What's an opinion about hair removal in men and male teenagers?

What's an opinion about hair removal in men and male teenagers?

Great: I think it can be great for guys with excessive hair. The nice thing about laser removal is that you can have the number of treatments that leave you with the amount of hair that you want to remain. Many men do not want to remove all the hair just cut it down significantly. Of course, if they want it all gone this can be done too. ...Read more

Are hair removal strips better than the alternatives?

Are hair removal strips better than the alternatives?

No usually: Use of strips or waxing will reduce a few follicles, but usually needs repeating. Laser will remove hair follicles permanently. It requires a series of treatments, as laser is effective on active, growing hairs (some are in resting phase and not susceptible). Important to know that dark hairs are more successfully removed than white ones. ...Read more

Hi, i would like to ask about permanent hair removal system that can be used at home. What brand you recommend for safe and effective hair removal?

There is none: Even laser hair removal performed in the doctor's office cannot claim to be permanent and total. We counsel our patients that it is permanent "reduction" of the hair. The devices used in doctors offices are very powerful and capable of causing serious damage. None are approved for use by the consumer at home and those devices that are have lesser results than those at the doctor's office. ...Read more

What are the best hair removal methods?

Hair removal: Hair removal techniques depend on the location of where you want to have hair removed. If it is dark hair then most methods including laser or intense pulse light can reduce and at times permanently prevent further hair growth. Lighter hair remains tricky as their is no melanin in the hair to uptake the energy for lasers so waxing or vaniqua ( a topical medicine) maybe the safest way. ...Read more

Could you please recommend some permanent hair removal pills and tell me about the benefits and risks associated with these pills?

Never heard of: I've never heard of pills that cause permanent hair removal. It would be great if they were available, had few/no side effects, and targeted only the 'bad' hairs and not the 'good' ones like your lashes, brows, and the hair on your head! ...Read more

What is better: shaving or hair removal cream?

Cream, but...: Depilatory creams dissolve hairs so that they wipe away. The hair left behind is usually softer than if it had been shaved. Razors cut hair at an angle, making the regrowth look thicker & more likely to develop ingrown hairs & razor bumps. The major downside to the creams is potential irritation & you need to use caution near the mucosa (mouth, vagina). Electric razors are a good option, too. ...Read more
