Different Types of Hair Removal

Hair removal is a highly personal process that’s different for everybody. Personal preference and comfort, cultural and religious beliefs, and even safety can factor into reasons why someone chooses hair removal. With so many techniques available, it can be a challenge to find one that’s effective, efficient, and long-lasting, but Vasu Skin Solutions’ laser hair removal in Boulder meets all of those goals.


Shaving is initially inexpensive and easy, although messy and time-consuming and can be harmful to our planet due to single-use plastic razors. The aftermath of shaving can include razor burn and ingrown hairs, which can cause pain and discomfort as well as run the risk of infection. The hair doesn’t stay away very long, either; most people need to shave every few days to keep unwanted hair at bay.


Picking up a pair of tweezers to pluck stray hairs can be an excellent way to eliminate a few stray hairs or shape your eyebrows, but it’s inefficient for dealing with large areas. Plucking your hair pinches and can sometimes result in ingrown hairs or scarring. If you don’t keep your tweezers clean, you could get an infection, too.


Waxing is one method of hair removal women and men often turn to for hair removal. While waxing does indeed give you soft baby skin for a few weeks, it can also cause pain – either from the hot wax or the force of the waxing tape yanking hair out of your skin. Waxing can also leave broken hairs behind. The worst part about waxing is that you need to let your hair grow out fully in between treatments.


Depilatory creams effectively dissolve hair, leaving soft skin behind. They’re easy enough to use in the privacy of your own home, but there are risks from the chemicals used in these creams. They can burn or cause an allergic reaction, especially if you use a formula designed for one part of your body on another.

Laser Hair Removal is Your Best Option

Laser hair removal in Boulder is not only effective and long-lasting but easy, comfortable, and discreet.
