair that’s actively growing, we estimate it takes 4-6 treatments to effectively treat any given area with our laser. We will get about 80% of the actively growing hairs. You would then return every 4-6 weeks (depending on the area) to treat the new active growth. Occasionally additional treatments are necessary -- but not often.”
Okay so i have struggled for many years to permanently remove hair in various regions of my body. I suffer from hirtuism which is basically hair EVERYWHERE which is very uncomfortable and embarrasing. After going through bottles of nair and shaving cream I have finally decided to seek a more permanent result for my stomach, chest, back, and possibly face region. I want to get the most bang for my buck and i was wondering which of these products you recommend for my personal needs so i can finally say goodbye to these troublesome follicles. I have a fairly pale skin tone with brown hair but the hair is fairly thin so i won’t need anything too heavy duty.But i want a product that won’t irritate the skin and can be used on all parts of the body including the face. I would also like to spend the least amount of money possible while recieving permanent results. Please help!!
Exfoliation brushes – there are two brushes which you can use for exfoliation. The gentle exfoliation is great for use on more sensitive areas of your body, even places where you do not intend to epilate, such as your chest. On the other hand, the deep body exfoliation brush can be used before and in between epilation sessions to remove dead skin cells and reduce and prevent ingrown hairs. This deep exfoliation brush head is 6 times more effective than just using a manual scrub for the same job.
Hi, thanks for your reviews – very comprehensive and helpful. I wanted to ask whether the Remington is painful to use? I hear IPL us usually less painful than laser – would you agree? I am interested in the Remington for my bikini line, do you know the dimensions of the part that comes into contact with skin? – so I can judge whether it’s suitable for me.
Threading is a very common practice in Middle Eastern and Asian countries that involves using a thin, doubled cotton thread pulled super-taut to roll over spots where you wish to remove hairs, thus pulling them out. While it isn't quite as labor intensive as plucking hairs one at a time, it works best on smaller areas such as the eyebrows, upper lip and cheeks. And unlike using tweezers, threading is much trickier to try if you've never been trained in it, so head to a salon with a professional who specializes in it for the best results.
That said, it can take a little longer to fully work on thicker hair. "Some hair is just very resistant, and sometimes new ones come out due to hormonal changes or other hair bulbs becoming active during the treatment period," explains Dr. Birnur Aral, Director of the Good Housekeeping Beauty Lab, who has personal experience with laser hair removal.

Since you don’t want to spend too much, I can only recommend a machine that I recommend for people that want something mid-range and are ok to wait a little longer for results, rather than buying the top of the market machines. I can’t tell you how many flashes as it depends on what body areas you do, how many hairs you have per hair follicle, how thick your hair you can see there is many factors that determine # of flashes required for full body treatment. I would personally recommend you look at the this machine here as I think it’s the best option for you and at a good price range.
Everyone always says to me, “Amelia, you are so lucky that your is hair so thick. You’re like a horse.” I accept the compliment and smile because yes, I am lucky. This equine mane not only allows me to bond with wild mustangs, it also retains the scent of every restaurant I’ve ever been in. More than anything, it means I hit the jackpot with fat-follicle’d parents. But no good gene ever goes unpunished. For every superfluous strand that grows on my head, at least three sprout on my legs.
Laser hair removal is not a one-size-fits-all. You are probably already aware that you will see the best results if you have pale skin and dark hair – we’ll talk about why later – but if this isn’t your colouring, don’t give up. There are laser and IPL hair removal machines for every skin tone, you just need to find the one that suits you best. So how do you know if it will work for you?
The biggest downside to shaving is that the hair will grow back very quickly. No matter how close of a shave you get, you can expect hairs to grow back up and be slightly visible again within a maximum of three days. If you choose to shave the hair, you may have to do it more frequently than you would with other methods. Also, there may be a bit of concern over accidental cuts and skin irritation (the dreaded razor-burn bumps!).
I have had the Braun 7681 wet and dry for about 2 yrs and love it, thanks to your review! I’m 62 yrs old and bought it to use primarily on my face only. I’ve been wondering if it is ever necessary to replace the tweezer head on an epilator. I clean the tweezer head after every use but has recently been started breaking the hairs off rather than pulling from the root. What’s your take on this? Thank you for your informative and thorough epilator reviews. Mary
As the laser flashes, its transfers light energy to the hairs. The hairs contain a pigment called melanin. Darker hairs contain more melanin and the more melanin that the hairs contain, the more light energy they will absorb. As they absorb the light, this energy becomes heat energy, which burns the hair, damaging it. It is this burning which deactivates the hair. However, because of their growth cycle, the hairs will not always be as responsive to the laser due to the amount of melanin they contain changing.
Just came across this: Silk’n SensEpil XL 65k. It seems to have what the Tria system falls short in: it has a cord which means no need to stop and recharge, and it’s 65,000 pulses which is very close to what Tria claims to offer. Tria can operate to a limit of 90,000 pulses, and cannot be refilled and thus needs to be thrown away. However the XL 65k, once the 65,000 pulse-limit is reached, can be refilled with a cartridge. Plus the treatment window is 6cm2 which is very large and suitable for large areas, unlike the Tria system which is less than half of that. It seems to be the best device in terms of time saving, efficiency and investment. Opinion?

