Laser Hair Removal Methods | Temporary Method

Temporary Hair Removal Method

"Depilation", or removal of hair to the level of the skin, lasts several hours to several days and can be achieved by
  • Shaving or trimming (manually or with electric shavers)
  • Depilatories (creams or "shaving powders" which chemically dissolve hair)
  • Friction (rough surfaces used to buff away hair)
"Epilation", or removal of the entire hair from the root, lasts several days to
several weeks and may be achieved by
  • Tweezing (hairs are tweezed, or pulled out, with tweezers or with fingers)
  • Waxing (a hot or cold layer is applied and then removed with porous strips)
  • Sugaring (similar to waxing, but with a sticky paste)
  • Threading (also called fatlah or khite, in which a twisted thread catches hairs as it is rolled across the skin)
  • Burning off with hot wax can damage the cells and prevent hair from ever growing in the unwanted spot again.
  • Use of Turmeric along with other ingredients like besan powder and milk
  • Epilators (mechanical devices that rapidly grasp hairs and pull them out)
  • Prescription oral medications
  • Drugs that directly attack hair growth or inhibit the development of new hair cells. Hair growth will become less and less until it finally stops; normal depilation/epilation will be performed until that time. Hair growth will return to normal if use of product discontinued. Products include the prescription drug Vaniqa, with the active ingredient eflornithine hydrochloride inhibiting the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase, preventing new hair cells from producing putrescine for stabilizing their DNA.
