Say Goodbye to Shaving
Shaving is a go-to, quick, easy, and painless hair removal method that many of us opt for, especially when we are on the go. It’s a quick task that you can do in the shower as your conditioner sits in your hair for those extra few minutes. The one catch is that while it isn’t painful immediately, there can be some discomfort in the days to come as your hair begins to grow back in quickly.
Something many people don’t know and pay attention to is the sharpness of their razor blades. If your razor is dull, you are more likely to nick yourself or create an environment that welcomes ingrown hairs.
Even worse, your skin can become irritated, and you may experience razor burn. These little red bumps can be itchy and uncomfortable. They are also noticeable to the human eye, so people are often self-conscious about them even though they are completely normal and very common.
When you shave, you are slicing off your hair to the surface of your skin. Think about it this way - you’re only eliminating the tip of the iceberg. When you shave, your hair grows back quickly as it only takes a matter of days for it to surpass the surface of your skin again. If you shave, you are also often left with legs that don’t always look smooth and silky, as you can see the little hair follicles still hanging around. If you’re dedicating all of that time to hair removal, you may as well do something that will last longer.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) laser is a great way to remove pubic hair. This easy and practically painless hair removal method leaves your skin looking smooth and ensures that no razor burn or ingrown hairs develop. Getting to the root of it, IPL laser does more than just eliminate the tip of the iceberg.
While results aren’t immediate like they are with shaving, they do last longer. The KENZZI IPL Handset is designed to deliver results in three to four weeks. What’s great about IPL laser is that your results last longer. Since it targets the follicle, your hair will take longer to grow back. IPL laser works to eliminate hair, not temporarily.
IPL uses multiple wavelengths to target larger surfaces, making this hair removal method perfect for your entire body. Yes, this means you can use it on places such as your face, bikini line, or Brazilian.
A great advantage to IPL is that it can be done all from the comfort of your own home. Skip the salon trip and use an IPL Hair Removal Handset. Our handset has over ten years of flashes, which means you can be hair-free for a very long time and continue to skip the time and money on salon trips.
A bonus to IPL laser is that it not only helps remove unwanted hair but leaves your skin looking youthful and smooth. The handset has five different power settings, which allows you to adjust the settings to your skin tone and sensitivity. Another great way to prep your skin for this summer is with microdermabrasion. While this is not a form of hair removal, it is a fantastic way to get the confident skin we all want!
What many people believe to be the same hair removal technique as IPL laser is regular laser. While there are some similarities between the two, there are also some major differences. One is the type and amount of light that the methods use. IPL is a broadband pulsed light source. Laser, on the other hand, is a monochromatic light source most of the time. Another large difference is the surface area that the laser targets. IPL laser focuses on larger areas, whereas laser is great for focusing on more specific areas.
Laser hair removal works by emitting a light that your pigment in your hair absorbs. Although you don’t feel it, the light converts to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce your hair. This damage is a good thing, as it means that your future hair growth is limited.
Laser is a great way to remove pubic hair without shaving, although there are a few downsides. Laser requires in-person treatment. This means that you will need to book an appointment at the spa to have this done. With this booking can come hefty fees and prices for the laser, and they can never guarantee how quickly it could work. It is something that you need to keep up with, and so does require commitments to both time and money.
Electrolysis is an electronic hair removal method that permanently removes your hair from your body. Similar to regular lasers, this needs to be done by a professional and so can time up both time and money.
Electrolysis uses an epilator that sends radio frequencies into your skin, which in turn damages your hair follicles. This method is even more specific when it comes to surface areas as it treats each follicle individually.
The one nice thing is that electrolysis can be less expensive than laser hair removal at your salon, so it is something to look into! Electrolysis does not result in any of the pain or discomfort that shaving does.
Waxing and Sugaring
Waxing is the process of laying a sticky substance, the wax in this case, on the hair and quickly removing it from your skin. In doing so, you are removing your hair completely with it.
Waxing is another excellent method of pubic hair removal, although this does bring some temporary discomfort. It additionally can still result in ingrown hairs like shaving; however, there is no razor burn.
Often you should go to the salon to have your sensitive areas waxed. The price of a wax depends on your salon or spa and the area you are interested in having hair-free. Although, waxing can be done at home if you are careful and use the correct techniques.
Sugaring is similar to waxing, although the main difference is that the sugar is applied in the opposite direction of your hair growth and then removed in the same direction. Wax, on the other hand, is applied in the same direction and removed in the opposite.
Hair Removal Cream
Another way to remove your pubic hair without shaving is with hair removal cream. However, you need to ensure that the brand you use is safe for your more sensitive areas. These creams are typically over-the-counter chemical hair removers. They remove your hair by weakening the keratin, which causes your hair to fall out and then be easily wiped off.
The only catch is, many people often have reactions or irritations to the creams, and they don’t smell too great either.
Finding the right pubic hair removal method is specific to each individual. While something may work for you, it may not work for others and vice versa. Either way, one of these options will most likely work for you this summer and will be a great step up from shaving and all of the discomfort that comes with it.
What are you waiting for? The sun is out and waiting for you to enjoy it. Don’t let those pesky little hairs, razor burn, or ingrown hairs stand in your way of enjoying your summer.
