Neck Hair Removal Tips - Going Over the Best Options

April 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

Got a whole colony of unwanted hair sticking to your neck? Been bothered looking like a preserved caveman in your business suit? Well, it's about time you go over some alternatives to go hair-free and smooth as can be with these hair removal tips.

Plucking. A pair of tweezers doesn't cost much, effective in removing hair (just be sure you know how to do it properly and that the shaft must be long enough for the tweezers to grasp) but consumes a lot of time.

Shaving. This method merely cuts the hair off at the skin surface. Effective only for short term purpose since hair may start to grow back within one to three days. It is best performed with the use of some type of moisturizers to the skin to aid the razor in gliding over the skin, avoiding cuts. Common moisturizers include water, shaving cream, hair conditioner, or body wash.

Waxing. This method includes the application of a warm wax to the area with an applicator. Once the wax cools slightly, it is quickly removed from the skin, taking unwanted hair along with it. Effective in removing unwanted neck hair and its hair-free effect runs longer compared to shaving that is why you only need to do after four to six weeks to maintain. Caution must be used when heating wax to avoid burns.

Sugar waxing. Sugar wax is spread on the skin following the direction of hair growth which embeds hair. A piece of cloth or paper strip is patted onto the wax and then pulled off quickly, opposite to the direction of the hair growth, which pulls out the hairs from the follicles. This is easier to remove than the usual waxing since the sugar wax is water-soluble.

Depilatories. Thioglycolate with sodium hydroxide or calcium hydroxide is used to melt the hair away. Thioglycolate works by breaking disulfide bonds, chemical bonds holding skin and hair cells together. A depilatory is applied to the area and left on for 3 to 15 minutes, then wiped or washed off after. The chemical should be tested first on a small skin area at least 48 hours before applying it to a large area. Problem with the use of such method is skin irritation due to the use of such chemicals affecting the cells, testing it first on a small part with at least 48 hours could make us aware of the extent of its effects, and therefore applying hydrocortisone creams after hair may be of great help to decrease the extent of the side effects.

Laser Hair Removal. It is preferred by a number when it comes to hair removing problems since it yields excellent results. This method works by damaging the hair at the root, and discouraging growth. The procedure only takes a few minutes to complete, since the treatment area is relatively small, and results last much longer than waxing --- some may even have their neck hair permanently removed!

Electrolysis. This method is especially suited to smaller patches of hair. It works out by damaging individual hair follicles through the application of electrical current to follicle roots via needles, making hair strands to fall out of their places and discouraging hair growth in the area. You can go hair-free for a longer period, requiring fewer visits to the clinic. But be careful with the side effects, okay? These may includepain, infection, keloid formation (for people who are susceptible), hyperpigmentation, or hypopigmentation... and a sickly pocket (since the procedure costs too much).

Vaniqa. A prescription-only topical cream, FDA-approved, for reducing and inhibiting the growth of unwanted facial hair. It has Eflornithine hydrochloride, which works by inhibiting an enzyme needed for cell reproduction and other cell functions necessary for hair growth. The cream is applied twice a day to the area, and results may be observed after 4-8 weeks. Vaniqa continues to reduce facial hair growth for up to 8 weeks after discontinuing the treatment, therefore re-application is needed to maintain results.

Feel free to choose what fits your budget, time and lifestyle. You may also want to consult a hair removal specialist for this. Choose your method and say goodbye to those unwanted hairs!
