Best Ways For Removing Body and Facial Hair


There are many methods for removing hair; some temporary and some permanent. Here at Wake Health Medical Group we specialize in permanent hair removal, which is ideal for people who don’t want to deal with unwanted hair.

TIP: When you wax, pluck, or shave to remove unwanted hair, you’re actually stimulating hair growth.

If you have thick dark hair in any area, we offer IPL (intense pulsed light) laser hair removal, to remove the hair permanently. This is available for both men and women and works by the IPL emitting a broad spectrum of light directly into the hair follicle. The light energy turns to heat energy and damages or destroys the hair follicle resulting in permanent reduction in hair.

IPL Treatment Areas

IPL is effective in treating most areas of the body like legs, face, underarms, chest, backs, plus other areas. IPL works best on hair course hair; achieving optimal results and it’s much easier to pick up the pigmentation in the hair.

Contrast to dark course hair, clients with fairer hair will need a few more treatments to obtain results. Generally, six to ten treatment sessions are recommended with 4-6 week intervals. Of course, this depends on the area being treated.

Lessen The Risk

Women who regularly wax to remove hair from their labia area can cause unnecessary wear and tear over time. Additionally, waxing in this area can cause skin conditions like eczema to form.

And shaving — well, doing it in a hurry has its own risks. Many women tend to grab a razor and soap while in the shower instead of using appropriate shaving products. While this is certainly convenient and good multi-tasking for busy women, it’s also unsafe. Additionally, given that you cannot see the contours of the private area, women are prone to cuts and nicks when shaving.

TIP: If you use a disposable razor or blade, wet your skin first and use shaving cream. Shave in the direction the hair grows.