Unless you’re having laser or electrolysis treatments or are really desperate for quick hair removal, put down the razor. Shaving creates blunt edges that make the hair appear thicker, not to mention being extremely temporary and likely will only last a day. It’s OK for your body, but not your face. So don’t be fooled by these little tiny razors in cute colors marketed to women.
One thing to note, though, is since you’re dealing with chemicals, it’s always a good idea to do a patch test to see if you’ll have a bad reaction to the formula. Some people might be especially sensitive to the ingredients used in the creams, so try it out on a small section of your body — like part of your arm or leg — before using it all over. It’s also a good idea to pay special attention to the directions: some creams are specifically made for your chest and back, while others are safe to use on more sensitive areas.
Thanks for contacting me. Don’t worry, most people that contact me are just like you having no idea about hair removal machines/treatments. I would advise not using any of the machines on your scalp, usually men tend to have no fear and use it on their face when the machines aren’t actually tested or recommended for use there but I would advise against use on the scalp, I just haven’t heard enough ‘talk’ about it there. In regards to the genital areas, this is another hot topic when it comes to both men and women alike, for men, it’s one of those things that people say, proceed with caution. The problem is that these areas are ‘very sensitive’ so the skin is sensitive and combine that with thick, coarse hair growth you can’t get carried away. I would be cautious of course but it does get done by quite a few men on a VERY low setting (i.e don’t think you can use it on a high setting in these areas).
You check your lipstick in the rear-view mirror one last time before getting out of the car, and to your horror, you spot a stray hair on your chin. You pull out your tweezers and vow to never again have to pluck on the go to rid yourself of unwanted hair, and you know it is time to explore permanent hair removal options. There are several types of permanent hair removal options available. Laser permanent hair removal uses pulses of light to destroy hair follicles and generally requires three to eight treatments. A permanent hair removal cream uses a chemical compound to break down the hair follicles. Just be sure to follow the directions exactly to avoid any reactions or possible chemical burns. No matter which type of permanent hair removal you are considering, reliable sellers on eBay offer a large range of products from which to choose. With convenient shipping options, you can have your hair removal tools delivered right to your door, so you can be sure you are hair-free the next time you venture out.
While you’re doing your initial series of treatments, and even afterward, you will have some hair regrowth. To prevent ingrown hairs that can get irritated or form lumps and bumps, I recommend doing regular exfoliation treatments with either facial scrubs and peels, as well as body scrubs for your arms and legs. There are also a wide range of new creams and lotions that help to inhibit hair regrowth between treatments.
The practice serves to cultivate a group oriented environment through the process of removing exterior signs of individuality.[citation needed] In many militaries head-shaving is mandatory for males when beginning their training. However, even after the initial recruitment phase, when head-shaving is no longer required, many soldiers maintain a completely or partially shaven hairstyle (such as a "high and tight", "flattop" or "buzz cut") for personal convenience and an exterior symbol of military solidarity.[citation needed] Head-shaving is not required and is often not allowed of females in military service, although they must have their hair cut or tied to regulation length.[citation needed]
This is not a method you can do at home, in most cases. There are some at-home devices, but you’ll probably have to get this treatment done at a spa. Depending on the type of treatment you get, it can be a permanent solution to your unwanted facial hair, but you may need multiple treatments before it’s completely gone. That is going to cost you a large chunk, so it’s not a realistic treatment for everyone to look at. Keep in mind that this may not work on some types of hair, especially lighter hair.
Hair removal is a pain (often both literally and figuratively). Shaving is tedious and time-consuming; waxing is expensive and painful. But if your seventh-grade self learned anything from those experiments with Nair, it’s that at-home hair removal products were seldom the solution. But there’s a new crop of hair-removal options that are challenging that notion. Whether you’re looking to temporarily get rid of hair on your face, on your body, or for good, there’s a product out there you’re going to want to try.

Now there are specialty razors to help you get back there. They have long, ergonomically designed handles to help you safely reach problem areas such as your shoulders, back and even your private parts. It’s a modern twist to an old-fashioned solution, but it’s still putting a razor blade to your skin. Because of this, you’ll get best results if your target area is wet and properly lathered up.

