Myths about Hair Removal

Hair Removal Staten Island is an option that many men and women take when looking to get smooth skin. However, there are some myths about laser, intense pulsed light (IPL), or Electrolysis Staten Island that simply are not true.

Many people believe that you should pick or squeeze ingrown hairs. This is something that you should never do. It is much better to exfoliate skin so the hair can push through naturally. Ingrown hairs can lead to health problems so it’s important to see a doctor at the first sign of infection.

While it may seem like a great way to soothe irritated skin, you actually shouldn’t apply moisturizer or oil after laser treatments or waxing. Applying moisturizer or oil blocks pores which can lead to spots or red patches. Aloe Vera is a better option to soothe skin.

While it may not be possible to avoid pain entirely, there are two steps you can take to reduce the pain when removing hair. Numbing the skin with ice or a numbing agent can help to ease the pain. Additionally, there is a decrease in pain as an individual develops a tolerance to the procedure.

If you have sensitive skin, hair-removal creams are not always suitable for your skin type. Many creams contain harsh chemicals, which can irritate the skin. Waxing and shaving can be less harsh on sensitive skin.
