How to Remove Body Hair for Female?
Now we will focus on different kinds of hair removing techniques and its features that women use for removing unwanted body hair.
Depilation removes the hair up to the skin level, when epilation removes the hair from the hair follicle. There is no method that would remove the hair forever but we can stop growing hair for many years with sophisticated approaches.
Depilation is performed mechanically and chemically. The simplest and the cheapest method of mechanical depilation is with the razor blade. With a razor blade we can remove hair quickly and without pain in the shower or with the help of the cream.
The hair grows back quickly and can be thinner and stronger after shaving. Even the electric razor blade won’t remove the hair entirely. We can use a tweezer to remove specific hairs (eyebrows…). The procedure is a little painful but the hair won’t grow back for some time.
The chemical depilation is also available for removing body hair. You have different depilation creams, which melt keratin, but don’t get to the hair follicle. This is why the hair grows back and can be even thinner, stronger and darker after long time depilation.
Although waxing and depilation may be the same for us, the truth is that waxing is an epilation. With waxing we remove hair from the follicle, so under the skin. The waxing is performed mostly on the legs, arms, the back, abdomen, face and on the intimate pasts.
How to remove body hair for female? We can wax the hair with or without the strips. If we are using strips, we warm the wax and put it on the skin. Then we put strip on the waxed skin and pull the it fast in the opposite direction of the growing hair.
The hair can grow weakened, softer and lighter just in 2-6 weeks. After that, you must repeat the process. Redness of the skin can be the result of waxing, so it is necessary to apply a moisturizing cream after. It is the same procedure without using stripes when we put wax directly on the skin.
This type of waxing is named after Brazilian women and their underwear and bathing suits. They wear them on the beach and carnivals, where smooth skin is a must. The intimate Brazilian waxing is used to remove the hair on the whole bikini area.
This type of hair removal can be done with both waxing techniques (stipe and no stripe) and a special gentle wax. And what are the advantages of Brazilian waxing? Hygiene, smoothness and softness of the skin, and reduced hair growth are the advantages of a Brazilian waxing. With properly performed Brazilian waxing method you can avoid redness, irritation, ingrown hair and stronger growing hair.
Laser Hair Removal
The newest method of removing the hair is the laser hair removal with the IPL technology. It is the most permanent way to remove the hair.
The IPL uses an intense pulsed light that transforms into heat which penetrates in the skin and destroys the hair. The heat reacts on the melanin. This technique is ok to have; if you have darker hair (your hair has more melanin).
The follicle will get less food and oxygen due to IPL and will die. Don’t use IPL at summer because your skin will get darker, and the device won’t be able to recognize if it is a darker hair or a skin.
You can get 90% of hair removal after 8 treatments. You should have 6 weeks pause till next treatment. You will have to shave at the day of the treatment. This way the device will notice the hair thickness. IPL can be performed on the whole body for hair removal.
It is important that you don’t sunbathe or use the solarium one month before the IPL treatment. Also don’t use tweezer, wax, epilators or shave the hair you are about to remove with this sophisticated method. It is not recommended that you dye the hair or use photosensitivity medicines one month before the treatment.
This is the most efficient way on how to remove body hair for female. Ultrasound waves have more powerful frequency from the normal sound, which we can hear.

It can be used in all seasons and on harder accessible places as eyebrows, nose, chin, armpits, and the bikini line.
The technology is easy to use on different parts of pigmentation and even on the tattoo. So how the technology works? The ultrasonic head transforms the energy through the hair to the hair root, where it turns to heat. The hair absorbs the heat up to 70 ° C, which destroys the root or the hair vessel that gives food to the hair.
Threading is an old Oriental method, with which you can remove the most sensitive facial hairs. This method is appropriate for getting rid of the eyebrow hair, hair on the chin and upon the upper lip.
In threading you use antiseptic thread that forms a loop. You or the therapist pulls the hair through the loop and the hair is removed. The results will last for four weeks approx. With threading you can also remove the facial puff; if you have one.
