How to stop body hair growth

Laser hair removal

There are plenty of options for removing unwanted body hair.

Everyone has body hair, but how you treat it is completely up to you. What's great is that if you choose to get rid of unwanted body hair, there are several different ways you can get started on the process. 

Not every option will give you the results you want, however, so it's important to do your research and figure out what you're looking for. 

Short term 

Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are a few of the most common methods for getting rid of body hair. While waxing is on the higher end of the pain spectrum, it can be more effective at getting the results to last longer, because the hair is being plucked from the root. Hair will start to grow back within 3-6 weeks after treatment. 

Shaving and hair removal creams are generally pain-free, but hair grows back faster as it's only being removed from the surface, generally taking around 1-3 days to reappear. 

Long term 

For many people, the hassle of regular shaving, waxing or applying creams (not to mention the cost) can build up over time and make these options inconvenient in the long run. 

If you're after a permanent solution to stop body hair growth completely, laser hair removal could be the right option for you. This treatment works by passing a beam of light through to the pigment in the hair shaft and follicle underneath the skin. This generates heat, which loosens the hair and also disables the cells involved in hair growth, so future hairs won't grow again. 

This means you should see long-term results – and at Skinsmiths, we give you a guarantee for two years after your treatments finish so you can have peace of mind that it really works.
