There are two ways to get rid of annoying vegetation: depilation and epilation. In the first case, mechanically or chemically removed hairs sticking out on the surface, the second is an attack on the roots — the hair follicles.

When waxing enough effort from 2 days to a few weeks, then shaggy recover and may even go up (this only applies to shave). Hair removal is irrevocable guarantees gradual disappearance of the boring of the coat: no follicle — no hair.

Boots, boots …

Our grandmothers used quite a sort of "people's" way of removing hair from the legs. Slippers they preferred boots of coarse wool, which when walking wiped the hair on my legs.

Contraindications for all types of hair removal:

  • skin disorders in the acute stage;
  • diabetes;
  • severe varicose veins;
  • diseases of the circulatory system in the stage of decompensation;
  • cancer;
  • acute infectious diseases and inflammatory processes;
  • pregnancy (relative contraindication).


Electrolysis is practiced in the world for more than sixty years old and has no restrictions on the color of their skin and hair. The meaning of the procedure: to kill the hair follicles (follicles) current.

The fine needle is introduced under the skin at the base of each hair follicle at the depth location. Then supplied to the discharge, which is enough to destroy the growing zone. Of these hair follicles never grow up, but in compensation can wake up "dormant." Of these bulbs in a month will be a fresh new growth, and have been working with her.

Electrolysis session lasts fifteen minutes (correction of eyebrows, mustache removal) to several hours (full legs). It all depends on the hairy parts of the body being treated. Average removed 800-1200 hairs per hour.

To permanently correct the shape of the eyebrows will need two sessions to get rid of hair on the upper lip — three or four to make the legs — four to six.

The procedure may bring discomfort, so in some beauty salons offer electrolysis at a local anesthesia.

Contraindications: propensity of skin scarring.


Hair can be removed with a light beam of a specific wavelength — laser. Beautician just leads manipulator in the skin, from time to time giving the "light." The laser destroys the dark pigment melanin contained in the hair follicle and hair growth stops automatically. He dies. The material is not affected.

This hair removal is suitable mainly ladies with dark hair. Do blondes and gray-haired in the follicles is almost no melanin: the laser on them will not work. Darkie and tanned, too, is to abandon this procedure: too much pigment. A laser — he is stupid, he does not care where melanin kill: from the hair or skin.

Beam processes at once one square centimeter (square tip), then there are a few bulbs that can remove hair is much faster and better than electrolysis. Lasts "communication with the laser" from 5-10 minutes (upper lip) to 1-2 hours (hip and thigh). To eliminate unwanted hair permanently, it takes 3-5 treatments at intervals of 1.5-2 months.

The procedure is almost does not cause discomfort.

Contraindications:receiving photosensitizing drugs, very dark or a recent (less than 2 weeks) tan.


Very similar to a laser, but it uses a light source with a high-momentum spectrum of the radiation in the range of 590-1200 nm. Differences: epilation takes better light and gray hair and allows you to process at one time larger area of skin.

Contraindications: Same as that of laser hair removal.


According to legend, this method of hair removal invention belongs to the Egyptian queen Nefertiti. Allegedly, she put on a body goo, and then remove it along with the hair. Now this procedure several improved.

As a "goo" used wax with various additives which "quiet", "pull" and "rejuvenated".

Before you do bioepilyatsiyu, you must first grow a — 5 mm shorter hair wax does not take. The actual procedure is as follows: skin smeared with a special softening agent, then cover with warm liquid wax, and when it hardens — remove it along with the hair flick. Against the grain. Remove wax residue oil, which soothes the skin and prevents irritation.

Repeated bioepilyatsii in combination with drugs for reducing hair growth will gradually lead to the fact that "bristle" will occur slowly and gradually becomes thinner disappear altogether.

That the procedure was less painful in some salons use a special lotion to the anesthetic.

Contraindications: epilepsy, hypersensitivity, benign skin tumors (papillomas, warts, moles).
