Breast Hair Removal – What do I do?
Breast Hair is most common to men and women alike, which has no negative health implications. Women tend to go for breast hair removal mainly due to cosmetic reasons. Breast hair is found most prominent around the areolar (the dark area around the nipples) regions. Dont apply chemicals or pluck your breast hair. The area around the nipples is sensitive it may cause pain.
This hair, if left untreated, can thicken over time. The permanent and temporary breast hair removal treatments are quick, discreet and will work far better. Let us look at some of the ways of breast hair removal methods.
Breast Hair Removal Methods
- PLUCKING/TWEEZING – Tweezing is the easiest method for less hair on the breast. Use a pair of slant-tipped tweezers for tweezing, however, it is recommended to have a hot shower before the process as this opens up the pores making the removal of hair faster and painless. Rub in an astringent or a cooling lotion to soothen the area.
- BLEACHING – Bleaching is the best option for light skinned people and is not advisable for dark skinned people as the bleached hair stands out.
- WAXING – Waxing of hair on the breast might give a longlasting benefit but since the skin is tender in this area, waxing can cause a lot of pain and may bring out the red rashes.
- LASER – Laser is the permanent removal of hair, which uses a laser beam to destroy the hair follicles. The number of sessions for laser removal depends on certain parameters, which are the part of the body, hair texture, color of the skin, and the gender too, and is best suited for women with dark, thick hair. Be aware of the risks of hypopigmentation (white spots) and acne flare-up before proceeding with the laser.
- ELECTROLYSIS – Electrolysis is another permanent hair removal method and is considered safer than the laser. This method uses heat/chemical energy from a probe for the removal process. Electrolysis works on all skin types and color. Prior consultation with a professional might dispel all those doubts of the electrolysis process. Any after-process irritability can be relieved by some topical anesthetics.
