Shaving Tips for Teen Girls
When to See a Professional for Hair Removal
You can go to a professional for waxing, which involves applying a layer of warm wax to the places you want hair removed. When the technician removes the wax, the trapped hairs are pulled out. Some teens find that waxing is less painful than "plucking" hairs in unwanted areas; others think waxing hurts.
With electrolysis, a technician inserts a fine needle into the hair follicle and applies an electrical current. While electrolysis can permanently remove hair, many teens find it uncomfortable as it irritates the skin. Laser therapy is another method of removing hair in small areas, such as the bikini area. This type of hair removal is expensive, and it may cause scarring. Both of these methods require multiple sessions to permanently end hair growth.
