Are you battling with excess hair growth on or around your neck? The excess hair do not just appear on the neck, they could be on any part of the body. But they are so easily visible when they grow on your neck. There could be endless reasons for excess hair growth; it could be hereditary for some while for some it is due to their racial lineage, for some it could be due to a medical condition while for some it is due to hormonal imbalance. Whatever the reasons are, the question is how to get rid of neck hair?
Here are some ways to get rid of excess hair
Laser Light Treatment
This is one of the most popular methods of hair removal. It removes the hair by directly sending the laser energy to the follicle and removes the hair from the root. You will not see the hair removal happening instantly. Since this works on the roots, it takes a while before the hair are gone. Once gone, they do not reappear quickly.
There is another technology which is bundled with the laser technology which uses suction to get more effective results. This technology is called Duet. Using this technology, the laser beams penetrate deeper and it allows for the treatment of larger areas simultaneously. It is also safe and convenient for the patients.
Who can get laser treated?
Laser technology can be used to remove hair on any part of the body. The people with light skin and dark hair respond more to this treatment. Laser treatment does not work at all on people with white hair and blond hair. For these people, electrolysis treatment is the best.
How long does it take for the results?
If you are getting treated for the first time, you may need 6 to 7 sessions. After that, you will require a visit once in a year.
This is the only hair removal treatment which you can safely and officially call permanent. This process uses very thin needles which reach down to the follicle and then treat at the cellular level. Electrolysis process destroys the cells responsible for hair growth. This means that once removed the hair will not appear again and hence it is a permanent treatment.
The thought of needles piercing your body could be disturbing. This treatment could be a little painful indeed. Therefore, it is only done after the application of local anesthetic ointments.
Who can use this treatment?
Experts say that this process is absolutely harmless and it can be done on any part of the body. It is good for all types of skin tones and hair colors.
How much time does it take?
It may take over 20 sessions for the effective Electrolysis treatment. Once done, it is permanent. It is not a very arduous task as each session doesn’t last longer than 10 minutes.
This is perhaps one of the oldest hair treatments available. However, the waxes used today are far different and far better than the ones that had been used in the past. Earlier, the wax materials used to stick to the skin. Today the waxes are mostly soy based and bond with the hair only and do not glue to the skin.
The wax cream is applied over the part of the body where the hair is to be removed. It is then covered with a strip of cloth especially made for this purpose. When the wax dries, the cloth strip is pulled off which plucks out the hair along.
Since the wax only bonds with the hair and not the skin, the process is much less painful than what it used to be earlier.
What are the applications?
Waxing can be used to remove hair from almost any part of the body including eyebrows, legs, arms, neck area, chin, lip area and genital area.
While waxing you need to take care of the hygiene. Waxing pulls the hair off from the root and leaves the follicle open leaving it at the risk of infections. It is advisable that you use an antibacterial lotion after the waxing hair removal process. If not done properly, waxing can cause skin infections. Waxing can be done at the spas but the home products are also available.
Removing unwanted hair from neck or from any other part of the body is not a difficult task anymore. There are many more treatments available which you can find out by searching over the internet. Although you’d be well served to take a proper decision with some thorough research. After all, who knows that after spending time and effort on getting rid of body hair tomorrow, when it’s gone, you might actually start longing for it. Naaaah!! Who are we kidding really? 😀
