Regardless of whether you are a man or woman, wayward hairs can be bothersome and aesthetically unappealing. Fortunately for you, there are many methods available to remove those hairs. Here are some options that could work for you. 

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal relies on a laser that targets the follicles. The procedure is usually performed in a doctor's office, but there are at-home devices available. Undergoing the treatment at your doctor's office is ideal though because you will have the benefit of a professional overseeing the hair removal. You can use the at-home device for the occasional touch-up.

Laser hair removal can require more than one session. However, over time, you should notice a reduction in re-growth. Laser hair removal is considered to be a long-term solution to hair growth. 

Electric Shaving

Electric shaving is an option that many are exercising because it is convenient and can be done anywhere. The shaver features a guard that protects you from the blades and is a quick method of hair removal. 

There is a downside to using an electric shaver though. The guard on the shaver can prevent a close shave, which could mean a less than perfect shave. As a result, re-growth will occur earlier than if you used other methods of removing the hair. 


An epilator works on removing hair by lifting it from its root and cutting it with the help of a blade. The result is a closer shave than you can get with an electric shaver. The effects of the shave also last longer. 

However, the epilator is not considered a pain-free method of removing hair. In addition to experiencing some slight pain while using the epilator, you could also suffer some irritation following the removal. The amount of irritation experienced depends largely on the sensitivity of your skin. 


Threading involves using a piece of thread to remove hair. The thread is twisted around the hair and quickly removed. Although it might sound painful, it is actually considered to be a pain-free method of removing hair. The effects of threading can last for a few weeks and when the hair does re-grow, it tends to be finer. Threading is commonly used on areas of the face, such as eyebrows and chin. 

There are other hair removal options that you should explore before making a final decision on which is best for you. Consult with your dermatologist for assistance in further assessing those options.