We’ve already talked some about ‘patch’ tests before using hair removal cream and it’s a point worth emphasizing. A patch test is just what its name implies – you choose a small amount of hair and apply cream to it to see how it works. It’s always best to perform the patch test on a less visible part of your body in case things go awry and you’re left with, say, a giant red mark.
How to use it: This hair removal cream works quickly; you could be hair-free in as little as five minutes. It's truly an amazing combination of powerful and gentle hair removal. You must read the instructions before using (especially on those sensitive parts of your body), but you can use it as often as you feel the need. Luckily, it comes in a pump bottle with a spatula for easy application and removal. If you still need assistance on the process for the easiest and best hair removal for men, we urge you to take a look at this video. (You may notice this vlogger is as serious about patch tests as we are!)

In terms of hair growth, there will always be a chance of errand strands/ uneven re-growth after treatment has ceased – that really varies from person to person. However, in general people will see sparser hair growth (less dense and thick) compared to pre-treatment even after stopping treatment for a prolonged period of time, since light treatment destroys/ degrades the hair follicles/ roots. Hope this answers your question!

If you have sensitive skin, you need to be careful with what you use. Some hair removal methods are just too harsh and may cause you to have a lot of irritation, redness, and maybe even swelling. Look for products that don’t contact your skin much. It’s probably best to avoid cream and serums to remove the hair. Those with less sensitive skin can use pretty much anything, as long as there are no other special considerations to be made for your skin type.
The formula of the hair removal cream should be gentle on the skin and effective on both fine and coarse hair. It should not have any adverse side-effects like skin irritation or burning. The cream should be able to remove the hair from the root and reduce future hair growth with every use. Creams with ingredients like aloe vera, vitamin E, and sweet almond oil are better for the skin as they protect it from dryness and itching.
I unboxed Braun's newest model, the Silk-épil 9, with a mixture of excitement and nerves. After juicing it up with a full charge, I flipped the switch to the first speed. The whirring heads were illuminated with a bright white light (an automatic function when the device is powered on to help you see the individual hairs) and were weirdly louder and faster than I expected. I'm supposed to run that along the surface of my skin?

The biggest issue with waxing is the potential for bacterial infection. “Each time the applicator stick is dipped back into the wax it can spread infection,” warns Jani. Waxing practitioners should always use a new stick for each client, and should really use a new stick for each application. Double dipping—especially when it comes to Brazilian bikini waxes, which removes hair from the labia and around the anus—is asking for trouble. “Those areas have thinner, more sensitive skin, and by continuing to reuse the same stick, there is greater potential for translocation of bacteria,” she says.
And just as with electric razors, cleanliness is next to godliness again here. "With epilation, tweezing or threading, there's always the risk of irritation or allergic contact dermatitis reaction, says Neil Sadick, clinical professor of dermatology at Weill Medical College at Cornell. The small abrasions sometimes left in the skin by plucking can be more susceptible to these kinds of reactions, so make sure that anything you're using for that job would make your doc proud. 
For electric shavers: Men's shavers use either rotary cutters, which spin, or foil cutters, which oscillate. Each has its devotees, although neither type showed a marked superiority among the men's models. All of the women's models we tested use foil cutters, and none shaved as well as the men's models in our tests. We advise women who want an electric shaver to use a men's model.

Available in two variants for fine to medium hair and medium to coarse hair, this kit from Olay consists of two products to give you a great hair removal experience. This kit contains one hair removal cream and one skin soothing balm. The kit takes around 8 minutes to give you a visibly smoother and hair-free skin. It can be used to remove hair from chin, jaw, upper lips and cheeks. The skin guarding balm needs to be used first to prepare the skin for the removal process and it also protects the skin from coming in direct contact with the hair removal cream. It forms a barrier between the skin and the cream so that the chemicals only work on the hair and not on the skin. You can massage the balm into the skin and then leave it for a few minutes before starting with the hair removal cream. Another feature of this cream is that it works for sensitive skin also without causing any burns or skin irritation. The price of this product is a little high but you can get it at a discount online.
Finally, I have found that it is best to use cool water to remove the cream when the time comes. The way that I do it is that I will hop in the shower at the 4 minute mark and wash off the cream, using my hands, in cool water. I set the temperature cooler than normal but warm enough that I am still comfortable. When I used warmer water (normal shower temperature), it seemed to burn more than when I used the cooler water. The first time I used the Nad's cream, I tried to wash it off using a wash cloth at the sink. That was an epic fail. Since then, I always wash it off in the shower.
Hi! I just read your article and it’s quite interesting. I used VEET hair removal cream 2 days ago and now i noticed that small hairs started to grow. I have long hairs in my arms and legs (our gene pool) before. The problem is that i’m not sure if these hairs will grow as they were before or maybe thicker (scary part ?). How can i maintain a soft skin that will last longer? What other products must i apply on my skin to lessen the hair growth after using hair removal cream? Badly needed ur response.. Thanks
