The How And Where Of Hair Removal featured image

Today’s hair removal options range from virtually pain-free temporary treatments to permanent solutions that require several sessions. When it comes to choosing the method that’s best for you, it’s important to consider the pain factor, ease of use, length of treatment, cost and of course, the area of your body from which hair is being removed.

The face can be treated with just about any type of hair removal technique. Threading and waxing are best for the area above the lip (depilatories can be used here, too), sideburns, and eyebrows. Lasers can be used above the lip-this should be done by a doctor-but should not be used anywhere near the eyes.

When it comes to treating the hair on your legs or underarms, take into consideration whether or not you can get away with sporting some stubble for a while. If you can, try a laser or waxing, both of which require a some hair to be present in order to work; if not, a depilatory or shaving-the most popular option for these areas-is probably your best bet.

Since the hair on the bikini line tends to be thick and coarse, a laser method, although costly, is usually the best choice for long-lasting results. Far-less-expensive waxing works well, too, but can be uncomfortable.
