What To Do About Too Much Body Hair

By Brown Ezilon.com Articles Published 05/7/2010 | Beauty

Too much body hair has always been an issue with women, who are always looking for new, more effective ways to get rid of this excess hair once and for all.

Even men can find surplus hair a problem, especially around areas, such as the chest or the back. Women usually want to remove hair from their legs, arms, upper lip, bikini area or even their eyebrows.

The most effective hair removal treatment is laser hair removing, this system uses a beam of laser light, which destroys the hair at the root. It is important that it is a doctor or specialist who performs this kind of treatment, for although it is safe, it must be performed correctly, and you may need to have more than one session before the hair disappears completely.

Although this method is very successful, laser hair removal is quite expensive. It is ideal for larger areas such as legs and back, however at times hair may reappear again; it will be much finer and lighter.

Laser hair removal is not advisable for everyone; it is aimed at lighter skinned people, for darker skins take in too much laser energy, which can damage the skin. This treatment is not particularly painful; each person has different tolerance levels, depending on how fine the body hair is.

Anaesthetising gels can be used to numb the area slightly in order to soothe pain; this depends on what type of laser is used, although hair removal by laser is more a soreness than an actual pain.
