Sugaring

Sugar and water (sometimes with lemon) are mixed in certain proportions until it becomes a thick sticky mass. Then, you make a ball of the mass and roll it on the skin; sticking as it rolls while pulling hairs out. The principle of sugaring, or sugaring depilation, is similar to waxing with one core difference: the hair is removed by the growth in order to reduce the possibility of ingrown hairs.

Advantages:

  • 100% natural, ideal for sensitive skin;
  • hair is removed from the root;
  • no allergic reactions or skin irritation; and
  • even the finiest hairs can be removed.

Disadvantages:

  • if performed professionally, the cost is about a third more expensive than waxing;
  • it may not remove the stiff hair that was previously shaved. Therefore, it is quite often advised to wax several times before starting the sugaring procedure; and
  • it’s quite painful, although less than waxing. It’s worth noting, that over time it’s likely you’ll stop feeling any pain.

Laser epilation

Laser hair removal devices of the new generation are designed for women with all skin types and hair colors. The wide screen allows removing a few dozen hairs from the face or body within a flash (only taking 5 minutes to treat one shin). What is important, is that it does not hurt but only slightly tickles and the redness will be completely gone within a couple of hours. You only need three sessions to say goodbye to unwanted body hair eternally.
It should be noted that the decision to get rid of unwanted hair in this way will force you to put up with some inconveniences for quite a long time. The fact is that the laser beam only affects and eliminates hair which is in the active growth phase, but “sleeping” bulbs are out of reach.

Advantages:

  • minimal pain, just slight tingling while the laser beam destroys a hair follicle;
  • It’s completely safe when the procedure is performed correctly;
  • water and air cooling in modern laser devices;
  • short procedure only taking a few minutes to treat 10 square centimeters of skin;
  • stable and sustainable result after going through with the series of procedures; and
  • it smoothes the skin its structure, improving the overall appearance.

Disadvantages:

  • hormonal disorders may result in it being ineffective;
  • chronic diseases and infections of the skin could occur;
  • diseases of the hematopoietic system and internal organs; and
  • it is not a method for pregnant women.
