Bleaching, What Is It? Is It Safe?

What is Bleaching? Bleaching facial and body hair is a method of hair removal, but actually, it does not involve hair removal at all. Bleaching is a process of making hair in facial and body areas, less visible. Bleaching is not a method of hair removal, rather it is a method used to make the hair a bit less noticeable, by actually blending the hairs with the skin. Bleaching is especially useful for areas that have thin but dark, noticeable hair like on the arms, face, or neck. Thus bleaching works well on hair that is not thick or long. How Does It Work? Bleaching is performed by applying a chemical composition to the desired area, which, after 10 minutes or so, removes the pigment from the hair. The composition is then removed from the skin using cold water. The process is very similar to that of hair coloring. Dark-haired women find that bleaching mustache areas are less expensive than…

Shaving 101 & How to Get That Perfect Shave?

What is Shaving? Shaving is the procedure of hair removal, by using a bladed instrument like a razor, to slice down the hair, to the level of skin or otherwise. Shaving hairs with a razor is the most commonly used technique for temporary hair removal. It is very less effective when matched to all the available hair removing treatments that we have across the world, as it merely cuts the hair till the skin surface level, while the root of the hair still remains. It may be the least effective technique of hair removal, but it also is economical of all. This is the reason that makes it the most popular of all existing hair removal procedures. You should also note that as this is a temporary hair removal method, the effects would last for very few days only. Shaving is universally practiced by men, in particular, to get rid of their facial hairs. Both men and women also prefer…

Short Wave Diathermy

Thermolysis is also known as short-wave radio frequency diathermy, radio wave, or short wave.It was developed in the 1940's when AC/DC current became much more common. This current is required because it is the electricity that kills the hairs. This is a process of hair removal that began in the middle of the twentieth century. It works by inserting a probe into the follicle, like you also do in electrolysis. Once the probe has been inserted into the hair follicle, the water molecules that are present in the hair begin to move around and produce heat. This is how the base of the hair is destroyed so that no hair can re-grow there in the future. For this reason, some people have actually chosen to combine this method with electrolysis. This is known as the blend method. The blend method is a lot quicker and it is also much more efficient, which is why it is becoming so popular. It…

Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis is the only known method of permanent hair removal. This procedure can be very intimidating though, since a needle has to be repeatedly inserted into each hair follicle. Another reason why a lot of people find this procedure intimidating is because of its cost. A treatment averages between $60 and $100 per hour. You will require at least 1 session per week for a period of several months to more than a year. (Considering the growth of hair and area in question). This procedure works by inserting a needle into the hair shaft and then sending an electrical current to the hair follicle. While the hair itself is dry, the surface that is located directly beneath the skin is wet and contains a lot of minerals. This wet, mineral rich area is where the electrical current is sent. When it reaches this area a chemical reaction occurs and the hair follicle is dissolved in a permanent manner. Usually you…

Electric Spring Rotator

An electric spring rotator is a device in that has a tight vibrating spring which is held next to the skin to catch multiple hairs at once and pull them out. This spring was in the shape of a bow with the coils were on the one side of the spring. These springs would then hold tightly onto the hair while the coils were spread apart. The motor would then cause the springs to rotate and flex. When you moved this machine across the skin, your hair would be caught up in the springs and get pulled out. The way in which this is done is actually quite similar to waxing. This procedure was actually first released by Epilady in 1986. Since then other companies have began selling this hair removal system. Two others are the Remington Lady Remington and the Smooth and Silky models. They use rotating discs instead of springs but work quite similarly to the Epilady. This…
